Many homeowners complete at least one major home renovation project at some point during their time in their home. Major projects, such as additions, gutting and redoing a room, adding a deck, and foundation work can be quite costly. There are other home improvement projects, such as kitchen remodels, that can be done at different budget levels. If you want to give your kitchen a new look without the big budget, here are a few tips to follow.
Freshen up Your Cabinets
Cabinets are one of the most expensive components of a kitchen remodel. Rather than tossing out perfectly good cabinets in favor of new ones, see if you can salvage the ones you have. If they’re in good condition but you don’t like the style, chances are you can give them a facelift and save yourself a lot of money. Take off the doors and opt to go for open shelving, which is a popular kitchen cabinet trend right now. You can also refinish them with a new coat of paint and hardware, which you can find in a variety of designs to give your cabinets a pop of personality. Making use of your existing cabinets can save you a lot of money and help the environment by reducing what goes into our landfills.
