5 tips to redesign your kitchen on a small budget!

The kitchen, the heart of the home! 

In the Kitchen, everything happens! The family discusses and prepares meals, eats and clears the week’s paperwork. It might as well be designed to meet the needs of the whole family. 

For many of us, the idea of a kitchen renovation can be a real headache but it’s not always as complicated and expensive as we might think! 

Renovating your kitchen on a small budget and with little time is possible with “homestaging” (quick and inexpensive renovation) ! 

Take notes, here are 5 tips to redesign this room without ruining yourself

1 – What to keep, what to sell?

Before starting any work, it’s important to ask ourselves those two questions: What should we keep? What should we sell?

With this single action, several hundred dollars can be saved. 

Unclutter the kitchen space!

The coffee machine, plastic containers from our last delivery, spices, small appliances, clutter can quickly build up in the kitchen. 

Choose cupboard storage with suitable boxes, baskets or space-saving modules to integrate into your kitchen furniture. 

Take the opportunity to sort it out! 

2 – Relook the kitchen units

It is THE most popular solution to renovate your kitchen without changing everything. 

In a few hours the kitchen comes back to life under your paintbrush. 

Change the handles of the Kitchen cabinets and drawers. It is THE detail that will make all the difference in embellishing your room.

Finally, opt for a more modern sink. It is a major decorative element, which will make your dishes sessions a lot more pleasant.

3-Pimp your backsplash!

Aesthetic aside, a countertop can quickly be damaged.

With the food preparation, the dishes cleaning and household products, it’s a high traffic area. Hence the importance of using though materials that require little maintenance. 

The most economical solution for changing the worktop is still ceramic! 

Ceramic is very easy to install and is very resistant to heat, stain and humidity. 

5 – Use accessories in your kitchen for a better look
