How To Transform Your Kitchen Without Renovating

When I met this fun Boynton Beach family of restauranteurs they told me that they loved the layout of their home and they really loved the “bones” of the house, but that it needed a lot of updating.  Full scale renovations, especially for the kitchen and bathrooms, however, can be quite costly. They asked me how they could maximize their budget and get a full refresh without lots of construction and renovating. I get this question a lot in my design firm, which is why we created our Furnishing Service. I always say that it is truly unbelievable what furniture and paint can do. The service also includes floor coverings, drapery and lighting.  Add in some accessories and you can see a TRUE transformation of your home!  In the kitchen below, we painted the cabinetry and added new hardware.  We added some gorgeous wallpaper and replaced the barstools. A cost effective way to get a complete kitchen makeover. The results speak for themselves…

The original breakfast nook had a built-in banquette. I usually love this type of seating, but all of the dark finishes and pillows made this space feel so heavy. We wanted a light, bright and happy eating area, so we removed the built in and added a beautiful table with chairs upholstered in high performance fabric for easy cleaning.
