Want to update your kitchen but have a tight budget? We have put together some tips on how you can give your kitchen a revamp for a reasonable price.
There’s nothing better than a brand-new kitchen – but what about if you're on a budget? Never fear, budget kitchen renovations can be done and they can be done well!
why a kitchen renovation is worth the investment
We all know the kitchen is the focal point of the home. It’s the heard and social hub for most households. The influx of daily traffic causes wear and tear and as the central point of the home it’s important to keep this area in tip top condition. But creating a comfortable, functional and stylish area to gather the family, entertain and cook can be achieved on a budget.
An inexpensive kitchen renovation can add a surprising amount of value to your home when you are looking to sell and as an added bonus, sprucing up the kitchen may be just the thing you need to reinvigorate your passion for cooking!
firstly, you need to determine your budget
A kitchen renovation doesn’t mean a complete rebuild. Before you start the project, work out exactly how much you want to spend and work backwards from there. Kaboodle kitchens afford you the luxury of buying everything separately, so you can build your new kitchen over time as you save – keeping lump costs down.
If you've already installed kaboodle cabinets in your kitchen then it may be a case of giving your doors and panels a facelift with a new colour or door profile. For a quick refresh; replace your handles. We have a great range of on trend handles to choose from and you could upgrade your existing kaboodle hardware to our soft close or push to open hinges! You could even replace your old benchtop. The smallest changes can make it feel like you've had a complete kitchen renovation.
update your benchtop
Our extensive range of benchtops tick all the boxes when it comes to finding a style that works for your space. From marble-look benchtops, to timber and stone benchtops, you’ll find a material that works with the aesthetic of your home.
update your doors and panels
We have a large variety of on trend door and panel colours to choose from, so if you have an existing kaboodle kitchen, or your door sizes align with our offering, then updating your drawer fronts is a great way to dramatically change the style of your kitchen.
You could choose a sleek matt black like our molasses v for a modern style, or a timber-look woodgrain such as hazelnut v for a country feel. All this can be done quickly (and painlessly) by simply picking up new doors and panels!
other budget kitchen ideas
Inject some colour by adding a bright splashback, add a focal point with a new wall clock or change the ambience of the room with some new lighting. These styling items are easy to change and once again can be added over time instead of buying them all at once.
