Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis kitchen is transformed with a new color palette, new countertops and a glass backsplash.
Before, this outdated kitchen would have scared buyers away, but now, it is sure to win them over. The beautiful glass backsplash and new sink set a chic, contemporary tone. The cabinets were in good shape, so they were simply given a new coat of paint to show off their architectural details. The mismatched countertops have been replaced by new butcher-block counters, and additional shelves keep the counters clear of clutter by providing more storage.

Cost breakdown:

furniture $689
countertop and backsplash project $603
accessories $249
window treatments $231
paint $145
lighting $65
general supplies $6

Total: $1,988
