Home remodeling shows seem to give a lot of people unrealistic expectations on what it takes to remodel parts of the home. The added drama, making small problems seem much worth than they are, and the fact that to refinish a space, everything needs to be new. This isn’t always true. There are plenty of ways to update a space, build some sweat equity, and not pay an arm and a leg for it.
Update your countertop.
While stone countertops are the most durable, there are many cheaper temporary options to update a countertop until you are ready for a full remodel. Some temporary options include countertop paint and epoxy kits.
Backsplashes can really add a good amount of pizzazz to a kitchen! Whether you want to go all out, or go a cheaper route such as peel and stick, or wallpaper, it is no doubt that your kitchen will feel as good as new!
Even if your cabinets feel warn out, sometimes all it takes is some new handles to take it from shabby to shabby chic.
Another way to make a bold statement is to update lights! New lighting can go a long way to change the look and feel of a kitchen.
Updating a faucet is as bold as getting a new fridge these days. Not only can you get a much higher end faucet with fancy technology, but you can get one in maybe a matte black? A bold faucet can do wonders!
Cabinet refacing in a great way to remodel a kitchen! If you love the layout, and your boxes are still in great shape, there is no reason not to!
