The kitchen is easily the most expensive room in the house to remodel. Unfortunately in today’s economy, most of us don’t have the time or the money to do a full overhaul on our kitchens. However, interior design is full of clever decorating ideas on how to update your kitchen without spending a lot of time or money. Here are a few simple tips and tricks on how to update your kitchen without breaking the bank.
The truth is one common reason for remodeling existing kitchen designs is the lack of space or proper organization. However, you don’t need to purchase new cabinetry and install a new closet just to achieve a more functional kitchen.
There are a number of readily available ways to reorganize your kitchen from cabinet organizers to drawer organizers. You can also use wire baskets, large plastic storage containers and so forth. Organize your kitchen and you may feel a lot better about the entire space. While you’re at it, be sure to wipe down the insides of your cabinets. Organizing won’t feel complete if your kitchen isn’t cleaned up in the process!
Replace the Faucet
Faucets can become worn and dated quickly, so replacing a faucet can help boost the overall feel of existing kitchen designs. Plus, faucets today are now more stylish than ever thanks to a boom in the interior design industry and come a number of new features: LED lights for hot and cold, touch activation, digital temperature control and more. A new faucet might be the perfect solution for your space.
You don’t have to rip out your existing cabinets and install new ones just to update them. A fresh coat of paint and a new set of hardware can dramatically transform existing kitchen cabinets. Plus, when paired with a new wall color, new countertops or a new backsplash, the entire space can feel completely new.
Kitchen designs are a perfect place to start when trying to build sweat equity in your home. In today’s economy, it simply isn’t cost-effective for people to install entirely new kitchens and in many cases, it causes them to lose a lot of money if or when they decide to sell their home. Therefore, don’t be afraid to take the budget route and do minor updates and changes rather than overhauling the entire space. Interior designisn’t about the latest and greatest, it’s about what’s visually appealing to the homeowner and what works best for their needs, wants and of course, their budget.
