5 Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Upgrade Your Kitchen


Homeowners who are on a tight budget often dismiss the idea of ever being able to upgrade their kitchens. They think that they cannot afford the newest home improvement styles and have no way to improve this room of their home without spending a lot of money. However, some of the best ways to upgrade your kitchen involve spending very little, if any money at all. Indeed, these simple and affordable ideas let you upgrade and bring new life to your kitchen.

Add a Secondhand Kitchen Island

If you have room to spare in your kitchen, you can transform the way it looks and functions by adding a kitchen island. Of course, new kitchen islands sold in home improvement or furniture stores tend to cost a lot of money. You can save your budget by purchasing a secondhand island or even a used table at a flea market or garage sale. After you stain or repaint it, you can then place it in your kitchen to be used as an island.

Hang a Backsplash

Stick On Tile Backsplash
Adding a tiled backsplash in your kitchen can also give this room a new and interesting look. However, rather than buying expensive tile at your local home improvement store, you can instead purchase more affordable stick-on tiling at your favorite big box store. Stick-on tiling proves to be just as durable and more affordable than traditional ceramic tile. It also involves a lot less work to hang behind your sink.

Add Shelves

When you hang a few well-placed shelves in your kitchen, you add both dimension and storage space to this room. Flat walls that have nothing hanging on them tend to make a room boring and uninviting. You can add character, appeal, dimension, and space to put up knick-knacks or pictures when you hang a few shelves in your kitchen. You can also paint your shelving to match your new kitchen decorating scheme.

Change Drawer Handles and Knobs

Kitchen Drawer Handles & Knobs
You may not have given the knobs and handles on your doors, cabinets, and drawers much thought. However, when you change out these fixtures, you can bring new life to this room and add a touch of color and style. These fixtures are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at hardware, big box, and home improvement stores. They come in finishes like faux gold, pearl, wrought iron, silver, and more.

Decorate with Flowers and Fruit

Kitchen With Flowers & Fruit Bowl
You can finish off your inexpensive kitchen upgrades by adding a vase or two of fresh flowers or a bowl of fresh fruit on your counters or island. The color and aroma of the flowers and fruit will make your kitchen seem more inviting and colorful. You can also mix and match varieties to match the season of the year. You could also use wax fruit and flowers if you prefer not to buy them fresh every few days.
