Revamping a Kitchen on a Budget
Do you get dollar signs in your eyes when you think about revamping your kitchen? Of course, a full revamp may be costly but there are loads of cost effective changes you can make to give your kitchen a re-fresh. If you’re on a budget or only have a couple hundred dollars to spend – this blog is for you! Here are our tips and tricks for revamping a kitchen on a budget…
Put Up Some Art
A super easy way to re-fresh your kitchen on a budget is my adding some wall art. There are a lot of really sweet quotes and kitchen sayings you can dot around any empty wall space you have. Or if you want to go for a more artsy look – try a vintage poster.
Paint the Walls
Probably the most cost effective way to re-vamp your kitchen is by giving it a lick of paint. Generally kitchens aren’t too ‘wall heavy’ which means you don’t need much paint. A large tin of paint is around $100. So you could get away with a whole new look for only $100. Cut your cost down even further by painting it yourself. Keep it cool with a grey or light blue or make it pop with red, turquoise or green.
Paint the Cabinets
If you’d prefer not to paint the walls, or want to keep them neutral, paint the cabinets and/or island instead. It’s a great way to add some colour to your kitchen and isn’t a massive commitment if you decide you want to change it. This would also cost between $100 – $200 depending on how many cabinets you have to paint. Purchase some matching display items or crockery to complement the new cabinets.
Kitchen Pendant Lighting
If you’ve got an island bench – upgrade your lighting to pendant lights. Depending on the length of the island you could have three to four. Check out more kitchen lighting ideas here.
If you’ve got around $400 to spend you could add a mosaic splashback to your kitchen. It’ll not only add colour and re-fresh your kitchen but it will add interest too. Go for fun and colourful or glitsy grey depending on what sort of re-fresh you’re after.
