For this budget-friendly kitchen remodel, designer Anisa Darnell paints the existing lower cabinets a crisp white. The upper cabinets are replaced with open shelving, which provide storage for all the homeowners' pretty dishes. A pair of pendants hang above the island, which features extra cabinets and open niches. Darnell uses baskets for easy-access storage.
Family Gathering Spot
Even though the kitchen is mostly white, Darnell adds interest through different textures. The backsplash is a trellis design, while white beadboard is installed on the walls. The space is made family friendly by having the breakfast area open up to the kitchen.
Open It Up
To open up the kitchen, a pass-through is installed so that the kitchen and living room are now connected. Cream countertops flow seamlessly with the white cabinetry, while chrome handles and glass knobs add a little shine to the space.
Rustic Breakfast Area
A farmhouse-inspired table is surrounded by galvanized metal chairs for an eclectic, rustic look. The capiz shell chandelier adds elegance and brightness to the area.
