Three Tips for Remodeling Your Kitchen No Matter What Your Budget Is

by | Jul 29, 2019 | Construction & Maintenance

It’s not unusual to see homeowners on a tight budget requiring a kitchen makeover in order to sell their house. What’s unusual is some of the innovations these homeowners have added to their kitchens. Even if you’re on a budget, you can add some stylish enhancements to your kitchen. Follow these simple tips for the best kitchen remodeling in Wheaton on the lowest budget possible.


Add style to a tired or dated kitchen by removing upper cabinet doors and painting them bright white. Measure the cabinets and add doors with glass to one or two. Lighting is good, but under-cabinet lighting is even better and adds a modern touch. Cooks need all the bright light they can get. Under-cabinet lighting gives a cook that extra little bit he or she needs and can enhance the aesthetic value of your kitchen.


Two of the most expensive parts of kitchen remodeling are cabinets and counters. If new granite or quartz countertops aren’t in your budget, there are still a couple of things you can do. First, you can have your existing counters refinished. This involves sanding down and fixing any chips or cracks. Next, an acrylic coating is applied. Your counters will look good as new without the cost of a full replacement. If you want a change, consider butcher block counters. They come in colors from light to dark, and they give a kitchen a great look without the cost of quartz or granite. Another option is to install new faux granite or quartz countertops which are available from many suppliers. No one will ever know it’s not the real thing.


Lighting is important in a kitchen. You’ll need pendant lighting over the island or main food prep area, task lighting over the stove, and ambient lighting for the whole room. Updating or adding lighting fixtures usually isn’t too expensive, and can transform the look and feel of your kitchen.
