Kitchen Remodeling on a Budget

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Think there's no such thing as a budget kitchen makeover? We'll show you how to transform a tired, bleak kitchen with low-cost, big-impact projects.

Kitchen before

From Tired and Bleak ...This frazzled, outdated kitchen was stuck in the mid 1970s with tired counter tops, dull cabinets and a not-so-smart, carpeted floor.

...to Inspired and Chic. Laminate flooring, smart DIY countertop coating, painted cabinets, hardworking lighting, fresh window treatments, new appliances and storage projects come together to revive this once bleak space. And with a price tag of $2,642 (including a new refrigerator and stove) you won't be limited to mac-and-cheese dinners.

New Cabinet Hardware

Love Handles
New brushed nickel knobs (#294606) and hardware (#314979) give bland kitchens a lot of bang for a buck.

New Laminate Flooring

Wood's Look Without the Worry
This isn't your mother's laminate flooring. Wider planks and graphic grain texture give this SwiftLock Plus (#295647) flooring the look of authentic wood.
