Home Design Rooms Kitchens. From small changes like new hardware and painted islands to renewed cabinets, create a kitchen you love no matter your budget. Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email. Don't Desert Your Island If you love your kitchen cabinets, but want to add some interest to the space for very little money and time, consider changing the color of your island. This has been a popular design element for years and is showing no signs of changing anytime soon. Paint it, stain it a darker color or clad it in beadboard.
You could even put corbels under the breakfast bar for added dimension and inexpensive customization. These kitchen cabinets are hopefully in worse shape than yours, but they're not that uncommon. If you like the style of your existing cabinets, they're still functioning well or new ones aren't in the budget right now, paint is your friend here.
Choose a color that complements the other elements in the room and get ready to go from "ow" to "wow! A fresh kitchen is just a few days' elbow grease away. Prep work and light, even coats are the keys to a successful paint job. Take the time to sand the surfaces until smooth, caulk as needed and try using pieces of a brown paper bag to "sand" between coats.
This kitchen could be Anywhere, USA, and might remind you of yours. If you've been with your kitchen a long time, chances are, you've been through a lot together—experimenting with meals both masterpieces and disasters , crafting last-minute school projects, and gossiping at parties galore—and things might be feeling a bit, well, stale.
While you still love your kitchen, you're not currently in love with it. If you find yourself watching more and more HGTV, googling terms like "open floorplan" and "apron-front sinks," and have nightly dreams wherein you discuss the ins and outs of kitchen renovation while jogging with Chip Gaines , it's time to face facts: Your kitchen has lost its spark.
Maybe you're open to a variety of kitchen upgrade ideas. Perhaps you're thinking about whiting out the entire kitchen space. Or you're tempted to kick things into action by knocking down all the kitchen walls. But before you break out the sledgehammer, take a breath. You might just be able to get the romance back without a full-blown kitchen remodel. You might be surprised to find how much of a transformation you can make with simple, won't-break-the-bank kitchen solutions like new hardware, a coat or two of paint, new bar stools, or even a new way to display an old collection.
When you're done, you can celebrate the return of the kitchen romance with the ultimate sign of love— a vanilla cake with brown-butter glaze. While the kitchen isn't an obvious room to display an art collection, you should definitely take advantage of all that prime wall real estate.
Carve out a "view" with vintage landscapes and seascapes, make a more-the-merrier atmosphere with antique portraits, or create the ultimate homage to the little ones for whom all chicken fingers are made with silhouettes. While your appliance might last for years and years, tastes change. But it seems impractical to get rid of a refrigerator just because you've grown tired of its white finish.
Take a note from homeowner Lauren Crouch and cover your appliance with wallpaper and seal with polyurethane for extra water resistance. Any kitchen can go from formal to farmhouse with a few key elements. Try adding chicken wire to upper cabinets for a rustic touch that also allows collections to shine.

A plain old oven hood can become a dramatic focal point in a kitchen with a simple addition—in this case a toleware tray tranforms the space. For a lot of extra bang for your buck, you can also quickly add heaps of charm to a kitchen with the addition of buffalo-checked window treatments. Whether you swap in a bunch of monochromatic barn lights or go with a mix of vintage here, an old lantern and new like these pendant lights , changing out the fixtures will have you—and everyone else—seeing your kitchen in a new light.
Upper cabinets can make a room feel a little claustrophobic, but the extra storage space is great—especially for collectors. To freshen up a kitchen, replace solid cabinet doors with glass-paned fronts, and everyone wins. You get all the storage, and your friends get to see all the cool stuff you have. While no one can deny that kitchen islands are incredibly practical—it's a workspace, a storage area, a place to enjoy meals, and often the most popular place to stand around during a party—it doesn't have to look so practical.
Swap in an antique piece for a super fast, super dramatic room transformation. New cabinets are expensive—way more than a few gallons of paint. Green is really having a moment, and what better way to freshen up sad old cabinets than with an outdoorsy hue like Jasper by Sherwin-Williams.
Sure, you can warm up a white kitchen with butcher block countertops and poplar floors. But for a much less expensive solution, layer in baskets, hats, and market bags. Also consider hanging a piece of fabric to add softness and hide that essential-but-enormous coffee maker. What could be a simpler kitchen update than replacing cabinet hardware—especially when you already have the one-of-a-kind solution on hand!
Homeowner Jeanette Fristoe decided to stop hiding pieces of her antique silverware in drawers and used them on drawers instead. Give instant visual interest to your kitchen by mixing and matching multiple materials and textures.

