How to Revamp your Kitchen on a Budget

Revamping a kitchen can give it a completely new look; it can update it and make it look more stylish. But updating a kitchen is not cheap, particularly if you need new appliances or any repairs done. There are ways to revamp your kitchen on a budget.

Before you tackle redecorating the kitchen, you should clean it thoroughly. This will show you the worst areas and you will be better able to see what needs to be done.

Adding a new coat of emulsion to the walls might not seem like a big deal, but it can really make a difference to the look and feel of your kitchen. It will make the walls look fresher, cleaner and it will also make it look as though you have redecorated when in fact all you have done is add some paint of the same colour to the walls. If your walls are tired and faded, then adding a coat of colour will make them pop.

Choosing a feature wall and adding wallpaper to it can really make a kitchen look classy. Choose paper that coordinates with your walls and appliances, and add it to one wall. You can use normal wallpaper, but paper that has been designed for use in kitchens will last much longer.

Painting or glossing your cabinets will really make them stand out; paint them in colours that match the wallpaper or paint. Gloss cupboards that are near ovens or sinks to help protect them and keep them clean.

Old, plain tiles can be made to look like new by creating designer ones with the use of tile stickers. Add them to the centre of tiles for a stylish look at a bargain price.

The kitchen floor can very quickly become faded, dirty and unpleasant. You can revamp your kitchen by adding a new floor, laminate flooring and self adhesive tiles can give your floor a whole new look for a very reasonable price. Avoid carpets in kitchens because they pick up so many bad smells and stains.

Buy some new accessories for the kitchen. This does not mean you have to bear the expense of a new oven; it can simply mean buying a couple of new vases or some wall art. Small changes can make a big difference to the look of the kitchen. A matching kettle and toaster will not cost a lot of money, but it will make the room look more stylish.

Look in bargain or thrift stores for a new table; you can find tables for a great price if you look in the right place and a new table will lift the whole room.

Revamping the kitchen on a budget can be a great challenge. It will give you the chance to see that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get an entirely new looking room.
