Kitchen Reno Before and After Pitcures. How to transform a Tuscan Kitchen into a Bright White Kitchen #Kitchenreno #Kitchenbeforeafter #beforeafterpictures #beforeafterkitchen Becki Owens

 

Interior designer Becki Owens transformed a dark Tuscan-style kitchen into a bright white kitchen without breaking the client’s bank account and today I am sharing how she did it.

According to the designer, she wanted “(…) to create a fresh, bright and inviting gathering space. For that, she decided to give the kitchen an update with some clean new finishes and transform it

from a darker Tuscan feel to a light and larger feeling space.

The first step was to spray paint the existing dark cabinets with white semi-gloss lacquer with no pigment and then slowly bring some classic elements such as white marble countertop and backsplash. Modern lighting and new accessories was just the icing on the cake this kitchen needed to feel updated and elegant.

Take notes on this kitchen’s sources, pin the pictures for future reference, and make sure to take a look at Becki’s others projects here!

To transform the Tuscan kitchen into this bright white kitchen, the designer painted the wall in Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee eggshell sheen and cabinets in white lacquer, with no pigment in it, in semi-gloss sheen.

Kitchen Island

The designer saved money by keeping the existent island and painting it in the same white as the perimeter cabinets. This allowed her to splurge a little and replace the brown granite countertop with Calcutta marble.

If you look at the very 1st picture on this post, where you see the “Before” photo of this kitchen, you will notice that the Travertine floor tiles weren’t changed. Instead of changing the tiles, the designer had the grout cleaned and this made the tiles look much lighter than they used to.

This is a way to save big on a kitchen remodel!

Countertop, Backsplash & Hardware

White kitchen cabinets painted in white lacquer with no pigment in it, semi gloss sheen and Calcutta marble, 3″x12″ subway tiles with white grout for the kitchen backsplash. For the island and counters I picked a 2″,honed Calcutta marble with a clean, mitered edge. Restoration Hardware silver pulls and knobs blended well with the cool tones in the marble. #kitchen #marble #backsplash #countertop #knobs #pulls #hardware Becki Owens

The designer used Calcutta marble, 3″x 12″ subway tiles with white grout for the kitchen backsplash. For the island and counters she chose a 2″, honed Calcutta marble with a clean, mitered edge. Restoration Hardware pulls and knobs looks beautiful with the marble.

  Kitchen Lighting

One of my favorite elements of the kitchen are the glass, globe, pendant lights. I love the mix of the metals in the kitchen from the antique brass on the lights. #Kitchenpendants #Globependants

Kitchen lighting is Arteriors Reeves Antique Brass Large Pendant – $660 each.

The lighting is a small splurge but the antique brass is really an important addition to this space. It brings warmth and balances the flooring hue with the rest of the room.

West Elm sells a similar pendant for a more affordable price –  West Elm Globe Pendant.

Kitchen Nook

Here’s what the designer had to say about the breakfast nook: “My goal with this space was to brighten it up, make the colors pop and show off the charming bench seating. I started by lightening up the area, painting all the surrounding walls. With the walls and all the trim painted white the gray accent color of the bench was highlighted.”
