Inexpensive Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

Everyone seems to want a new kitchen these days. Unfortunately not everyone has the money for a full-blown, replace everything, remodeling job. There are some simple, low cost jobs you can do or have done to help make your kitchen look These include projects as easy as repainting walls and cabinets, changing cabinet doors or even knobs and pulls. Also, consider looking for inexpensive alternative materials for countertops and floors.

Inexpensive diy kitchen remodeling ideas

When changing the look of your kitchen, it is not always necessary to knock down walls or install new appliances. The first inexpensive idea is to simply repaint. Even the cleanest kitchens get dingy and grimy after years of cooking. A new coat or two of paint can do wonders for the appearance and feel of your room. You can also use color to enhance certain features & downplay others, or to give the room a feeling of openness. Just remember-light colors make a room appear smaller. Dark colors make a room feel smaller and cozier and are best for a large room with good lighting.

Another place for easy diy remodeling is the cabinets. You could repaint them, or change the doors. You could add glass inserts in the doors, which are great for adding a feel of spaciousness to a room. Even changing the knobs and pulls on the cabinets can add personality and interest.

Inexpensive professional kitchen remodeling ideas

Certain remodeling jobs, like countertops and floors, you may not feel comfortable doing yourself, so you hire a professional contractor or kitchen remodel-er. Everyone thinks that this has to be very expensive option, but that's not always the case. There are some things you can do to cut down the costs. First, consider moving or refinishing the cabinets instead of replacing. Unless your cabinets are in bad shape, there's no real need to get rid of them. Second, instead of using granite for your countertops, use laminate. The look is similar, but the cost difference is significant. Floors are the same. Instead of linoleum flooring, use vinyl, which won't probably last as long (hey-you're trying to save money), but looks just as good. Granite tiles are also a more inexpensive choice.

The third way you can save money on your kitchen remodel is to have the contractor install new lighting fixtures and compact florescent bulbs. These will lighten up any room, and a change in lighting can be a very nice change in atmosphere.
