Replacing the kitchen cabinets undoubtedly transforms a kitchen—but it's one of the most costly elements of a renovation. Instead of replacing your cabinets, give them a facelift. Remove the doors, then strip and refinish, or repaint them. If you favor an even more dramatic change, get rid of the cabinet doors entirely to create open shelving. Then line the back with decorative wallpaper to put your dinnerware on display.
