How Do I Get Expensive Looking Kitchen Upgrades on a Budget?

Good Questions

Q: We are planning on moving in 1-2 years, so we don't want to do anything too major or expensive, but our builder-basic kitchen is in need of a few expensive-looking touches! Does anyone have any suggestions on light fixtures, window coverings, backsplashes and anything else that would make our kitchen look like we have spent some money without actually spending any? Thanks!
