BEFORE & AFTER: TURQUOISE TAKES OVER IN A SMALL KITCHEN MAKEOVER!

Love this tiny kitchen makeover. So cute. Makes you realize that you don't need much space to make things work in a home!

The polka dot roman shade hanging over the nice window, the open shelving and the bright blue paint all work so well together!

Before, the kitchen was outdated, had no counter space and there was little room to move about. (above)

After, the open shelving allows for more storage space and for color coordinated kitchen accessories to lend to the overall decor. (above and below)

  1. All these turquoise kitchens may appear very dated very quickly. I would opt for a touch of turquoise in the fabrics and accessories and stick with a wood or white painted cabinet for longevity. But it is cute.

  3. It's really adorable! I would have left the radiator uncovered and painted it white...

  5. Very nice. LOVE the turquoise and white. The open shelving is adorable too. =) I'm afraid I'm way too messy and scattered to have open shelving. I do love it though.

  9. The turquoise is a little bright for me but what an improvement. It is amazing how much adding just a few feet of counter space and some shelving can improve the functionality of a kitchen. Adding just 4 feet of counter space in my kitchen made it so much easier to cook in.
