A Few Tips for a Cost-Effective Kitchen Remodel

So, you want to greet the new year with a kitchen remodel? Fantastic! Get ready to tear down some walls and rip up the ceiling for a new skylight. Sound like a bit much? Well, it is. The good news is there are several things you can do to update your kitchen without spending too much money or effort.

A Kitchen Remodel Begs for Newly Painted Cabinets

While you can accomplish a lot by having new cabinets installed, that might go against the goal of attempting a cost-effective kitchen remodel. The fact is, you don’t have to replace your cabinets in order to achieve a similar effect. If you have natural wood cabinetry, then refinish them with a new shade. If they’re painted, then go with a new coat of paint. Either way, painting or refinishing cabinets effectively updates them as if they’re brand new, and enables you to keep them up to date as your personal style evolves.

Replace Knobs and Pulls

The hardware that graces your cabinetry might be more old and outdated than you think. Replacing them costs very little and doesn’t take a lot of work, but you might be surprised at the difference they can make in upgrading the look and feel of your kitchen.

Update Your Sink

You might not realize it, but you spend a lot of time at your kitchen sink. Even if your current sink is working properly, an old sink might be dated and make your whole kitchen feel stale. Thankfully, installing a new one is relatively inexpensive and highly effective. If you don’t want to go through the expense and effort of installing new countertops, a new cast-iron or copper sink and faucet will make your kitchen feel brand new.

Paint the Walls

We’ll let you in on a little secret: your kitchen walls don’t have to be a variety of white. It’s true! By painting the walls a colorful new shade of your choosing, you can make your kitchen pop in a way you never anticipated.

Whatever you’d like to do for your next kitchen remodel, you might need a little help. If that’s the case, don’t hesitate to call the seasoned craftsmen at Handyman Connection of Lexington-Nicholasville, KY. Give us a ring today!
