Redecorate the Kitchen on Shoestring Budget

Redecorate the Kitchen on a Shoestring

Even if you aren’t planning on selling your home in the near future, updating your kitchen can make the whole house feel like new. Now, we aren’t recommending a complete remodel (unless of course you have the budget for that), but freshening it up will not only make the kitchen a more pleasant space to work in but it will give a bit of a punch to your home’s value as well.

Paint can Transform any Room

Paint is a bit of a miracle product; it makes rooms feel cleaner and, depending on the color, can even make the kitchen look larger. Of course the color you choose will be the foundation around which you build the rest of the room’s color scheme, so if you’re considering selling you’ll want to go with more neutral colors.

Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer is a fun tool that will help you decide on wall colors, allowing you to actually visualize the paint color before it’s applied to the walls.

Freshen up the Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets are easy to work magic on, either by refinishing or painting them. Then, choose new hardware to give them a fresh new look.

The big box home improvement stores offer the DIY kitchen makeover artist a dazzling array of cabinet hardware in finishes from hand-forged pewter to ceramic to brass.

 

The Final Touch: Accessories

Kitchen accessories tie all of your hard work together into a cohesive whole, whether they are cosmetic or practical. The former includes artwork, rugs and window coverings, while the latter includes new lighting and fixtures. Again, home improvement stores offer a wide choice of faucets and lighting to make your kitchen gorgeous.
