DIY Updates You Can Make to Your Kitchen on a Budget



This summer is the perfect time to do some work on your home. And what better place to start than your kitchen?

About 76% of homeowners change the style of their kitchen during their remodeling project, making it one of the most commonly altered areas of the home. If you can’t come up with any great ideas, Architect Art Design has a few suggestions. And better yet, these ideas won’t break the bank.

This year, hidden organizational elements are key for a modernized kitchen. And you don’t have to spend a ton of money to do so. Installing faux drawers that hold recycling bins and garbage cans is a great way to keep the smelly trash out of the way. You can also install in-the-counter storage which can be used to hold bread, plates, and cutlery. Keeping everything hidden will help to give your kitchen a clean and modern look. It will also give you a lot of space to work if you have a big family that loves to eat.

The Spruce says you can give your sink a fresh look with a $4.00 can of spray paint and some sandpaper. Head to your local home store and find a can of spray paint that is designed to stick to metal. Clean the sink thoroughly and run your sandpaper around the entirety of the base. Then paint the sink with any color you want. If you’re looking to brighten up your kitchen, opt for a can of white spray paint. Just remember to clean it before you have company over.

Along the lines of painting, instead of painting your entire kitchen, paint the cabinets instead. Use a coat or two of stain or paint, both of which will help you revamp your space on a tight budget. You can find a kit meant for refinishing your cabinets for about $75.00, or you can only focus on the doors or shelves to cut back on a few dollars. To get the best results, fill in the nicks and holes with wood putty and allow the paint to try completely before putting your dishes back inside.

Redoing your kitchen doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. There are plenty of ways to give the area an entirely fresh look that will allow you to stay within a budget.
