Posted: September 18, 2017 by Rod Smith

You do not have to spend a fortune to update your tired kitchen. Therefore, only choose projects that will make the biggest impact in giving your kitchen a fresh new look for the lowest price possible. Whether you have lived in your house for years or have just gotten the key to one of the open houses North Myrtle Beach SC, here are a few stylish yet budget-friendly ideas to help you revamp your kitchen without breaking the bank.

 Make The Most Out Of Your Kitchen Upgrade Budget

1. Pull out the paint

If you have recently moved into one of the open houses North Myrtle Beach SC and want to add a more personal touch to your kitchen, a fresh coat of paint can help upscale it. For instance, you can paint your cabinets a chic black and sand the edges to give it a cozy contemporary flair. If you are looking for versatility, try warm putty, duck egg blue or a pale sage green paint. These shades go with many different materials and finishes. For a modern look, paint the top and bottom cupboards with different colors to give it a contrasting look.


2. Accessorize

Accessories have a way of brightening up a kitchen in an instant. Even better, you have the option of choosing themed accessories to bring the look of your kitchen together. Display the accessories on open shelving. Consider reorganizing the kitchen so that your favorites are on the show. Swap out the current cabinet knobs and pulls for silver, copper, gold or rose-gold ones. Shiny metals have a way of lifting the look of a tired kitchen. Plus, they create luxurious looking hardware.


3. Add or change lighting

Make your kitchen a warm and inviting space by illuminating dark corners with overhead light fixtures. Sconces that are placed above open shelving provide ambient light and offer more personality compared to track lighting. A stylish new pendant light can become the new focal point of your kitchen. Ideally, when adding new lighting into your kitchen, have an electrician install them neatly with cords hidden. They may also use plug-in versions with cord covers to conceal the dangling wires.


4. Add storage

Is your kitchen lacking in storage? Rustic wood shelves can be installed into your kitchen cheaply. They provide functional display spaces for everyday dishes. Also, you can fill the empty, awkward spaces in your kitchen with faux kitchen storage. Make sure it can hold extra light fixtures to brighten it up. Clearing your kitchen worktop will also instantly improve your kitchen storage.


5. Update your kitchen floor

If your current kitchen floor is letting your new scheme down, you do not have to worry about taking it all out. For instance, if your wooden floors are looking drab, consider painting them. Pale gray and blue are classic paint color options. If your kitchen floor needs more than painting, consider laying a new floor on top of the old one. Laminate floors are highly recommended. To save time, look for laminate flooring with underlayment already attached.
