Quick Kitchen Upgrades

Some Quick Saving Tips...

1. Instead of replacing your cabinets, reface them by changing doors and hardware.

2. Buy mid-priced appliances except be careful when buying a dishwasher. You may want to spend a little more on this.

3. New colors cost far less than new architecture.

4. Add light with a sky light for a larger apprearance. Look into sunpipes, http://www.sunpipes.com/

5. Use open shelves and glass cabinets.

6. Edge the new countertops with cherry, maple or oak, to give a high-end look.

7. Ceramic or Vinyl floors are the most durable choices.

8. Simplify clean-up-- add backsplashes. Stainless steel is durable, good looking and inexpensive.

9. Get the right ceiling fixture to set it off.

10. Consider a ceiling fan-- it can make the room warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
