Organization tools are great for using space efficiently, such as racks to hang pans that pull out for easy access. Lighting is a big issue, and fixtures are often a focal point, as one wants them to be attractive, effective and easy to clean. Under counter or under cabinet lighting can be a cheap and easy way to upgrade. If one is going a bit further, replace old appliances, such as the stove, dishwasher or fridge.
