Kitchen is the heart of a home where you spend a considerable amount of your time, not just cooking food, but spending time together as a couple or family. If you are planning for a kitchen makeover, whether you’re a renter or on a budget, here are 6 amazing ways to give your kitchen a makeover without breaking the bank.
Add More Storage
A cluttered counter can make an already drab space look worse. Remove everything, except for daily essentials, from your counters and keep it all on a tray for maximum tidiness. But maximize every inch of precious space, and you and your kitchen will be able to work wonders together. You can also get the most out of the cabinets you do have with stackable shelves, under-shelf baskets etc.
Add A Mirror
Hanging a mirror on a kitchen is a great idea as it can visibly increase the space and add more light to the kitchen. You can also replace you glass cabinet doors with mirror panels. Even mirrors can be installed on the shelves for better lighting.
Add A Rug
The kitchen is often where people gather in the home. Rugs are a great way to add color in a neutral-toned kitchen. Rugs are also pretty and add a little cushioning underfoot in a space where you spend a lot of time on your feet. A rug not only adds color, style, and warmth into your kitchen space but also gives you the benefits of noise reduction and a little cushioning.
New hardware can transform a kitchen. Kitchen cabinet hardware can make a big impact on the look and feel of the entire room. You may switch out knobs and pulls for a dramatic update without spending a lot of money or a lot of effort. You can also give your kitchen a very personalized treatment with something custom like artistic glass or bronze knobs.
Add Some Work Space
When you have the floor space for an extra little cabinet or a rolling cart, you should definitely buy one and put it to good use. There are a lot of other little things also that you can do to make it seem like you have more kitchen countertop space than you really do like the use of an over-sink cutting board, fold-down work surface, creative appliance storage, pull-out cutting board or cook top prep area.
Take The Doors Down
It seems like a silly idea at first glance, but removing a set of cabinet doors can be very useful. You can create an open feel in your kitchen by creating an open shelf space. Unless you have a major pest or dust problem, or have pets in the house, the contents of kitchen cabinets do not always need robust protection. In case if you staying in a rental home, just remember to keep track of the changes that you make as you will be responsible for putting things back when you move out.
