  1. i actually like the stainless steel stickers on the appliances could work in a pinch,if you don’t have the money to do a full remodel/upgrade in your kitchen, but still want it to look a little nicer then how it may look now.i think those are the people who the video is directed towards anyways :) of course if you’ve got the money to replace all the appliances then that would obviously be better.

  2. Yeah, nevermind the old toxic plumbing spewing heavy metals into your water supply, unsafe electrical wiring, mold under the sink base and in the walls, inefficient appliances, uninsulated walls, bacteria everywhere, crappy 1/2″ particle board cabinet boxes, etc., etc. Oh, and be sure to use HIGHLY TOXIC vinyl flooring and plastic ‘stainless steel’ shelf liner on your appliances………

  3. Cool….I found a Home Depot Gift Card Worth $1000 To Help Me Out With My Finances, I Think Its available Only For US Citizens Though, Anyone Interested Go To

  4. Step 6, add a butcher block island in the kitchen, this would be sweet!
    I got mine here: ChefDepot . com / kitchentables . htm  (copy link and paste together)

  5. I have 3 Kitchens in my house, and I hired a contractor and a kitchen designer, and it looks GREAT now! I had African black wood put with the carved white cabnits, marble countertops sub-zero fridge and wolf appliances, long hanging lights and an all glass backsplash, total cost was only, $357000!!!!!!!!

  6. I spent about 20K on my kitchen and bathrooms. I got Samsung’s solid surface countertops (white pebble frost color) and solid surface sinks. The cabinet maker made me new cabinets according to the design and specs I drew up on my computer. I had the floor guys come in and put in new vinyl in the bathrooms and kitchen and I replaced the carpeting too. I got a new GE “clean steel” refrigerator, oven and dishwasher. I saved money by ripping out the old floors sinks, faucets and cabinets myself.
