Renovating a kitchen can be time consuming and costly but there are always ways to update your kitchen without breaking the bank. If you want to completely renovate your kitchen then contact the expert home kitchen remodeling company, but here are a few tips to update your kitchen on your own:
Countertops – Your countertops can completely change the look of your kitchen. This task doesn’t have to be daunting and it can be done relatively quickly. Strip off your laminate and replace it with an updated laminate or have your stone, cement, or marble counters buffed so they shines like new again. Not only can you replace the laminate but you can also replace the molding around your countertop or just replace a section of your countertop like adding a chopping block to give new life to your countertop. One part of the counter that not everyone thinks of is the backsplash. By adding or replacing your backsplash it can add a whole new personality to your kitchen. Use your imagination and creativity to update your backsplash because the materials and ideas are endless.
Cabinets – Your cabinets help create the overall look and feel of your kitchen so updating them can really change your kitchen’s style. Some kitchen cabinet ideas would be replacing your hardware like knobs, pulls, and hinges, putting a fresh coat of paint on your cabinets or refinishing metal cabinets, put a new face on your doors and drawers to add a new style, replace the panels in your doors (wood styling, glass, steel, etc.) and drawers to update the look, upgrade your molding, or update the inside of your cabinets by replacing the shelves, or add new additions like sections or Lazy Susans.
Floors – Replacing or updating your flooring can be a great do-it-yourself project. If you have some carpet you can pull it up and replace it with hardwood floors, update the stain or add a new finish to your hardwood floors, add new trim or borders, replace the flooring with stone, ceramic, or colored tiles, refinish your stone floors to add more shine, paint your wood floor, add vinyl tiles or vinyl sheeting, or even spruce up your current floor with new rugs.
Appliances – Replacing all of your appliances can be very costly so just spruce up your appliances with new accessories. A lot of appliances have options for replacing the face, hardware, handles/knobs, surfaces and shelves or interior pieces. Check your appliance company’s website or catalogs to see what options are available. If you have older or high-end appliances that just need a touch up you can have the appliance buffed, refinished, painted or recovered to add a new “face” to your appliances. Do some research on companies with experience in the material your appliance is made of to ensure your makeover is done correctly.
All of these ideas can be completed with time and inspiration so make sure to visit your local hardware store for guidance if you want to do this yourself. If you are leery about doing all of this yourself then contact your expert home remodelers for help. A kitchen renovation could boost the resale value of your home whether it be a full renovation or just a fresh coat of paint so explore your options.
