We’ve all swooned over gorgeous million dollar kitchens we would love to have in our Dream Home, but how about taking a closer look at kitchens for the rest of us? You don’t need to break the bank to have a fabulous kitchen. The following kitchens are mid-range kitchens to inspire you to implement a few ideas to bring your current kitchen up to date. A little paint, new countertops and open shelving can go a longggggggg way for a relatively small price.
I’m not gonna lie, this first kitchen is my inspiration kitchen for our recent kitchen remodel. I just love it. The open shelves, the drawers instead of cabinets, the subway tile, the skillets…I could go on and on.
By keeping the lower cabinets and replacing the uppers with open shelves, these homeowners spared themselves a huge expense. New countertops allow for a new countertop configuration with the added space of a peninsula. Subway tile and a farmers market sign give this kitchen a great farmhouse update.

Butcher block counter tops are a fantastic alternative to granite and marble for a fraction of the cost. They do require upkeep, but it is not time consuming, and they provide an instant warmth to your space.
You probably have a wall in your kitchen that could easily become a chalkboard wall with a quart of chalkboard paint. Clear the clutter from your countertops, display your Kitchen aid and wooden spoons and enjoy your clutter-free, revitalized space!
Removing upper cabinets and updating hardware goes a long way. The woven shades (you may be surprised how inexpensive these shades can be online) complement the open wood shelving nicely, and the use of an old ladder turned pot rack give this kitchen a great farmhouse feel. A DIY sign atop the windows and a rustic antique farm table complete the space.
Love, love, love the two toned cabinets. You can easily achieve this look with paint. An accent wall of subway tile, a farm sink and clear glass canisters give this kitchen a low key farmhouse look.

Industrial lighting and a peninsula updated with shiplap painted an accent color brought this kitchen up to date quickly an inexpensively. See the full reveal in the link below.
A shiplap accent wall and open shelving can turn any kitchen into a farmhouse kitchen. Add in the charming cow prints and the bottle rack cup holder with some greenery to complete the look.
This talented DIY’er added glass fronts to some of her existing cabinets, which makes a huge visual impact! She then added subway tile, a farm sink and a new faucet. A concrete countertop kit finishes her farmhouse look. (And you’ll never believe it, but this remodel cost just $400!)
Freshly painted cabinets in bright white bring this kitchen up to date quickly. Adding what looks like Stikwood to the peninsula and wrapping pendant light cords in jute are inexpensive ways to get the farmhouse fixer upper look fast!
I adore this kitchen! This would be very easy to replicate using existing cabinets by taking the doors off of some of the uppers and adding glass fronts to others. Beadboard on the side of the cabinets and also for the backsplash adds depth and texture to an all white farmhouse design.
Removing cabinet doors from existing cabinets is an easy way to achieve the look of open shelving without having to repair or paint the walls behind the cabinets. The baskets with DIY numbering fill the void between the cabinet tops and ceiling, while adding a nice touch of farmhouse.
