5 ways to revamp your kitchen without breaking the bank

28 Mar 2017

Renovating your kitchen doesn’t have to be an expensive escapade, with a bit of imagination and DIY savvy you can give your kitchen new life and a fresh look.

Franke shares 5 ways to renovate your kitchen on a budget…

1. Respray cabinet doors

You don’t have to install new kitchen cabinet doors to give them a new look.

Respraying the doors with a fresh spring colour can completely transform the overall look and feel of your kitchen at a quarter of the price of replacing them. 

2. Replace old door handles

It’s incredible how much a new handle can transform the look of the cabinet. If you’re having your cabinets resprayed, use the opportunity to replace the handles as well.

You’ll be amazed at the wide range of handles that are available at your local hardware store so stop by to find handles that suit your taste.

3. Refurbish kitchen countertops

If you’re looking to add a completely new look to your countertops, don’t replace them entirely (this can be costly), hire a specialist to add a stylish veneer right on top of your old countertop.

Veneers come in all styles, from upmarket granite to a more casual wooden look - these are a much more affordable way to renovate your kitchen countertops.

4. Revolutionise kitchen lighting

Light up your kitchen with stylish new light fittings that match your new and improved renovated kitchen.

Decorative lighting fixtures can add a sense of elegance or modernise the look and feel of your kitchen without costing a fortune.

5. Add a fresh coat of paint

One simple and affordable way to breathe new life into your kitchen is to give it a fresh coat of paint.

Choose your favourite complementary colours or a stunning colour that stands beautifully on its own and give your kitchen a new look. You’ll be amazed at just how much this can change the style of your kitchen.

Pick 1 or try all 5 of these ideas to revamp your kitchen on a budget, then step back and take in the beautiful, fresh look of your new kitchen.
