Whether you’re renting and can’t do a lot of permanent damage or even if you own a house but just don’t have a budget to tear everything out and start from scratch, you can still make impactful changes and additions that will make your kitchen quite a bit nicer to look at (and nicer to use, too).
Many times it’s not just the look of a kitchen that rubs folks the wrong way when they’re unable to do major renovations; it’s the fact that it doesn’t function that great. So consider DIYing or buying a chopping board that covers your kitchen and stove when you’re not using them to add extra space to work. Or invest in a rolling cart that’s at a height you can work at. Even look into installing a narrow shelf that can double as a workspace and a cafe counter.
