Everyone loves a home makeover, but serious upgrades are often out of a family’s personal budget. Fortunately, there are ways to freshen your kitchen look without breaking the bank (or your back!)
One of the things that dates a kitchen is old wooden cabinets. While replacing them could cost thousands, it’s easy to change an embolden your family’s cooking space for less than $100. Painting kitchen cabinets is an easy way to brighten and liven up your look, and it requires minimal skill. Most people like the look of a bright and airy kitchen, so a white or yellow paint may be the choice for for you. However, if you’re so inclined, fire engine red or granny-smith green may be what you’re after! Remember, if you are planning to sell your home, it’s best to go with more neutral colors. Since it’s a rather inexpensive fix, it isn’t a huge commitment – so get creative! This change can easily be accomplished in a day. Don’t forget to thoroughly clean and degrease your cabinets before you paint them, or the paint may not adhere well. Depending on the original color of your cabinets, it may require two coats of paint.
Another affordable upgrade is to replace old cabinet pulls with new stainless steel ones. At $2 to $3 a piece, these pulls are available at your local home improvement store. With endless selections of style and size, these are easily assembled to cabinets by the most novice homeowner. You can even mix and match – they don’t all need to be the same – it’s up to you! As long as they compliment each other, you’ll have a fresh new look.
A new kitchen rug, potholders and curtains are another way to bring a fresh feel to your kitchen. A theme that speaks to your interests is always a popular choice, and so are bright pops of color, with yellow and red being kitchen favorites. Orange is even en vogue, but it’s also a color that can induce hunger, according to some studies.
Maybe your kitchen needs a fresh coat of paint. Remember that darker colors make spaces appear smaller and lighter ones make them appear bigger. If your heart is set on a particularly bright color, but you don’t want to commit to the whole kitchen being that color, try an accent wall. This is where you paint one wall a bolder color while leaving the rest a neutral shade. Don’t forget that a white ceiling can broaden the sense of space, and years of cooking can dull the paint of a white ceiling.
There are many affordable choices out there – your creativity can personalize your space.
