Updating your kitchen can feel like a very daunting task. Wanting to re-create the space seems like an expensive project. Most people spend between $4,000- $50,000 to update their kitchen. There are so many simple and inexpensive ways to create a new look in your kitchen.

Paint Your Cabinets

You could use a color from the White family or a light gray to create a larger brighter-looking space. Consider going with two different colors. Using one color for the top and a darker color for the top cabinets creates a very updated look. 

Though it is a bit more expensive one could consider updating the countertops. The countertop industry has come a long way from our grandparents’ era. There are so many inexpensive products that create a high-end look. For example, quartz is a great countertop option that won’t break the bank.

Lighting Is Everything

The appropriate lighting can change the way your kitchen looks. You might consider recess lighting which brightens every area of the room. Many use pendant lights to add personality to a kitchen. 

Update Your Hardware

Updating your hardware is the second most least expensive way to improve your space. Some people create a new look by simply updating the handles and knobs.  You could take it even further by changing hinges if visible on the outside. Either option is a great way to update your cabinetry at a low affordable cost. 

If you don’t have money to do this project you can simply remove all your hardware and use rust-oleum spray paint. You could change your finish by spray painting your hardware from gold to a stainless steel look. Or if you have silver handles you could update them with a dark gray or black color. They are limitless options with hardware.

Backsplash options have truly come a long way. There are so many options when it comes to different backsplashes. You want to pick a design that will brighten your space and last through current trends. 

After evaluating your budget you can determine which backsplash will work for you. There are many options for traditional ceramic tile backsplashes.  Ceramic tile requires more equipment. For these jobs you will need a tile cutter, a wet saw, mortar. . Still, after researching these types of projects and gathering needed supplies one can use this option to create a successful new look.

If you have a smaller budget, there are new products available such as pull and peel tile. This type of backsplash is very forgiving to new designers. You can pull it up if you haven’t placed it quite centered. It is very easy to work with.

Add Some Simple Touches
