Before And After – The Remodel Of A Small And Dated Galley Kitchen

The contemporary remodel of a small and dated kitchen.

Kitchen design and cabinet company Bakes & Kropp, in collaboration with Interior Designer Cathy Buik, has transformed a small and dated kitchen in a home in New York City.

Here’s a glimpse of what the kitchen looked like BEFORE the remodel. The kitchen included wood cabinets, a single pendant light, rounded corner shelving, unused wall space, and dark countertops.

The new kitchen is a dramatic transformation from the dark kitchen, even though it occupies the same space in the home. Under-cabinet lighting and the new white upper cabinets and countertops, help to keep the small kitchen bright and make it feel more open.

The wood cabinets were replaced with white upper cabinets and black lower cabinets, while the floor is now a nice warm wood. Polished nickel inlay accents create the look of drawers throughout, even on cabinet doors.

At the end of the kitchen, there’s a wall of cabinetry that includes additional counter space, while a tile backsplash in a decorative pattern creates a focal point.

The previous stainless steel fridge was removed and replaced with an integrated fridge, whose front matches the surrounding cabinetry.
