1. Remove a few cabinet doors

To give your kitchen a fresh look, try removing some of your cabinet doors. Doing so will create an open kitchen storage that is easy and convenient to use, as well as easy on the eyes.

3. Add a backsplash

A backsplash is a vertical extension to a counter, typically in a kitchen, which protects the wall from unintended splashes of water. At present, a kitchen backsplash is no longer just a wall that protects from splatters. It has become the focal point of today's kitchens with its wide array of eye-catching materials like glass, wood, metals and stone. Adding a backsplash is easy and it won’t break the bank.


4. Opt for affordable kitchen countertops

Countertops are horizontal work surface in kitchens or other food preparation areas.

If you want to update your kitchen on a budget, ceramic tiles is a great option for a countertop. It comes in many colors and styles and is budget friendly. Another cost effective option is laminate. It is easy to install and costs about the same as tile. You may also consider solid wood countertops that can be cut, sanded, and treated. They come in a variety of wood types and provide a warmth some other materials simply can't.
