A standard basic kitchen upgrade would cost you a whole lot of cash. It should cost between $20,000 to $50,000.
However, upgrading your kitchen in an amazing way is not dependent on how much you can spend. It is more dependent on how innovative you can be.
Yes! That statement applies to old and new kitchens alike.
If you’ve been thinking of how to go about a kitchen upgrade, this article has come to your rescue; giving you loads of innovative ways to achieve your aim.
Here Are Some of Them:
Repaint Your Cabinets.
The process could begin with a simple paint job that you could do yourself. Giving your cabinet a few strokes of paint would make your kitchen look more majestic.
You can add personality to it by adding color. There are so many colors that you can choose to go with. The only limit to this is your creativity!
Make Use of Patterns
It could be as simple as vintage-inspired rug or lush floral wallpaper. This would make your kitchen (whether big or small) be more personal. You can mix things up if you want by trying both ideas simultaneously. The only thing you should be concerned about is having a mismatch of colors. Hence, it would be safe if you look for patterns that have a linking color between them.
Consider layering textures to work together and create an aesthetic look for your kitchen. The kitchenware should match the overall designs especially if you are designing an open-plan kitchen visible from the dining and a living area of your house. Create a contrast using Shop Viva tea sets in neutral colors if your countertops are painted bright, making them look more elegant and modish.
Change Your Lighting.
Pendant lights can be a great introduction to your kitchen. You can think of them as jewelry for your kitchen. They can either stand out and be the focal point of your kitchen or be the thing that fuses all the designs in your kitchen.
Upgrade your accessories/hardware.
Once all the aesthetics are taken care of, you can now easily deal with the things that actually help you cook or help in inspiring the cooking atmosphere. For instance, a portable a/c window kit can just be what you need to chill the atmosphere in your kitchen.
You can change that blender or dish washer by selling it in yard sale and using your proceeds to get new ones. In fact, you can find a perfect replacement at a yard sale! You really do not have to splurge.
Add Color With Stools.
This is a creative option if you have an all-white or all-black kitchen. Standard stools are often sold in sets and are very expensive. You can create that rainbow effect by using different colors of stools.
Use Plates As Wall Decor
Who says they only have to be utensils? You can use your creativity to do this at little or no cost at all. All you need are plates and removable strips or plate hangers. You can also incite the rainbow effect by mixing colors up in an all-white kitchen.
Paint Your Kitchen Walls
Transform the look of your kitchen with a paint job. Nothing changes the look of a room better than a brush and a few splashes of paint. The nice thing about this is that you can choose a single shade or a rainbow themed paint job based on your creative discretion.
Paint The Floor
This can help rejuvenate wood floors that are not in the best shape and add that extra touch of finesse to the overall design of your kitchen. White is a great option, but blue and pale are some other classic options. You can be creative by stenciling a design on the painted floors.
You do not have to break the bank before you make upgrades to your kitchen. The little things always make a difference. It could be as simple as a paint job that you can do yourself!
In fact, it would be more cost effective to go DIY. If you ask me, I don’t think there’s anything more fulfilling than cooking in a kitchen you renovated yourself.
