There are few things we love more than a good kitchen transformation. But anyone who has partaken in one knows that it takes a lot of time and a lot of decision making to renovate arguably the most important room in the house. When HuffPost Home reader Kay Fiset sent us her renovation, we were completely in awe of the before and after photos that we couldn't help but share.
Fiset has lived in her Syracuse, New York home for over 20 years, and one day she decided to ditch the "brownness and darkness" and make her space an airy and modern room. She hired designer Cindy Cifaratta and contractor George Oley to help with the process. Practically everything was replaced including the cabinets and appliances. The ceiling was even raised because it felt "heavy" over Fiset. She also turned to blogger/color expert Maria Killam, who helped her pick Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace to really brighten up the kitchen.
The end results are pretty astonishing. We particularly love the blue stove which adds just the right amount of color to the area. Scroll through the photos below to see the before and after shots, and be head over to Maria Killam's blog to learn more.
