When it comes to updating your home you can often be found assuming that rooms such as the bathroom, or indeed for the purpose of this post, the kitchen, are two expensive renovation projects to take on. You would be right in thinking that. Renovating those rooms entirely with something new is expensive. However, you can also do them on a budget. With that in mind, here are some of the ways you can do that for your kitchen.
Paint the kitchen cupboards
When it comes to your kitchen, replacing it completely is where some of the biggest expense will be, however, if you are happy with the layout, the look of it, then why not make just a few small changes? Painting the cupboard doors could really help you make it feel like a new kitchen with very little investment. Just paint and your time to make it look completely different.
Get the best possible price on new appliances
Part of a kitchen renovation may include getting new appliances, and while you may want to still do that there are things you can consider to help you keep the costs down. You can consider used models and pick up bargains on websites like eBay. If you like to hunt out ways to keep the costs down then online discounts could help you buy brand new appliances for a much lower price.
Change up your colour scheme
Maybe you just want to make some simple changes to your kitchen and even looking at a different colour scheme when it comes to ornaments and accessories could be the answer you are looking for. Many people originally choose a neutral kitchen which then gives them this flexibility to change when it comes to colour. Adding a brighter colour could really enhance your work surfaces and give your kitchen a whole new look without the mega expense.
Change one thing
If you have some budget then why not think about changing one big feature in the room instead? This could be a new wood flooring perhaps or tiling walls maybe. It could be a new light fitting or making more use of windows and doors. Such as installing bifold doors or making the access outside a little easier. All bigger jobs but will possibly cost less than replacing your kitchen. But all could make the space feel completely different.
Add a feature wall
Just as you are considering changing your colour scheme why not think about changing the colour of the walls. A feature wall in a kitchen can be a great addition and could transform the overall look of the space. People consider things like a chalk wall which can then be used for notes or meal plans. Or adding a colour to work alongside your new theme in other parts such as appliances and accessories on display. A feature wall could even be pictures or prints, either of you and the family or from your favourite artist.
Let’s hope that this has given you some inspiration when it comes to changing your kitchen.
