Who doesn’t want a new kitchen? But who has the money for a complete remodel? There are many quick and easy fixes that can help you to update your space and not break the bank…or have to hire a contractor.
1. A Whisk that Works
Have a mangled whisk? A melted spatula? A mismatched set of knives? Why not toss all of those ugly odds and ends and upgrade your kitchen utensils. A nice new set of knives or a matched set of stainless-steel-handled kitchen utensils can make your room look more like a place were fine cuisine is prepared and less like a dorm room studio kitchen. And while you are at it, why not display them in a new way? A simple stainless canister or an antique-looking ceramic pitcher to store your spoons and scrapers can both update the look of your room and convey your particular style.
2. Momma’s Got a Brand New Toaster
A pop of color or the sleek lines of stainless steel can give your kitchen a great new look. One easy way to get this is by upgrading your appliances, both small and large. If you have the budget, all new large appliances can make your kitchen fresh and clean. A new stainless steel fridge and range can make your room look like a professional kitchen while at the same time offer lots of modern features and energy efficient updates. Many small appliance collections are available in a variety of matching colors. A bright red toaster can make you some toast and look good doing it.
3. I Can Handle That
You grab them and hold them every day, but have you ever thought about the visual impact that your kitchen cabinet handles and drawer pulls have on the overall look of your kitchen? If your knobs are outdated or maybe even broken and missing this might be just the upgrade your kitchen needs. Major home improvement stores have many to choose from and there are also specialty stores with so many choices you are sure to find one that fits your style. The prices can vary greatly, but it is surely a fix that can be done on a budget and with nothing more than your trusted Phillips-head screwdriver.
4. Throw in the Towel
Sure, you know that those stains on your kitchen towel are old. You know that it just came out of the wash. But do your guests? You may not have thought of it for a while, but it might be time to retire Aunt Gertie’s old towels and update your kitchen linens. A contemporary (unstained) set of kitchen towels and complementary oven mitts and potholders can tie your kitchen together.
5. Thinking Big on a Little Budget
If you are looking to do a bit more than update your kitchen knick knacks but still aren’t prepared to bring in a remodeling crew then maybe a can of paint is just the thing for you. Nothing changes the look and feel of a room more than a fresh coat of paint. With a little degreaser to prep your cabinets walls and a little elbow grease to paint them you can have a whole new kitchen with a whole lot of money still in your bank account.
Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint or a new blender, an updated kitchen is completely within your reach and your budget.
