While your kitchen cabinets are more than likely a standard design that can’t be changed, there are other aspects of your kitchen that are much more customizable than you think. You can still create a gorgeous, dramatic kitchen when purchasing cheap, discount kitchen cabinets. The trick is to play up the more commonly subdued aspects of your kitchen. A great place to start is with your backsplash. Your backsplash may blend into your kitchen as an extension of your countertop, or you may not have one at all. But you can turn your plain kitchen into a magazine-ready one by just making one simple change. A simple and commonly used way to do this is by creating an interesting tile mosaic. Stagger small vertical tiles to create a waterfall effect, or use a variety of different sizes or colors for dramatic flare.
