Updating eighties kitchen
If they are outdated marble or granite (yes, there was a time when dark green was the all the rage) it is best to replace them, but it may be possible to put a new surface on your old benchtops, which really save on costs. Change the lighting You can add more or less task lighting (ie, down lights or spot lights), introduce decorative yet functional lighting via pendant lights, or install a skylight.Each of these things can completely change the look and feel of a kitchen, making it more visually appealing but also increasing its workability. Change your splashback Much like the cupboard doors, changing the colour or material of your splashback can have an incredible lifting effect on the whole kitchen, especially if it has a prominent place in the kitchen. Update your appliances This one is extra fun, because you also get that boost of efficiency that comes with new appliances.
This modern kitchen remodel features black cabinetry, sleek surfaces, hardwood and tiled floors, recessed lighting and a custom stone wall to provide a rich wine-cellar feel. By knocking down the narrow wall, removing upper cabinets and installing skylights, a concrete countertop and glass-etile backsplash, Rate My Space contributor Anne Bub achieved her dream kitchen makeover.

Among the things that have kept me busy this summer, a kitchen renovation right here in Birmingham has been a fun project that I’ve enjoyed working on.
But they did the work themselves when it came to installing the eye-catching, three-light fixture and mosaic-tile backsplash.
Rate My Space contributor Rickand Kristina accomplished a French-country makeover by hand-painting and glazing the cabinets, adding crown and picture molding to the cabinetry, installing recessed and under-cabinet lighting and designing a unique ceramic-tile layout.
