A new coat of paint can make all the difference in the kitchen. Plus, it completely changes the room without spending a great deal of money on it. You can make the walls of your kitchen vibrant and colorful for about $50 (cost with materials). You can also emphasize other features including cabinets or countertops. Or, you can create an entire theme for the kitchen, make everything red or in black and white colors. It is quite easy to take care of the painting process; even you can do it with minimum effort.

If you have hired a contractor, it is perhaps the best time to also paint the existing cabinets upgrading them along with the rest of the kitchen. Paint them with a few coats of enamel and use sandpaper to distress it to obtain that nice antique appearance but without those exorbitant antique prices. It is a technique that is extremely efficient, but it is best to have an expert to do it.

Spending only a few dollars you can add lovely accents and attractive touches to the finished look of the kitchen. Use floor mats to elegantly cover that unpleasant old flooring. Replace the old and worn plastic slat binds with a new fabric or bamboo for texture and color. The kitchen will suffer a major and visible transformation with a new faucet and twin sink. These can be found at affordable prices online. Plus, washing the dishes will be a lot easier. Your current kitchen hardware can be quickly replaced by any remodeling contractor.

Countertops

Warped and old chipped countertops can really ruin the otherwise nice look of the kitchen. Luckily, you can find new and modern counter surfaces at affordable prices.

Backsplash

Use mosaic or penny tiles to create exciting backsplash to protect the walls and to serve as an excellent focal point. Look around in stores to find something that you really like and it is within your price range.

Stretch your budget for remodeling by keeping those kitchen appliances that are still in good condition. There is no sense spending money on retiling and re-plumbing if it is not really necessary.
