"If you want a new look but don't want to entirely redo your kitchen, change out your countertops and switch up your cabinet knobs and drawer pulls. Those efforts are not enormously expensive and shouldn't be too time consuming. (You can even do it yourself to save money.) I love the look of nickel-plated hardware against bright white cabinets." —Alex Papachristidis, author of The Age of Elegance: Interiors By Alex Papachristidis (Rizzoli)
