Budget Conscious Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

White kitchen design.While many of us would love to revamp our entire kitchen, sometimes that is not feasible. But there are ways to update your kitchen with some minor improvements that carry a lot of bang for your buck. Plus, most small projects you take on in your kitchen can be completed on your own, saving you even more money—and giving you bragging rights!

New paint. One quick way to update your kitchen is by giving it a new coat of paint. Choosing a new color for the space can update the look of the kitchen and give it a whole new feel. Plus, if you paint the walls yourself, the project should only run you about $100. Depending on your skill with a paint brush, the job completion time will vary, but it is certainly something a DIY’er can tackle with some spare time on the weekend.

New knobs. Another inexpensive and efficient kitchen remodeling idea to undertake is replacing the knobs or handles on your drawers and cabinets. There are hundreds of options to choose from, giving you ample selection to suit your personal style and decor. They also come in a variety of metals, finishes, and colors to make them as customizable as you would like. Each type will vary in cost, but with a tight budget, you can find some as inexpensive as $2.00 a piece. Plus, most only require a screw to attach them to the drawer or cabinet, making this job the perfect DIY project.

New backsplash. One other idea, if you have a bit more handy bones in your bod, would be to consider adding a backsplash on the wall behind your sink or other small wall areas. It brings texture and color to the kitchen that is hard to add in other places. Some backsplashes can simply be glued to the wall or you can use tiles and grout, which will take longer to install but look gorgeous when you are finished. You will want to set aside a weekend for this job but being an expert in laying tile is far from necessary.

With these few inexpensive, yet remarkably transforming changes, your kitchen will begin to feel new and updated in no time. Even if the full remodel of your dreams is not within reach, you can begin to chip away at some of the improvements on your own and still achieve the look you desire. Hopefully, these simple kitchen remodeling ideas start you down the path to the update you’ve been dreaming about.
