10 Inexpensive Updates for Your Kitchen

By Just Heather |

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen — breakfast, lunch, dinner, supervising numerous snacks — so it doesn’t take long for the look to get stale.

Unfortunately, everything in there is just so big that I’m kinda stuck with it. We don’t have much wall space to simply update decor. And, we won’t be updating appliances until they completely die on us.

That’s why I was so thrilled to see this $700 kitchen remodel. It’s still out of my budget, but it did give me a few ideas.

“For a cheap renovation, look for ways you can utilize what’s already in your kitchen, and pick projects you can delve into yourself without paying a contractor,” says Katy Carter. My head has been swimming with ideas ever since.

Check out these small changes that could make a big difference:

    I saw the penny thing on Pinterest forever ago and pinned it. I’ve been trying to talk the fiancé into it ever since. He’s not sold, but I will have a penny floor in my house someday. Maybe not this one because we’re planning on moving, but someday, in some house, there will be a penny floor. And I worked it out to be like $0.36/sq. ft. or something like that, not including sealant. Not too bad!

    The penny floor looks like fun but not something I’d be able to talk my husband into. I was thinking of doing the dinning room table instead.

    We just re-did our kitchen. I sanded & painted the cabinets and I love them.It’s amazing what a coat of paint and new knobs on the doors can do for old cabinets even a new coat of paint on the walls. I hated being in the kitchen now I just can’t wait for it to be done.

    There are also new floors that you can just roll over the old one and not have to worry about gluing them down. The cabinets, appliances and baseboards hold it in place.
