If your cabinets are outdated this can make your kitchen feel rundown and not very fresh. Did you know you can switch up your cabinets without having to replace them? White cabinets continue to be the number one-go-to when it comes to cabinets in a kitchen. You can DIY this project or even hire a contractor to do it to ensure top quality work. Either way, it is a MUCH cheaper option than replacing the cabinets with the same results. You can also update the hardware.

2.  Backsplash area above cabinets

If you don’t have much space above your cabinets, it can be very eye-popping to continue the backsplash above the cabinets. This unique touch can make your kitchen feel very luxurious at a low cost. If you are wanting a completely different feel in your kitchen, this update can do the trick!

3.  LED Lights Under Cabinets
