Easy Kitchen Makeover Ideas

The kitchen is the place where many of us spend a great deal of time. However, those with a small kitchen sometimes need a little pick-me-up to make their kitchen feel fresh. If a costly remodel is out of the picture, consider the flexibility of a new kitchen cart.

 

Stationary kitchen carts offer a new world of highly functional storage. Add some extra dining space which is great for homework, crafts or just the ideal spot to snack on a muffin before school. Kitchen islands also add extra storage space within your kitchen—which there never seems to be enough of, regardless of how large or small your kitchen is.

Please the rustic cottage crowd with the rustic cherry finish of the Aspen kitchen island series. If you don’t like the stools that are included, seek out a pair of country kitchen counter stools that add a bit of mountain lodge charm with wrought iron accents.

 

The best part of purchasing a kitchen island is you can make a quick change to your kitchen for under $1100. That’s some serious small-budget decorating wile still adding a hint of designer flair. Now it’s time to invite your friends over and feed on the compliment frenzy.
