Staging a home renovation is always an expensive task. Between working with a contractor and plumber, buying new appliances, painting, flooring, and everything in between, it’s easy for a simple renovation to equal a huge bill.
Home renovations, and specifically kitchen renovations also add incredible value to your home. But if a full-scale kitchen renovation is not in the budget this year, there are still several upgrades you can make to your kitchen that is easy on the wallet and will still add great value to your home.
Replace the Faucets
Upgrading your faucets to shiny and modern fixtures will add a world of difference to your kitchen. Today’s faucets and fixtures come with many amazing features such as automation or motion detection, water conservation, and more. We recommend investing in faucets and fixtures that are bold and architecturally inspired. The biggest trend for 2017 is square fixtures and faucets over the organic-inspired fixtures of the past.
Add a Backsplash
Mosaic tiles are also making a comeback in the kitchen. Luckily, for budget-conscious homeowners, there are more options to get a beautiful backsplash on the wall space behind your counter or stove. Rather than spending a fortune on custom work, you can easily head to any hardware store and purchase simple tiles that stick on the wall. These tiles come in large grids so applying them to the wall is easy and removing them when you feel like a change is even easier.
Invest in Faux Granite
Granite and marble countertops continue to be a desired feature for many modern kitchens. But the price may be out of your range for your small kitchen makeover. Many companies are now creating realistic-looking laminate versions of your favorite granite patterns. These countertops are less expensive than the stone version, yet they provide the same gorgeous aesthetic that is in-demand at the moment.
Paint the Cabinets
If your kitchen cabinets are out of date, try painting them instead of replacing them. In most cases, a fresh coat of paint is enough to create a world of difference. This cheap kitchen makeover trick is also great because if you change your mind or get tired of the upgrade, you can always paint the cabinets again. Another option is to simply remove the cabinet doors completely for an open-concept design that is popular in modern kitchens today.
Whether you’re looking to add value to your home for a quick sale or you simply are in need of a change, these easy and inexpensive kitchen upgrades will make a huge difference in your home.
