Rather than buying all-new cabinets, custom doors and drawer fronts were added to the existing boxes to create an updated look while saving tons of cash. Recycled glass countertops, a stylish light fixture and an easy-to-install stainless-steel backsplash add contemporary flair.
High gloss white and orange cabinets brighten the kitchen and new gray laminate countertops with a metal edge added to the retro feel. The backsplash was created with green subway glass. Behind the range and the right of the stove, vintage bottle caps add a vintage flair. All of the appliances are now stainless steel.
Knocking down a wall and adding a large, arched entryway was a dramatic and cost-effective change for this kitchen, transforming it into an open and inviting space for just $710. A new peninsula provides extra seating, while a chandelier, a glass-tile backsplash and wall decals add a bit of glitz and glamour.
