Before and After: A Kitchen Remodel with Martha Stewart Living
Before and After: A Martha Stewart Living Kitchen Remodel
Recently, MSLO and The Home Depot teamed up with blogger Kristin Jackson, of The Hunted Interior, to update her kitchen. Kristin documented the experience from design to install on her blog, and now it's time for the big reveal! Click through the slides to see her kitchen and to learn how to get the look for yourself.
Kristin has a smaller kitchen. She had limited countertop space, and chalkboard walls. She wanted a lighter, more open kitchen that maximized the small space. After spending time thinking about her remodel, she met with the design team at The Home Depot with the following information:
- The dimensions of her space
- The dimensions of her existing appliances
- Her list of needs and wants
- A few photos of the existing space
Lighter, Whiter Kitchen
Kristin chose to go with the Wellston cabinets in Picket Fence from the Martha Stewart Living line, exclusively at The Home Depot. They feature a simple and sophisticated recessed panel door. The PureStyle™ finish on the cabinets is a durable laminate wrap that is easier to care for and longer lasting than a standard painted cabinet door.(For more on Martha Stewart Living kitchens, visit The Home Depot.)
It's All in the Detail
To increase her countertop space without adding any actual square footage to the kitchen, Kristin created an L-shaped countertop. She chose the Martha Stewart Living Quartz countertop in Snowcap to continue the lighter feel of her kitchen. She also used the countertop as a backsplash, and created a custom-edge detail to visually connect the countertop and the cabinets.(For more on Martha Stewart Living countertops, visit The Home Depot.)
The rest of the backsplash is white tiling that was cleverly placed into a herringbone pattern. Kristin says 350 tiles were used, with 191 cuts made!

Organized and Open
The open shelving and decorative corbel shelf supports Kristin chose have a dual function: It is a stylish alternative to regular cabinets and shelving, and it offers easy access to ... anything and everything. No more rummaging through cluttered cabinetry!(For more on Martha Stewart Living kitchens, visit The Home Depot.)
The brass hardware Kristin chose, like these Martha Stewart Living Goblet knobs in Bedford Brass, creates a nice pop of color against her white and neutral color palette.(For more on Martha Stewart Living kitchen hardware, visit The Home Depot.)
Drawer organizers are essential for taming your utensils.(For more on Martha Stewart Living kitchens, visit The Home Depot.)
This Martha Stewart Living Message Center cabinet is almost like a hidden door! It's the perfect place to hold Kristin's keys or other odds and ends.(For more on Martha Stewart Living kitchens, visit The Home Depot.)
Perfect Pantry Space
Kristin added a lazy Susan to her cabinetry, which will help her get the most out of her space. It will also help provide her with easier access to common pantry items.(For more on Martha Stewart Living kitchens, visit The Home Depot.)
Table with a View
Finally, her new banquet seating area is a smarter use of space than a formal dining area.
