“What can I do to upgrade my kitchen on a budget?” I get this question a lot. Everyone wants to have their dream kitchen. But, not everyone can afford the cost and/or the time that it takes for a remodel. Typically, getting a new look is as simple as a new backsplash and some fresh paint. But, if you are looking for more of a customized look, you may want to consider adding stacked cabinets. So, let’s go over how to install stacked cabinets and when it is a good solution.
Of all the rooms in a house, the most detailed and complex to design is the kitchen. It is also arguably the most important room in a house. Most of us will, at some point in our lives, want to remodel, design, or upgrade a kitchen. Sometimes, that requires the help of a trained interior designer. Other times, the homeowner is completely capable of handling that job themself. With that in mind, I thought this DIYer’s guide on how to design your own kitchen might come in handy. At the very least, it should provide a good place to start and help you to determine if you will require assistance.
I truly believe that base cabinets were placed on earth as some cosmic joke. Well, maybe it’s not that extreme, but it certainly is aggravating to try to store things in them. You either end up with everything right at the front and a ton of wasted space in the back, or you have to take everything out anytime that you need something. Adding drawers is the solution, but so many people tell me that while they love DIYing, they just don’t have the skills or tools to do something so drastic. However, there is an easy way to add pull-out drawers to bottom cabinets, and I am going to show you exactly how!

How to Clean a Dishwasher (my 411) – I grew up in one of those households where it was the kids’ responsibility to wash the dishes after dinner. Oh, how I hated washing those dishes! There was almost always an argument over whose turn it was, or who would wash and who would dry. I begged and pleaded for a dishwasher, which I was convinced would solve all of my teenage problems. So, when I moved into my very first place – back when I was still too young to even purchase alcohol – I invested in a dishwasher. It wasn’t too long after that purchase till I discovered that a dishwasher has its own source of problems.
