Those who live in condo units are familiar with the plain cooking areas and cabinets that go with the space upon turnover. While having an “almost complete” kitchen can make moving in easier, there are instances wherein the materials used aren’t built to last. In this condo unit, the cooking area is slowly deteriorating. Since the countertops were made of inexpensive laminate on a wood base, it started to rot. Adding to the uninspired look are the white range hood and the floral tiles used to spruce up the wall.

To give the kitchen the makeover it deserves, Real Living worked with designers who specialize in kitchen design. Samantha Hontiveros and Leah Rosal of smth/designs decided to replace the countertops, the range hood, and the look of the walls. To further inspire the owners to whip up delicious meals, yellow accents were added to the space—making it homey, brighter, and perfect for cooking sessions.
