Wednesday's Walk-through

Let's welcome Amanda from Homely One blog to our Wednesday's Walk-through.

Her kitchen makeover is impressive!

This is what Amanda says:

"Updating our kitchen is one of the best decisions we have made to our house since we bought it in 2005 and is definitely the renovation project which has had the most significant impact on the look of our interior.

Previously, our kitchen was an unattractive combination of face bricks, mission brown door frames and skirtings, dated light fittings, a chunky cream bench and dark brown laminate cabinets.

In our new kitchen, we chose to keep the existing layout and simply updated each component. Our white Ikea cabinets have made the area much brighter and our new grey benchtop is much more streamlined. With white door frames and rendered walls and well as our new floorboards, the kitchen has a much fresher look.

Now I'd like to add some decor to this space - a wall shelf above our toaster/kettle to display some canisters and pretty teacups, a statement piece above the oven (at the moment I'm leaning towards a clock) and a display above the fridge. I'll get there eventually!!"

Wow. That is definitely mission un-brown. The kitchen looks fantastic - lighter and brighter, which is a very good thing.

Well done on a wonderful transformation...it must be so nice being in that kitchen compared to the "before". Great use of the original plan.....goes to show something are always functional...
I hope face brick never comes back into style.

What a great kitchen makeover. Covering those bricks was the best thing Amanda could have done to make the space seem less cluttered and more open. Thanks for posting about her kitchen. Michelle

Looks great. as for the statement piece above the oven, I would leave it as it will draw attention to the fact that none of your openings on that wall are level - they are all different heights.
