But there was only one problem: The kitchen in the new space looked very much like the kitchen in their old space.

Let's face it, there's a lot of kitchen makeovers out there that, although they look fabulous after, they all kinda look alike. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing; they're popular for a reason.
