A textured or antique rug is a great way to cover dated linoleum.

Cover up: A Turkish kilim runner, like this one from Homestead Seattle, $395, is perfect for a galley kitchen and becomes more beautiful with age. Capitol Hill, 411 E Pine St.; 206.588.5519; homesteadseattle.com

Go for the gold: Create an impact with brass- and gold-tone cabinet hardware or light fixtures, such as Rejuvenation’s Eastmoreland pendant, $525. SoDo, 2910 First Ave. S; 206.382.1901; rejuvenation.com

Accessorize: A Japanese donabe steamer, like this ceramic one from Marine Area 7, $200, can live on your cooktop and divert attention from your old electric burners. Madison Park, 2814 E Madison St.; 206.323.9141; marinearea7.com

Give a green thumbs-up: Adding a plant or two goes a long way toward livening up a kitchen, and it’s one of the least expensive ways to refresh your space. Consider placing a delicate, shade-loving maidenhair fern on an open shelf or north-facing windowsill; you can purchase just such a plant at Ravenna Gardens, $6.95–$18.95. Ravenna, 2600 NE University Village St.; 206.729.7388; ravennagardens.com
