You can paint the interior of the cabinets with a pop of color. Not too much effort for a nice impact!

Of course, you could paint all the cabinetry in your kitchen. It takes time and some effort, but the result can be jaw-dropping!

If new stainless steel appliances are not in the budget, don’t fret- simply peel stainless steel adhesive sheets and place them on the fronts of your appliances for an instant upgrade!

Sometimes a trip to the home decor store to pick up some bright accessories in your colors of choice is all that’s needed to update your room. Place accessories on the counter, on shelves, or on ledges.

I love this cake stand to hold soap and sponges- makes something so mundane look so glamorous!

Paint the front of one of your cabinets in a chalkboard paint, and then use that space to jot down recipes, shopping lists, etc. So practical and so pretty!
