10 Ways To Make A Dated Kitchen Feel New On A Budget

1. Get Organized

Organized and decluttered kitchens can quickly feel new without spending any money. Throw away broken or expired items and donate useful but unwanted ones.

2. Embrace the Old and Retro

Play up the character of your kitchen. Rustic, cottage and midcentury modern styles are all becoming popular again.

3. Update the Hardware

It doesn't cost much to update the hardware on your kitchen cabinets, but it makes a big difference in how your kitchen looks overall.

4. Repaint the Cabinets

While it can be costly to replace cabinets, a simple fresh coat of paint over existing cabinets can drastically transform the look of your kitchen.

5. Install a Backsplash

Installing a tile backsplash is a great DIY project that will give your kitchen an eye-catching focal point.

6. Replace the Lighting Fixtures

Upgrade your kitchen lighting by replacing old and outdated fixtures with more contemporary ones that match your desired aesthetic.

7. Showcase Your Style

Instead of cabinets, opt for easy-to-install open shelving. This is a great way to create a sense of openness and visual interest in the kitchen.

8. Revamp the Sink

The kitchen sink is a focal point. A clean look may be achieved without a huge cost by replacing the kitchen faucet, adding a fashionable soap dispenser, and recaulking the sink.

9. Switch Your Small Appliances

A full kitchen renovation may require all new appliances, but replacing your toaster, coffee machine, kettle, or microwave will update your room for less.
