Stylish Kitchen Updates

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Get the look of a brand-new kitchen for less by working with your existing cabinets, flooring, and layout. Try the ideas in this budget-smart kitchen makeover.

Remodeled kitchen with white counters and dark cabinets.
Kitchen cabinets painted dark Kona.

Transform Your Cabinets

Use Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations (#340517) to give existing cabinets a fresh color and finish without stripping, sanding, or priming in only about a week. Choose from several colors -- we went with dark and handsome Kona. You can also stack crown moulding above upper cabinets to make them look taller and to visually lift the height of the ceiling.

Storage nook above a microwave.

Create New Nooks

Free up counter space by swapping your countertop microwave for an over-the-range model. This compact, powerful unit (#392013) includes a vent fan and has a stainless-steel finish to match the existing appliances. Then turn a slice of cabinet space above the microwave into an attractive display shelf.

Sink and faucet in front of a kitchen window.

Update the Sink, Faucet, and Hardware

Upgrade your cleanup zone with a new sink (#40255, model #440195-2) and faucet (#5365). For a quick change to cabinets, buy new knobs (#243957) and pulls (#244124).


Mini drawers store small supplies in the kitchen.

Stretch Storage

If budget allows, extend a base cabinet for mini drawers. Use countertop jars for added storage and organization.

Undersink organizer for cleaning supplies.

Update Under the Sink

Organize undersink cleaning supplies with a pullout metal basket (#297829) that also keeps paper towels off the counter.

Pullout kitchen recycling bin.

Retrofit for Recycling

Turn a base cabinet into a recycling center by adding a pullout bin (#278250).

Furniture-look cabinet conversion with open shelves.

Add Furniture Style

Make cabinets look more like furniture. We took the doors off a few upper cabinets to make open storage along the refrigerator wall. By extending outer cabinet framing to the countertop and adding a custom-size shelf for bins, we created the look of a built-in china hutch. Then get the look of stone countertops in an affordable, durable form. This laminate (#144739, model #3460-46) mimics real Calacatta marble.

Pull-out storage bins.

Stay Organized

Turn above-counter space into a mini home office. Fabric bins from allen + roth™ (#7974) slide into open shelves, providing attractive, easy-access storage for cards, recipes, and supplies.

mail rack.

Hold Your Mail

Create a handy place for mail. Make a simple rack by mounting a long cabinet pull (#362248) and an angle bracket (#215881) on the end of a base cabinet.

Porcelain mosaic tile.

Style with Tile

Replace a dated backsplash with fun and fashionable new tile. The lively choices include this porcelain mosaic tile (#526292), which extends up the wall to add a pretty pattern behind open shelves.
