While it may be tempting to spend lots of money into your next kitchen update, you don’t actually have to spend a fortune to get a great result. The truth is, more and more designers are showing homeowners that you can accomplish big changes with minimal swaps – or by selecting curated upgrades instead of ripping out and redoing your entire room.
Here are a handful of tips for remodeling your kitchen on a budget:
Refinish, Resurface, Reface
You’ve heard of reduce, reuse, recycle, right? Well, in the world of kitchen remodeling, the phrase is refinish, resurface, reface. That’s because contractors know that if you want a big impact on a small budget, you can accomplish it by buffing out scratches and smoothing out surfaces with fresh coats of paint or stains to achieve a brand-new look at a fraction of the cost.
Say you have perfectly functional kitchen cabinets. You like the shape of them, their size and depth – but you aren’t in love with the overall look of them. Don’t trash those cabinets! Save them by having your contractor help you resurface or refinish them. Strip them of unattractive paint and repaint or stain them for cabinets that look bold and new – but at a price that is as comfortable as your familiar fixtures.
Choose an Element to Upgrade
When you only have a certain amount of money to work with, it pays to know how to make the maximum impact with that budget. For those remodeling a kitchen, consider upgrading an element beyond refacing your cabinets. Small changes, like upgrading a backsplash, can have a major impact on the way the room looks and feels – without a major impact on your bank account.
