Out with the Old: Affordable Updates for Any Kitchen


If you don’t want to pour thousands into a complete kitchen overhaul, following some of these smart tips will help you realize the value of the refresh compared to the remodel. All it takes is a little bit of ingenuity, a keen eye for design and the right vision and you’ll be well on your way to an updated kitchen that’s affordable and attractive.

Accessorize to Bring New Excitement

Affordable Kitchen Backsplash

One of the best ways to update your kitchen on a budget is to choose a bold, budget-friendly backsplash. You can install an affordable, do-it-yourself backsplash when you choose simple materials and an artful design, like wallpaper, paint or ceramic tiles. If you’re feeling weary, follow this simple mantra: if you made a mosaic in art class, you can do your own tiled backsplash. Make a statement with bright colors, hand-painted tiles or vintage wallpaper for a truly eclectic, inspired aesthetic in the kitchen.

Remember that a little bit of accessorizing can go a long way when it comes to the kitchen. Rather than dumping tons of money into new appliances or countertops, add a splash of style with unique wall hangings – matted, framed artwork is always a good idea – and other intriguing accessories such as countertop sculptures, live plants or hanging pot racks. Kitchen décor should always be both functional and fashionable, so hunt down pieces that will make cooking, entertaining and storage simpler. Stake your claim on vintage and second-hand items at the local thrift shop or flea market.

New Fixtures Add New Life

Unique Kitchen Light Fixture

Focusing on the finishes – like your cabinet hardware or a new kitchen faucet – can give your kitchen the refresh it requires without busting out the sledge hammer. Chic cabinet handles are truly one of the most affordable ways to spice up the kitchen without installing brand-new cabinetry or countertops. Choose stainless steel or nickel knobs and handles to achieve an ultra-updated look or opt for a warmer, deeper finish for a more traditional look that still brings style and sophistication to a tired-looking kitchen.

In the same vein, you can affordably update your kitchen sink with a brand-new kitchen faucet – like our impressive LCLK4B Kitchen Faucet that features a sleek, brushed nickel finish plus a dramatic curved design. The same result can be achieved by installing beautifully unique light fixtures in unconventional shapes or colors. Think outside the box when selecting lighting and you can create an intriguing, gallery-inspired space that feels both exciting and inviting.

A Little Paint Goes a Long Way

Never underestimate the value of the paint can. Giving your kitchen walls a fresh coat of paint, perhaps in a new and exciting color, has the power to change the entire feeling of the room. The other great thing about repainting walls is that it adds a clean, fresh mood to a room that may have become gloomy over time. Choosing a bright statement color can actually replace the need for a noisy backsplash or colorful wall-hangings, so don’t be afraid to get in touch with your artistic side.
