Affordable Ways to Remodel Your Kitchen — guest post by Vera Miller
Are you sick and tired of seeing your kitchen like that? Are you not contented anymore on what you’ve seen in your kitchen? But the question is, how willing are you that the kitchen stay with the same design and structure? Are you willing to let it remain the same? Or are you going to do something in order to make it an almost brand new kitchen?
Just like in all walks of life, you need to do whatever it takes in order to attract people as you. If they see you wear the same style of attire over and over again, for sure they will get bored at you. However, they seem to be attracted once you started making some changes in yourself. Imagine that you wear a basketball shirt, hat, shorts, replica G-Shock watch and second hand shoes, do you think they will be attracted? Absolutely not, except those who are wearing almost the same thing like you.
What happens if you change your attire? Wearing a long sleeve, original jeans, Rolex watch and brand new shoes? Do you think they will be attracted this time? Of course, yes! They will be attracted because of the brand new look you have today. The same thing goes when you are going to look at your kitchen. Try to take your time in looking at your kitchen. Try to remember the last time your kitchen was revamped.
If it was a long time ago, do you think you are already contented with what you have in the kitchen?
If you are already contented with the kitchen you have, there’s no need for you to read this article and close the window. If you really feel that you need a makeover for your kitchen, it was suggested that you should continue reading this article once and for all. However, there are most people nowadays who are willing to shell out their pockets and buy brand new expensive stuff to remodel their respective kitchens once and for all. What happens if there are ways for you to revamp them into something attractive in your eyes, but in an affordable way? Do you think it would be possible?
In all walks of life, there’s nothing impossible. If you want to make things happen, you just simply do it, adjust from your mistakes and get better. You can apply this in the kitchen world, as long you have the willingness to do it once and for all. After all, there’s nothing to lose when you decide to do this for you and your family. What really matters is that you can save a lot of money from buying expensive furniture and other materials just to remodel your kitchen.
Here are some of the best and affordable ways for you to remodel your kitchen once and for all:
1 – Collectibles on the go
For sure, you really love collectibles right? Just like you remember having collectibles of action figures, game cards, video games or so, try to apply that in your kitchen. This will surely attract your family members and friends when they see collectibles around the kitchen. Some of the collectibles that you need to consider inside the kitchen are custom-made bowls, chinaware, and so on.
2 – Hardware swap
If your hardware within the kitchen is too old and having rusts already, it is better that you should replace it with new ones. One good example is by replacing knobs, pulls and bead boards with affordable and brand new ones. In this way, it might not be hard for you anymore to open kitchen cabinets. Not only that, it is simply almost brand new looking when you install them with brand new and affordable bead boards, pulls and knobs. How cool is that for you anyway? It may not really be enough, but it’s already a great start.
3 – Let your dishes breathe smoothly
You don’t want the dishes to be stored in a closed door cabinet or dish rack, do you? Of course not. Let the dishes breathe by putting them on the open rack. In that way, it is easy for you to pick dishes while preparing for the dinner table. Make sure that your dish rack is open and doesn’t have a close feature. Although there’s nothing wrong about having a closed dish rack, but it’s way better for you to have it opened.
4 – Lighting creativity
If you want your kitchen to be more creative than ever, you should consider lighting. Try to see if your lights are just old and rehashed ones. Don’t just simply buy an ordinary light bulb and “let there be light”. Instead, you’re going to be more creative by thinking outside of the box in making that light attractive for good. You can do some hanging lights around the corner, or just simply cover it with a cardboard with unique and elegant design.
5 – Combine old with the new
One last thing is that you can combine old with the new. It means that you have to retain the old features on the kitchen and combine them with new ones. For example, you want your old classical kitchen cabinet to remain the same. Just simply re-paint it with a new color that contrasts well with the others in your kitchen. Not only that, you can reuse and recycle old kitchen materials and turn them into new re-usable ones. This is what old ones can be combined into new ones and it’s really fantastic into your eyes.
This is something you need to learn about revamping or remodeling your kitchen for good. Now that you’ve known many ways to remodel your kitchen at an affordable price, it is time for you to take action. Reading and learning without taking action isn’t really worthy at all. If you have the desire to revamp your cooking empire, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to make it look attractive and beautiful once and for all. It’s all about creativity and thinking outside of the box for good.
