And, while you might have champagne wishes on a "two buck chuck" budget, you can make inexpensive changes that make a big impact! Here are 8 fun ways to spice up your kitchen for less than $100: 

1. Add an Industrial Touch with Wire Baskets

If you have open shelving in your kitchen, consider using wire baskets in a neutral color like black or silver to hold your cups, mugs, or cloth napkins. The wire will give the space a modern, sleek feel without clashing with your existing patterns. 

2. Throw On a Fresh Coat of Paint

It's an oldie but a goodie. Freshening up the paint in your kitchen with a mood-boosting hue can be a cheap project with amazing results. If you feel like trying something a bit more challenging, paint your cabinets!

3. Keep Things Green

Never buy fresh basil again after you plant an in-kitchen garden filled with herbs that thrive indoors

4. Update Your Food Storage

Embrace your inner Portlandian and invest in some larger mason jars for storage purposes! It's also a great way to begin buying groceries in bulk, which is both budget-friendly and green!

5. Replace Your Old Dishtowels 

Sure, they're not glamorous, but they can still be ridiculously cute. (Or realistic.)

6. Add a Bar Cart

Buzzfeed has us drooling over the possibilities of bar carts for added storage and functionality. (Their coffee cart is a thing of beauty). 

7. Install New Hardware

Turn your boring handles into love handles. Visit a hardware store, fix up your old brass hardware, or check out the offerings from stores like Anthropologie. Or, reach out to our friends at J. Blanton Plumbing to help you install a new kitchen faucet!

8. Try Lighting From a New Angle

Hanging lights, changing the color of your bulbs, or, yes, even mixing wine with Christmas lights can be a great ways to brighten up your kitchen.
