Minor Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

How much does it really cost to remodel a kitchen? While the average remodel may top out around $20,000-$30,000, there may be a way to get the kitchen of your dream on a lower budget.

If you’re looking to renovate on a budget, these tips are the place to get started.

What to Remodel?

Focus the bulk of your budget on the must-haves. If you want brand new cabinets, counters, or appliances, pick the most important area first.

Remember, you can always add some touches to the remodel as time goes on. Start with the bulk of the project, and work with the smaller details down the road.

Backsplash and Accents

Looking to save on all of the minor details? Peel and stick backsplash gives you the look you want on the budget you have.

This is an affordable way to refresh your kitchen and it’s growing in popularity. There are different options you can consider, too, and the price begins at around $1.00 per square foot.

Be Mindful of Lighting

Changing the lighting in your kitchen doesn’t need to be as expensive as it sounds. For starters, look at switching just a light shade instead of the entire fixture.

To take the look to a whole new level, consider Edison-style bulbs or pendant lighting. A professional can help you with hanging lights at the correct height to ensure they are in the clear from getting in the way.

Change Hardware

Refresh cabinets with new hardware. If your cabinets are still in good shape but will not exactly the new look you are going for, swap the hardware. Take a few of the knobs off and head down to the local hardware store to find an alternative.

New Flooring

If you’ve decided to go ahead and replace all of the hardware, consider painting the cabinets while making the swap. Even if your existing flooring is in good shape, if it doesn’t match the new look of the kitchen, it may be time to lay some type of floating or lock-floor in its place.

New and refreshed kitchen flooring options include luxury vinyl planks or laminate which are indeed budget-friendly. These work onto the top of the floor and require no adhesive or finishing nails.
