We have 80's style white European kitchen cabinets. Is there an inexpensive way to modernize them without spending a small fortune?

The easiest way to update dated kitchen cabinets is to paint them and change the hardware. With a plain white kitchen, how about painting the base cabinets in a deeper colour which is found somewhere else in the house. If you wish to keep the kitchen white, paint some of the cabinets in a high gloss white to offset the existing sheen levels for added interest. Brushed nickel or polished chrome pulls installed horizontally will give you an added modern touch.
