Want a new cooking space without the price tag of a whole new kitchen? Whether you aren’t in a position to remodel because you’re renting or you simply don’t want to deal with the costs, you’re in luck. From cabinets to floors, your kitchen is full of opportunities to make little changes that make big differences. Here are a few of the most cost-effective ways to redefine your kitchen space.
How to Affordably Update Your Kitchen
1. Address Your Cabinets
If your cabinetry is looking dull and dated, it can drag your entire kitchen down. A layer of paint alone can brighten or change the entire feel of your space, but if you think paint won’t help your tired, old cabinets, consider replacing them. Having new cabinets installed is an expensive endeavor, but if you’re a savvy shopper, you can find cabinetry at a surplus store for considerably less. Even if you choose to hire someone to install the new cabinets for you, you’re still spending considerably less than if you’d gone to a major hardware store.
2. Replace Your Flooring
New flooring doesn’t have to be an expensive or laborious endeavor. You don’t even have to have flooring experience to give your kitchen a chic makeover. Luxury vinyl tile can transform the overall look of your kitchen all by itself. Often sold in the peel and stick variety, you can give your floor the appearance of being hardwood or stone, without the cost or upkeep commitment. Luxury vinyl is beveled, so the tiles fit together neatly with grout and you don’t have to worry about corners popping up and dispelling the luxurious illusion.
3. Make a Backsplash
A backsplash is more than just a practical addition to your kitchen to protect your walls; it can easily become an aesthetic focal point in your kitchen. For the sake of your budget, forget about premade backsplashes and make your own. Create a mosaic with alternating tile sizes and colors or go for a single color that complements or contrasts with the color scheme of your kitchen.
