Budget-friendly kitchen updates

When it comes to home design, kitchen renovations are perhaps the most expensive projects to take on. However, if you’re looking for a fresh, new look you don’t need a pricey kitchen makeover. 

When it comes to kitchens with a breakfast nook or center island, lighting can be a great design feature or focal point to work around.

Here are a few inexpensive kitchen remodeling ideas… 

Paint

The least expensive way to bring new life to your kitchen is through fresh paint. Repainting your kitchen walls in a new color can make for a huge impact. 

On the other hand, cabinets make for a large part of a kitchen’s design. Repainting cabinet and drawer faces can also add a bold dash of color to the space. 

Fixtures

Replacing dated kitchen fixtures can make all the difference.  Substitute your time worn kitchen faucet with a modern faucet design to add a new and sleek appeal to your kitchen. 

Hardware

Knobs and pulls on drawers and cabinets also make for a large part of a kitchen’s design. Replacing these is easy - you can even do it yourself. It’s only a matter of choosing new knobs or pulls and using a screwdriver to change the old ones. 

Lighting

When it comes to kitchens with a breakfast nook or center island, lighting can be a great design feature or focal point to work around. Change up your pendant lights or if you don’t have any yet, add decorative lighting to level up your kitchen style. 

Accessories

Revive an old fashioned kitchen by using accessories with charm and personality. Fill display shelves and cabinets with homey kitchen items such as decorative plates and teapots. 

Depending on your budget, you could use all of these changes or just one idea for now. Since there aren’t any renovations involved, you don’t have to do the changes all at once either.  Spreading your schedule over a period of time could also help cut your costs.
