Welcome to our budget friendly kitchen makeover! We've been in our small Brooklyn co-op for 5 years now and have always disliked how dark and dated our tiny galley kitchen was, so we finally decided to give it an update.
Watch our kitchen remodel step by step highlights video - a tour in the "before" kitchen, replacing our kitchen appliances (from mismatched black to new smudgeproof stainless steel whirlpool appliances), replacing our kitchen counters (from dark baltic brown granite to msi arctic white quartz countertops), adding new white hexagon backsplash, and a tour of the "after" kitchen. I think it really brightened it up and gave it a much cleaner, fresher, and a bit funkier vibe, what do you think!? I mean, it'll never be a spacious pinterest perfect dream kitchen, but this is life in a Brooklyn co-op!

WHAT WE USED:
Our budget friendly kitchen remodel features the following products (affiliate links) - our whole project, parts and outsourced labor, was just under $5K!
So, what do you think? We did a gut renovation of our bathroom (also done by E&M Shore Construction) when we purchased our co-op 5 years ago. You can see that post here!

As I compared the photos of before and after, well the results are good but for me the before photos, for me they're better.

I love the look of the honeycomb tiles, so much. I have been looking for a backsplash idea and I think this would be a great one. Everything looks so good, and so clean. You did a great job.

I love how your kitchen turned out! It’s so bright and welcoming! I never would have guessed that your kitchen remodel was done on a budget. I’ve been wanting to renovate our kitchen, but have been worried about it being outside what we can spend, but I will definitely be taking a look at all the links you posted and trying to do something similar. Thanks for sharing!

There's no conversation more important to an eco-friendly kitchen remodel than energy efficiency. One of the best places to improve your home's energy efficiency is in your windows and doors.
