Kitchen trends move fast these days, and this can leave yours looking dated and dingy, especially if you compare them to all those lovely two- page spread in interior magazines! Oh, and don't even get me started on all those spaces on Instagram that are so on trend that it hurts! Of course, the solution here is to revamp your kitchen space to keep up with the fashions of the day, but this can cost a small fortune if you aren't careful. Although, you can save a pretty penny and still have a gorgeous kitchen by following the advice laid down below.
Takeaway Tips For Revamping Your Kitchen Space On A Budget!
An attractive kitchen revamp don't have to cost a fortune.
Paint your cabinets.
First of all, a great money saving tip that can change the look of your kitchen is to paint the cabinets you already have, instead of replacing them with new ones. After all, newly fitted kitchen cabinets are never cheap, and then you need to pay someone to come in and hang them for you too. Otherwise, you will end up with them all at strange angles, and it never looks quite right.
To paint your cabinets, take note of what they are coated in beforehand because if they have a heavy varnish or a plastic type coating, which many do, you will need to sand them down before they will take a new coat of color. Although, you can significantly reduce the effort associated with this by using a chalk paint which has better adhesion to non-absorbent surfaces.
Use high end finishes only in the most visible places.
Next, when it comes to revamping your kitchen without breaking the bank, you must be selective with the higher end pieces that you choose. In fact, you can make your kitchen space feel very refined by picking the most visible features to have the best finish. What that means is that granite countertops, cabinet handles, and a well-appointed stove the best use of your budget than insisting that every tile, tap, and spoon is designer.
Consider linoleum floors.
Last of all, when revamping your kitchen and trying to save money, why not consider linoleum floors. Yes, I know that everyone wants hardwood, stone or slate because these look the best, but did you know that you can get some great lino designs that look just like these too?
Of course, such flooring will cost you a fraction of the price, and probably be a lot better at keeping your kitchen floor warm as well, all without the cost of having to install underfloor heating. Something you will be glad of when you head down to your new kitchen for your first coffee in the morning!
