Easy Kitchen Makeover!

The world of foreclosures and rehabs can be very scary but if you have vision and experience you can give a space new life and a chance to make a new family happy.  For cost efficiency consider keeping the plumbing in the same place and if that is impossible try to keep it along the original wall.  Anytime you can avoid moving utilities it will save you money and sometimes headaches when rehabbing.  Details like granite counter tops and sophisticated lighting update this modest 1960’s kitchen. Try using accent furniture pieces for interest and storage.
