If you want a new look, then you have many choices. Whether you want a sleek modern look or sophisticated country charm; there are many different styles, designs and color schemes that are sure to make your kitchen a place where you will love to spend time. No matter how much money you have in your decorating budget, you are sure to find plenty of kitchen design ideas to suit your taste and preferences. Let’s take a look at a few design ideas to give you some inspiration.
Salvage What You Can
If you want a new look in your kitchen, yet funds are limited, then it is a great idea to keep whatever you can. By salvaging some of the materials in your kitchen, you will have more left to spend on other items. For example, if your cabinets are in good shape yet need a change or makeover, try adding new hardware or perhaps a coat of paint. Or maybe your kitchen is simply bland and boring; you can easily spice up that kitchen by using the existing platform and adding a coat of paint, new accessories and rugs that coordinate.
Another way that you can give your kitchen the facelift that it needs without spending a ton of money is by choosing to have your existing cabinets resurfaced. Instead of spending money on new cabinets because you simply don’t like your old ones, consider breathing new life into them by resurfacing them in the finish of your choice. Not only is this going to be a lot cheaper, it will also allow you a level of customization generally only found when choosing new cabinets.
A great way to make a difference in your kitchen is to remove unnecessary items and create ample storage space in your kitchen. This will help you to keep your kitchen clean because everything will have a specific place to go. Replace your current clutter with coordinated glass canisters to hold kitchen essentials; or install floating shelves with color coordinating storage baskets.
Reuse & Repurpose
So important and quite the cost saver! If you want to decorate your kitchen on a budget, consider looking around your house, in the attic or basement to find items that are not being used. Perhaps you have a piece of furniture not being utilized that you could repurpose for your kitchen storage needs. Or, if you want to accessorize your kitchen for cheap, consider looking at your local thrift store or garage sales.
