Remodeling your kitchen is an expensive task. There are alternative ways to give your kitchen a facelift without breaking the bank. You can remodel your kitchen with upcycling. Here are some ways to get your kitchen remodel done yourself.
- Re-purposed Wood
- Window Panes
- Old Furniture
- Concrete Pots
- Hardwood Floors
- Tin-Tile Backsplash
You can find old wood at a salvage yard, on craigslist, or on the side of the road. There is a lot you can do with repurposed wood to remodel your kitchen. Old wood can be turned into a countertop, a sliding door, side paneling, shelves, or a part of a structure for a bigger project.
There are a lot of single pane windows at yard sales or in trash piles that can’t be used as windows anymore but can be upcycled. You can use it as a cabinet front or a decoration in your kitchen. You could even bring your kitchen outside by building a greenhouse to grow fresh vegetables and herbs.
If you always wanted an island in your kitchen, transform an old desk, bookshelf, or dresser into a kitchen island. All you have to do is paint it and add on a top. You can even move it to wherever you want it.
Concrete pots have multiple uses. They can be turned into lighting fixtures. Simply turn them upside down and hook them up to a track light system.
If you already have old hardwood floors in your home, don’t get rid of them! They can be sanded and refinished to whatever stain you want. You can even put a wax seal on them to keep them safe from spills.
This project shouldn’t cost you more than $100. Replace your current backsplash with tin-tile. It comes in a variety of finishes so it can go with your kitchen, it’s easy to clean, and because it reflects light it will brighten up your kitchen.
