Do you love spending a lot of time in your kitchen? Are you planning to give your kitchen a new touch of design because you are bored with the old one? If you don’t want to throw a big amount of money and remodel it by yourself, we have some budget-friendly ideas that can make your kitchen look more inspiring and opulent.
Adding a faux island
Stand-alone tables or cabinets can be a budget-friendly option for an island kitchen. Add rolling casters and move them where ever you want. It doesn’t mean that the more furniture you add, the more money you will need. Check if you already have a piece of a table that you are not using, set it up, and turn into an island. If you don’t have it at home, there are many low-cost simple tables you can find in the stores and give it a luxurious look.
If you do some fixtures on the cabinets and countertop it will be a five-star renovation. But if your cabinets are in decent shape, you can invest in new countertop and upgrade one of the hardest working furniture pieces in your house. The smaller the surface piece is, the smaller the upgrading price is. In addition to that, you can afford more expensive material.
Change the backsplash
Changing a worn out backsplash adds a new touch to the kitchen design. It is a great way to freshen up the kitchen and change visuals. You have tons of options to choose from such as stone, tile, glass, ceramic, and beaded board. There are plenty of materials to choose from and find the ones that are matching your budget. Another option is to only install a backsplash where it gives the most protection needed, like behind or near a kitchen sink.
Upgrade cabinets or cabinet doors
For changing the look of your cabinets you can use paint, wallpaper, or peel and stick wood products. These are very cheap options that will give a new look to the old cabinets in your kitchen. Another option is to add corbels below cabinets or under floating shelves to give a classic look to your kitchen. Removing the doors from the upper cabinets will provide easy access storage and it will give an open space design to the kitchen. Another tip we can give you is to look for ways to refresh your home that not only fit your budget but also to learn how to use your room space.
