Rhoda of the blog Southern Hospitality has never been shy about talking about money. So, it only made sense that when she posted the photos of her IKEA kitchen renovation she'd include a full cost breakdown of what it took to update the kitchen's country style into a more transitional design. Check out what her kitchen looks like now, and how she did it for $8,700.

Beautiful! At only 7 feet wide and 13 1/2 feet long, Rhoda's kitchen isn't huge, "but it’s very functional and the layout has proven to be super efficient," she writes. The renovation included, among other things:

  • Professionally installed ($1,075) ADEL cabinets and hardware from IKEA ($4,133)
  • A new microwave ($200), range ($657), and refrigerator ($810)
  • Kashmir White Granite countertops ($1,300)
  • Subway tile, including grout ($125)

A few of Rhoda's favorite features in her new kitchen include the rustic open shelves ("they just make my kitchen"), and the lower cabinet drawers, shown above. They're "definitely one of my favorite things about an Ikea kitchen," she writes. "The drawers glide like buttah! And the soft close? Get out."
