It’s when they made a drastic renovation to a 75-year-old kitchen.

This space had not been touched since 1948, and when the Flippers did, they ensured it was worth it.

The process

It starts with their demo.

They removed the old cabinets and demolished the sink.

They pretty much emptied the entire kitchen and completely took down the wall coverings as well as the floor tiles.

Seeing the uncovered floors, it was so old that they needed to sand it.

Thankfully, the outcome was great.

Then, they started painting.

The kitchen’s trim was the first thing they painted, and they made the perfect decision by painting it white.

This project shows that kitchen cabinets are expensive.

According to the Flippers, they spent $7,000 on the kitchen cabinets.

That’s 70% of their total budget.

Was it worth it?

Yes, it was.

It’s because these cabinets are custom American-made.

These pieces of furniture also succeeded in elevating the overall look of the kitchen.

As for the countertops, they opted to have a concrete countertop instead of marble or granite.

Many DIY enthusiasts are aware that this is not only cheaper, but it is also versatile.

Additionally, there are numerous options to design your concrete countertops, allowing you to customize them.

Don’t want a plain concrete countertop?

No problem, because you can also dye it with pigment stains.

In fact, you can choose colors that can resemble the look of granite or marble.

For the kitchen backsplash, they used classic white tiles.

It was the cheapest option, yet it still gave the sink a more classy look.

Not to mention how the faucet they chose boosted the aesthetic appeal of the entire basin.
