Painting cabinets requires minimal investment, but the result can completely change the look of your kitchen.

1. Paint Old Cabinets

If you want to instantly change the look of your kitchen on a budget, consider painting your cabinets.

Cabinets often take up the most visual space in a kitchen, so refreshing them can do wonders! Consider the look of your other features, like the appliances and backsplash, along with your personal style, when picking a color.

Want a timeless look? You can’t go wrong with white or black.

2. Hang Open Shelves

A lack of storage can be a real killer in the kitchen. Consider hanging open shelves that will provide you with extra space for utensils, pots, glassware or whatever else you need.

The best part? Open shelves are easy to access, versatile — you can display glassware while still using them for dinnerware — and give your kitchen a modern appeal.
