5 tips to revamp your kitchen on a budget

Redecorating your kitchen may often seem like a daunting task. The thought of paying bundles of cash to a reputed interior designer or contacting an interior design consultancy company in Singapore can bog you down. However, you don’t always need tons of cash to refurbish your kitchen. At times, some simple changes here and there can help transform the look and feel of your entire kitchen, without having to hire professionals for the job.

Here are some ideas for you:

Repaint your kitchen cabinets

The cabinets are the most prominent feature of your kitchen. Getting new kitchen cabinets, however, can be pricey. Alternatively, you can repaint your kitchen cabinets. Just give them a light-colored hue – blue, sage green or amber yellow – rather than the standard white ones and see how your kitchen brightens up immediately.

Use a snazzy backsplash

The best thing about a backsplash (the panel behind your sink or stove that protects the wall from splashes) is that they are between 10 and 40 square feet on an average and hence won’t take much space or money. So even if you are spending $5 a square foot, you will probably end up dishing out just about 100 bucks at the most to reinvigorate your backsplash. And in case you don’t have the skills to install tiles or the cash to hire professionals, you can simply paint the backsplash. Just go for a snazzy, semi-gloss color and your cool backsplash will add new life to your kitchen.

Add new hands and pulls

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to revamp your kitchen is by changing the cabinetry hardware. Just look for cool colorful handles and pulls or even doorknobs for the different cabinets in your kitchen. Make sure they are not overly cutesy as that might be counterproductive.

Use small appliances as decorative items

Small and varied appliances can really spice up your kitchen in many ways and won’t pinch your pocket either. Opt for things like a blue toaster, a cherry red mixer, canary-colored kettles and grey and black cookers. Mix and match them nicely and your kitchen would be really perked up.

Use a splendid sink

Your sink is undeniably an essential part of your kitchen; you don’t need an interior designer to tell you that. A bland sink can really suck out the soul of your kitchen and hence getting a new one would be a good idea. Look for under mount sinks. You’ll find many color options to choose from. Another thing you should keep in mind is the size; unnecessarily large ones will eat up your space and may make the kitchen look inordinate.

Finally, revamping your kitchen on a budget is no easy feat. Whether you do it yourself or hire an interior design firm, it is important to know your budget and plan accordingly. Choose the things in your kitchen that need a complete overhaul, and go for it according to the budget you have. If you can follow the above tips, you should be able to refresh your kitchen at a fraction of the cost.
