5 Ways to Update Your Kitchen on a Budget

If you’re getting ready to sell but can’t afford a new kitchen, there are plenty of face lift options for those on a budget. If you’re a DIY expert you’ll save even more money by doing the work yourself. (Electrical and structural changes should be done by a professional).

Kitchen cabinets

If your kitchen cabinets are still in good nick but could do with a modern look consider refacing your cabinet doors. Not only will this cost a lot less than new custom cabinets, but you’ll also be keeping perfectly good cabinetry out of landfill. Resurfacing options include a layer of natural wood, laminate or rigid thermofoil on existing cabinet surfaces . Alternatively your cabinets could be suitable for painting or you might decide you love the open cabinet look and ditch the doors altogether!

Tiles

Paint your tiles. Tile paint will paint over glass, porcelain and ceramic tiles and is a great alternative to forking out money to have new tiles or a backsplash put in. And best of all? When you’re ready for a change paint them another colour! Not sure how to paint tiles? Bunnings DIY advice shows you how.

Lighting

Change your lighting. Pendant lights come in a variety of styles – industrial, modern, contemporary, traditional – and look great over an island bench or large kitchen table. Spotlights and under cabinet lights can help shed new light on your dinner preparation.

Appliances/Accessories

Replace small items such as your sink, taps, cabinet knobs/handles and small bench top appliances and breathe new life into a tired kitchen without breaking the bank.

Paint an accent wall

Easy as selecting the perfect wall in your kitchen and adding a splash of paint. Want to try before you buy the paint? Try the Dulux Colour App. Simply download the app, take a photo of your room and try out paint colours. Voila, you’ll be off to the paint shop in no time.
