I love a before and after shot just as much as the rest of us; its wonderful seeing an instant and dramatic transformation right before our eyes.
Its inspirational to look through imagery of a completed project; to see a beautiful space in all its glory with colours and finishes working in harmony. But for the more inquisitive, we often wonder what it looked like before and how much of a transformation the space has undergone to reach its full potential.
We've put together a collection of 'before and after' shots to share with you over the coming weeks to do just that.
To start us off, we're sharing a before an after of the kitchen from our project in the French Riviera.
The kitchen space wasn't expansive so we increased the overall kitchen footprint by creating an island. The kitchen units were light and bright finished in a white matt lacquer with the tall units finished in stainless steel to create a contemporary feel and reflect the light. We selected a beautiful smoked oak finish for the island to compliment the adjacent dining furniture and installed a light taupe stone worktop to bring it all together completing the look.
The end result was a beautiful and practical kitchen! To see more images of the finished project click here
