It’s no secret that the kitchen is the busiest area at home. Not only do we prepare meals in the space, we also grab quick bites in the area when we’re in a rush. Given these reasons, it’s important to have a kitchen that’s practical and inviting. To motivate you to always keep this part of the home in tip-top shape, we’ve revisited one of Good Housekeepings inspiring makeovers.

In 2011, the team decided to transform a cramped cooking area into a charming kitchen. The woman of the house, Lilia, uses the space to prep meals for her family. Unfortunately, it is not equipped to handle such tasks. “The kitchen was virtually non-existent being only a counter, [with] one outlet serving all their appliances. Their dining table practically was the kitchen counter while they ate in the living room,” shares architect Mia Quimpo, who was tasked to improve the space. In just four weeks, Mia was able to give the kitchen an overhaul. Take note of the changes done below and see how you can apply each in your own cooking nook:
