How To Revamp Your Kitchen On A Budget

From time to time things just need a little shake up, whether it’s something simple like a hairstyle or big like a new kitchen. But our budget doesn’t always cooperate with our aspirational visions, so today we’re giving you the guide on how to renovate your kitchen while sticking to a tight budget.

A Bit Of Paint Covers Up A Lot

Does your kitchen look small? Got cooking related stains on the walls? Just don’t like what colour your kitchen is? The first thing we can recommend would be a fresh lick of paint on the walls to brighten up the kitchen and make it look cleaner and more fresh. Bright colours will make the kitchen look larger but be aware that light colours will be easier to stain in a kitchen so maybe a neutral colour may be best.

Also when you’re getting your pain look out for kitchen specific paints that wont get stained from oil or steam, this will mean you can put off the next round of paint for a few years with more resistant paint, saving you money down the line.

 

Get A New Feature

When you’re doing your kitchen you’re going to need something to stand out and bring in the focus of the room. Of course this doesn’t have to be done expensively!

There are thousands of fun ways you can add a feature to your room on the cheap, how about a mice poster or canvas print by your table, paint your breakfast bar to make it the hub of your kitchen or a plastic splashback on your oven from Simply Plastics.

Keep The Core

Well this might sound counter intuitive for a guide on renovating a kitchen, but if all your appliances (cookers, fridge etc) are still in good condition and working keep them in your kitchen. There is no point throwing out a decent oven just to spend hundreds on a new one, it’s thinking like this that will keep your budget in balance. Obviously if you have the budget to accommodate a new appliance or you have one that needs replacing you should get one, but if your appliances are still working, why fix what isn’t broke?

So we say keep your appliances, save money on that to spend elsewhere & all you really need to do is give them a clean and maybe a fresh new paintjob to match your new kitchen!

In Conclusion

Okay after all this work you can have a brand new looking kitchen for less than £100! It sounds crazy I know but follow this guide and throw in a few personal touches here and there and it can be done.

Everyone has the right to have a great  looking kitchen in their home and today you just learned how to get yourself set up with your own wonderful kitchen to last years to come!
