In a ‘new kitchen’ mood but don’t quite have the time or budget for a full re-do? We’ll show you how to scratch that itch and stay within budget with quick and easy kitchen updates. Sometimes your dream kitchen is the one you’re already living in! These ideas will transform your space into the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of, and best of all, they’ll have your holiday guests Ooohing and Ahhhing over your brand new kitchen — with no idea how quickly (and affordably) you got it done.
If you can’t afford a full new set, there are some quick and easy shortcuts that can make any set of existing cabinets look fresh and new. While brand new cabinets are incredibly affordable at Cabinets To Go, there are still many homeowners out there who don’t want to buy right now. Maybe they still need to save or it’s not a good time to tear down their kitchen — either way, all they need is a little update to tide them over until they’re ready. That’s where these cabinet makeovers come into play.
Free to Cheap (<$100)
Get it done in just one weekend.
The kitchen is a fantastic canvas for expressing yourself, and it’s one of the easiest rooms to completely overhaul when it comes to decor. That makes it a perfect blank slate that you can wipe clean whenever you’re in need of a refresh. In fact, a simple change of decor in the right places can make the entire space feel like a new place.
Super Cheap (<$50) to Affordable (<$500)
Lightspeed. All it takes is the time to shop.
While we love updating cabinets, this idea takes the focus away from them for a bit. Many times the thing that makes a kitchen feel outdated are the fixtures, like sink faucets, lighting, and appliances. Luckily, those things are also an easy update! No demoing, no mess, and usually no fuss. The hardest part is picking out new ones (which tends to be more fun than hard, anyway).
Affordable (<$500) to Worth It ($1500)
Still quick. Though it could take a week or two to pull together, it’s still so worth it.
Out with the old, in with the new! How will you update your kitchen?
