Have you ever wondered how anyone in today’s current world can afford to start a kitchen renovation, nevermind a simple kitchen renovation? While this project may seem like an unnecessary action on the surface, a kitchen remodel does wonders for your space and its selling value. If you’re looking to make additional income on your home before selling, or you’re just in dire need of an upgrade to some part of your home, we here at Joseph Kitchen and Bath believe the kitchen is a great place to start.
Even so, like we mentioned in our first paragraph, this type of project can get pricey real quick. The good news is this can be avoided — with the right amount of research, almost any person can renovate their kitchen the way they want whilst staying within their budget! To get some advice on how to do so, check out the information we here at Joseph Kitchen and Bath have come up with below.
When in Doubt, Thrift Things Out
Contrary to popular belief, not every kitchen item has to be bought brand new to look as good as new. As a matter of fact, if you visit thrift stores or warehouse outlets quite often, you can find hundreds of beautiful-looking kitchen items and furniture pieces for great prices. While it’s important that you’re always on the lookout for any scratches, dents or worn-out paint when going this route, you’d be surprised at just how many things you can get that have barely been touched/messed with. Heck, in some cases, older items are built better so you’re actually getting a better item for a cheaper price! There’s no harm in trying this method and seeing what you’re able to find.
Out With The Pricey Kitchen Islands, In With The New
When people mention kitchen islands in any type of remodelling context, most people will agree that this upgrade is beyond most people’s budget. Since these islands often come with fancy stools, a sink and quartz countertops, the money stacks up fast and becomes a very unrealistic purchase. Luckily for you, however, free-standing islands are very much in and work for nearly every kitchen imaginable! While a professionally designed, marble kitchen island will cost you anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000, a beautiful standing table with storage underneath will usually cost you no more than a few hundred dollars (and look just as great!).
A Paint Job Does Wonders
If you are looking for a quick, easy and affordable way to switch up the look of your kitchen, try repainting the space! If you really want this space to pop you can try a two-toned cabinet design by painting the top cabinets with a light, muted colour and the bottom ones with a darker, more bold colour. Maybe you have an accent wall that you want to highlight— if so, paint that wall with a bold, bright colour and make the others a more muted shade. Maybe the walls of your kitchen are too cold and you want to warm them up with a warm cream colour, or you like the look of an earthy kitchen and want to try a sage green paired with some fancy kitchen plants. The options are truly endless with this design feature, and the best part is that it’s super affordable.
