Curious About Kitchens? Ideas For Dcor

Feb 15, 2008
Decorating your kitchen can be a very rewarding experience even if you are decorating on a tight budget. There is a difference between decorating your kitchen on a budget and using cheap decorations. If you use your imagination and a little creativity, you can transform your kitchen into a room that you absolutely love without spending a fortune. If you are curious about how you can decorate your kitchen, so that it will fit your needs and lifestyle on a budget, here are some suggestions to help you get started.

Start With the Cabinets, Walls and Floors: Even if you move into an old home that has a very small and inadequate kitchen, there are things that you can do to it to make it more functional and more up to date. Start with the paint, the floors and the cabinetry. These are often the three things that make a kitchen look more dated than anything else in the room. If you find that your cabinetry is too dark, then consider painting them in a lighter color or re-staining them. It does not take a lot of time or money to update your cabinets in this way. After you have finished repainting your cabinets, install new hardware for a cheap and easy update. Flooring will also outdate your kitchen. Old laminate and broken tile can really make your kitchen look worn out. If you do not have a lot of money to spend on flooring, then consider installing new laminate. You will be surprised at all of the colors and patterns that laminate flooring comes in these days. You can even get laminate that looks like wood and tile and it is easy to install and inexpensive. Of course, the color on your walls in your kitchen can also be updated quite inexpensively. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for any room of your home.

What About Appliances? Many homeowners have outdated appliances that need an update as well. You remember the old avocado green and gold refrigerators of the 70s-- believe it or not these types of appliances are still out there. Fortunately, you can often find new appliances in updated colors at local outlets stores. This will help you save a bundle when you want to redecorate your kitchen on a budget. Not only are these new appliances great-looking, but they are also very energy-efficient, which will save you money in the long run as well.
