An Australian mother of three has impressed hundreds online after renovating and transforming her outdated kitchen into a stunning new version.

Rhiannon and her family, from Sydney, moved into their home three years ago, but she and her husband began the massive renovation in January.

Before and after sharing photos on Facebook, the kitchen was originally run down and nearly ‘unusable’.

It was transformed into a stylish modern version with black cabinets, a white island sofa and floorboards.

The space was in dire need of an upgrade and the couple opted for a chic black and white style.

During construction, the laundry room was used as a makeshift kitchen for eight weeks, while the original kitchen was torn down.

“We connected the dishwasher to the (cold) wash tap with a Bunnings y-piece,” Rhiannon wrote on Facebook.

“Everything I thought I wouldn’t use, I boxed up. Unfortunately the fridge had to stay outside.’

This was the couple’s first major renovation and they were aware of the cost, layout and services used to bring their vision to life.

For food, Rhiannon usually cooked dishes at her mother’s house and put them in the freezer or used microwave meals.

“We were price conscious so we kept a very similar layout to keep the services in the same place,” Rhiannon wrote online.

‘We reduced the stone to 20 mm and opted for a design from the ‘basics’ range. Devices that were price-matched and purchased by transaction to become cheaper.’
