Kitchen Makeovers On A Budget: Creating A Bold Kitchen
Let’s do some trial and error of kitchen makeovers on a budget in order to remove a boring and usual kitchen and welcome a bright and bold one. With a few easy projects and one weekend, you’ll be able to have a whole new kitchen for less than $1,000.
Boring and Basic Kitchen
Before doing some kitchen makeovers on a budget, you can see how boring and annoying this kitchen design. This kitchen features ok cabinets and appliances, but it’s devoid of any real character. A few creative moves ramp up this room’s personality. Assuming you already own a few basics, such as glue, thread, and painter’s masking tape, these projects should cost less than $1,000.
Let’s see what we can do with only less than $1,000. Just a couple of yards of playful floral-print fabric, which we used on the window shade, pendent shade, and pillow, inspired a new color palette for the kitchen and a brighter outlook. The transformation is dramatic, but it only took a few simple projects to add a lot of personality.
Red Hot Kitchen Island
You can start your project by building red hot Kitchen Island. Create your own storage-savvy kitchen island by placing two unfinished dressers back-to-back beneath a white-stained solid-core door. Use screws to hold the pieces together and a coat of polyurethane sealer to protect the surface from spills and splatters. For extra pizzazz, add a flower stencil to the drawers. It may take you a couple of hours to cut out a stencil pattern similar to this one, which was inspired by the floral-print fabric, but dabbing on the paint is super-fast and no artistic skills required.
Simple SInk Skirt
Continue your project by providing this simple sink skirt. For a contemporary-country touch, replace under-sink doors with a skirt mounted to the cabinet frame with hook-and-loop tape. This skirt is a single panel with an inverted pleat that’s embellished with glass buttons.
Pretty Painted Backsplash
Pretty painted backsplash will also create a different and eye-catching look to your kitchen. Striping the original white backsplash in this kitchen with alternating broad red bands and slim olive stripes adds bold scale to the space, uniting the more intricate fabric pattern and the solid red island.
New Look for Lighting
New look for lighting is needed to boost the appearance of the kitchen. You can give a pendant shade a personality boost by covering it with fabric. Attach the fabric with spray adhesive, tuck the edges under, and secure with fabric glue. This technique looks best with a nonlinear pattern or a solid; it’s too frustrating to try to line up stripes on a tapered shade.
Bright and Bold Kitchen Makeover
For finalizing your kitchen makeovers on a budget, you can complete it with comfy seating. Freshen up an unfinished stool with white paint. To add comfort for the cook, finish with a skirted seat cushion and lumbar pillow. Now you’ve had a wonderful bold kitchen that will color your days.
