Update your kitchen

It’s not always easy to know what to do when you have a limited budget and want to update your kitchen. We have some great ideas here:

New Floors

Laminate flooring in a kitchen will instantly update the look of an old, tired kitchen. Installing laminate flooring is actually fairly simple, and there are only a few tools required which can be rented at any local box hardware store.

Update Cabinets

Sure new cabinets would look great, but they’re expensive and can easily break a budget. Updating old cupboards can come in a variety of ways, and with a little elbow grease, the results are almost as nice as new cupboards. For the look of new cupboards, consider ordering new drawer faces and cupboard doors or painting the entire cupboards. By adding little touches like molding, glass inserts, beading, or other decorative elements, the update is even more complete.

New Countertops

New countertops can be pricey, but they are one big renovation that is instantly obvious and can improve the overall look of a kitchen. It’s typically best to leave the installation to the professionals, but it’s possible to save money by removing the old countertops and not paying for this additional step. And even more, money can be saved by buying the countertop from a salvage shop.

Install a Backsplash

Installing a backsplash is not as difficult as some people imagine and the kits designed to help with the process really ease the work. A tile backsplash adds a great decorative element, a colorful focal point, and an upscale touch of class.

Storage and Organization

Try to incorporate as much storage as possible, so kitchen accessories are hidden from view. Keeping the kitchen organized and using creative storage solutions space will look much better. The more creative sorts will come up with DIY storage solutions that will not only hide clutter but boost the entire appeal of the kitchen.
