The average kitchen remodels costs a staggering amount. But you don’t need to shell out big bucks to make a big impact in an outdated kitchen. Whether you’ve lived in your house for years or you just got the keys, here are some easy ways to give it a refresh:

Kitchen Interior
1. Custom Cabinets

Replace existing doors with glass-paneled ones looks like a major upgrade. Opt for frosted glass, if you feel like your shelves aren’t display-worthy. Or, ditch the doors altogether to create the effect of open shelving. this is usually done in kitchens to create a lighter space. Display your favorite dishes and bowls to add a bit of interest to the room.

2. Consider Painting Your Cabinets

A complete overhaul isn’t always in the cards (new cabinets are pricey!), so instead, give the cabinetry a fresh coat of paint. Going from wood to white adds new light or looking to go modern consider grey or black.

3. Add a Backsplash

The beauty of it is that it’s very limited in square footage, the average backsplash is between 10 and 40 square feet. It’s an easy-to-tackle area that won’t break the bank. Don’t have the skills to install tile or cash for a contractor? Try paint instead. Just make sure you pick up a semi-gloss, the glossier the paint, the more it will resist moisture — and you can simply wipe it clean when dinner is over.

4. Paint an Accent Wall

Not game to spend hours painting cabinets? Quickly do a single wall instead. Or consider covering your current paint with idea paint which will make any wall into a dry erase – great for a calendar area, grocery or to-do lists as well as children’s artwork.

5. Get New Handles and Pulls

Changing out cabinetry hardware is one of the easiest and quickest updates. Look for colorful options or a brushed nickel finish. But resist the temptation to get something too personal or cutesy.
