Would you like to redo your kitchen? Is money tight? You don’t have to think that your finances have to totally stop you from making some small decorating and remodeling changes in your kitchen. In fact, if you are smart you can make quite a few inexpensive changes. Plus, when you are finished you might find that these changes have actually given your entire room a totally different look.
You can bring new life to any room by changing the color of the room. This can easily be done through paint.
You can paint one wall to change the look of the room or go ahead and paint the entire room.
When painting a kitchen, consider colors that will not only match your décor but also are colors that you will enjoy.
You can make old and drab looking cabinets look new again by adding a few stencils to them. Once you add the stencil onto the cabinet door, consider applying a shiny glaze over top of it and over the background of most of the cabinet door, too, for extra shine
Change the doorknobs of your cabinets. This is an even simpler act than applying stencils to the cabinet doors and will give your cabinets a new life.
Hang new art pieces
Replace some of your favorite pictures or favorite knick knacks with new ones. These can be bought at low prices at thrift stores or even yard sales. Plus, you can find unique items, too.
Hang up new curtains
Just adding a new pair of curtains to a room can give it a new look and feel.
Add a new throw rug
Just like new curtains can give your room a new look, a new rug can help give a tired floor new appeal, as can a good waxing.
Consider purchasing a new energy star dishwasher
This may sound like a luxury purchase. Yet, if your old dishwasher isn’t an energy star one, you are wasting three times the amount of water you could be saving if you bought an energy star one.
Being on a budget is no fun. It is also no fun waiting to tackle those entire do it yourself plans that you have around the house. Luckily, you can still do some do it yourself jobs around the house such as redoing your kitchen while staying on a budget.
