When I moved into my condo, the kitchen had wood cabinets (no hardware) and dark green (textured) laminate countertops. The walls were yellow and there was no backsplash. Before I moved in, I had the cabinets and walls painted white (Benjamin Moore Super White PM-1). I bought granite countertops and a new sink to replace the laminate ones. I found a granite on sale (I believe the total cost was around $1,500). I added hardware to all of the cabinets. I also added a subway tile backsplash. The kitchen was ready in 2 weeks.
