EW: What three inexpensive fixes can revive an outdated kitchen?
EI: 1. Paint is the most inexpensive way to revive any kitchen , and I am not talking just the walls, I’m talking painting cabinets too. (Glidden makes a special paint that hardens like enamel and Scuffmaster is another great choice.)
2. Another option is to simply remove a few doors to reveal open shelving. You can also consider replacing a few wooden door with glass doors. This instantly lightens the space. Then install new hardware (knobs, pulls, etc.).
3. Lighting, both natural and artificial, can change a room dramatically . Adding a skylight refreshes the space with natural light. A combination of recessed lights (as general light) and hanging pendant lights for accent lighting, is a great way to revive a dated kitchen.
