It seems like everybody is on a budget these days and this next letter is no exception. Dear Genevieve, boy! Do we have a challenge for you? Bring it on. We've got an extremely outdated, dark, dingy kitchen that's crying for your help and here is the kicker. We need a brand-new kitchen for a $10,000. Alright, I see why you want to makeover of this, because it feels really dark, really outdated, and a big cluttered. So how do we attack?
Because there is only $10,000, we really need to focus on money how to finish it. Obviously, use the cabinet tree so that you have. Let's refresh it with the big old coat of paint. So take off all the doors, put on a great industrial primer like a BINZ, and let's bring in a fresh coat of the really nice white paint. There is nothing like white to give a room a new life.
Let's get some updated cabinet pulls and knobs, so definitely bring your cabinets into this century. Bringing a white backsplash with some dark grout really make those subway tiles pop. I think the countertop is going to have to go. It looks like it might be a full marble, take that out and put in an affordable countertop butcher blocks, against all the whites we will be bringing into this kitchen, the wood will look really, really nice.
It's time for the stove top to go and why don't you bring in a brand-new stainless range? And you don't have to do for $6,000 for a stove. You can get a nice one for a $1,000 and then let's bring in a new stainless sink with a new facet and definitely clear out the clutter here. We have way too much going on to the countertop and that tends to make your kitchen feel a lot smaller.
Okay, so let's break this down and attack. We need to work on the cabinet. Strip off the hardware, a great coating of primer, a really nice glossy white paint over that and some new updated hardware, the backsplash. Let's do white subway tile with black grout, the counter needs to go. Let's bring in some butcher block. New appliances, we need some stainless and we need them to function and we need to clear this clutter off the counter. We really let this kitchen breathe.
