Take a look at this sleek kitchen renovation — you won't believe the before photo! It looks just like many, many small kitchens that we've seen lately.
What a difference, eh?
Even though this was obviously a full-on remodel, with new cabinets, flooring, and appliances, we still find it really inspiring for smaller scale renovations. Even a rental kitchen could get a similar upgrade with a coat of paint (that yellow is so vibrant!) and more modern drawer pulls.
You could even think about replacing your own fridge, lending the landlord's fridge out and taking your own newer fridge with you when you move. (We're currently contemplating this very thing!)
