Hi, Remodelaholics, I’m back to share some low-cost home improvement ideas with your from around the web. This month I’m focusing on projects that can change the look or function of your kitchen without taking a second mortgage. Just in case you missed it, check out last week’s post on refinishing cabinets.
When it comes to kitchen improvements, most of us tend to focus on the big-time changes: new appliances, different/better cabinets, updated flooring, upgraded countertops, or even entire construction projects that involve gutting spaces or bumping out walls. There comes a time in the life of every kitchen when those big changes have to happen. But, in the meantime, while you’re saving up to make costly updates, there are a few little things you can do to add charm and character to your kitchen. Changing out your window treatments, painting walls and/or cabinets, removing cabinet doors, installing new cabinet hardware, adding a tile backsplash, decluttering countertops, and refreshing linens are a few of those little things that come to mind.
One more inexpensive, easy update to make in a kitchen has really taken the blogosphere by storm, lately. Making over pantry doors from blah to beautiful is a fun trend that has the potential to add loads of character to any kitchen. Check out some of my favorites:
Aren’t those great! It makes me want to change up my pantry door!
