1.  Refurbish your existing kitchen cabinets.  How?  If your cabinets are in good shape and not too dated, sand, repaint and seal them.  Two of my favorite colors to repaint kitchen cabinets when working with design clients is to repaint dated cabinets in an orange oake color a fresh white or a beautiful dramatic black.  Another look I love is give a vintage cottage look to cabinets by sanding, repainting, and sanding them again for a distressed feel.


But if your cabinet design is really dated, try having them refaced with new doors and fronts, or remove your door fronts and add glass inserts, replace your dated moldings wiht new wood moldings and add crown molding above to completely transform them along with new door hardware.

2. Replace your dated or worn appliances with more updated used ones you can find for less on the internet, replace dishwasher fronts or just prime and repaint appliances with appliance paint yourself.


3. Refurbish your existing floors with stone tile found on clearance and install yourself.  Or try stenciling over dated wood floors to disguise the worn areas and give them some personality.  Of course if you have linoleum, you can replace your flooring with a new pattern that looks like wood or stone for almost nothing.
