Explore the before and after photos of these five unbelievable kitchen renovations, and see what our interior design expert has to say - including how to get the look in your own kitchen!

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"An overuse of bland maple wood drowns this kitchen making it look washed out, whilst dated furnishings such as the ceiling light, utensils and wall art make it feel very old fashioned."

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Refreshed and bold, white cupboards and island top contrast deep mahogany wood flooring for a striking finish. Sleek furnishings, such as a brass hanging chandelier and silver appliances, complement the contemporary vibe."

To ensure a smooth finish, prime the cupboards with Kilz Clean Start before painting. Invest in a top quality paint, such as Benjamin Moore Advance, to get the best results - well worth the extra cost to prevent peeling and a poor finish.

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Mismatched wood and dark appliances create a gaudy appearance, drawing the kitchen in with too many contrasting rich and dark tones."

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Gentle shades of beige contrast cream and slate, whilst the chunky cabinets have been replaced by spacious open shelving. These are adorned with neat crockery and vivid green herbs for a beautiful, rustic kitchen vibe."

"Bulky pine wood island, cabinets and frames make is difficult to see anything else in this kitchen - the eyes are drawn inwards, making the space feel confined and overcrowded."

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Delicate, light coffee and cream hues replaces the unkempt natural pine, making the kitchen feel instantly more open. Usability is increased with a seating area and corresponding lapboard on the kitchen island, which now features a graceful, white marble top."

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Dated wallpaper and tiles, dull coloured bricks and bland wood create a really drab feel in this kitchen. A lack of vibrant colour makes it look tired and nondescript."

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Pristine white replaces the drab wood, with chrome handles adding a modern touch. Wood is glossed and used as a kitchen island feature, making it stand out against the white bricks. A deep hue wood floor adds a rustic vibe, contrasting the lighter tones throughout the kitchen."

An open kitchen island (Home Depot) teamed with wicker storage baskets (Ikea) complement the style of this kitchen perfectly.

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Boring, plain wood cabinets create a dingy vibe, marring the sleekness of the oven with a dull hue of cardboard. Gaudy red counters and black tiles clash with the cabinets, too."

Our Interior Design Expert says...

"Fresh white cabinets and tiles are complemented by glossy slate counters and silver utensils. This kitchen resonates a chic and minimal style!"

Go for a metallic silver integrated extractor hood, such as Luxair cooker hoods, and complement this with matching Ikea silver toaster and kettle.
