Posted By on Jan 19, 2010 | 0 comments


If you’re trying to remodel your kitchen but are on a budget, we have some great alternatives for you.

The first option would be to paint! You can start by painting your cabinets. Yes, even wood cabinets can be painted! You will be amazed at how something so simple can make a difference. You can even paint vinyl flooring and laminate countertops to look like wood, marble, or granite with the use of a high-quality primer, and don’t forget to cover with at least for coats of polyurethane.

Another way to update your kitchen is to simply replace cabinet handles and drawer pulls. These small accessories will give a fresh look to your existing cabinets. They’re also not the only thing that can be replaced in your kitchen. Faucets are also an easy way to enhance the look of your kitchens without spending too much. A stainless steel faucet can work wonders!

Another great way to upgrade your kitchen at a low cost is to add a backsplash. You will be amazed how new life is added to your old design. Colorful, glass mosaic tiles can create a very dramatic look.

Upgrading your kitchen floor is critical to the overall look and feel of the room. A couple of ideas would be to extend the hardwood from the hallway into the kitchen or add a black and white linoleum floor with red knobs and accessories throughout the rest of your kitchen for a pop of color. That is sure to turn your kitchen from dull and drab to dramatic and daring! If you decide against painting or replacing your floor, throw rugs are a great and inexpensive alternative to change the look of your floor.

Last, but not least, is the lighting. Glass cabinet doors with interior lighting creates a beautiful effect in any kitchen. You can also change overhead fixtures or put a lamp on your counter. This extra lighting will certainly enhance the look and mood of your kitchen.

These are just a few, inexpensive suggestions that can turn your outdated kitchen to one of the most creative rooms in your home.
