    • Colorful Kitchen Makeover

      Before the renovation, this kitchen was perfectly functional -- but perfectly boring. Gingham wallpaper jump-started the cottage-style makeover, while new glass-front cabinet doors, updated trim, and pretty fabrics kept the momentum going. Bold bursts of color and beaded-board detailing complete the look.

    • Updated Kitchen Cabinets

      Modern appliances improve this kitchen's function, while new maple cabinet doors update the look for lower cost than replacing the entire cabinets. Inexpensive porcelain fence insulators serve as cabinet knobs, and laminate countertops mimic the look of metal.

    • Country Details

      A mix of red, white, and yellow dramatically brightens this country kitchen. The combination of standout items, such as the Borden Dairy Department sign, and subtle pieces, such as the wrought-iron curtain hangers and cabinet pulls, creates a space full of captivating details.

    • Chef-Friendly Kitchen

      This new vintage-style kitchen -- with a splash of country -- is a chef's paradise: granite countertops, wall ovens, a six-burner stove, and side-by-side full-size sinks, each with its own faucet. The kitchen's two plate racks show off transferware, ironstone, and silver trays.

    • Farm-Flavor Kitchen

      New cabinets, countertops, and floors reflect a relaxed, farm-flavor style. White cabinets and trim maximize the light reflecting from the new, larger sink window. Beaded board covers the backsplashes between the sink and range, and mottled granite on the island unites the kitchen's colors.

      Improved Kitchen Design

      For an improved layout, the existing kitchen in this 1920s Arts and Crafts-style bungalow was combined with an adjacent powder room and mudroom. A center island and a wall of cabinetry with two full-size farmhouse sinks make the plan work for two serious cooks and their guests.

      Family-Friendly Kitchen

      The highlight of this kitchen-remodeling project, the new island features a top made of wood from an old farm table. A stainless-steel oven and range hood add a modern twist to the country-style space, and glass jars that store kitchen essentials double as design accents.

      Cream-Color Kitchen

      The first step of this kitchen makeover was painting the cabinets, soffits, and walls. The outdated blue-and-white tile backsplash was covered with beaded-board wainscoting, and a new coat of white paint and patterned cushions transformed inexpensive barstools.

      Budget-Friendly Kitchen

      Country kitchens are defined by cheerful splashes of color. Here, red coupled with country accents warmed the bland white kitchen for less than $2,000. Other simple, inexpensive changes -- including wallpaper and new glass-front cabinet doors -- fostered the transition from sterile to stellar.

      Clear Definition

      This new kitchen meets all the needs of a busy family. Leaving the island free of appliances makes this work center a perfect place for children to do homework or prepare a snack. A hanging cabinet with glass on all sides helps define the edge of the kitchen without closing off the room.

      Unique Work Space

      Trading a bulky built-in island for a compact Chinese table leaves more room for maneuvering in this small kitchen while still offering an efficient work space. Entertaining is easy in the well-outfitted room that includes a full-size freezer, a high-Btu cooktop, two dishwashers, and a wine cooler.

      Creative Kitchen Renovation

      On the island and backsplash, wood panels mimic the grooves of vintage beaded-board planks but are easier to install. After thorough preparation, the original cabinets received two coats of durable, easy-to-clean enamel paint. An antique English peg rack on the island is a handy repository for dish towels.
