Need a Kitchen Overhaul? Cheap = BIG Changes

January 11, 2008

If you are like most of us, your kitchen has looked pretty much the same for 20 years. Since it is one of the most costly rooms in your home to have a total remodel done on, this post will give you a few ideas that will drastically change the look of your room without hurting the old pocketbook too much!

PAINT! You can paint just about anything, so here we go. First of all, paint your walls beautiful tones such as country blue (a medium grayish-blue color), seafoam or a light mauve. These colors enliven the room without being too bright or too dark. Next, paint your cabinets white - you can paint over stain, polyurethane

or just about anything. Give them a couple of coats of paint, especially if they were dark to begin with.

Now, just add some new cabinet handles and drawer pulls, either solid colors or something more colorful if you like, such as floral patterns. Throw down a new rug in front of your sink, and you’re done!

This may not sound like such a big change, but once you are done you will see that your kitchen looks totally different than before! The best part is, instead of spending thousands of dollars for a kitchen overhaul, you will only spend a couple of hundred. And your kitchen is once again gorgeous!
