How many times have you heard that the kitchen is the heart of the home? Like anything close to your heart, you want to show it off to the best of its ability. But, kitchen remodeling can be extremely expensive. Following are three things you can do to update your kitchen without breaking the bank.

Reface/Paint Cabinets: One of the reasons tackling cabinets is a great idea when remodeling a kitchen is that they occupy the largest “eye space” in this room. Hence, if you change the cabinets, you can make a big impact relatively easily…

Replacing cabinets can be expensive though. A more inexpensive – and just as effective — choice is to paint and/or reface them. You can save thousands by going this route.

Reface Appliances: Instead of replacing appliances, one way to update them and give your kitchen a whole new look, paint them.

Many aren’t aware that there is commercially available appliance paint that can do just this. And, it costs just a few dollars. But oh, the impact! Appliance paint comes in colors like stainless steel and brushed aluminum. It can be applied on all major kitchen appliances, eg, refrigerators, dishwashers and microwaves.

Replace or Update Hardware: It’s the little touches that make a space unique – and fashionable. This is where you can make a big impact for very little money. Replacing and/or adding new hardware like faucets and cabinet door handles can update your kitchen instantly.

These kitchen remodeling projects can be completed in 24 hours or less, giving you the kitchen of your dreams.
