7 Affordable Kitchen Designs

I want to go back in time, knowing what I know now and redesign every disgusting rental kitchen that I ever endured. Sure, there are limitations with a rental, but I’m more and more convinced that had I just invested a little bit of dough and did a lot of the labor ourselves, we could have had a really good kitchen for $1200 (as seen below) instead of living in 1990’s contractor grade depressing garbage.

 

So I enlisted and (art directed) our new contributor, Kelsey Smith, to design some unique kitchen looks, for as inexpensive as possible and she killed it. KILLED IT.

 

A few notes: all these prices include 20 pieces of hardware, 20 square feet of backsplash, and an 8′ counter. Prices do not include paint, as that’s hard to calculate but most kitchens don’t need more than two gallons which is $50, so add that into the total.

 

There is a look for everyone, now go get to it: Classic Cafe Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup French Bistro Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

It’s modern but classic, and with way more personality than you’d think a $1200 kitchen would bring. Clean and Classic Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup marble brass blue white Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

It’s a slightly more feminine and glam sister – but equally as handsome and classic. Contemporary Glam Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup pink black mable chrome Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

We went dark and modern for this one, which isn’t for everyone and, yet, it’s still a visual crowd pleaser. Mid-Century Masculine Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup Brown Black Green Natural Wood Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

Contemporary mid-century and under $1k which is just insane. Minty Mod Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup gold brass tuquoise mint Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

This might be my favorite as I am a sucker for anything “tulip, mint, or gold.” That tile is expensive and, yet, it’s still worth it. Modern Farmhouse Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup rustic dark masculine Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

I love that kitchen, but I’m more struck by how amazing those chairs are for $234 for four of them!! WHAT??? I’m buying those now for our new outdoor patio (stay tuned). Modern Zen Moodboard Affordable Kitchen Roundup boho blue bamboo Budget Friendly Emily Henderson Design

It’s happy, friendly and modern, yet organic. I’d drink wine and lean while pretending to cook so hard in this kitchen.

 

Nail gun to your head – WHICH ONE DO YOU CHOOSE???

 

Ugh. I’m tied between “Clean and Classic,” ‘”Minty-Mod,” and “Modern Zen.” Wait and “Classic Cafe”. GAH. I think “Classic Cafe,” but it’s really close.

 

You?
