5 Cheap Kitchen Updates

5-Cheap-Kitchen-UpdatesMany of us would love a new kitchen, but a new kitchen isn’t cheap. The good news is there are cheap updates you can make to improve your kitchen, which makes it new to you! Whether it’s a simple coat of paint or hiding your ugly appliances, you can love your kitchen without spending a fortune. Here are some suggestions to start with:

  1. Paint – A new coat of paint on the walls and even the cabinets can make a huge difference. Don’t be afraid to try a bold color! For example, paint the walls a spring green or green apple color and paint your cabinets white so that they pop. You can even spray paint old hardware to give it a new look. This update will cost well under a hundred dollars, but make it feel fresh and new.
  2. Add a backsplash – If you have a small space that needs a backsplash, you can invest in gorgeous tile and spend very little. If you have a large space to cover, you can get a peel and stick backsplash that looks gorgeous but costs very little. The exact cost of this update will depend on the size of your kitchen and the products chosen, but you should be able to do it affordably in either case.
  3. Install a new faucet – Another quick, cheap fix is to install a new faucet. First things first. You need to determine the type of faucet you need. This is based on the sink in your kitchen. You’ll need to check whether it has two or three holes, whether your current sink comes with a soap dispenser and a few other details. New sink faucets can be purchased for as little as $20, but you’ll need to spend a bit more than that to get an updated look. If you’re not very handy (I’m not!), you might want to ask someone at a store like Home Depot to help guide you. Bring a few pictures of your current sink and they should be able to help you buy the best sink for you.
  4. Update accessories – Sometimes all it takes to update your kitchen is to change out the accessories. This includes towels, curtains, storage canisters, cutting boards, knife blocks, etc. You can find great deals online or at your local big box stores. Choose your new color scheme and start looking for the best deals. Remember that you can’t go wrong with natural wood accessories along with a pop of color!
  5. Hide ugly appliances – Last, but not least, you can hide those old appliances with a stainless steel colored appliance cover. It works like shelf paper, but makes your appliances look like stainless steel! It can be used on refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, and microwaves. It does take some patience to apply, but you’ll be thrilled with the results. If you don’t want to go that route, another (easier) option is to purchase appliance paint. Whichever way you go, the change will be a nice one for you.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on kitchen updates. Whether you add a backsplash or update your accessories, you can get a new look for well within a reasonable budget. If you don’t have the money for everything, start with one and save for the next. You might find that one is all you need! Have more suggestions? Let me know!
