You should base what you include in your kitchen and how you design it on your own personal tastes and preferences. Here are some easy ways that you can update your kitchen.
You could start by looking at the functionality of the kitchen you have now. It may do you some good to get a few new appliances. You could add workstations to add space for preparing food or doing whatever work you do in your kitchen. You can add a sink or even, or even go with some energy efficient appliances in order to enhance how functional your kitchen is. Adding one or two things can have a huge impact on your overall design, more so than you might realize.
Floors and Counters
Typically, the floors and the tops for the counters are going to be the most expensive additions to the remodel. However, there is normally no way to get out of having to buy them. You can’t substitute the effect on updating these areas will have on the design. When you think about it, the floors and the countertops have the biggest impact on how your kitchen looks. You can use these, however, as the centerpiece for your design ideas.
Cabinets and Hardware
One of the best things that you can do for your kitchen is to replace or remodel the cabinets. If your cabinets are old and worn, you may want to consider replacing them. However, if they are still good functionally, updating them may be the cheaper option and resurfacing your cabinets will provide you with immeasurable results.

Where to Put the Money
One of the best things you can do for your kitchen is not spend all your money in one place. Rather, you should consider spreading your money out over a few different areas. You want to make sure that the design stays as matched as it can be. If your floors clash against a kitchen that is out of date, it really doesn’t matter that they are the latest trend. If your brand new countertops are over cabinets that are rotting and falling apart, it’s not going to look nice.
