Remodeling your home can be a fun, but daunting task. From deciding what needs to be remodeled and what doesn’t to deciding how to go about each thing you want to remodel. In this article, I will go over a few things for both kitchen and bath remodeling.
Remodeling doesn’t necessarily mean that you need a lot of money so, let’s see a few fun ideas to add to your kitchen, without breaking the bank. So long as your kitchen isn’t outdated, this is the perfect solution for a low-budget remodel.
First the most simple, and obvious, paint. Painting a room can give it a completely new feel, and doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. A new coat of paint in the right color can make the room feel more open.
If you’ve got any open space it’s incredibly easy to add some shelving along the wall’s and turn your open space into more storage space, or you could even make your own simple serving station with a table and a couple of shelves.
The faucet is an inexpensive, yet expressive item in your kitchen. From a simple standard faucet to a lovely colorful design, your faucet can say a lot about you. Replacing your faucet with something that matches both you and your kitchen can make it pop!
Replacing your drawers knobs and handles can be inexpensive while giving your kitchen a completely new look. Drawer knobs and handles can also express your style from simple and elegant to funky and fun.
Replacing both your kitchen curtains and your curtain rod in your kitchen can be inexpensive while giving your kitchen a completely new vibe. Choosing a bright or light curtain color can give the room an open and fun feeling while choosing a darker color can make it seem smaller and more intimate. While choosing a curtain rod, the only thing you need to make sure of, other than it fitting your window, is that you like it!
If you have any seating in your kitchen then one inexpensive thing you can do is replace it. Keep in mind your budget and what kind of seating will fit in your kitchen. You can go rustic with just a bench along an open wall or simple with a couple of chairs and a small table. If you have a bar you can invest in getting a few bar stools, they can be inexpensive and there are a ton of different styles to choose from.
Keep in mind that just like with a kitchen, there are many things you can do to remodel your bathroom without spending everything in your wallet.
Just like with any other room in the house, painting the walls can completely change the vibe in the bathroom. If you aren’t into painting then you can wallpaper your bathroom. Whether you’ve decided to paint or wallpaper, both can be inexpensive, and express your style in a bold or simple way.
Yes, curtains. Replacing your bathroom curtains, if your bathroom has a window, can give your bathroom a different feel, don’t forget that that includes the curtain rod as well. While we are on the subject of curtains, anyone that has a bathroom shower curtain can easily replace that curtain as well. You can find any design under the sun for your new shower curtain and shower curtain rod.
No, you don’t have to replace it, but you can spruce it up by adding a bath mat or a pretty patterned carpet or rug. You can get a rug to match your personality or to match a theme for your bathroom, either way, you can do it inexpensively and it doesn’t take any time at all.
Sometimes, especially in small bathrooms, storage is hard to find. A few baskets and jars can solve that quickly enough! Just get a simple side table and you’ve got the all you need. Add the basics in your jars (cotton balls, Q-tips, etc…) and toilet paper in your basket for a cute and out of the way design.
