First step, de-clutter!

Second, the plan was to keep the cabinets to save money. So I replaced the old white hardware, with silver knobs to give them an updated look.

New floor was installed. This is a tile that looks like ceramic but is less expensive.

New faux tile Kitchen flooring

New light fixture; new paint color (I faux painted the walls and below island); new granite counter tops; new blinds; new appliances; new breakfast area furniture.

As you can see you can make a dramatic difference without spending a lot of money!
