Estimated Fixture Cost: $6,000
Gary wanted a modern look that matched his personal tastes. He went for a high-contrast look with the black painted cabinets, the stainless steel details and the white countertops and backsplash. He saved money by choosing two major upgrades, appliances and countertops, and discovered other, more affordable ways to create his perfect kitchen.
Updates Made:
Countertops, painted cabinets, sink, faucet, hardware, backsplash, and appliances

The Remodel is in the Details

Before Appliances

The comfortable kitchen needed a more industrial looking upgrade. So Gary kept his themes and finishes the same for a fully uniformed look. The stainless steel appliances and fixtures tie this entire kitchen together. Notice his decor and electrical plates also follow this stainless steel look.

Before Sink and Faucet

Gary went with a deep, single-basin sink for a more industrial look. It pairs well with the long cabinet pulls and single-hole faucet.

More Upgrade Details

The under cabinet lighting offers a new lighter look and the white backsplash and white countertops keep the kitchen brighter, contrasting with the black cabinets.
