You don’t need to completely gut your kitchen or your pocketbook to upgrade your space. The average kitchen remodeling project can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars up to $60,000, depending on the scope.
Thankfully, you don’t have to pay out large amounts of cash to renovate your kitchen.
Whether you’ve lived in your home for years or just moved in, read on to learn 9 easy ways to upgrade your space and make your kitchen look amazing without breaking the bank.
9 Quick Fixes That Upgrade Your Kitchen
Changing out Drawer Knobs and Pulls
Changing your cabinet knobs and pulls is one of the quickest and easiest ways to upgrade your kitchen.
You can opt for a variety of finishes and colorful alternatives. Plus, they’re easy to find at local craft and home improvement stores, or even online.
Overcome the temptation to get something overly “unique.” Knobs that look like spoons and forks could be fun initially, but can get outdated very fast.
Repainting the Cabinets
If you want a more personalized touch than the standard white cabinets, or if your cabinets have a passé finish, consider adding a pop of color. You can try warm reds, calming greens or blues, or even yellows.
All these are all-purpose options, which blend well with a variety of different finishes.
Painting the Floor
If your wooden kitchen floor is outdated and you’re avoiding expert refinishing, you can paint the floor instead. White is classy, but tough to keep clean. It will show every fallen crumb. However, pale blue and gray are very chic alternatives.
You can even get creative by patterning a design on your floors. No matter your style, floor painting can help you achieve the look you want.
Replacing Cabinet Doors
One major kitchen upgrade is replacing cabinet doors with glass-paneled ones. For instance, you can pick frosted glass to add an elegant touch on the kitchen cabinets.
Moreover, you can remove the cabinet door to have open shelving. An open shelving effect makes your kitchen feel larger and gives you an opportunity to display your bowls and dishes.
Updating the Lighting
Updating kitchen lighting can vastly improve your space, plus increase visibility for cooking.
Classy pendant lights can easily become the new focal point of your kitchen. Most pendant lights are a versatile option, elegant, and less than $150, which is quite affordable.
Good lighting is essential for any space, and this one replacement will utterly renovate the entire kitchen.
Considering Window Hangings
Did you know that the right curtains can genuinely spruce up your kitchen?
However, consider which type of drapes would work best around the space and which you will hang on the window on top of the sink.
You should not find curtains with lots of heavy fabric since any sink splashes can damage the curtains.
The perfect option to keep things looking nice and not endanger the fabric is Roman-style shades. You can easily pull them up while cleaning dishes and then back down when you’re done!
Adding an Easy-Clean Backsplash
If fitting a conventional tile backsplash is out of your DIY lane, getting a backsplash generated from a sheet of hard surface material may save you some money. Gluing, cutting, and shaping this low-priced material is a weekend task that most people can complete with confidence.
When you finally have your shiny new backsplash in place, it will be such a chic protector from splatters and splashes, and you will be grateful you chose this route.
Replacing Counter Tops
Replacing kitchen countertops is less expensive than you may think and can make your kitchen look stunning and classy.
For example, you can replace your old countertop with a new laminate at an affordable price.
Adding a Rug
If your house has crumbled, unsightly, laminate floors, making your kitchen feel old and cheap, you can always add a rug. This will cover up any unsightly spots and brighten up the room.
Plus, it gives you an opportunity to add another pop of color to your kitchen space.
Likewise, adding a rug that complements your cabinets and another decor will divert attention away from any components you don’t like as much.
