Your New Kitchen

Switch up your cooking space with one—or all—of these updates. Total cost = under $12K!

Cabinets
Update your kitchen with white, streamlined cabinets. For a cool tool to map it out, go to ikea.com, click on “IKEA planning tools” in the Kitchen tab and go to “Kitchen planner.” When installing cabinets, leave room to clear your dishwasher and oven door handles.
Get It: Akurum enamel cabinets, $850 (8 upper/5 lower); Lansa stainless steel handles, $112 (28 handles)
Where: IKEA stores

Appliances
Harvest gold and avocado (blech!) may have been in style when your kitchen was designed, but stainless steel, white or black are all the rage now.
Get It: Fridge, $618; cooktop, $280; wall oven, $1,000; dishwasher, $350
Where: Sears.com

Flooring
Today's homeowners are choosing sustainable materials, like bamboo or cork, for kitchen floors. Worried about wood in a high-traffic area? Throw down a brightly patterned rug and you're good to go.
Get It: Bamboo flooring, $8/sq. ft.
Where: The Home Depot (special order; select hand-scraped bamboo in Toast)
