As the popular adage goes, it’s really not about what you have but what you can do with it that matters. Whatever your budget, with a little ingenuity and inspiration, you can give your kitchen a complete facelift with low-priced jobs that offer a high impression.
Here are some ideas for your budget kitchen makeovers:
Reface Kitchen Cabinets
Instead of replacing kitchen cabinets in elaborate expensive kitchen remodelling jobs, think about refacing the cabinet doors. You creatively paint the surface to sport a bolder, vibrant and fresher look. You can take on easy spray painting jobs to transform the cabinets. Also, changing the cabinet handles with new pieces of hardware can award it a squeaky clean look.
Include a Backsplash
Backsplashes add more personality and sophistication to the overall look of your kitchen. The best part is – they aren’t investment heavy, yet attractive and game-changing. You don’t need a large number of tiles, just a few fancy pieces mixed with plain looking ones can be balanced to create an enviable look. Use mirror tiles, decorative tiles, spray painted tiles and mosaics innovatively to create a killer focal point for the space. While you’re at it, consider replacing old appliances with new ones.
Quick Flooring Options
Even if your old flooring is all ugly and worn out, you can change its appearance with simple flooring jobs. Ensure that the existing floor is neatly levelled by a professional before you go about installing everything from laminate tiles in a variety of shades to cork and striking-looking linoleum over the old floor. These can also be done with fairly easy DIY projects.
You don’t need to spend a bomb on renovating your kitchen space. Clever tips such as resurfacing kitchen cabinets, creating a stunning-looking backlash and installing new floors over existing ones are affordable renovation ideas.
