Before, this kitchen was drab and dated with fruity wallpaper, a dirty floor and so-so cabinets. Now, it is updated from top to bottom and has added a lot of value to this home. The faux-crackled border paper has been replaced with a nice, neutral paint color. Glass insets and new hardware give the cabinets an updated vintage look that is very popular with home buyers. A new travertine tiled backsplash adds even more style and value and it matches the countertop perfectly. Laminate floor tiles were easy to install and an inexpensive way to help make this room shine.
