You can get a fabulous look with these budget kitchen decorating tips.
Just because you don't have a lot of money doesn't mean that you can't pull off a designer look in your kitchen.
Successfully decorating a kitchen on a budget simply means that you have to shop frugally and add a bit of DIY!
Know Where To Shop
Budget kitchen decorating requires a tight watch on your spending, but in order to pull off a new look in the kitchen,
you're going to want to buy lots of accessories. A great place to shop for kitchenware is yard sales and consignment stores.
You can get items that are practically brand new for pennies on the dollar! Of course, it will take a bit of time and effort
since you have to shop these venues frequently and wait for the perfect items, but the savings will be well worth it!
Make A Drastic Change With Paint
You can get the most amount of change for the least amount of money with paint so your budget kitchen decorating plan should
include this versatile medium. A fresh coat of a splashy color on your walls will make a drastic change and if your cabinets
are dull and dingy think about painting those too. There's so many things you can do with faux finishes these days and you can
get free faux painting lessons at your local Home Depot so the price is right for kitchen budget decorating.
Snoop around in your basement, garage and attic for some forgotten items that might go well with your new kitchen décor.

Make Your Own
You can save a lot of money in your kitchen decorating budget by making your own curtains, tablecloths and napkins.
Just buy some matching material and a pattern and you will have a great matching set for a fraction of the cost.
Unless you are an experienced seamstress, I would stick to a simple curtain pattern which can be as easy as making a fold and
sewing a tunnel to insert a curtain rod in. And don't be limited to fabrics either - you know those cute jars with oil and peppers
inside? I bet you could make one of those pretty easy. You can use glue to turn your current canisters into new ones by
adhering items that match your new décor.
Cover It Up
Budget kitchen decorating doesn't allow for new flooring or counters so if there are flaws in those areas, I suggest you cover it up!
You can make ugly or damaged flooring disappear by putting down throw rugs that compliment your décor. An ugly or damaged counter
top can be disguised with lots of accessories including plenty of cutting boards that sit right out on the counter.
