1. Cozy and Bright Small Kitchen

Here's a before and after set of photos to help you see what we do to reinvigorate small kitchens. To create this warm effect, we painted the cabinets with fresh Sherwin Williams 7006 Extra White. Our cabinet dress up package takes the end of the lower cabinet bank and the island from builder's grade to an elegant focal point.

This was a super affordable and life-changing white kitchen cabinet makeover for our Fairfield homeowner. There's so much value in feeling better inside the space you live.

2. Modern and Refreshing

This functional space features a white kitchen cabinet design contrasted with a white-gray countertop and Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray on the walls. Our customer requested the cabinet dress up package showcasing custom trim and molding on the island.

The addition of clear glass panels in one of the upper cabinets contributes to the general kitchen décor. The glass panels also catch the light and reflect it back into the room. To create interest, we added a tile backsplash, a new farmhouse sink, and new cabinet hardware.

3. From Drab to Fab

We painted the ceiling and finished these cabinets in SW 7006 Extra White to compliment the existing countertops. The space was fully refreshed after we painted the walls SW 7004 Snowbound.

We then added a textured and subtly patterned glass tile backsplash to give the space depth and interest. The kitchen transformation is absolutely stunning.

4. Checkerboard Black and White

Can you believe this is the same kitchen?! This is one of our all-time favorite kitchen makeovers. We upgraded the cabinets with crown molding, and added light rail to the bottom of the cabinets. Clear glass panels offer low-maintenance beauty to showcase your treasures. Brand new granite countertops and a glossy black backsplash accented by bright white grout.

We painted the upper cabinets in SW 7006 Extra White. It's crisp and clean, and highly reflective. The lower cabinets feature SW 7069 Iron Ore. Our customer extended the island and chose a Quartz Andes countertop to enhance function and space.

5. New Cabinet Doors and Glass Inserts

We replaced the old oak doors with new solid maple doors, used the existing boxes, and added 4 glass panel doors. The glass inserts increase the light in your kitchen and make it appear larger.

Then we refinished the cabinets in SW 6385 Dover White. Matte black hardware with a matching faucet provided the finishing touches.

6. Custom Radiance

The dazzling light in this kitchen was created with intentional design choices. We upgraded the cabinets with crown molding, and added light rail to the bottom of the cabinets. Clear glass panels offer low-maintenance beauty to showcase your treasures. Brand new granite countertops and a hexagon tile backsplash provide a cool focal point over the stove.

The wall cabinets were refinished in SW 7008 Alabaster and the Island in a charcoal black SW 7076 Cyberspace. The handles add a great finishing detail to accent the cabinets just perfectly.

Basics of Kitchen Design

Kitchen design is important and should reflect your personal preferences while keeping your kitchen functional. If your space already has a great workflow triangle and your cabinet bases are sturdy, save time and money with cabinet refinishing.

Boho and Farmhouse styles dominate in Cincinnati kitchen remodels. Popular design elements include farmhouse sinks, custom range hoods, bold color contrasts, and multi-function kitchen islands.
