Easy Kitchen Reno - Cressy & Everett Real Estate

If you're preparing to put your house on the market among other St. Joseph homes for sale, you know the kitchen is a vital part of daily living. From preparing meals, entertaining, or helping with homework, your kitchen sees a lot of traffic. If your kitchen cabinets desperately need a makeover, but your budget is tight, renovate to provide an instant lift.  

Easy Ways to Renovate Your Outdated Kitchen

Every homeowner has a personal vision for every room in the house. New kitchen cabinets, upgraded appliances, and a complete makeover can cost thousands of dollars. When you cannot afford your dream kitchen, implement easy, low-cost changes to refresh and upgrade the area. Small changes can make a significant impact on your kitchen's overall appearance.

  • Stain Your Cabinets Again: Sanding down and applying a new stain color is one way to revitalize your kitchen cabinets. The process does require hard work. The result is an instant change of appearance in your dull, outdated cabinets.

  • Get Painting: You don't have to paint your cabinets to transform your kitchen space. Use complementary colors to paint the walls, backsplash, island, and trim. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders on an old, outdated kitchen.

  • Change Handles and Knobs: Old, chipped wooden knobs or dull metal handles are an unpleasant sight. Upgrade your kitchen cabinets with new matching knobs and handles for an easy renovation.

  • Add or Change the Backsplash: Your kitchen's backsplash protects your wall from splashes. Over time, the backsplash may simply look worn. Changing or adding a backsplash can revitalize the area.

  • Change Your Lighting: Add or change your kitchen's light fixtures to create an inviting space. Outdated light fixtures can show your kitchen's age. Today, kitchen lights come in a wide range of styles and colors. Change your current fixtures or consider adding hanging lights over highly used areas. A light directly over the island or kitchen table has many practical benefits. When you change your light fixtures, upgrade your switch panels to match your new kitchen style.

  • Shelving Space: Remove an upper cabinet to replace with shelves. Or place shelves in areas of wasted space. From plants to other ornamental embellishments, adding shelves allows you to decorate your kitchen in your unique style.

  • Flooring: Replacing your old, chipped tiles, or dull linoleum with wood flooring will change your entire kitchen. For extra color, add decorative area rugs that match your wallpaper or paint.

  • New Curtains: Do not overlook small changes. Adding new, lighter curtains provides better natural lighting for your kitchen.
