Clever updates and a keep versus replace mentality transformed this basic kitchen into something stylish on a budget. Laminate counter tops, vinyl flooring and cabinets where in good shape and remained. The updates were selected to work with these existing elements. Fresh paint and hardware refresh the old cabinets. The creamy white hue makes the space feel more open. Using tile adhesive instead of mortar made installing the DIY backsplash easy. The mocha color coordinates with the existing tile and flooring which makes the old look right at home. A basic wide range of microwave, we will replace with stainless models and match the refrigerator. An adhesive film affordably updated the dishwasher to coordinate with other appliances. The peel and stick material comes in rolls and is easily cut to size. Changing out the faucet to match the other stainless accents brought unity to the space. In the dining nook, fresh but affordable furniture spruced up with paint creates a cozy space for eating. Tops of citrusy green add personality keeping existing elements and making simple updates that work with your current kitchen will give your kitchen a unique and stylish look on a dime.
