Kitchen appliances can also be painted or refaced in order to give the kitchen a makeover. Reface the refrigerator or dishwasher by purchasing a replacement face panel. If a replacement frame is not readily available for the particular refrigerator, customized ones can be ordered from online retailers. The stove manufacturer is a good source for replacement burner plates, glass cooktops and worn stove knobs to further reface the kitchen.

Metal appliances can be painted with an appliance refinisher. Additionally, porcelain stoves can be easily reporcelainized by a refinisher designed for bathtubs.

Kitchen floors can be rejuvenated through resurfacing or covering. Wooden floors can be refinished and stained to a different color, while stone floors can be made more lustrous through professional polishing. For flat and sound wood or linoleum floors, it is possible to cover them with flooring primer and paint, sheet flooring or vinyl tiles that stick down onto the floor's surface.
