The Penny-Pincher's Guide to Styling Your Kitchen Like a Millionaire

If there's one thing we enjoy more than decorating, it's cooking. Leisurely sipping a glass of wine while concocting a culinary feast (or quick weeknight meal) for our friends or family is truly one of life's simple pleasures, wouldn't you agree? That's why we have so much love for the space where this magic happens: the kitchen. As the hero of the home, it deserves special attention. If yours is looking a little dated right now but you don't have the finances to renovate, don't stress. There are some low-cost kitchen home improvements you can make that don't require a ton of cash. (For those who do, these home improvements are worth the money.)

We called on two of our favorite interior experts to share their budget-friendly kitchen upgrades (rentals included) that don't involve a renovation. Ahead, Portland-based interior designer Max Humphrey and co-founders of Thea Home Inc. Thea Segal and Dorianne Passman share their kitchen home improvement tips to make yours look like a million bucks on a dime.
