FIve tips & photos for upgrading your kitchen on a budget.

 Ready to update your kitchen but not sure where to start? Here are some ideas, which vary from somewhat expensive to very reasonable, when budget is key. 

1) Add a splash of color through bar stools
painting the bar stools was a great way to add color
Recovering the seats in yellow
cheered up the look of these bar stools

2) Insert glass into upper cabinet doors. Then, add lights inside.  

Notice the glass doors - upper left corners


3) Update the accessories - sometimes that's all that is needed for a huge impact.
Notice below how we changed the room by reducing the number of items on display!

4) Replace the hardware. Vary the sizes and shapes, add handles as well as knobs.

5) Add crown molding to the top cabinets

Have fun with it! Don't assume you have to do a major remodel in order to create major impact. These before and after photos are just a tip of the iceberg of the various ways you can update your kitchen on a budget.
