Q: I'm on a budget, but my kitchen needs some updates. Without changing the wall color or the floors, how can I make this room look better? The cabinets are Ash underneath paint. Should I refinish or paint them?

What about the counter tops? Granite is a no-go for cost, but would a laminate look better than the tile?

Thank you for your help, I'm totally addicted to your site!
