House re-do projects are expensive and kitchens seem to cost the most. The cost for kitchen renovations can range from $5,000 to $100,000. If your kitchen budget is less, consider these alternatives. They require more creativity but give you a unique kitchen without the cost. You’ll save money and resources.
Kitchen Re-Do You Can Do
- Replace :: replace kitchen cabinet doors. Look at architectural salvage stores for glass doors and replace.
- Add :: add trim and paint background a different color to add visual interest.
- Swap :: trade out dated looking knobs and pulls for classic styles.
- Paint :: paint cabinets rather than replacing. Many old cabinets are made of solid wood. Use a primer first and then paint.
Kitchen renovations don’t have to cost a fortune. Spending less money means you’ll have to be more creative but it’s worth it.
