Top 5 Budget Tips for Updating Your Kitchen

List: Posted: 04/04/11

It has often been said that the kitchen is the heart of a home. In many homes this is certainly true as most families spend a lot of time in the kitchen. If you would like to update your kitchen without spending a lot of money at the home improvement store, here are some helpful tips. 

Café curtains
Café curtains are all the rage right now when it comes to decorating kitchens. They are also an inexpensive way to give your kitchen a new look. 

New hardware
Tired of looking at the same old kitchen cabinets but cannot afford new cabinets? If so, consider changing out the hardware on your existing cabinets for a cheap but fresh new look. 

Even if you are not able to spring for a new hardwood floor in your kitchen, you can still provide your feet with some additional cushioning and freshen up your floors by tossing some new rugs on the floor. This is a great way to give your kitchen an updated look. 

Paint can go a long way toward updating any room for not a lot of money. Repaint the existing cabinets or give your kitchen walls a fresh new coat of paint. Either way, you will be able to enjoy a completely new look.

Resurface appliances
Do your existing appliances work fine but look outdated and dull? If you would like the look of new kitchen appliances but they are not in your budget, look into having your existing appliances resurfaced. This is much less expensive route to obtaining newer looking appliances.
