Kitchen Makeover in Spring Colors

Decorating Den designer Joan Suzio, LEED, AP, started out thinking she was just helping touch-up a dated kitchen; but one thing led to another, and a major kitchen overall completely turned the space around.

Outdated Before

Before the makeover, this kitchen was dark and dated, with a floral wallpaper that overpowered the space.

New and Improved

After the remodel, this transitional kitchen feels more open. Overpowering floral wallpaper was replaced with a charming floral valance, and two decorative pendant lights act as the focal point above the new island.

Dark and Dreary

Too many patterns overwhelm this cozy space, and the dark colors only make the room feel smaller.

Spring Green Breakfast Nook

In the updated breakfast nook, green upholstered chairs match the perkiness of the spring green walls. A large hutch is used for storage and to display a few favorite pieces.

Countertop Catastrophe

Dark green countertops and bright white cabinets don’t blend well in this much-used space.

Relaxing Shades

New countertops and creamy gray cabinets blend beautifully, giving off a calm, relaxed feel in this remodeled kitchen. A geometric wall tile design breaks up the backsplash.
