How should I modernize this kitchen without spending a lot?

4 years ago

In a year or two, we would like to renovate the kitchen/dining/living areas so I do not want to put a lot of money into the space right now... However, until that reno time comes, I would like to make a few small changes that will help modernize the space and brighten it up a bit

I'm torn on what to do in this kitchen... I was thinking about staining the cabinets darker, painting the back splash tiles white & painting the walls... however... I'm a complete newbie and I'm not confident in my decisions at all.

Few things to note, that table will not be there - I'm planning on getting a high, thin bar table (wood and steel) that will go above the radiator w/ 2 bar stools.

I really like dark rustic & industrial design. I also don't plan on changing the flooring until reno day so I'll have to work around that as well.

Any advice would be much appreciated :)

Thank you!
