7 Dreamy Kitchen Before and Afters

It’s easy to brush off design and styling as trivial, an unnecessary expense of time and money.  After all, laminate countertops from the eighties function much in the same way as our favorite quartz ones.  But I beg to differ.  Whether it’s a simple coat of paint, an updated backsplash, or a major overhaul like these projects, being surrounded in your daily life by colors, textures, and objects that bring a smile to your face has an actual physical effect on us.  Science has shown that homes with more natural light help combat depression and sleep disorders.  Families tend to linger in rooms where everyone can sit comfortably.  Rooms that are found to be aesthetically pleasing to the occupant can reduce stress.  The list goes on!  Thinking of making an update this summer?  Check out these seven dreamy kitchen before and afters before picking up the sledge hammer…
