All I can say is WOW! These absolutely incredible kitchen makeovers are proof that no matter how small or unworkable your kitchen is, there’s always a way to make it beautiful.

Just a little cluttered, don’t you think? This kitchen looks more like a dungeon. There’s no natural light and it’s closed and confined.

What a difference! Love those colors. It’s balanced with green walls, textured black cabinets, warm hardwood floors and light countertops. The room is open and airy with natural light pouring in.

This tiny kitchen became a functional piece of art!

This one wasn’t too terrible before, but look what a little tiling can do!

The red patterned tile work adds a perfect splash of color. White cabinets and a stainless steel drop-in sink brighten the room and visually open the space.

This Vancouver waterfront penthouse had been left vacant for 10 years. Omer Arbel of New York took a blank slate and transformed it into a contemporary masterpiece.

Beyond awesome. Arbel installed a backlit translucent onyx with stunning light fixtures that drape asymmetrically. And a bright green floor. How’s that for thinking outside the box?

Husband and wife team Stephen and Kristen King of Connecticut-based Studio Snaidero Greenwich gave this mid-century kitchen a major upgrade.

The pearl-lilac cabinetry and stainless steel appliances add a cool & fresh feel to the kitchen, while the warmer-colored stone tile balances the overall look.

Cluttered and dated, this small Chicago kitchen needed to spread its wings. Scott Dresner of the Progressive Design Group in Michigan had a vision. And the homeowners listened.

Wow. The new kitchen layout is infinitely more functional; everything is within easy access. The designer took the bland low-end wall cabinets and created a modern art piece. And the granite counter tops and backsplash tie in beautifully.
