Can you believe it’s the same kitchen? This amazing transformation featured on One Kings Lane is incredible and it was done in a very affordable way. The space was small and dark, but after the makeover it feels bigger, lighter, more efficient, and definitely gorgeous. The transformation was done without any furniture change or major remodeling: just some coats of paint on the walls and cabinets, the doors on the upper cabinets removed, and some brushed brass hardware added. And to finish, the use of a mirror as backsplash is a creative and inexpensive solution that adds an illusion effect making the space appear bigger and more modern.

Creativity is the key to spending less. The solutions that Mandi Johnson from A Beautiful Mess came up with to remodel her kitchen are beyond creative; they’re so clever that it’s impossible to not be impressed. Instead of replacing the cabinets, she decided to re-hang half of them higher, paint them white, and add open shelving below them and on either side. The walls were painted white, the bottom cabinets black, and a plank backsplash and a budget-friendly butcher block countertop were added. Add a few hardware changes and voilá: an affordable kitchen transformation that looks incredible!

Amazing transformations can happen in small kitchens too. The white cabinets and countertops had a bland look that was screaming for a makeover. To recycle the cabinets and not spend money on new ones, the existing ones were painted with a glossy black color. The custom doors and new hardware that were added make the set look brand new. The recycled glass countertops, cheaper than other high-end options, add a punch of style. The stylish light fixture and the easy-to-install stainless-steel backsplash finish the transformation in the best way possible.

You won’t believe this amazing transformation only cost $500. The whole kitchen got a powerful makeover that impresses everybody! The walls and cabinets were painted bright white, the header was reworked, a modern light fixture added, the doors on one cabinet were removed and the interior was painted black to make the dishes pop. The dated linoleum floor was stripped to reveal the original hardwood floors underneath, and even the adjoining dining room got a makeover.
