Tips to remodel your kitchen on a small budget
Making your kitchen look high-end and luxurious doesn’t have to be expensive. There are lots of things to consider when planning a kitchen renovation on a budget.
Try these tips and save some money during your renovation project.
A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your kitchen
A fresh coat of paint is the simplest and cheapest way to update your kitchen. You may want to consider painting the top cabinets white and the bottom cabinets a cobalt blue to create a two-tone effect.
Consider a free-standing island
For many people, the perfect kitchen isn’t complete without the perfect kitchen island. The kitchen island with a sink and dishwasher is considered one of the most important ones for the perfect kitchen. However, this custom island can cost quite a bit of money.
But you can find a lot of options for free-standing kitchen islands that aren’t as expensive as a real one. It is possible to purchase a kitchen island with storage underneath for under $500
Consider laminate counters
Counter tops made of granite, stone, and marble are very popular, but can be quite expensive. Think about laminate if you have a small renovation budget. While laminate countertop has a bad reputation, it can save you a lot of money that you can spend on upgrading your appliances instead
There are many options for laminate counters that look similar to granite, stone, or marble until you inspect them closely and realize they’re laminates.
Open some shelves
Open shelving provides an elegant way to visually enlarge any space. This is a hot trend right now. The effect can visually add height to a room, maximize overall function and eliminate the cost of additional cabinet doors. Additionally, open shelves provide a beautiful display for dishware, cookware, and artisan pieces.
Change your backsplash
A new backsplash can instantly revamp the look and feel of your kitchen and reflect your personal style. This isn’t very expensive and it helps to brand your kitchen almost as much as the cabinets you choose.
