Paint the Cabinets: If your cabinets look dated and old, yet new cabinets are not in your budget, paint them for brand new look. You can use a color to match your trim color in your home, such as white, or venture out with a bold color such as a green or yellow.
One benefit of any type of tile flooring, including marble, is that if it is damaged or stained, you only need to replace the damaged tiles, not the entire floor. With a carpet or hardwood floor, significant damage would require replacing the flooring for the entire room. You may want to consider buying some spare tiles, in case you need to replace some in the future. Styles change, and you may not be able to find an exact match to your flooring after a few years.
