Replacing Rugs, Towels and Accessories – If you can’t do more than one larger project, changing rugs and towels can accent other changes and buy you time to save for the next big change.

Kitchen Cabinets – If they are in good shape, you can paint, refinish or resurface your current cabinets. Refinishing is the most popular method of refreshing kitchen cabinets. Refinishing is durable and can last as long at 15-20 years. Painting may be a good choice for someone wanting to create a more dramatic color change and is a more cost effective manner of updating.

Like rugs and towels, etc., varying fabric choices can help set a seasonal tone for a kitchen. Keep this in mind when considering window treatments.
