"When we bought the house, the kitchen was pretty drab with stained linoleum floors, original cabinets and cracked tile counters with an old sink that was literally sinking. Oh, and no dishwasher. We installed the Marmoleum tile floor ourselves (super easy and cheap), repainted the cabinets, added a dishwasher (with wood frame to conceal the fact that the cabinets weren't deep enough) and replaced the counters and backsplash with prefab quartz. I bought an extra slab of quartz to run the backsplash all the way up the wall, which turned out to be cheaper than tile. And I love the seamless look. Presto change-o, new kitchen!"
