Inexpensive Kitchen Renovation Ideas

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 17, 2012

It is hard to commit to kitchen remodeling if you are afraid that after a few years you may not love  the changes anymore.  Significant kitchen renovations – like cabinets and countertops, flooring and fixtures – require you to live with them for a long time.

With even minor kitchen renovations costing taking a bite out of your wallet, you may be hesitant to spend 10’s of 1000’s on a kitchen redesign. The good news is you don’t need a complete renovation in order to update your kitchen.
Here are some easy, cost-effective projects that can give the kitchen a whole new look:

Backsplashes can be both practical and beautiful, and they can really change the look and style of your kitchen.

Replacing cabinetry can be cost-prohibitive. Plus it’s an expensive tough job to tackle. Fortunately, there are easier ways to update the look of your cabinets. Switching out dated hardware with something new and eye-catching is a great start. Wooden cabinets can be repainted or stained. Outdated trim can be removed. Or, if you love the open-faced look that’s in vogue in many upscale kitchens, simply remove cabinet doors altogether and have your cabinets refaced.

When it comes to window treatments, most people have two objectives: to create a great look and protect their privacy. The kitchen, however, is one room where privacy is usually less of a concern. That means you can lighten up on window treatments, open your design options and create a light-filled look.

Angie's List of Kitchen Renovations

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Not only is an outdated kitchen unattractive, but it can also make cooking challenging. Unfortunately, kitchen remodeling is one of the most expensive home improvement projects.

There are some ways that homeowners can update their kitchens without breaking the bank. These updates can lead to a more attractive kitchen that is also more pleasant for cooking and entertaining:

Angie's List tips: Simple kitchen updates

Remodel kitchen cabinets and shelves: Obtaining a completely new set of cabinets can be very expensive, but homeowners can hire a kitchen remodeling contractor to update, not replace, the cabinets inexpensively. Some common updates include adding slide-out shelves, lazy susans, drawers and new hardware, refinishing or refacing the cabinets. Painting or refacing cabinets is an aesthetically pleasing idea.

Install a new countertop: new countertop installation can take place in a single day, so homeowners may be able to find a contractor who will charge a reasonable rate for this upgrade. Corian or Granite countertops or some other material change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.

Update the faucets: A new kitchen faucet is a small addition, but it can change the look of a kitchen, making it appear more modern or refined.

Install new lighting: Lights that are too bright can give the kitchen a glaring, unfriendly look. Light that is too soft can make it hard to work. However, homeowners may want to consider installing several types of lights, in various places.

Add a garbage disposal or trash compactor: These appliances are relatively inexpensive and can be installed by most home builders. However, they can go a long way in making a kitchen more modern and practical.