The island is made of repurposed cypress wood. To indulge the splurge on marble countertops, these homeowners saved elsewhere by keeping the original room layout and plumbing as is. Off-the-shelf cabinets and inexpensive tile also helped cut costs. Free up cabinet space, and create a clever spot for collectibles, with above-window shelving. This kitchen gets additional warmth from cherry counters, an antique island, gingham-check wallpaper, and an apron sink. Honed black granite countertops and black-painted oak cabinets offer a dramatic counterpoint to this kitchen's white plank walls.
Plumbing-pipe fittings make for unexpected wall art. Cabinets from the s get an easy update with the addition of beadboard doors plus new, modern knobs and pulls. Instead of claustrophobia-inducing wall-to-wall cabinetry, this kitchen has two open upper storage units, including this plate rack. The lower cabinets, with solid doors, offer hidden storage. New appliances make a huge difference.
This kitchen is home to some big splurges: a large industrial stove, and marble and steel countertops. A custom island, topped with sheet metal, echoes this home's barnwood beams. Why stop at the usual overheads? Additional sconces make any countertop an enlightened spot for prep work. Unify everything with white paint. Ditch laminate countertops for affordable oak. A silver-plated tray strikes a luxe note and serves as a spot for holding recipes: Just add magnets!
Antique milk-glass pendant lamps illuminate the kitchen, which sports custom cabinetry. Give a kitchen living-room elegance with a wall of framed—even lighted! Create a sense of space with open wall shelves. In this kitchen, simple white planks and custom brackets are set against a playful chalkboard-painted wall. Windsor stools and a red-patterned rug may be more expected in the living room but add a fun surprise in the kitchen.
Boat hardware takes a supporting role as kitchen cabinet latches. The color palette in this kitchen, and on the penny-tile backsplash, was inspired by a cache of old blue barn wood. Classic country details—an apron-front sink, beadboard cabinets, and a barn-wood island—provide a warm contrast to stainless steel appliances.
Butcher-block counters and original hand-carved scrollwork surrounding the window leave a lasting impression.
Move for Hunger, a nonprofit organization, picks up all of your pantry goods and donates them to food banks. Take Murphy Oil Soap and hot water and use it to scrub the outside and inside of your cabinets. The clean should remove all dust and residue that has built up over the years. McCaslin also recommends a small brush a toothbrush will do! Take off the stove top grates and clean in between, making sure to clear any burnt on stains or grease splatter.
You should also clean your kitchen because it might be the only fix you need if the cabinets, appliances, and counters are in good condition. Parziale says that you should remove any outdated wallpaper and paint walls a warm white to give the space a clean look and make the room feel larger. Paint is an affordable and easy fix that brightens up the entire space. The red paint makes that kitchen look dated and dark despite the natural light coming in. The warm white of the updated space is clean and bright.
As with cleaning the kitchen from top to bottom, this step makes such a difference that it could be, besides a good scrub, the only update you need. Dim yellow light will illuminate the grease stains on the wall behind your stove. Thick, velvet curtains that hang in front of the window above your sink will darken the room and depress the mood.
Compare that against the bright, light kitchens on HGTV these days. Light makes a room inviting, highlights details, brings warmth and creates a good energy that makes a space feel like home. Look at the kitchen above, for example. The wall color is too dark, but otherwise the cabinets are a fresh white, the detail on the kitchen island is intricate and unique.
No matter how lovely this kitchen is, no buyer wants to walk into a kitchen this beautiful but this dark. Upgrading the lighting can require an electrician to install new pendants, but the cash is worth it to make those subway tiles shine. Not sure what lights to add? Here are the main points to keep in mind as you head out to the nearest Home Depot:. The wood or formica of the past can be sanded and painted white for clean cabinets that create a neutral backdrop and contribute to the light of the space.
As Lisa Drapkin points out, white cabinets are what buyers expect to see in an upscale, modern kitchen. Drapkin agrees that houses with dark cabinets and gross tile counters sell for less than houses with beautiful, updated kitchens. Your cabinets should be in top shape after this thorough polish and clean. Benjamin Moore makes a primer and several levels of gloss for cabinet re-vamps. We recommend white in the satin finish. The satin gives the white a clean, polished look without being as shiny as your face after a workout class.
Satin is a durable finish that stands up to consistent sponge cleans after the inevitable jar of marinara explodes. White cabinets create the illusion of a light space and white also, as Karen Parziale pointed out above, makes the room look larger. One blogger took her dated wood cabinets and gave them a white facelift. Look how big of a difference the white cabinets make in her kitchen—the entire space looks bright, clean, and welcoming.
Clean countertops suggest a clean, fresh house. Dirty tile with gray grout makes buyers see your property as an old fixer-upper that needs work. One option is to have a handyman put an epoxy paint to create a seal over old tile counters. If you have an extra thousand in the budget, you could go for granite counters instead. Granite is affordable and looks clean and modern. If you do have white cabinets, McCaslin suggests gray for the counters. An updated faucet for the sink is a must. You could even put corbels under the breakfast bar for added dimension and inexpensive customization.

Let's say you have a bigger budget and it's time for some changes, but new cabinets aren't one of them. Repurposing them by changing their color and focusing on other areas that'll give you a big bang for your buck is a smart way to go.
Look to the following picture for inspiration. This kitchen's renewed darker cabinets, new backsplash and stainless steel appliances all combine to make it into a welcoming space with minimal hassle and mess. Keeping the same layout, cabinets and flooring made it possible to put the dollars into the higher-end appliances people expect these days and to add texture with the tile backsplash — all ideas you can consider if your kitchen's not to your taste.
That isn't what anyone wants in a space that should be clean and fresh for cooking and eating.
