Before & After: Small Kitchen Renovation

Designer Anastasia Faiella has been hard at work lately with various projects, and luckily she continues to share the fruits of her labor with us. This recent kitchen renovation she sent in includes a great solution for small spaces...

The kitchen island has a hinged top, which when open instantly adds extra space for prepping. And since it is on casters, you can turn it around to create a bar top for eating - just pull up a stool or two. We also like the diagonally-cut tiled back splash which brings a bit of liveliness to the room. You can see more of Anastasia's work at her website.

Photos 1, 3 and 5 show the kitchen before renovation; 2,4,6,7 and 8 are all of the completed project.
