Kimberly Duran, the award-winning interior design blogger at Swoon Worthy, shares her tips for keeping your kitchen renovation on a budget.
Whether you are looking for a quick and easy way to give your kitchen a refresh or planning a major renovation, you’re probably concerned about escalating costs. Here are 10 clever kitchen renovation ideas to keep you on trend and on a budget:
1 – Tile Stickers
If your backsplash is in good shape but you aren’t impressed with the colour or style, consider using tile stickers to cover them. These are perfect for those who just want to add a splash of colour or pattern. You’ll find a huge selection on Etsy.
2 – Paint Your Tiles
You can also consider painting tiles with specialist paint to give outdated tiles a new lease on life. This simple update could be completed in a single weekend for an instant style fix.
3 – Swap out the handles
If your cupboard doors are still in good shape, consider just swapping out the handles to give them a quick and easy update.
4 – Paint Your Cupboard doors
In our own kitchen remodel, we saved money by keeping the existing cupboard doors and repainted them in black satin paint. Ensure you use the right primer for the most professional finish!
5 – Use Open Shelving
We also saved money by incorporating open shelving on one full wall of our kitchen. While this look may not be for everyone, it is cheaper than using standard cabinets and you can create a lovely display with all your favourite dishes and glasses.
