If your kitchen is still in good condition but feels dated or if you simply don’t have the budget to completely gut it and start from scratch, a simple kitchen remodel
might be just what you need. Consider these tips from the professionals at Booher Remodeling Company
If your cabinets are solid and in good condition, you may not need to replace them. In fact, as far as return on investment goes, it’s usually in your best interest to paint or refinish them and update the hardware. You can also replace tired laminate countertops with something more durable and modern.
Even though flooring covers a large area of the kitchen, people often forget that it needs updating too. Beaten up wood floors can usually be refinished for a fraction of the cost of replacing them. Another surface that is often overlooked is the backsplash. Installing a backsplash is a great way to add a ‘splash’ of color or sparkle and really make the kitchen seem finished without the financial commitment of some of your larger surfaces.
A coat of paint goes a long way in changing the look of a kitchen and making it feel brighter and cleaner, and it’s easy on the wallet. Neutral colors will let the rest of the kitchen shine whereas brighter colors might try to steal the show.
Appliances and Finishing Details
No matter how great your kitchen designer
may be, if you keep the almond-colored appliances from the 80s or light fixtures that belong in a sitcom, the kitchen won’t really look updated. With a little research and shopping, it’s possible to buy good quality appliances, fixtures, sinks, faucets, and hardware while sticking to your budget.
