It can be challenging and expensive to remodel a kitchen, but substantial cosmetic changes can be made with just the help of an electrician and painter.
- Figure out exactly what needs to be done. Can you work with your current appliances, cabinets and fixtures or is it time for a full-scale remodel?
- Create and stick to a budget with realistic estimates for each expense.
- Painting kitchen walls is a quick and inexpensive way to update. Designers advise clients to bring in colors that appear in nearby rooms or chose a neutral palette. The kitchen décor should fit in with the rest of the house.
- A new table and chairs can update a kitchen’s look. Be sure to choose seating that is comfortable, durable and easy to clean.
Finally take the time to make the right choices and be patient. What matters is the end result, not how long it took to get there.
