Homeowner Sally Craven took what she calls the "cheap-and-cheerful route," painting over the woodwork in the kitchen, replacing poor-quality tile with butcher block countertops, and adding bright checked linoleum to the floor. What pulls the color-happy kitchen together are complementary colors on the cabinets, windows, and door trim.
