Sneaky Ways to Make your Kitchen look Way More Expensive

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

There is absolutely no denying that the kitchen is the focal point of any home. Prospective buyers need to be able to imagine themselves gathered around their friends and they also want to imagine themselves relaxing too. Achieving that dream kitchen can be expensive to say the least, but if you are willing to put the work in and if you follow the below steps then you’ll soon find that it is easier than ever for you to get it done under budget.

Choose a Luxurious Colour Palette

If you want to get the best result, then you need to look at the colours that luxury designers use. There’s a high chance that they are muted, or slightly off the primary colour. This could include using charcoal over black, or champagne tones instead of white. This will help you to bring out the true personality of the space and it will also make it much easier for you to achieve everything you have hoped for. Of course, you also want the texture to vary too, as this will add to the complexity of the room in general. The more layered and high-end you can go, the better. If you’re on a budget then go for raised patterns, high gloss and matte.

Reinvent Tired Cabinets

If you are unable to afford new cabinets then why not add some new hardware instead? Consider replacing the door pulls, hinges or even handles. When you are making your choice, it helps to make sure that they fit in the holes that are already there. If yours are too small then use wood putty, as this won’t shrink. Mixing metals should also be a consideration. A lot of people think that they should never mix colours, but this is not the case at all. If you have a chrome sink then you can still use brass for your appliances, so make sure that you keep that in mind when making your selection. If you have some broken appliances that would suit your new look then look into appliance repair.

Glass Doors

When it comes to your old and tired cabinets, it helps to add a new lick of paint. This can hide all kinds of blemishes, and it is a super affordable way for you to reinvent your kitchen. It’s also fairly easy for you to cut out the front panel on your existing cabinets and add glass instead. This will help you to go for that modern look and it will also brighten the room too.

Light Fittings

You might not have the budget to change out some of the architectural features that you have, but you might just have enough to change the light fittings. This can make a huge change to the room and it can also really bring out the personality of a room. If you want to get the best result out of your choice, then it helps to opt for a dimmer. This will allow you to control the mood lighting and it will also make it much easier to save energy.
