Investing in your kitchen is always a good idea. The kitchen is a very central area – a place where people quickly grab food from the fridge but also sit down for dinners, gather for events, and make endless memories. Everyone has their own preference as to what their dream kitchen looks like, which is not always affordable. If you are itching to change up the look of your kitchen but do not have the funds for a full remodel, there is good news! There are a lot of small upgrades that you can make in your kitchen that will slowly and surely add up to a full remodel and the kitchen you have always wanted. Here are a few tips on how you can slowly spruce up your kitchen on a budget:
- Repainting is a great way to change up the vibe of the room and make it look good as new. Not to mention, you can even do it yourself! You can not only repaint the walls, but also repaint your cabinets, which will give an entirely new theme to the kitchen.
- Upgrade your hardware. Your hardware in your kitchen may be a bit outdated, which means it is the perfect time to upgrade it to make it look more modern and refreshed. Figure out exactly how many pulls and knobs you will need for your cabinet hardware, and then you can begin to explore different materials such as bronze, stainless steel, marble or solid brass!
- Update your lighting. There are a lot of ways to get creative with lighting. You can even install lighting underneath your cabinets for an extra touch. Explore some different options for wall lights, recessed lights or surface lights, depending on what is best for your specific room.
- Install open shelving. A great way to not only create more storage for your kitchen, but also add to empty wall space, is to install open shelving. The shelves will be great to hold beautiful glassware, plates, or even your favorite cookbooks!
