I am sure that most people, especially home-owners, can relate to what it’s like to get to the point where you are just plain tired of looking at the same old thing, your kitchen that is, everyday! 🙁 But, if you are one of those home-owners, it does not mean that tearing down your old kitchen and building it all anew is your only option.
Of course, it could be an option for those who can afford it, as well as you do not mind having to go through the process. However, for those who want a simpler way to improve their home, there are many simple yet powerful and budget-friendly ways to update its look. 😉
Ironically, when most people think of remodeling and redecorating a space in their home, they consider buying new expensive furniture, and new stylish home decor artifacts. Many people erroneously believe that making a large purchase is an absolute must in order to make any room look significantly different, but the truth is that spending a lot of money to remodel your home does not have to be the case, when you throw a little creativity in! 🙂
For example, your kitchen is something that can easily become an eye sore, quickly, just because you and your family members are constantly using the area. You may also find your kitchen becoming just too old- fashioned for modern time, and decide to upgrade it with a more contemporary style.
The good news is that there is no need to build a brand new kitchen from scratch. You can simply spruce up your existing space. For example, an easy way to add touch of modern style to your kitchen can be as easy as replacing the handles on your kitchen cabinets and drawers. This can give any room a completely different look, without causing too much fuss and without costing an arm and a leg. You really do not have to replace all the cabinets simply because cabinets stay in style much longer than the handles that they originally came with.
Another easy to do home improvement in the kitchen is to paint the walls. You can get away from the standard white that so many kitchens are painted in, and instead splash it with a touch of color. I dare say pink or yellow tones if it suits your personality! If you have dishes that have a design on them, you can even paint the kitchen to match the majority of your dishes, so you have a well thought out plan that integrates your existing kitchenware and kitchen decor.
A countertop in your kitchen may have seen many years of abuse, so if you are looking for a more involved kitchen remodeling project, then you should definitely consider replacing it. You can get one that is updated and matches your new paint job if that is what you want. You can also add a back splash area around the counter tops, which can change the looks of a kitchen dramatically.
If replacing your existing kitchen countertop seems a bit pricey, then consider a low cost DIY granite paint countertop resurfacing option.
Overall, the point here is to try to find a way to make some tasteful small kitchen improvements that are not going to cost you a lot, however, in return you are getting a kitchen that is going to fit your taste and personality far better than before. Those that visit your home will be able to notice that you made some very noticeable changes and may even think that you must’ve had hired a professional kitchen remodeling company to do the job.
