Glad I"m not the only one that thinks the before was better.

The before is way better. More interesting, unique.

I prefer by far the Before picture. The counters look sharp, the wood panels are lived in, but inviting and warm, the floor tiles are funky, retro and fun... I wouldn't mind shanging the lighting but it's something else. In the After picture, the overall effet is cold and cheap. The green tone that was chosen for the cabinets is dulled and clashes with the rest of the dining room. The cabinet knobs are not pleasing to my eye at all, neither is the counter material. Feels heavy and sterile.
Just changing the lighting would have done it, in my opinion. Not the best makeover, at all.
