If you want to give your kitchen a budget-friendly upgrade, we have the solution. It’s possible to renovate your kitchen without breaking the bank, especially if you reduce labour costs by doing the work yourself. Here are five ways to update your kitchen on a budget while adding style and functionality to one of the busiest areas of your home:
1. REFRESH THE CABINETRY
2. UPDATE THE FAUCET & APPLIANCES
Swap out your dated tapware with a stylish MOEN faucet for an instant update. You may decide to allocate most of your budget to a new kitchen appliance or sink. If you choose to upgrade a kitchen appliance, consider its energy efficiency for long-term savings. Add the finishing touch with Umbra kitchen accessories.
3. REVIVE THE WALLS
A fresh coat of paint goes a long way. Instantly brighten your kitchen with white paint. Install a tiled backsplash for extra detail that adds a personal touch. Think outside the box, and consider including a chalkboard wall or shiplap. Don’t forget to replace old outlets and light switches.
4. INSTALL NEW LIGHTING
Illuminate your kitchen with new lighting. There are endless kitchen lighting options available to suit your style. Use a combination of recessed lighting, pendant lights and under-cabinet lighting. Complete the look with large statement island lighting.
5. UPGRADE YOUR STORAGE GAME
Consider installing open shelving, which will be cheaper than new cabinets. Floating wooden shelves can add a warm contemporary touch. Decorate your new shelving with kitchen gadgets, glassware or cookbooks.
