These DIY kitchens were transformed by smart shopping, salvaged materials, and a little elbow grease.
Ready-to-assemble cabinets, including a closet repurposed as a pantry, saved thousands of dollars in this kitchen renovation. In-cabinet puck lights dress up frosted-glass doors, a trick that really brightens the room and maximizes lighting flexibility. Walls, windows, and plumbing lines stayed in their pre-renovation places which kept the budget on track.

A stainless-steel smooth-top range surrounded by butcher-block countertop creates a spot for serving buffet-style dinners.
Black paint came to the rescue in this kitchen by giving the old cabinets a totally different look without breaking the budget. Glass pendants over the sink provide a playful dash of color in the high contrast kitchen.
