Renovating your kitchen to help give you extra storage space, or just to upgrade it to look a little more modern doesn't have to cost you a lot of money. There are some things you can do, some are even DIY projects you can do in a single day. See below for some of these kitchen renovations.
New countertops can change the entire look of your kitchen. If you have older countertops, or if your counters are damaged or broken, installing new countertops is a good update to make to your kitchen. Countertops come in a variety of style, color and material options. On the cheaper end, you can opt for laminate and on the more expensive end you can go with marble or granite. Laminate can mimic the look of both marble and granite, especially with high definition laminate and roll over edging. Laminate is also a good choice if you want to install them yourself, as granite, marble and even corian may be a little more difficult for the average homeowner.
Pull Out Garbage Cans
Take that ugly garbage can out of your kitchen and hide it in a cabinet instead. Install a roll out garbage can in a cabinet you don't need or use, somewhere near where you prepare food is ideal. The downside to a pull out garbage can is the cans are usually a little on the small side, meaning you'll be taking the trash out more often. You can find pull out garbage cans and the hardware for your cabinet at your local hardware store or big box store.
Install pot and pan organizers in your cabinets to help you organize your cookware a little better. You can install a cookie sheet/baking pan organizer, which helps keep them separated so you aren't pulling one out, with the rest of them falling out on top of you. Pot lid organizers can be installed on your cabinet door to make them easier to find. Pots and pans can also be stored in cabinets using an easy-to-install organizer keeping each of them easy to get to. These organizers can all be found at your local hardware store and are simple to install.
Tile your backsplash easily using peel and stick tile that can mimic glass tile or even stone. These peel and stick tiles are fairly inexpensive and simple to install. If the peel and stick version isn't your thing, contact a kitchen remodeling company to have this update done for you with the tile of your choice.
Kitchen remodels and renovations don't have to cost an arm and a leg, you can do some smaller upgrades to your kitchen all by yourself that can make a big impact. Larger remodeling projects such as new cabinets, flooring or the installation of a built-in island should be left to the professionals. For more information, contact a business such as Luxcucina.
