Recently we shared with you some tips and tricks regarding making your smaller kitchen feel larger, so today we felt it would be a good time to share some budget-friendly kitchen design trends.
When redesigning your Buffalo, NY kitchen, your budget might feel like an ever-constricting python that will splash cold water on your dream kitchen. It doesn’t have to be like that! Let’s go over a few budget-friendly design/remodeling choices you can make for your WNY kitchen.
4 Budget-Friendly Kitchen Design Ideas
Open Shelving – Spacious and Budget-Conscious
Cabinets can be one of the largest investments you make when going for a remodel, whether it be a partial or a full kitchen redesign. Choosing open shelving for your kitchen cabinetry can be a clever way to save a few bucks while also enhancing functionality and aesthetic. When you opt for open shelving on new cabinets, you skip the added cost of the doors!
Kitchen Cabinet Refacing
Do you like your current cabinet size and placement, but the style has you wanting more? Consider having the exteriors replaced while preserving the underlying structure. Resurfacing is not like painting or staining old cabinets, it’s a permanent solution like replacing cabinets. Resurfacing is a full remodel of your cabinets’ exterior.
Opting for resurfacing means your Buffalo NY kitchen redesign company will remove old doors, hinges, and trim and sand the boxes. New wood and finish will be applied to their structure. Then new doors, drawers, trim, and hardware are attached. If you want, you could have your old wooden doors substituted with laminate, for even more savings.
Laminate Kitchen Countertops for a High-End Look on a Budget
During your full kitchen remodel, instead of going for high-end stone, get a similar look from laminate and save! Laminate kitchen countertops are a cost-effective choice to have the look while not paying the price. With how advanced printing has become, laminate countertops can mimic the veins and patterns from naturally occurring stone and wood. Plus, you’ll have the freedom to select the color, pattern and texture of your new kitchen countertop.
Opt for Unique Kitchen Hardware and Accessories
Your kitchen is the beating heart of your home, and adding some accessories is one way to enhance the visual appeal without breaking the bank. For example, you can get creative with your cabinet handle choices, you could use a reflective silver handle to pair with a white cabinet. Swap out your faucet for one with a different look and/or finish to create a more elegant look. Hang up some art for an eye-catching theme to tie it all together. It’s your kitchen, make it a reflection of your personal tastes!
