How to Remodel Your Kitchen on a Budget

If it’s time for a kitchen remodel, you may be nervous about how much it’s going to cost. Here are some tips to keep your expenses down.

Paint Your Cabinets White

If you have outdated cabinetry but want to save on the cost of updating all your cabinet faces, consider painting your cabinets white. Bright white is clean and stunning and can make older cabinet designs look more modern.

Install Under-Cabinet Lighting

If you have good tile or a pretty backsplash that isn’t getting its time in the sun, think about installing under-cabinet lighting.

This sounds like it would be expensive, but it’s relatively affordable considering the dramatic impact it makes for the cost. Install the lights in the areas you use most for food prep and cooking to make it both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Use Remnants If Your Heart Is Set On Granite

If you love the look of granite countertops but want to trim the cost, consider using remnants from granite supply yards. Often, it’s next to impossible to tell that a granite countertop is a remnant stone once it’s installed.

Use Peel-and-Stick Stone

Do you like the look of natural stone kitchen islands? They’re gorgeous but using real river rock or other stone can be costly, especially if you’re not installing it yourself.

Many home improvement stores offer lightweight peel-and-stick stones that look completely real, allowing you to change the look of your kitchen island in an afternoon.

Don’t Move Your Plumbing

Moving your plumbing can tack on thousands of dollars to your kitchen remodeling project. Instead, work with a kitchen remodel expert to work around your existing plumbing.
