Van Slyke says that two years later, the floors are still holding up nicely.
For the missing pantry doors, she decided to DIY her own which not only add a unique look to the space, but also saved a bunch of money.
If your house is about to go on the market, you need to do more than think. A major overhaul means thousands of dollars, but you can bring your kitchen into the 21st century easily and inexpensively, and you'll get most of your investment back when you sell.
You can get the same pricey feel with inexpensive laminate that looks like granite. If this is outside of your budget, black ones are the next best thing.
“It’s confetti style, which has a very contemporary look,” says Scales.
You can get good-looking facets for under 0 and attractive cabinet pulls for almost nothing. Granite counter tops are the rage, but they are definitely high end.
It's still inexpensive, and your cabinets will look like new.
Van Slyke said her most effective update was painting the cabinets white and adding height.
“It immediately lightened and modernized the space,” she told TODAY Home.
