7 Affordable Kitchen Designs
I want to go back in time, knowing what I know now and redesign every disgusting rental kitchen that I ever endured. Sure, there are limitations with a rental, but I’m more and more convinced that had I just invested a little bit of dough and did a lot of the labor ourselves, we could have had a really good kitchen for $1200 (as seen below) instead of living in 1990’s contractor grade depressing garbage.
So I enlisted and (art directed) our new contributor, Kelsey Smith, to design some unique kitchen looks, for as inexpensive as possible and she killed it. KILLED IT.
A few notes: all these prices include 20 pieces of hardware, 20 square feet of backsplash, and an 8′ counter. Prices do not include paint, as that’s hard to calculate but most kitchens don’t need more than two gallons which is $50, so add that into the total.
It’s happy, friendly and modern, yet organic. I’d drink wine and lean while pretending to cook so hard in this kitchen.
Nail gun to your head – WHICH ONE DO YOU CHOOSE???
Ugh. I’m tied between “Clean and Classic, ” ‘”Minty-Mod, ” and “Modern Zen.” Wait and “Classic Cafe”. GAH. I think “Classic Cafe, ” but it’s really close.
Thanks to Kelsey Smith of Golden Vibes for working with us to round up these budget friendly kitchen ideas. I think we are on to bathrooms next …
