Changing your kitchen shouldn’t have to break your back or your budget.
Here are some of our favorite tips which are easy on the hammer and the budget See how creative you can be!
Use That Empty Space! The upper shelves of bookcases or bakers racks or even cabinets can be used for candles, family pictures, fancy bowls or larger ornaments in odd number groupings of 1, 3 or 5 pieces.
Add A Border wallpaper borders are easy to put up and can add color and interest. You can use them at the top of the wall or go with a less traditional use underneath the cabinets. Use them at chair rail height to break up long walls. An even less expensive (but more labor intensive) alternative is to use stencils and paint.
Cabinets Redoing your kitchen cabinet design can make a huge change in your kitchen. If you can afford to have new cabinets put in, consider changing the configuration for maximum efficiency and effect. If you can\'t, you can change the look of your cabinets with simple and inexpensive methods, or you can have them entirely resurfaced and they will be like new.
Rugs Can Be Decorative And Practical Changing the look of your floor with a rug can work in the kitchen too. Selecting heavy rugs or using a special padding underneath to reduce movement would be especially recommended when using rugs on hard, slippery surfaces.
