Completely renovating your kitchen is a time-intensive and expensive endeavor. But with a few smart tweaks, you can make your kitchen feel brand new for a fraction of the price of renovating. As Home Depot's Director of Trend & Design, Sarah Fishburne, puts it, "Sometimes all you need to improve a kitchen and to love it again is to improve the function of the kitchen. By organizing and making the kitchen function it will flow better. First go through all your gadgets and purge any that are falling apart and if you have duplications that you do not need."After that, Fishburne recommends spending some time relocating items in your kitchen to increase efficiency. "Ask yourself is something in the best location for where you need it, i.e., consider your coffee maker — where are the coffee mugs? This does not need to be all done overnight so pick the areas that give you the most headaches and start there," she says. Ready to get started? Read on for our favorite Home Depot kitchen upgrade ideas, all for under $100.

We love this polished look, and the price tag to boot. "A quick and easy idea [to upgrade your kitchen is to] change out the hardware in the kitchen," notes Fishburne. "Sometimes the style or finish is dating the kitchen and switching them out will make it feel new and fresh. Only thing to keep in mind is you want to keep the knob or pull dimensions to match so you are not covering up or drilling holes."
