Home Decorating: Kitchen on a Budget

You can have the best of budgets, the golden budget, that doesn’t take anything away from the fact that decorating a home can be trying. Even so, not having this golden budget shouldn’t keep you from having a lovely kitchen.

After all, the kitchen is the heart of your home, it’s a very important room where you receive your loved ones and you bring them together every day. This is why most people want this room to really shine and radiate warmth, love.

There’s a vast array of things you can do to your kitchen that will make a huge impact on the overall décor of your kitchen without touching the structure of it. For example, if you have wallpaper in place, remove it and give paint a try.

You also have the options of plaster, faux finish and textures, and glazes, every one of these goes very well in a kitchen and it adds charm, impact. The walls are your canvas; just remember to tie them to the floors and cabinets.

Your cabinets could also go through a little makeover; you can paint, stain or antique them. Painting wooden cabinets might sound off, but it’s much cheaper than just replacing them or even staining them.

At the end of the day, it’s your choice and you must follow your taste and what looks good for you. I just wanted to remind you that it’s an option that will dramatically change the appearance of your kitchen.

Another change available for you is hardware, the simplicity of changing door handles and drawer pulls can have the effect of a facelift, it can make old cabinets look like new. And when you mix this up with painted or stained cabinetry the result can be stunning!

Once again I remind you that it’s the little things that can have a great impact, so keep them in mind, don’t neglect them throughout this whole process because they can make a huge difference.

Keeping in mind that you don’t have to go top of the line to make significant changes to the appearance of your floors, I remind you that there are laminates that are inexpensive as well as peel and stick tiles that can yield remarkable results and give the impression of professional work. Peel and stick tiles can also be applied to existing countertops to make that extra improvement.

Now for the real scoop! Applying stainless steel PVC contact paper to appliances gives the instant, inexpensive stainless steel finish to your kitchen. This is how you magically update your kitchen in just a few minutes and needless to say it costs much less than replacing even one of those appliances.

These are just a few of the many ways you can improve, enhance, embellish, and make the kitchen you want a reality!
