    Editor, Kitchen and Bath Ideas

    TAKE A PHOTO!Thats right. Snap a picture now, while your kitchen or bath still

    looks like a dark, dated, depressing rabbit hole. Believe me, weve

    seen worse. And even when we think weve seen The Worst, another

    Before photo comes along that makes us gasp (and then rejoice in the

    fact that this is, indeed, a Before, which means a beautiful After will

    follow!). We relish the opportunity to go back in time and see just

    where these homeowners began their remodeling journey, because itsa placeand spaceto which most of us can relate. The pain points

    tend to be universal: too little square footage, too little style, too little

    function. But the solutions are remarkably diverse.

    Take Tina and Keith Roddas fresh, breezy kitchen in Cape

    Elizabeth, Maine (page 116). Its efficient layout and stylish materials

    belie its origins as a closed-off room that did little to welcome the

    Roddas young family. Now its their favorite hangout, thanks to

    thoughtful planning and patience. (They lived with their existing

    space for a year to determine just what changes they wanted to make.)

    Dana and Jeremy Sacks say they inherited 90 years of bad taste

    when they bought their foursquare house in Portland, Oregonand

    the ill-conceived kitchen was among the worst offenders. But a gut

    remodel and addition completely transformed the way the space looksand functions (page 74).

    And then theres the 2012 DC Design House bath remodel, a

    project spearheaded by designer Allie Mann. Out went the cotton-

    candy pink decor and egregious use of floral wallpaper, and in came

    a crisp green-and-white palette, clean-lined fixtures, and abundant

    cottage charm (page 130). Its one of my all-time favorite before-and-

    afters. And it proves, like all the featured makeovers in this issue, that

    even the worst Before can have a happily ever After.
