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. Are You Both Worn Out? 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!” Check out the next picture to see just how amazing this low-cost solution can look. Acquaint Yourself With Paint 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. It smooths and knocks down the high spots without dulling/removing as much paint as sandpaper so you don’t have to be quite so careful. Ready For a Change This kitchen could be Anywhere, USA, and might remind you of yours. 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. More Bang For the Buck 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. Not-So-Bright White This kitchen’s beige/whitewashed cabinet color makes the white countertops and walls look dull. That isn’t what anyone wants in a space that should be clean and fresh for cooking and eating. If you’re ready for a change and crave color, check out the next picture to see how adding a new hue to just the cabinets transformed this kitchen. For Those Who Crave Color New molding along the top of the stock cabinets and N-HANCE® wood renewal in blue make the entire kitchen look unique, bright and white, even though the countertops and walls didn’t change. When you’re ready to update your kitchen cabinets, consider all your color options and don’t be afraid to make a bold statement.

Reclaimed wood countertops can be astoundingly beautiful, but because of their very nature — that they’re reclaimed, old, and not just being manufactured at-will — they can be extremely pricey. If the look of wood is what you want, though, the classic butcher block countertop is no slouch. One of the most affordable countertop options out there, the warm surface does require some maintenance and care, but will work hard for you as long as you look out for it.

Soapstone has been used for centuries as a countertop, and its popularity endures, as do the countertops themselves: soapstone fans swear by their durability. These slabs of stability don’t come cheap, though, and while prices vary, you’ll likely be looking at upwards of $80 per square foot. To get the soapstone look without breaking the bank, check out Formica’s Soapstone Sequoia. From their new 180x line of laminates that boast a more realistic natural stone look, you’ll know it’s not soapstone, but it will look great and you’ll have the reliability of laminate, which is nothing to turn down your nose at.

Aside from its sleek, clean appearance, glass countertops have many benefits. Glass can be cut into any shape and texture and can be stained in any color. Even though it’s a pricier option, it’s becoming increasingly more popular because of its modern look. It’s easy to keep clean and its non-porous surface makes it stain-resistant and one of the most hygienic countertop materials available. To make it more durable, choose glass that’s at least 1 inch thick and tempered. Danenberg Design continued the sleek look in this modern Italian kitchen with lacquered kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances.
