Best Budget Conscious Kitchen Features

Fresh Hardware

Using new hardware is an easy and inexpensive way to update your entire kitchen’s look. Think about the style you’re aiming for with the hardware. For example, if you want something sleek and totally contemporary, consider simple, understated metal fixtures. If you’re looking for a more old fashioned look, bring in handles that call to mind classic styles. Brass is a good choice that says luxury.

Thoughtful Storage Options

Storage is another essential component in any kitchen design plan. You’ll want to have storage that lets you use all areas of the kitchen more efficiently. Many modern storage methods make it possible to store items. Metal storage that hangs over the side of a door is easy to use. A lazy susan can be placed in a corner of the kitchen making it easy to get access to smaller items with a quick flick.

Painting the Cabinets

If you’d like to have renovated kitchen cabinets, consider taking down your existing cabinets and having them painted. Bright, clean cabinets can provide your kitchen with a whole new look for a fraction of the cost of new cabinets.

Useful Lighting

Lighting is crucial in any kitchen. You need lots of light to see what you’re doing. Adding light to the kitchen can be done on a budget. There’s lot of options. Place stick on lights along the area leading to the kitchen. Use LED rope lighting along the top of the kitchen cabinets. Two or three basic wall scones can be added in areas that need them most such as next to the fridge. Decorative candles can be placed as needed in order to add detail and color to the entire look. Use varied candles heights when inviting guests to delight the eye.

Porcelain Tiles

Tiles are ideal in any kitchen. They’re cool to the touch. They also come in many varied colors. Fortunately, you can also find lots of tiles that are durable but also ideal for the budget you have in mind. Use ceramic tiles along the backsplash to add a luxury look. Use far less expensive porcelain tiles on the floor and your kitchen countertops. They’re just as pretty as any other forms of tile but they’re also generally easier on the budget.
