Affordable Kitchen Makeover Ideas
Could you imagine what you would do with a kitchen fit for royalty? It would only be fair to have royal feasts for your family, right? Too bad this kitchen exists only in your dream and that pitiful average looking kitchen with the peeling backlash is staring back at you waiting to be put out of its misery. Fear not! There is a way to have a kitchen fit for royalty without dreaming.
Hire a Design Planner
You have a tight budget, but make sure it is not so tight that you cannot hire a professional to design a plan for your new kitchen. It may seem ridiculous to hire a designer when you are doing all the leg work, but trust us on this- it will help you in the long run so that you can avoid huge errors.
Shabby Chic Cabinets
The first thing most people do when they think of a kitchen remodel is new cabinets. If you can't seem to justify getting completely new cabinets, that’s totally okay! Shabby chic is an easy project that will give your kitchen a modern update. You will need to remove the wood finish and apply a water base acrylic primer to begin. From here, two coats of paint are needed. Once you apply the second coat of paint, scrape it off with a steel wool cloth to give it the distressed look. Finally, add a good wax furniture polish to seal the deal.
Granite or Bust
Granite is the hottest (as well as an expensive) trend for kitchen remodels. Many turn-key homes now come with granite countertops. Let’s say you don’t have granite yet; you are nearing the budget limit and your spouse is beginning to sweat blood over this remodel. Fear not! You do not need a complete new countertop to complete your makeover. Resurfacing your countertop is a common practice and is a fraction of the cost of having a new one installed. Use ceramic tiles of different colors to create a mosaic look. You can also sand it down completely and lay some grout to give it the minimalist cement look.
Hiring a planner is a must if you are doing anything more than cabinets and countertops, but those are the go-to changes that people look for in a home remodel. Soon your dream of a kitchen in a castle won’t be such a dream after all.
