Cheap Home Improvements

Home Builder with PEP source

One of the many houses that we have lived in and remodeled over the years needed more cabinet space. We decided to move the refrigerator and added additional lower cabinets. We were able to match the cabinet doors on the bottom cabinets by using the doors from the laundry room that just happened to match and were the right size.

Since we moved the refrigerator the upper cabinets were too short. We went to Lowe's and looked at the cabinet displays and there was the answer. We bought a piece of shelving board and some dowels, went home and made a plate rack. I worked with the stain until I got it to match. When the project was finished everything matched. We added additional counter space and storage space and a nice place to display our plates. All in all this project cost very little, it added about 3 feet of counter space to and cabinet space to the kitchen and an attractive plate rack to display dishes. We felt like we added value to the house.

This is good to know. I'll pass this information on to my clients who are renovators.

Brain: Hope it works out for them. It was a great and cheap fix that really dressed up the kitchen.
