Before This kitchen is a relic leftover from the 1950s. The homeowners agreed to let us renovate it, but we let you decide what elements would go into the remodel. You voted on the style of cabinets, backsplash and more. Browse through the slides to see what you picked. Cozy Meets Contemporary You choose rustic-style cabinetry in a light finish then topped it off with a solid-black countertop made from recycled paper. You replaced the ancient sink with a stainless-steel model, and then matched that with a recycled-glass backsplash. Floor and Fridge You selected a solid pattern for the linoleum-type flooring. For the fridge, you went with a model that has the freezer on the bottom. A warm cayenne color won the vote for walls.

Even with a limited budget and time frame, a major overhaul can be done on a dated kitchen. For example, this 1950s kitchen in Oxnard, CA is in bad need of an update. Walking into it was like a blast from the past: The knotty pine cabinetry had funky details, the linoleum floor was still intact from its original installation and overall, the space was cramped and dark.

With cracked, stained countertops, worn-out flooring and outdated cabinets, this kitchen is stuck in the 1950s. Plus, the peninsula takes up too much space and makes the room feel cramped.

We’re all for vintage kitchens. They can be beautiful and charming, but they don’t always have everything the modern cook needs. This kitchen hadn’t been touched since it was built in the 1950s, including the 1949 stove and pineapples painted on the cabinets.

I’m not sure what is more impressive about this kitchen: the light, open transformation, or the fact that a couple of brave DIY-ers completed the renovation for less than $10K! Wait until you see all the details, and you’ll know what I mean. I love the white cabinetry in this kitchen makeover paired with accessories in bright, summery hues and metallics. It reminded me of a few other kitchen re-dos I’ve been crushing on lately. (Check out more of my favorites on my Pinterest boards. I’d love it if you’d follow me!)

Back at Cape 27, Jessie and her husband started out with a dowdy, outdated galley kitchen. They kept costs down by maintaining the original footprint of the kitchen. Opening the space up by removing walls gave them room to add a super-functional island and added lots of light. Learn how they did it, below.

“We wanted to keep some of the original retro details such as the stainless-steel sink and metal cabinets,” says homeowner Nick Macke. That’s the initial reason why he and his partner, Ted Moss, decided to go with mostly surface updates to their kitchen. Then they realized that doing so would save a huge chunk of cash as well as the kitchen’s vintage charm.

With a little ingenuity, the dark cramped space was transformed into a bright and functional contemporary kitchen. Barring ripping out all the cabinetry, there were easy ways to give this room a complete “facelift” in a matter of weeks. Here are a few tactics from this kitchen update that can work in any space.

The most important element of any room is space planning. The overall layout in the kitchen was fine, but the cabinets separating the breakfast nook from the sink area blocked the view and conversation, so those were removed and replaced by a small rounded shelf allowing for a few decorative items – always a plus in a kitchen.

Submitted by Cape 27 Hi! I’m Jessie, a wife and mother of two girls under two. My husband and I purchased our second home, a 1950’s ranch, that was in dire need of some TLC. We’ve spent the past six months renovating and DIYing nearly every project we can get our hands on, our first major one being the kitchen. On a tight budget of just 10K to completely gut and rebuild the space from scratch, it’s been quite a ride! Hope you all enjoy the results as much as we do!

The back laundry room was dark and the space was useless, so a wall was removed and the cabinetry was extended by adding an overhead microwave and the under-counter wine fridge. The solid back door was replaced by a glass door, which now floods the room with light. The addition of a cabinet to close in the washer and dryer and a countertop for folding clothes was added to match the other cabinets and made the kitchen feel like it tripled in size.

This kitchen’s monochromatic countertops, cabinets and floors all scream “bland.” The cabinet boxes are in decent shape, but they could definitely use a new look.

Beautiful details and finishes are key to an upscale kitchen, but they don’t have to cost a fortune. At $750, a backsplash made from stacked-stone panels adds a high-end look for a reasonable price. The gorgeous quartz countertops are a smart investment, since they never need to be resealed and will last for years.

Creative, low-cost updates make this kitchen one of a kind. Inexpensive stock cabinets were styled with glass inserts and a coat of white paint, while a nature-inspired mural adds a ton of character for only $125. A custom-built walnut and steel tea cart and an exposed brick chimney add even more unique charm.

Modular granite tiles are a great option for creating a a high-end look on a budget. Not only are they easy to install, but they also cost thousands of dollars less than a granite slab. Stylish, aluminum-frame doors breathe new life into the existing cabinets. Finally, removing the peninsula opens up the kitchen and makes room for a new dishwasher.

Knocking down a wall and adding a large, arched entryway was a dramatic and cost-effective change for this kitchen, transforming it into an open and inviting space for just $710. A new peninsula provides extra seating, while a chandelier, a glass-tile backsplash and wall decals add a bit of glitz and glamour.
