5 Ways to Renovate Your Kitchen on a Small Budget
Posted on April 07, 2021
The heart of any home is in the kitchen. Unfortunately, an outdated kitchen can make your entire home feel old and dreary. Many homeowners dream of a kitchen renovation but aren’t sure if they have the budget for a complete makeover. Kitchen contractors can help revitalize your kitchen, even on a small budget. With the help of home renovation contractors, you can breathe new life into a core room in your home and ensure you and your family enjoy cooking again. Here are a few helpful tips for renovating a kitchen on a small budget.
Refresh Rather Than Replace Cabinets
Your cabinets make up a sizeable portion of your kitchen and are among the most front-facing elements of the room. Changing your cabinets helps put a fresh face on your kitchen and transform the room into a bright and refreshed space. Although many people do not have the budget to replace their cabinetry completely, a much cheaper option is to restore your existing cabinets. With the help of kitchen contractors, this could include re-staining old and tired wood cabinets or adding a fresh coat of paint. When it comes to painting, you could choose to add a pop of colour for a unique design element or choose a classic colour like white to make your kitchen feel large and bright. Home renovation contractors can make your kitchen feel brand new, even on a small budget, with bright and refreshed cabinets.
Match Kitchen Appliances
One thing that is the same about all high-end kitchens: their appliances match. Whether you have older white appliance models or modern stainless-steel appliances, you can quickly improve your kitchen’s aesthetic by matching your appliances. Depending on your kitchen, if you are slowly updating your devices, it might be a great time to invest in replacing the rest of your appliances to be in the same style. Kitchen contractors at Rose Building Group specialize in kitchen renovations, offering high-end contractor services at an affordable price. The perfect option for homeowners looking to make an inexpensive change to their home.
Keep Flooring Minimal But, Don’t Skimp on Counters
When considering a kitchen renovation, many homeowners are concerned about the price of their flooring. Tile and hardwood can be expensive, but thankfully there are plenty of high-end vinyl options for modern kitchens. Without breaking the bank, home renovation contractors can help you replace your existing flooring with an affordable option such as vinyl wood or tile.
Unlike flooring, kitchen contractors never recommend skimping on counters. Your counters should be the centrepiece of your kitchen and will likely be the feature most noticeable by visitors and family members. A durable, long-lasting counter is essential to ensure it can survive years of cooking, homework, and family memories in your new kitchen. Easily compare options with the kitchen contractors at Rose Building Group to help you find the flooring and counters that fit your budget.
Keep the Same Kitchen Layout
Kitchen renovations quickly become expensive if you are looking to change the layout of the room. Whether that means knocking out a wall to expand your kitchen or simply swapping the location of different features, the price tag can quickly add up if you are considering a significant structural change. TO help keep your costs low and keep your renovations within budget, we recommend keeping the same kitchen layout. You can still completely transform your space with the help of kitchen contractors, a fresh coat of paint, and many of the suggestions outlined above. Without changing the room’s layout, you can transform the heart of your home and learn to enjoy spending time in the kitchen again.
Make the Space Your Own
Beyond your counter and flooring choices, custom design elements can make a huge difference when it comes to kitchen renovations. At Rose Building Group, we offer interior design services to help you make your kitchen truly unique. These design elements include simple changes like a new backsplash, fresh artwork, or a pop of colour on cabinets. You can also think outside of the box to have a chalkboard wall, free-standing kitchen island, or other design features useful for you and your family. The sky is the limit when it comes to making your kitchen space one of a kind. Not sure where to begin? Our interior design team can help suggest design elements that improve your new kitchen’s function and aesthetic.
