Before & After: Kitchen Makeover Projects To Inspire Your Next Home Renovation




When I think about a makeover, I instantly think at my kitchen. I could always need some extra storage room and I usually get tired very quickly of my cabinets. I always end up repainting them in different bright colors which really change up the atmosphere every time. The process of repainting the kitchen cabinets is quite laborious and requires a certain method in order to obtain that perfect end result.  Another change that can make a huge difference is redoing the floors. Wooden floors can be repainted and ceramic ones are very easy to change and refresh the room.

Most of us dread makeovers due to the mess created and the time invested, but the end results always cheer us up. It’s a matter of organization and planning things ahead, finding the right materials required and following every step right. If you find yourself out of creative ideas, today we have prepared a series of Before & After kitchen makeover projects to draw inspiration from, along with a few tips on how to properly repaint those kitchen cabinets.
