Hide CaptionShow CaptionNew appliances and a new color palette modernize this kitchen space.
Before, this kitchen screamed "retire me." Now, it has a new lease on life. The homeowners splurged for new appliances, which is always a great selling feature. Gorgeous, new granite countertops give the room a contemporary, urban vibe. The tired cabinets were revived with a fresh coat of paint and new stainless-steel hardware. The best part of the overhaul is the new bar connecting the kitchen and dining room. The overhead cabinets were removed and stylish pendant lights hung in their place. The lowered height, new stools and granite surface make the bar a welcoming and very functional focal point.

Cost breakdown:

granite tile $523
cabinet hardware $157
dining room set $362
bar stools $241
chandelier $195
window treatments $224
paint and accessories $296

Total $1,998
