November is here and now you are planning the holiday parties. This means you'll be spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Maybe you are wishing that did the kitchen remodeling project. But a large scale kitchen remodel can be wildly expensive. You can have a kitchen facelift before the holidays. How?
Angie’s List has five simple kitchen updates to help cut down on those remodeling costs.
1. Remodel kitchen cabinets and shelves: Obtaining a completely new set of cabinets can be very expensive, but a good way to save money is to remodel the cabinets and shelves, and paint or reface the cabinets. Homeowners can hire a kitchen remodeling contractor to update, not replace, cabinets and shelves inexpensively. Painting or refacing the outside of the cabinets is an aesthetically pleasing idea.
2. Install new countertops: installing a new granite countertop, or some other updated counter top really changes the look and feel of a kitchen.
3. 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.
4. 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. You may want to consider installing several types of lights, including a light over the sink, over the stove, and perhaps a chandelier or wall sconce.
5. 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.
