Before & After | 3 Kitchen Updates with Major Impact

A common misconception about remodeling your kitchen is that you need to tear out and completely change everything to transform the space. Oftentimes, it only takes a few kitchen updates to make a big difference in your kitchen. My team recently completed a project with Nyla Kurtz of MD Dezinz in which three kitchen updates made a world of difference.

Mahogany Kitchen - ACo

1. CABINETS: One of the biggest changes we made was to the cabinets. We chose a darker wood, which contrasted nicely with the lighter floor. This change gave the room a fresher, more modern feel. We also added significantly more storage and accessibility.

Granite Countertops - ACo

2. COUNTERTOPS: We switched to light granite counters to stand out against the new darker cabinets. We also extended the length of the center island, creating more space for seating or food preparation. A new light fixture overhead adds some unique style.

Matchstick Backsplash - ACo

3. BACKSPLASH: The final big change was the backsplash. This area was very dated and in dire need of an upgrade. We went with a lovely tile pattern that creates a focal point and makes the kitchen look longer. We also added some lighting under the cabinets to really show off this area!

When you put the “before” and “after” side-by-side, the difference is amazing. With just a few major updates, the kitchen is completely transformed. It doesn’t even look like the same room!
