Run My Makeover 107: Multipurpose Kitchen

Browse before photos of the Ellis's dated kitchen. Currently used as both the family's cook space and an in-home bakery business, this kitchen needs more storage, prep space, updated appliances and better lighting.

  • Homeowners In Their Kitchen

    Meet homeowners Chaz and Ashley Ellis, their small, '70s kitchen needs a major overhaul.

  • Kitchen With Lack of Storage

    Ashley's 2-year-old home-based bakery business has grown beyond the small amount of cabinet storage and prep space available in their kitchen.

  • Dated Appliances

    The kitchen's dated appliances, tile backsplash and countertops are original to the home which is 40 years old.

  • Chalkboard Kitchen Door

    The kitchen's single pantry is far too small to store food and cookware for both the family and bakery business. The homeowners would like to add a second pantry and eliminate the soffit and extend the cabinets to the ceiling for added storage.

  • Kitchen With Poor Lighting

    The existing lighting is ineffective for everyday tasks but is especially too dim for the detail work needed when Ashley is decorating cakes.
