Investing in renovations is a great way to improve both the function and value of your home. Generally speaking, most experts agree remodeling the kitchen is the best place to start since it will provide the highest ROI (return on investment). Although remodeling your entire kitchen can be quite expensive, there are smaller renovations which can still greatly improve your kitchen and save you money. The following are three kitchen renovation ideas to save you money over a full-blown remodel.
Reface Your Kitchen Cabinets
The cabinets take up a large amount of visual space in the kitchen. As such, how they look has a big impact on the overall aesthetic. If your cabinets are visually outdated, you may be thinking about replacing them. However, removing your old cabinets and installing brand new ones can be very costly. An alternative option would be to reface your cabinets. Doing this will provide you with a brand new look at a fraction of the price.
Add a New Coat of Paint
If you’re trying to give your kitchen a facelift, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by adding a fresh coat of paint. In many cases, an outdated kitchen can benefit from a new paint job. Even just painting the trim around the kitchen windows and doors could have a big effect. Some of the most popular colors for the kitchen space include white, gray, yellow, red, green, and blue. Remember, if you have a smaller kitchen, brighter colors will help make it feel a lot larger while if you have a bigger kitchen, darker colors will help create a more intimate and cozy feeling.
Install New Fixtures
Replacing your old fixtures may seem like a minor renovation, but doing so can still affect the aesthetic of your kitchen area. For example, replacing the knobs on all of your cabinets and doors can do wonders. Upgrading your faucets is also a great idea–not only can it have a visual impact, but installing low-flow faucets can help make your kitchen more water-efficient as well.
These are three ideas for remodeling your kitchen which won’t cost you an arm and a leg but will still provide you with a high ROI. Find out how we can help you throughout the remodeling process by contacting us at JSB Home Solutions today.
