Make cooking, dining, and entertaining easier with a 
kitchen that is full of style and amenities as it fits 
your family's needs. Get inspired by these amazing 
before and after kitchen makeovers, and 
start planning for a kitchen redo of your own.

Kitchen
Before: Cute but Cramped
This cottage kitchen was already quite cute; it just needed 
a more efficient layout and a little more light.
Awkwardly placed appliances and an overscale island 
took up valuable kitchen space, while doorways 
cut up even more of the 25x12-foot floor space.
The ceiling was oppressively low-only 7 feet 10 inches, 
adding to the confined feel.

Kitchen
After: Sweet and Spacious
By rearranging traffic patterns, removing walls, and improving the location of appliances, this kitchen got the extra light, space, and style it needed. Four tall windows above the sink, a creamy white palette, and reflective surfaces make the room feel open and airy. A coffered ceiling, arched doorways, and crown moldings reinforce the kitchen's cottage appeal.


Kitchen
 Before: In Need of Repair
This kitchen needed a complete overhaul of its cabinets, surfaces, and appliances
it had barely been updated since the home was built in 1966. An unnecessary row of upper and lower cabinets sliced the room in half, leaving a cramped space for cooking and another for dining.
Kitchen
After: Eco-Friendly Remodel
With a passion for all things green, the homeowners made sure their buying and building decisions were eco-friendly. They turned the layout 90 degrees, which opened up the spaceand brought in more natural light from a bay window by the banquette. They installed environmentally friendly materials and appliances: certified eucalyptus hybrid wood cabinetry, paint with no volatile organic compounds (zero-VOC), xenon lighting, recycled-glass tile backsplash,
and Energy Star-rated appliances. Article Continues

Part 2-Green and Eco Friendly Kitchens-Organic Style


Kitchens with Organic Style-Part 2 / 2 1/2

old world rustic kitchen
Reclaimed Materials
Reusing wood invokes a sense of history and adds natural beauty to the kitchen.
Reclaimed wood was used in the ceiling beams and cabinets. A table was repurposed into a sink base.
curved kitchen
Contemporary Curves
A gentle curve enhances the natural flow of this kitchen.
Open shelving keeps everyday items easily accessible.
herb plant
Plant Herbs
Include a small herb garden in a windowsill of the kitchen,
and you'll be able to enjoy cooking with the freshest ingredients.
cabinets with cross bars
Refinish Cabinets
Refinishing existing cabinetry saves natural resources
-- such as wood -- from being unnecessarily destroyed.
A fresh coat of paint and new crossbars on the cabinet doors
give this kitchen a stylish makeover without wasting supplies.
kitchen with exposed brick wall
Exposed Brick Wall
Leave an existing brick wall visible.
It reduces remodeling costs, adds character, and supports the minimalist look of the entire room.
pantry with open shelves
Open Pantry
Stock the open shelves of a pantry with bulk grocery products.
Buying in bulk reduces waste from packaging.
kitchen with bamboo window shades
Bamboo Accessories
Use natural materials in accessories, such as window treatments.
These bamboo shades add warmth to a mostly white kitchen.
kitchen cabinets with fabric panels
Fabric Panels
Soften the look of a kitchen with fabric panels in wall cabinetry.
The fabric can be updated regularly to match current trends.
Select organic fabrics to make the room even more eco-friendly.
cabinetry pulls
Recycled Materials
These decorative cabinetry pulls were once railroad ties.
Repurposed for the kitchen, these recycled knobs add character.
