Nate fixes a laundry list of things in the kitchen for a small amount of money. A quick coat of Lowe's American Tradition paint in Swiss Coffee transforms old cabinets from bland to beautiful. New nickel knobs helps further update the look. "It completely changes the feeling of the construction in here," Nate says.
The biggest addition to the kitchen by far are four new stainless steel GE appliances. "If I were a prospective buyer I would walk in here and go, 'There is nothing I need to do. This place looks fantastic,'" Nate says.
Making this room move-in ready cost only $3,947—including the grout and floor repairs made earlier, the appliances, a new cabinet, new kitchen towels and a rug!
