Dreaming of a new kitchen, but don’t have $19,000 (the average price of a kitchen remodel) to spend on one? Don’t sweat it; you can still achieve a fresh look without breaking the bank. Here are a few low-cost ways to revive your kitchen, courtesy of the experts at 5-Day Kitchens of Pueblo.
Upgrade your hardware.
Adding new hardware, such as handles and hinges, it a subtle way to spruce up the look of any kitchen. In fact, this small swap can improve the appearance of your entire cabinets for less than $10 a piece. Always opt for traditional-looking hardware over gimmicky pieces (such as animals), which can get old fast.
Remove upper cabinet doors.
If glass cabinet doors are out of your budget, but you still want a more open look, consider removing the doors on your upper cabinets altogether. It’s quick, easy, almost free (just have to fill and paint the holes), and can make your kitchen feel that much more spacious.
Add new accessories.
Sometimes the little things can make the biggest difference; this is definitely true when it comes to refreshing your kitchen. Adding simple pieces of art, wicker baskets, wood cutting boards, or colorful small appliances can really bring a room together without requiring a ton of money.
Install a backsplash.
Backsplashes don’t cover a lot of space in the kitchen, making them a relatively cheap investment. What they lack in square footage, they make up for in flair. Finding and installing the right backsplash is a surefire way to make your kitchen pop!
