Ideas for Refreshing a Rental Kitchen on a Budget?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I know that the amazing Apartment Therapy community has given copious advice on the subject of rental kitchens, but I hope that you don't mind chiming in on one more. I'd like to rehab this kitchen on a limited budget (under $500). The landlord has approved painting cabinets and walls, but I'm having a hard time choosing colors that will work with the beige laminate countertops. I'm also open to laying down Flor tiles or some other inexpensive flooring option. What changes will provide the most bang for the buck, and if you think paint is the way to go, which colors should go where?
