Updated, Open Kitchen

As seen on Fixer Upper, the kitchen went from plain, white and ordinary to dramatic and inviting.

BEFORE: Bland Black and White Kitchen

The original kitchen was part of a 1980s tract home occupied by empty nesters. The dated, black-and-white cabinetry did not work for the occupants, who wished their kitchen had a more European look.

BEFORE: Cramped U-Shaped Kitchen

The former kitchen was a cramped U-shape. The lack of space contributed to difficult traffic flow. In addition, there was little function to this ill-formed kitchen.

BEFORE: Dated Kitchen With Awkward Layout

The preexisting kitchen suffered from an odd layout, where additional storage was located on the other side of a wall that ran parallel down the center of the room. The upper cabinets created a claustrophobic feel in the narrow space, while the monochromatic color palette looked bland.
