A dull kitchen can make an appealing home look unfinished. Homebuyers often look far beyond the kitchen’s functionality. They want it to look smart. A few changes to your kitchen can make it gleam and even increase the value of the home.
That being said, here are a few kitchen renovation ideas that will transform your kitchen without breaking the bank.
Add a Tile Surround/Splash Back
One of the great additions to the kitchen comes in the form of tiles. Tiles are always in fashion and can be added along the worktop to not only add an appealing appearance but also protect the walls from water and messy accidents. Tiles ideally present a chance to show some creativity as the final result is entirely up to you.
Fit a New Worktop
Changing those out of date and dull worktops for a new design is one of the most effective ways to transform your kitchen. If you do not want to change the cupboards’ layout, the measuring is already done. Most worktops are just screwed from the inside of the cabinets. You can then add a touch of silicone sealant and completely change the look of the kitchen overnight.
Install a New Sink
If you intend to get a new worktop, then you may want to consider to install a new sink as well. Even a bargain sink will appear shiny and appealing and will instantly lend your kitchen a new look. A new set of taps will certainly extend this, and while at it, consider stripping out the crusty, leaking waste pipe and fit a new one. Even for the novice, installing a new waste pipe will just take a few minutes.
Refinish The Cabinet Doors
If your cabinet doors are made of wood, either varnished or painted, you can consider bringing them down and refinishing them with a new coat of paint, stain or varnish. You will find an array of suitable paints, stains and varnishes at your local DIY store. Installing a 21st-century handle style to your draws and doors will ideally make your kitchen look and feel like new.
Install a Laminate Floor
This is another excellent way of adding functionality and style to a kitchen. Laminate floors are resistant to water and are very easy to clean. However, you should consider a darker finish as they are harder to stain.
With these simple kitchen renovation ideas, you will have a functional and great looking kitchen, without spending a fortune.
