But you don’t need to spend a fortune to have a modern and functional kitchen. There are plenty of cost effective ways to update your kitchen and ultimately help add value to your home.
Update cabinet handles – Sometimes little things can make a big difference. Cabinet handles can instantly giveaway a kitchen’s age, as styles and materials tend to change quite frequently. There are plenty of new and modern cabinet handles to choose from, available in all price ranges, so you’re sure to find a style that suits your kitchen and home décor.
Replace the splashback – If you’re looking for a more dramatic change for your kitchen then a feature wall or a colourful new splashback can help provide the fresh new look you’re after. There are plenty of materials that can be used for a splashback such as tiles, glass, stone, laminate, mirrors and more.
Replace cabinet doors – This is one of the easiest ways to update your kitchen and is much cheaper then ripping out the entire kitchen and starting from scratch.
Install new benchtops – If your benchtops are looking a little worse for wear then new ones could be in order. Natural stones, timber and stainless steel are all popular options but if you want to save money then laminate is not only affordable but it is also versatile, low maintenance and it can still look very good.
Buy new kitchen appliances – A unique fridge or oven can become a kitchen’s major drawcard, and if you replace old appliances with brand new ones then they will likely have more energy or water savings features that will help keep your household bills down.
