The kitchen truly is the heart of the home. It’s where you gather to have meals, host parties for loved ones, help your little ones with their homework, and so much more. When the space begins to look a bit tired, therefore, sprucing it up is usually a high priority. Unfortunately, it can also cost a high price. Depending on your finances, you may not be able to spend a fortune on just one room. With that in mind, here are six ways to makeover your kitchen on a budget.
Paint The Cabinet Doors
When your cabinets are still in good condition, there are several ways to give them a new look. One of the cheapest is painting the doors. However, if you do plan to paint your cabinets, it’s important that you prime them first. If you don’t, the liquid can seep into the grain, ruining the finish. Switching the handles, though a small change, can also have a big impact on the room.
Create A Feature Wall
You may not have the money to makeover every wall in your kitchen, but, thankfully, just one is usually enough. Creating a feature wall will provide a focal point for the space, giving anyone who enters the room something to draw the eye. Using wallpaper allows you to experiment with different colour schemes and patterns. You just need to use wallpaper specifically for kitchens.
Buy A New Appliance
New appliances can refresh any space, without needing to change much else, including the furniture. If you don’t have enough cash in the budget to replace all of your appliances, then just choose one, like the washing machine. You can save money on this purchase by hunting for washing machine deals. Alternatively, you could replace a few of the smaller appliances.
Improve The Storage Space
It’s ridiculous how much stuff we can accumulate over the years. Unfortunately, much of this ends up in the kitchen, cluttering up the space and making it appear messy. To remedy this, you should set aside some time to clear out any junk and organise what is left over. When there isn’t enough storage space available, adding a new cabinet or some shelving can be beneficial.
Add A Few Accessories
Although most kitchens are a hotspot for chaos, others look incredibly bare. If yours sounds more like the latter, then you should add a few accessories here and there. Ornaments, jars, tins, candles, and more can all brighten up your space in an instant. To make the room look more put together, you should stick to a theme and arrange the accessories in groups.
Switch Up The Fabrics
From seat cushions and tablecloths to tea towels and blinds, our kitchens are jam-packed full of fabrics. No matter how well you take care of these items, they are bound to get worn and grubby over time. This means that buying new ones can be a positive change. Matching your fabrics to the colour scheme or theme of the room will create a polished look.
Making over your kitchen doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Hopefully, with the tips above, you can do it no matter what your budget.
