Before and After: From Slapdash Kitchen to a Blue-Grey Beauty

Here’s a kitchen that makes me think, “Sure! Great! I’ve paid many dollars every month for the privilege of cooking in much worse and much, much smaller spaces!” But all is not what it seems, so click through for the total transformation and the truth about what the kitchen was like before the makeover.

This Backsplash Trend is A Budget Lover’s Best Friend

There is so much beautiful tile in the world. But for those of us on a budget, so much of it just isn’t within reach: most is just way too expensive to use on a whole wall, a floor, or even an entire backsplash. Perhaps this is why we’re noticing more micro backsplashes in the kitchen and bathroom lately. They are a little tiny opportunity to do something fun in a very practical way. And, for each one, a little bit of tile goes a very long way.

Before and After: From Fast Food Floors to Old World Charm

The designer of this renovation described the kitchen before as, “dark, oddly angled and with what looks like fast food restaurant tile on the floor.” The client wanted to brighten and update the kitchen while making sure that it fit in perfectly with the rest of the 100-year-old home. The results are fresh and airy yet utterly classic, and the brand-new kitchen has achieved the dream: it looks like it’s always been there.

We Tried Updating An Old Appliance With Liquid Stainless Steel — Apartment Therapy Test Lab

Can this outdated, off-white relic of a stove be transformed into a sleek stainless steel beauty? When I learned about a product designed to replicate the look of stainless steel appliances, I was itching to see if it worked — it just seemed a little too good to be true. Could this paint make appliances blend in a little bit more, or maybe look a little less decrepit? Less almond at least?

Before & After: A Perfectly Nice Kitchen Gets Unbelievably Better

As kitchens go, this one isn’t too shabby. There are really nice white countertops, classic subway tile on the backsplash, and basic wood cabinets that look perfectly sound and in good condition. There’s no horribly dated light fixtures, no crappy peeling wallpaper, or any odd woodwork that needs to be ripped out. Even the walls are white and ready to go. Not much you can do to improve this space, right? So very, very wrong.

We’re Transfixed by this Kitchen Sink Drain that Makes Cleaning Easier

It’s a sign of my age that I get crazy excited about the little things at home. Sure, the frivolous things of my youth still hold some sway, but all I really want is a good vacuum that will suck up rogue animal fur, and a sink that cleans itself. I can probably manage the vacuum, but a self-cleaning sink is most likely not in the cards. That’s ok though, because this one from Elkay is the next best thing.

Kitchens Without Upper Cabinets: Should You Go Without?

In recent years a lot of people have chosen to incorporate open shelving into their kitchens — but lately, we’ve seen a trend that’s even more dramatic: kitchens with no upper cabinets at all. There are some undeniable advantages to this: the airy feel, lots of room for windows — and also some undeniable disadvantages: the loss of storage, the prospect of bending down to get everything you need. Is this something you would consider?

Before & After: A 40-Year-Old Kitchen Gets a Dramatic Update

Finding the perfect apartment in New York, for a reasonable price, is no easy task. When soon-to-be parents Fabio and Melina decided to upgrade from their one-bedroom rental, finding an acceptable two-bedroom place within their budget turned out to be quite a challenge.

But this couple saw potential.
