Add or change lighting. If the lighting in your kitchen is dim, or you hate the overhead fixture, change it! Switching out an overhead light fixture is much easier than it sounds. It doesn't have to be super expensive, either.

Change drawer or shelf liners. When was the last time you changed those shelf liners? Or maybe you don't have any at all. Laying down a fresh non-stick liner will a) give you an opportunity to take everything out of your cabinets and put them back in an organised way, and b) clean the cabinet or drawer so you start out fresh. i will be doing this on the weekend. a nice fresh change, don't you think?

Replace the faucet. This is a very simple, straightforward way to upgrade your kitchen, particularly if it's a rental. Really, anyone can do it!

Update the hardware. Switching out your old knobs or pulls for something more modern or decorative can really really transform the look of your cabinets.

Add pull-out shelves and/or drawer organisers. Sliding shelves and organizer inserts go a long way towards making you feel a little more in control of your kitchen. 

Add more storage space with small wire shelves. Wire shelves and un
der-cabinet baskets make sure you're using all the space available in your cabinets, and even your fridge and freezer.

Get a great dish rack. Even something as little as a new dish rack can update and enhance th elook of your kitchen.

Cover ugly countertops. Putting in brand new countertops is not a small change. So to improve on what you have, try one of these tips: if you're a renter and can't make any permanent changes, top a portion of your countertop with a big, handsome cutting board. It's functional and good-looking.

Bonus tip: Buy something pretty: a bouquet of flowers, a new tea towel, a watercolor print for above the stove. Treat yourself and your kitchen to something nice.
