Whether you are thinking about selling your home or not, everyone loves a newly renovated kitchen. The problem is that a fully remodeled kitchen can be quite expensive. Most people don’t have $10,000 on hand to get all of the bells and whistles, but there are some money-saving tips that can help you ease the financial burden. Here’s how you can remodel your kitchen without breaking the bank.
Changing the paint color in your kitchen is a relatively cheap but effective way to transform it into a new room. Ditch that 80’s pink shade and try out some warm neutral colors, which are trending. Or try two contrasting colors to make it feel a little bit more exciting and unique. Do it yourself to save a little extra cash or hire a professional to make sure the job is done to perfection.
Brand new appliances instantly modernize any kitchen, but they tend to be expensive. Stay on the lookout for any potential sales. You can also look into used or overstock appliances. There are usually a few local companies around that discount appliances that were dented or scratched during shipping. If you’re lucky, you might even find an outlet location selling clearance appliances.
Cabinets will also instantly transform your kitchen because they tend to take up a lot of space. Brand new cabinets tend to be pricey, but you don’t have to replace them. Freshly refaced and repainted cabinets are definite eye catchers. Put in some time and sweat to make them shine.
As you probably know, new countertops can be very expensive. What you might not know, is that there is such a thing as countertop leftovers. That’s right! When homeowners have custom countertops installed, the supplier has to cut them to fit the design plan. What’s left over after the cutting can typically be purchased at a deeply discounted price. The downside is that this strategy won’t really work if your kitchen has a ton of counter space that needs to be covered.
Lights, lights, lights, A nice way to make your kitchen pop is with unique lighting. It makes a huge difference in any room. Consider some spots that people wouldn’t typically think of like under cabinet lighting or lights that can be installed behind the backsplash. If you want to be even more unique, think about floor lighting and special pantry lighting!
