Other cosmetic makeovers in the kitchen include repainting the cabinets and replacing the hardware to a brushed silver finish.

Gemma Bonham-Carter, the blogger behind The Sweetest Digs, staged a cosmetic redo of her kitchen by repainting the cabinets, replacing the hardware and installing simple vinyl tile in a bold graphic stripe pattern.“With a tight budget, we try to do a lot ourselves, often buying things ‘preloved.’ I have to be OK with slow and steady progress,” says Bonham-Carter.Learn about how she repurposed goods and saved moneyYour turn: We are constantly impressed by the ingenuity and creativity of our readers and are ready to be wowed anew.

the idea of having a different floor surface/color from the rest of the living room and dining room might help create some visual separation.. and maybe something tougher than just wood.

Bonham-Carter and her husband's solution to a drab and dull kitchen: a cosmetic update of black and white vinyl tiles. "The vinyl tiles are obviously not the most glamorous of flooring options, but since we're saving for a big kitchen remodel, they are a good temporary solution and add a fun diner look to our kitchen," she says. Other cosmetic updates include bright white paint on cabinets and updated hardware.
