I upgraded my apartment kitchen with $1 tiles from Home Depot – and got a ‘marble’ countertop for cheap too | The Sun

A NEW York City resident has added instant glamor to her apartment thanks to her kitchen upgrade.

But this makeover didn't empty her wallet because it cost her less than $100.

Her $1 tiles came from Home Depot and she got a cheap marble-like countertop too.

The finished look was one of effortless chic and city-living cool.

Jae (@jaefinessssed) was delighted with the results of her efforts.

“DIY NYC kitchen upgrade," she said in her post on TikTok.

She seemed surprised at her own home-improvement ambition and compared herself to a children's cartoon character.

“Watch me be Bob The Builder and upgrade my New York City apartment kitchen," she said.

She tackled the flooring first and completely revamped it.

“I went to Home Depot and used these $1 dollar tiles I found," she said.

“Everything is super-affordable. These are the peel-and-stick floors. I’ve been seeing it everywhere."

Once she had finished, it transformed the room.

“Here’s the finished product. It looks so amazing," she wrote.

“I even painted the border white. It was much needed."

But she wasn't quite finished yet. There was one more touch of luxury begging to be done – but on a budget too.

“Also I upgraded my back splash. That was also very affordable along with the countertop.”

She was thrilled to bits with her new-look kitchen and managed to keep a tight reign on expenditure.

“Upgraded my NYC apartment kitchen for under $100,"she said proudly.
