If you’re tired of the look of your kitchen, there are many great DIY Budget-Friendly Kitchen Remodeling Tips that you can try. Here are some to get you started.
A little bit of paint will go a long ways. You can repaint cupboards, walls, or simply paint one wall as an accent wall. You will draw attention to the one wall without having to do a whole lot of work.
Most kitchens have windows. If you update the window treatments it will make the kitchen look new and sparkle. Make some curtains or buy some but try that for a do it yourself project. You could also install shutters or faux shutters to give your kitchen an entirely new look.
Those old fixtures are annoying and detract from the appearance in your kitchen. Installing new fixtures is quick and easy and can give your kitchen an entirely new appearance. It only takes about half an hour and your kitchen will look much better.
Drawers and cupboards often have handles on them or knobs. Try getting some new ones or even (if you’re adventurous) painting the old ones. It’s amazing what new handles on the drawers and cupboards can do for the appearance of your kitchen.
There are many inexpensive types of linoleum on the market today. Go to your favorite flooring store and ask to see some linoleum. You may find that they have some special discounts on a stock that wasn’t moving or on remnants. It doesn’t take long to install and it will make an amazing difference in your kitchen.
Hang A Pot Rack
If you can’t find an affordable pot rack, create your own. An old ladder from bunk beds, or simply find a wire rack that could work as a pot rack. Install this near the cookstove and you’ll have a new look, more storage, and a great designer pot rack for your kitchen. It will give it an entirely new appearance.
Add in a new backsplash near the sink, by the stove, or both. There are a variety of great backsplashes on the market today. Choose a tin tile, a brick look, or something totally unique. It’s all up to you and what you might have on hand. Old leftover tiles, old bricks, or even a wallpaper of faux brick or tile will work well as a great backsplash.
Install a few shelves and some plants that love the light and bring in the outdoors. Airplane plants (aka spider plants) or aloe vera all work well to purify the air and bring the outdoors into the kitchen.
Get new hand towels and dishcloths and get rid of those old ones that are less than whole. Combined with some of the above ideas these will give the kitchen a brighter and nicer appearance.
Utilize Wall Space
Hang a wire partway up a wall and use that to hang utensils on and lighter weight pots and pans. This can declutter the counter and give the kitchen a neater and tidier appearance.
Switch out the lighting. Swap out one style of lighting for another. Put a focal point in the kitchen and a spotlight over the focal point.
Incorporating the various ideas above into the DIY kitchen remodel will go far in making the kitchen appear newer. Mix and match the ideas for a truly unique and one of a kind look that transcends time. Most of the ideas are easy to do yourself and all of them are fairly inexpensive. Your kitchen will look great.
