The average kitchen renovation costs a staggering $ 21,751 – and premium products average close to $ 50,909. No bone about it: That’s a lot of money.
But you don’t have to shell out a lot of money to make a big impact in an outdated kitchen. Whether you’ve lived in your home for years or just got the keys to it, here are some simple, inexpensive ways to update any kitchen:
Bring the pattern.
A vintage-inspired rug or lush floral wallpaper adds tons of personality to even the smallest of kitchens. If you want to try both at the same time, just look for designs that have a bonding color between them.
Hang floating shelves.
We could all use more storage, right? Take inspiration from McGee & Co. and place rustic ledges over the sink to stack dishes, glasses and even artwork.
Add color with stools.
Metal stools like these are notoriously inexpensive and often sold in sets. For extra cuteness in an all-white kitchen, try creating a rainbow effect with a different color on each stool.
Use plates as a wall decoration.
Simply stick them to the wall with removable bands, or hang them with plate hangers. Look in your porcelain hutch for a treasured heirloom, or pick up a few colorful and inexpensive ones from a garage sale.
Think of them as the jewelry in your kitchen – the right ones can tie the whole room together or stand out to make a statement.
Nothing changes a room like a paint job. With the teal coating walls and cabinetry, there’s no need to stack more hues – the unique shade alone makes it interesting.
Bring an inexpensive dining table.
Designer Jenn Feldman has set an IKEA dining table next to a kitchen island (yes, they can touch each other!) To make dinner time easier for a family with kids.
Show your goods.
Try removing the front of a cabinet and lay out the colorful glassware and bowls to create an eye-catching focal point. Bonus: add small hooks under a shelf to hold tea cups!
Install snack drawers.
Store healthy prepackaged foods in drawers and low baskets that children can reach when they need an after-school snack.
Upgrade your devices.
Did you know that you can recolor your appliances with vinyl? We didn’t make it either until A beautiful mess shared with us how they coated their basic stainless steel skillet in the prettiest shade of mint. Genius!
