-We chose this 1930s kitchen to show you how easy it is to totally transform the look of your kitchen for only $500. When we started, this kitchen looked a little bit like a 1950s dinner. We kept wet work and replaced [unk]. By making only surface changes and keeping the layout, we were able to stretch the budget. Painting the walls give the space a neutral palette. For only $30, it was a simple way to take the room from retro to modern. Sleek laminate countertops for Ikea replaced the old wobbly countertops. This edge looks like more expensive solid surface, which gives a high-end look for less; only $98. The sink was original to the house, so we replaced it with a stunning stainless steel version Wilsonart for $120. Even though the faucet had been replaced by the previous homeowner, we chose a modern faucet from faucetdirect.com to go with the new look. We shopped around online and found it for $50. This backsplash really upgraded the feel of the space. Glass tiles sometimes can be pricey, but this tile from [unk] costs only $160. The cabinets were already painted black, which worked with the new look. To add some personality to the inside of the cabinet, we covered foam core with wrapping paper from the Paper Source for only $16. Simple window treatments were made by applicating leftover fabric from the dining window treatments a premade Roman shape. Black grosgrain ribbon finishes the look. This kitchen got a high-end look for less than $500, 474 to be exact. I'm Rachel Halgo with Kitchen Makeovers Magazine. We help you with big dream, but real budget.
