Cheap and Chic Kitchen Design Ideas
Retro Dishes – Buying retro-style dishes from Target can get expensive, quick. Other higher end department stores are even more expensive and online dealers can be pricey and shifty too.

Fruits and Flowers – Decorating your kitchen with a few well-placed flower vases and a fruit bowl can really add some pizazz for a small amount of cash. Fruit is something you probably already have in your kitchen. Purchase an awesome fruit bowl and show off your good taste. Dried flower arrangements can be virtually free; if you pick and dry them yourself. Purchasing a few dried floral is just as good. The perfect place for dried flowers in the chic kitchen is on top of the cabinets.
Ceramic Tile Backsplash – Installing a ceramic tile backsplash can add a burst of light into an otherwise dull and outdated set of cabinets. You don’t have to replace your cabinets, but the colored ceramic tile backsplash will make them look like brand new. With tons of colors, shapes, sizes and grout combinations, you’re sure to find a backsplash design that suits your chic kitchen. Ceramic tiles are cheap too. At many construction salvage yards, cheap tile can be an easy find. But take caution when buying sets of tile from a scrap yard. Make certain they all match and make sure you have enough to finish the job.
The easiest way to create a chic kitchen design that looks great but doesn’t cost a fortune is to be creative and be clever; create DIY accessories, buy second hade appliances and remake some old stuff.
