Few rooms of your home are used as much as your kitchen. The kitchen is where your family gathers at the end of a busy day, where you enjoy your favorite foods and where plenty of bonding time occurs.
However, it can be challenging to spend time in the kitchen if your space is in desperate need of a remodel. Some homeowners think that a new kitchen is out of reach because of their tight budgets, but you can enjoy a new look without spending a fortune by keeping these tips in mind.
Determine Your Priorities
When you are working with a limited budget, it’s especially important to determine your priorities before you start a remodeling project. Sure, it would be fun to gut the kitchen and purchase everything brand new, but this makes the dollars add up quickly.
If you want to make the biggest impact for the least amount of cash, write down your top concerns about your kitchen. If you love to cook gourmet meals, replacing your temperamental oven with a top of the line appliance might be your top priority. If your kitchen feels cluttered because your cabinets are not maximizing your space, you might choose to spend the majority of your funds purchasing new cabinets.
Repair Instead of Replacing
One of the biggest ways you can save money is by repairing or updating items when possible instead of replacing them. If your current kitchen cabinets look dated, that doesn’t mean you have to tear them out and start over. If the cabinets are still in good condition, consider having them resurfaced, stained or painted. This can be done for a fraction of the cost, and your cabinets will look brand new!
Unsightly flooring and backsplashes can really detract from the beauty of a kitchen. However, purchasing new tiles might not fit into your budget. Fortunately, Gulf Coast Tile & Grout offers a wide range of cleaning and repair options. You might be surprised to find out how different your tile will look after a thorough professional cleaning and grout renewal!
Don’t Underestimate Small Improvements
Finally, you can stick with your budget by remembering that small improvements can make a big difference. Whether you’re paying to have a few cracked tiles repaired in your flooring or adding a new kitchen faucet, small changes can have a huge impact.
You can freshen up your current cabinets and drawers by adding new knobs and drawer pulls. These items can be purchased inexpensively at your local hardware store, and they can be installed in just a few minutes. Tasteful bronze drawer pulls or shiny silver knobs add some fresh style to your space for a small investment.
