Budget-Friendly Kitchen Updates

When it comes to renovation projects, kitchens are known for being on the pricey side. But the good news is that there are some things that you can do to update your kitchen without breaking the bank and making sure to stay within your budget. 

Today, at Ascension General Contractors, we are giving you some ideas for a few budget-friendly kitchen updates. 

Change Up Your Cabinets

A fresh coat of paint always seems to be a suggestion when it comes to updating your home, but a new coat of paint has a special way of making something look brand new.  And when it comes to your kitchen cabinets, it is a relatively easy and cheap way to update your kitchen. As another option, you can also try removing your cabinet doors to create the perfect display for your glassware. 

Add Open Shelving

Most homeowners would probably agree that additional storage space in their kitchen is never a bad thing. Open shelving has become quite popular in recent years as a flexible and convenient storage option. And when you’re trying to save on a massive renovation with the goal of adding more space, open shelving is the perfect solution. But if you are still unsure about adding it to your kitchen, check out this article for some reasons why you should try it!

Create Better Lighting 

Lighting is an important part of making updates to a kitchen and can really make a huge difference if you’re working with a small budget. The right light can tie the whole room together simply by swapping out outdated fixtures for something that brightens your kitchen. When it comes to lighting for cooking, focus on adding light coming from multiple directions. If you want to create a focal point in your kitchen, such as highlighting architectural features or special collections on display, consider adding accent lighting. 

Install New Hardware

If you have old doorknobs, faucets, and cabinet hardware, replacing them with newer, more modern options can really help update the style of your kitchen without too much time, energy, or money put into making the change. When it comes to choosing the type of metal to use, try matching your hardware to your fixtures, and avoid adding too many different types of metals in the room to keep the look consistent.
