We recently updated our 1979 kitchen to a more modern version. Tackling a Kitchen Remodel can be a very expensive and a huge undertaking…but it doesn’t have to be. There are some things that you can do in varying price ranges that can make a big impact on the overall look and feel of your kitchen, updates that won’t break the bank.
1. Update Cabinets
If you have a bigger budget, take a look at your kitchen and see what needs to be updated. Are the cabinets still in pretty good shape? Maybe they just need to be refinished by sanding them and painting a fun fresh color or white for a more fresh and clean look. Also, having a cabinet shop refinish the doors and fronts is a lot cheaper than replacing the entire cabinet.
2. Updated Countertops
Do you need a new counter top? Does your counter date your kitchen and keep it stuck in the 1970’s? Think about getting a more affordable laminate counter top like this one from Wilsonart. It is amazing what Wilsonart is doing with laminate now a days. They have some beautiful counter tops that look just like the more expensive stones for a fraction of the cost.
3. Update Your Backsplash
Is your backsplash falling apart, losing grout or a strange color or pattern? Give your entire kitchen a new feel by simply updating the backsplash. You won’t believe the difference this small change can make. And with just a few tools and a little know how, you can change it yourself. There are all sorts of video tutorials out there to help you with the job. You can also rent a tile cutter pretty inexpensively to help get it done.
4. Add Some Texture
Add some moldings around windows, crown molding on the ceiling, or higher base moldings to add depth and dimension. Or add some planks to your ceiling or an accent wall for some interest and dimension in the room. We recently planked our kitchen ceiling and painted it white. I just LOVE the extra personality it adds to the room.
5. Update Kitchen Hardware and/or Faucet
It is amazing the difference it can make by just changing out your cabinet hardware. A nice faucet can update your look for a fairly inexpensive and quick change.
6. Change Light Fixtures
Spray paint an older, outdated light fixture a fun bright color. Or change it out all together with a more modern version. There are some really fun light fixtures out there that can bring a lot of personality into your kitchen. Add some brighter bulbs to brighten up your kitchen.
Using just one of the above tips, or a combination, you can freshen up your kitchen into something you will enjoy spending time with family and friends in. Be sure to check out Wilsonart for more great ways to update your kitchen.
