Kitchen Products I Love

I've been digging around in the nooks and crannies of the internet, searching for awesome and affordable kitchen products. A kitchen should be functional, beautiful, easy to clean, and unique. You can achieve these things without breaking the bank. Here are some of my favorite money saving finds that will create an upscale, comfortable, beautiful kitchen on a budget. 

$49.99 I love this retro looking faucet ... I think it's cute enough to get me to do dishes :) 

This butcher block can be purchased from Ikea at $59.00 at 8ft. If you don't believe me, click the link ... Ikea wins again!  

This tile is actually on the pricey side, but kitchen backsplash makes clean up easy and adds loads of character to your space. The best part is that you usually don't need a lot, so 10 sq ft may do it for you. 
$70.94 for 10 sq.ft. You can find cheaper backsplash tile by heading to a home improvement store and looking at their clearance tile. We purchased backsplash tiles from Lowes earlier this year for our laundry room at just $1.00/sq ft! 

I definitely have an obsession with beautiful (and big) sinks. I feel like this is a good place to splurge a little. It will give your kitchen a custom, high end feel. This gorgeous double bowl sink is priced at $312.98

5. Painted Cabinets
A great way to breath new life into a dated kitchen is by painting the cabinets. You can buy special paint made specifically for painting your cabinets at your local home improvement store and update your kitchen's look in a big way.  

After you get that fresh coat of paint on your cabinets, update the hardware. You can buy pulls like this for $2.54/ea. on amazon. This is one of the easiest ways to update and personalize any space. 

These warehouse pendants are on trend and add a cool industrial feel to a country inspired or modern kitchen. The price is definitely right on this one at just $24.88! 

When updating appliances consider your options. Stainless steal has a high end look, but white will save you some serious cash and never be out of style. This gas range is on sale at Sears for $463.99, cheaper than a new iPhone ;) 

Laminate floor planks come at an affordable price and come with easy install instructions so that anyone can do it. If you choose a wood or laminate floor that you can install your self you will save big on hired help! Lumber Liquidators sell laminate wood planks like this one at just $0.89/sq. ft.!  

I hope you find inspiration from this kitchen board! I know I will be using it in the future ;)
