I don't know about you, but if I walked into this kitchen, I would assume I was looking at the after. Everything looks good already. There is lots of light, nice cabinets and appliances; but this was only the beginning.
Norwegian blogger, Nina Holst, has taken her kitchen from good to great on a budget and the whole process is documented on her blog Stylizimo.
In the 'during' phase, you'll notice that the floors have been changed out, which I think makes a big difference, actually. The room feels even more open and bright, without the dark vinyl tile. The floor that you are seeing in this phase is a white, vinyl coating.
Now for the after...
This latest makeover from Nina is more of a transformation. The cabinets, pulls, and countertops are completely different, the flooring has been updated once again, and the appliances have been camouflaged behind built-ins. Another beautiful look.
What do you think? Which version of this kitchen is your favorite - the before, during, or after?
