You don’t need to be rich to have a stunning kitchen. You can remodel your kitchen on any budget. If you want to update your kitchen without spending a fortune then here are some of the ways you can freshen up your kitchen on a budget.
Repaint Cabinets Rather Than Replace Them
If your cabinets are still in good condition you might not need to replace them. You can just repaint them instead. Pick the right color for your kitchen and decide between light and dark colors, depending on the rest of your kitchen.
You can also remove just the doors from the cabinet and replace them with glass-front doors. Just refreshing your current cabinets can save you money when remodeling your kitchen while still giving it that newer appearance.
Add More Storage
You may be able to add a moveable center counter to your kitchen depending on how much room you have and the size of the cabinet. This gives you more counter space and increases your storage space, while not costing all that much. This is a great idea if you want to upgrade the cabinets but you don’t have the budget for it. Using a moveable counter is a great way to complement your refreshed cabinets.
Update The Countertop Materials
Are you getting tired of your old countertops? You can keep your old cabinets while also updating the counters to add to the new, cleaner look of your kitchen.
There are affordable options such as laminate. You can also save money elsewhere and invest in more expensive and elegant granite countertops. You can also choose concrete if you can’t afford granite. Concrete can be integrated on to any countertop and can be stained to any color and style you choose. They are also a lot less expensive than granite and quartz, and only marginally more expensive than a laminate top.
You’ll really be surprised at what just updating the countertops can do for your kitchen.
Improve the Lighting and Fixtures
It may sound a little simple to just improve the lighting and update the old fixtures in your kitchen, but doing so adds a lot of value to your remodeled kitchen.
You can save money on doing this by finding great deals online or sales at a local store. Also invest in new cabinet hardware or in a new faucet for the sink. Find some high-quality hardware to improve the look of your kitchen without breaking the bank.
Update Your Appliances Buying “Gently Used” Equipment
Everyone wants to buy brand-new appliances, but you can still upgrade your kitchen equipment without spending a lot of money. You’ll still have access to really great equipment too.
A great way to upgrade your kitchen appliances is buying from your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. These stores are non-profit home improvement stores that double as donation centers. They are filled with affordable appliances for any room including the kitchen. You can also feel good knowing that the money you spend there helps other people find more affordable housing.
Know When You Need Professional Help
There are plenty of DIY tips that can make remodeling your kitchen more affordable. However you should know when you can handle something alone and when you need to bring in a professional to help out. While you may be able to paint a cabinet or wall on your own, it’s best to leave things like installing cabinets and counters, flooring, electricity, and plumbing to the professionals.
An experienced contractor will ensure that the work is done properly and with the best level of craftsmanship. Qualified kitchen contractors also work quickly and efficiently, letting you enjoy your new kitchen faster.
