Renovating an 80's Style Kitchen into a Bright + Light Dream
April 10, 2017
Turning a space with old oak cabinets and vinyl flooring into a thing of beauty? That takes some serious renovation skills. The result is a marble and subway tile sea of goodness crafted by Kylie Martin with a little pop of peony for good measure. Tour this bright white dream kitchen with even more in the vault.

We recently purchased our first home. I have a love for all things pretty and my husband has a knack for renovating, so this little 80's home was the perfect project for us. Initially our kitchen was enclosed with old oak cabinets and vinyl flooring. The whole kitchen was dark and cramped. Since the space is smaller we opted for an open layout with white cabinets, subway tile and weathered oak flooring. We wanted the kitchen to be inviting and full of light so using a neutral color palette helped emphasize the space. I absolutely adore our new kitchen and am so appreciative of all the work that went into it. Since we did all the work ourselves it took a little bit longer but it was well worth the wait. My tip for anyone looking at renovating is to shop around for everything, we found our cast iron sink online for fifty percent off the store price. It's amazing how much you can save if you are willing to do a little bargain hunting. I hope our little kitchen inspires you as much as it inspires me.
