Q: My husband and I are in the process of buying a house that needs completely redecorating. We'll be extending the kitchen in a year or so when we can afford it, but in the meantime we need to do a bit of a makeover so it's a bit easier to live with.
We're happy to re-tile, add a new (inexpensive) floor, paint cupboards and change handles, but as we're going to completely re-do the whole thing next year we really don't want to spend too much. Any ideas on what we could do with this small and very dated space in the short term?
