- Paint Them, Don’t Replace them
A makeover doesn’t necessarily mean replacing those depressed cabinets. You can clean them up and brush on some new paint—and within a weekend take that kitchen from boring to sunny.
Usually cabinets get that dark color due to the amount of dust they collected, also the paint gets old, sucking up all the light out of the room, but as I said a brighter makeover doesn’t necessarily mean replacing those gloomy boxes as long as the frames and doors are structurally sound, you can just clean them real good and brush some new paint, my recommendation a bright color, to light up your new space.
- Have in Mind what you want
Some people believe they need to replace the whole kitchen including the sink, for this area to have a better more modern look.
Nowadays the new wave of renters and buyers, millennials, are looking for that vintage type of look, so you might want to keep some of the original retro details of your kitchen like the stainless-steel sink and metal handles. Changing or just painting some of the surface of your kitchen will help you save big money.
- Get Dirty and DIY
You don’t need to call “The Guy” for every situation that you might have at home, there are some things that you can go to the mattress and “Do It Yourself” you will be saving money and you’ll make sure the finish is exactly what you are looking for.
Nowadays you find how to fix everything in the internet.

Have you ever seen in movies how they hang pots from the ceiling? Well that has a reason, space.
Hang a pot rack with fresh new pots, pans and a hanging wine bottle holder. With the rolling island, your kitchen will catch every buyer’s eye. You can take some of these things with you to your new home too in case you’ll miss them.
- Go Vertical
Vertical shelving will maximize your space, you can use them to hold some containers which you can fill with spices, grains or even paper towels, also since we are talking about being vertical; how about a double magnetic knife holder?
