Remodeled KitchenCabinet/Counter Upgrade

By far the most economical choice when it comes to redoing a kitchen, this option involves updating your cabinets and countertop. To do this, you can either completely overhaul what you have by buying entirely new hardware or you can simply repaint the cabinets, both inside and out.

 

The cost of this project will vary depending on just what you do, the size of your kitchen and the materials you use.

This allows for maximum efficiency without taking up a lot of space in your home. It is also an ideal design for smaller, open-concept homes.

Again, you get efficient use of space without using a lot of space. Moreover, by placing the sink on the opposite wall, you get added counter space. This design is great for small kitchens and homes.
