A kitchen makeover can range from $5,000 to $80,000. Since most people don’t have $80,000 to drop on their kitchen, we’ve come up with some ideas to get an updated kitchen without breaking the bank. Here are a few of them:
- Paint Your Cabinets
Replacing your cabinets is generally the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel, but you don’t necessarily have to do that. If your cabinets are still in good shape but are just a bit outdated, then painting them is a great way to save a big chunk of money. It’ll look fresh and clean while giving your kitchen an instant makeover.
- Replace Your Light Fixtures
An outdated light fixture can make your kitchen look old. Replacing it with a new light fixture can instantly brighten up the place. There are a lot of different styles to choose from such as modern, rustic, or country style. Be sure to stick to your chosen theme in all of your design decisions.
- Choose Your Countertops Wisely
Countertops are one of the first things noticed about a kitchen, so it’s important to choose one that works with the style of the kitchen. There are so many options such as quartz, granite, butcher block, and corian. Each of these options are great countertops, but remember that granite and butcher block both need to sealed on a regular basis, which is an added cost every time. Quartz may be more expensive initially but it never has to be sealed.
- Buy Used Furniture
When it comes to buying a kitchen table, search on craigslist first. You may find a gem that can be fixed up easily to become what you want it to be. You can even find used light fixtures. It never hurts to look around first!
- Deal Hunt for Appliances
Just because an appliance is used doesn’t mean it won’t look good. Used appliances can be found at Sears, on craigslist, and ebay. Be smart when shopping for used appliances and be sure to ask a lot of questions about functionality.
Remember, when remodeling your kitchen, be sure to set a budget and stick to it!
