The time has come to get a fresh look in your kitchen. After scrolling through Pinterest and seeing all of the beautiful kitchen layouts there, you’re ready to make your own look the same. You’re not alone; one in 10 households renovate their kitchen each year. Most homeowners are looking to make a big change with a small budget. Here are some tips to totally revamp your kitchen on a tight budget.
This tip may seem obvious, but starting a big project with a specific plan and budget will help you stay on track. One of the number one ways home renovators overspend on a project is by purchasing items during the process. If you have all of the new materials, paints, and decorative items selected before you start renovating, you’ll be able to avoid over-spending and switching things up during the process.
Replacing cabinetry will not only cost you an arm and a leg to purchase, but requires serious skill or professional help to install. Save yourself time and money by giving your cabinets a fresh coat of paint. You can go with a new coat of white, or try out a two-tone look. You’ll be surprised at how much of a difference that simple change can make.
This may be one of the pricier areas of your budget but will also have the greatest impact on the new look of your kitchen. The most popular types of stone to use are granite countertops, marble countertops, and quartz countertops. While new countertops may be a larger section of your budget, it doesn’t have to take the whole bank. Checkout a remnant yard for leftover materials at a discounted price, especially if you don’t have a lot of countertop space to cover. Replacing the surfaces in your kitchen will give you that extra change you need to go from “meh” to Pinterest worthy.
The lighting in your kitchen can have a huge impact on the look of your kitchen. Simply changing your lightbulb from cool tones to warm tones can make a huge difference with a small price tag. You can also check out new lighting fixtures to create a focal point and provide more lighting. Try thrifting a vintage fixture at your local secondhand shop.
While adding a sink to your island may seem like a great idea, altering the plumbing in your kitchen is a quick way to make your budget skyrocket. A change that you think would be simple could end up costing thousands of dollars. Unless you have a serious concern with elements of your plumbing, keep it where it is for now.
