Kitchen Remodel Ideas Before and After: Top 5 Picks

Kitchen Remodel Ideas

Are those minor kitchen annoyances getting on your nerves? Perhaps you’re dealing with limited bench space during dinner preparation or a kitchen layout that keeps you from watching the kids while you whip up snacks. And having the dishwasher far from the sink is so inconvenient!

Don’t worry! Your kitchen should be your friend, not your adversary. If you’re nodding in agreement, it’s time to consider a kitchen renovation. Look at these five kitchen remodel ideas before and after Nto help you actualise your dream kitchen. 

#1. Maximising Kitchen Space and Functionality

People have been spending more time at home in recent years, but sometimes, our homes don’t quite meet our needs. That’s where our team comes in—we specialise in transforming spaces to fit owners’ requirements.

Our main goal for one of our projects was to optimise space utilisation and functionality. We took a strategic approach to layout and design. By rethinking the kitchen’s configuration and removing barriers, we achieved a seamless flow between the kitchen and adjacent areas. The result is a more open and connected living space. We introduced custom cabinets and a raised bar seating area to address storage and counter space needs, turning the custom kitchen into an adaptable hub for cooking, dining, and leisure.

#2. Maximising Kitchen Bench Space & Storage

From coffee makers to electric kettles and vegetable choppers, a new kitchen device is always catching our eye. The challenge lies in finding enough space to store them all! That’s why more and more homeowners are seeking ways to increase bench space and storage without compromising style.

One of our recent projects perfectly illustrates this balance. The homeowners wanted a welcoming kitchen for hosting friends and family, with ample storage and bench space. Our team rose to the challenge by seamlessly integrating the kitchen with an underutilised dining area, optimising the available square footage.

The outcome is a spectacular transformation! By merging the kitchen and dining room, natural light poured into the expanded space, breathing new life into every corner—custom cabinetry solutions, like built-in spice drawers and pull-out utensil cabinets, enhanced functionality and aesthetics. And let’s not forget the expansive kitchen island with built-in bookcases—it looked great and provided much-needed bench space and storage.

#3. Adding More Space and a Seating Zone to the Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home for many homeowners. However, your kitchen can be less inviting if it’s small and cramped or lacks a place to sit and gather. Here, expanding the kitchen and creating a seating area becomes vital. A trend that boosts functionality and comfort.

In one of our recent full-home renovations, we seamlessly combined spacious kitchen areas with inviting seating spots. The key was adding a generous dining room connected to the kitchen. With curved ceilings and large windows, this extended space filled with natural light became a focal point for family gatherings. We got creative and added not one but two islands inside the kitchen. One of those islands features a unique eat-in kitchen table—a perfect area for casual weeknight meals and lively conversations.

#4. Adding an Island for More Space and Functionality

Islands are all the rage today when it comes to kitchen renovation. That’s because an island can lend practicality and style to the kitchen that homeowners long for. In one of our projects that our team managed, our client had a kitchen that didn’t quite meet their daily needs. They wanted more space and better workflow. So, we got to work! 

The highlight of the renovation is a sleek island. It’s not just any island—it’s meticulously designed to provide extra counter space, seating, and storage. Visualise a hub for meal prep and casual dining, perfect for everyday meals and entertaining guests!

#5. Adding Colour and Personal Style to Your Kitchen

White kitchens aren’t as popular as they used to be. Homeowners now want something more exciting—fun colours and a personal touch. In another featured project, we turned a plain kitchen into a lively space reflecting homeowners’ preference. The family wanted character and warmth in their kitchen, along with a bright colour scheme. Our team was all in, working closely with them to make their dreams come true.

We introduced a stunning cabinet to display their glassware and custom cabinetry in a captivating blue-green shade. We carefully chose every detail to match their unique style. Inspired by Adele’s timeless elegance, the homeowners created a kitchen that oozes sophistication and charm.
