Tips on how to make your kitchen look new, without breaking the bank.
Painting your cabinets is one of the easiest ways to change up the look of your kitchen, and it can be done without spending too much money. If you have dark cabinets, lighten them up with a white or cream color. And, if you want to add a pop of color, think about painting your island a different color...this can be fun and add a little flavor to your kitchen.
2. Change out your sink and faucet
Something as little as changing out your sink and faucet can make your kitchen look brand new. Whether you’re going for the stainless steel look, or the farmhouse sink look, changing out your sink will bring a new look to your kitchen.
3. Add a backsplash
Adding a backsplash is something that can get very pricey...but if you get creative, you can manage to add a backsplash without breaking the bank. Subway tiles are one of the most cost effective materials to use when changing out or adding a backsplash to your kitchen. Typically found in showers or bathtubs, subway tiles have made their way to the kitchen and they are one of the newest trends for adding a backsplash to your kitchen. They offer a bright and clean look. When creating your backsplash out of subway tiles, you can create different patterns...for example, herringbone, for a fancier look.
4. Change out your light fixtures
Based on what look and feel you’re trying to go for in your kitchen, try and pick light fixtures that are going to go along with that. You can either go with pendant lighting, chandeliers, recessed lighting, etc. but make sure that you pick out whichever look is going to go best with the overall theme of your kitchen.
5. Get new handles and pulls
Getting new handles and pulls can really change up the look and feel of your kitchen- and it’s not that expensive.
Decorate your kitchen with fun, decorative bowls, an area rug or floor mat to bring in some color and design, or wall art! Decorating can really spice up the feel of a kitchen, in a cost effective way. Try putting out glass jars, on your counter, to put sugar, spices, etc., which will bring out colors, while also storing your kitchen essentials.
Whether you’re on a tight budget or not, these tips will help you redesign your kitchen and make it a place that you want to spend time in. Don’t make your kitchen dull, spice it up and get excited about cooking meals for your loved ones.
