Budget Friendly Kitchen Facelift: From Somber Red to Sunnyside Yellow

Budget Friendly Kitchen Facelift: From Somber Red to Sunnyside Yellow

Red is an awesome color...BUT it does NOT belong on the walls of a small kitchen. That is just a no-no!!! This small galley style eat-in kitchen was in desperate need of a makeover. There was only a small budget to work with, but we were able to work it out!!! My client actually loved the red walls. Luckily, I was able to persuade her to change the paint color. We decided on yellow for the new wall color. The bright & bold yellow would actually make the space look a bit larger than what it really is. To keep the client satisfied, I promised to still incorporate the red as an accent color. The cabinets were that old ugly oak that I absolutely DESPISE!!! I really really really hate oak, but I digress. The countertop was a low grade laminate that also needed to be replaced. And for some reason there were ceramic tiles on the WALL. Yup, I said...the WALL. Who does that????? O_O The Work Order - Remove the existing cabinets - Tear up ceramic flooring - Remove ceramic wall tile - Seal up 2nd entryway into kitchen to allow a better flow - Paint - Install new ceramic tile flooring - Install new cabinets & hardware - Install new countertop - Install new sink - Reupholster kitchen chairs - Add glass tile backsplash - Add wall decor - Change window treatments - Install new light fixtures   before 5 on astralriles.com before 4 on astralriles.com BEFORE kitchen 1 on astralriles.com before 3 on astralriles.com before 6 on astralriles.com before - kitchen wall tile on astralriles.com   This door way is an entrance between the living room and the kitchen. Since there are 2 entrances to the kitchen, I chose to have this doorway closed off in order for the kitchen to flow better. Closing this off also benefits the flow of the living room as well. before - open wall on astralriles.com And the demo begins.... b4 - kitchen demo on astralriles.com b4 - kitchen demo 2 on astralriles.com Even the smallest renovation budget can yield the most amazing results!!!!
