Kitchen is the space that usually gathers families together and it is one of the most used areas. That is why it is important to have a kitchen that can meet all your expectations as well as handle the busy traffic. The homeowners also want their kitchen to be aesthetically appealing.
It is true that some kitchen renovations can be overwhelming in terms of price but we will be talking about more budget friendly options that you can try to have the kitchen of your dreams. You can go over these suggestions to find the ones that suit your needs.
Choosing Right Countertops
If you have limited budget, it is smarter to focus on the renovation of countertops first. Of course, this depends on how weary, old or outdated your countertops are. If your priority is the countertops in your kitchen, you need to decide on the material. If you do not insist on natural stones, Quartz is one of the best choices in the market. It is a durable and modern engineered stone which is also cost effective. Since it is man-made, it can be produced according to the customers’ needs and preferences. Unlike natural stones, it does not include any pores. This ensures its durability and stain resistance.
If you want to have natural stone countertops then the most popular choices include granite, marble and quartzite. These are also very durable. Moreover, options can be found within different price ranges. The downside is that natural stones require a little more maintenance such as sealing.
Whatever you choose, your kitchen actually reflects a big part of who you are. Countertops are one of the most important aspects of kitchen remodeling. Asking to professionals—like our friends in Terra Granite—for guidance will make your job a lot easier.
Renewing the Hinges and Knobs
It is always the best to change the old and weary cabinets, but sometimes you may not have the necessary budget to do so. Then, you begin looking for more affordable options. If you cannot change the cabinets themselves, it is a good idea to focus on the smaller and removable parts of your cabinets. Changing the knobs as well as hinges and pulls would certainly make difference. You can replace them with trendier styles or simply paint it to more modern colors. And if you are not happy with the results, it is very easy to undo what you have done.
Painting Over What Can Be Painted
Nowadays, it is possible to paint over almost anything! If you are little crafty, you can even do it by yourself. All you need is some paint and brushes! You can paint the cabinets, tables or the chairs in your kitchen. In some cases, people tend to even paint their fridges! Painting the old furniture using some of the newest techniques can turn your old kitchen furniture into brand new ones. With paint, you can get different effects whether a vintage or a rustic look or a more modern or industrial look. You can choose the best one that fits your desire. The possibilities are almost endless.
The Importance of Backsplash
If you are not a fan of painting, then you can try adding different backsplash that will highlight the nicer features of your kitchen and add color. Backsplashes are mainly used to protect your walls from water, grease and other stains. Since there is a wide selection of backsplashes available, you can find a customize one that you desire.
Consider a Gallery Wall
If you are not artsy and have very limited budget then a final option would be a gallery wall where you can display a collage of different photos as well as art pieces and decorative objects together. It is a sure way to make your kitchen wall stand out. And the best part is that, it is actually cost effective. You can mix and match old and new, modern and vintage according to your kitchen’s decoration. It is a good idea to add color among the objects that you use, though.
Touch of Color
Another option for low budget is to add colorful details with textile. You can have colorful kitchen curtains or towels as well as a small rug (or rugs according to the size of the space). You can even include some pillows with different colors and designs that complement one another. It is always a good idea to go over some magazines or search on the internet for different ideas.
