In this kitchen remodel I am not sure which one I like better, the before or after. Kitchen remodels before and after can sometimes be clear about which one was the preferable setup, but sometimes it is hard to tell. If you are designing your kitchen from an older design, then you may want to take a picture and look at some similar kitchen styles before and after. I have to say, as far as kitchen remodels before and after go I think I like the before a .little more. In kitchen designs I tend to favor more earthy, homey colors and textures, so for me the before is more preferable.
