Nifty yet inexpensive ways to update your kitchen

January 26, 2017 | Higgins Group Real Estate

Kitchen Remodel$20,000 is the cost of an average kitchen remodel – more if you’re going for high-end upgrades.

The good news is, you don’t have to spend this much to get a fresh new look – there are many ways to create a huge impact on an outdated kitchen without shelling out some serious cash.

Here are some of them:

Repaint your kitchen cabinets

Rather than replacing your old kitchen cabinets, you may consider just giving them a fresh coat of paint, which can do wonders. Pro tip: if you have dark colored countertops, balance the look with bright colors like green, yellow, or orange.

Use small appliances as decorative pieces

You can use small appliances as accent pieces for your kitchen. Select playful colors for small appliances like coffeemakers, toasters, or mixers. The best thing about this is you can easily rearrange them or put them in storage if you’re creating a new look.

Place a small, attractive rug right in front of your sink

A small rug in front of the sink accomplishes two things: it adds a splash of color and makes it more comfortable for your feet whenever you’re standing at your workstation. Look for a rug which is durable and can be cleaned easily, so in case you spill something on it, you can simply use a hose to clean it.

Get new window treatments

Adding new drapes is a great way to refresh your kitchen’s look, although you need to put some thought into the type of treatment you’ll hang above your sink. Stay away from using too much fabric, as it can easily be ruined due to splashing. Look for something retractable, so you can pull them up whenever you’re washing the dishes.
