I'm not sure if this kitchen makeover is stunningly surprising or surprisingly stunning. It might be stunning for obvious reasons, but it's surprising for what DIDN'T change. Namely the flooring, the appliances AND the cabinets. Yes, the knotty pine (?) cabinets remained as did their dark hardware. Think with all that remained the outcome couldn't possibly be stunning? Check it out:
Designer Jennifer Stagg had the vision to update as necessary with a new quartz countertop, a white subway tile backsplash and new lighting and decor elements. Her client is so pleased with the outcome she/he "almost" likes the wooden cabinets, which were unchanged because of budget considerations. Personally, I think they look completely purposeful and are a warm and surprising alternative to the typical white cabinet "after pics we're so used to seeing these days. What do you think? Yea or nay to the look of the natural wood?
