Update Your Custom Kitchen With These Budget Friendly Tips

A Kitchen is, without a doubt, a very important part of a home. When you’re getting a custom built home, you’ll most likely put a lot of thought into what your kitchen will look like. Unfortunately, though, kitchens have a tendency to lose their spark. They get messy and are seen merely as places of function, rather than being aesthetically pleasing as well. There are many ways to refresh a kitchen space without breaking the bank or spending a great deal of time on a new project. Update your kitchen on a budget by doing some of the following. 

For Pops of Color

Add a Rug

While a rug might not immediately come to mind when you think of a kitchen, adding a small one in a space where you tend to stand a lot can add a nice touch of color and a comfortable, homey feel. It’s best to keep a rug away from major food preparation areas in case of spills, but one in front of the refrigerator or kitchen sink can look especially nice. 

A Fresh Coat of Paint

Whether it be the walls or the cabinets, a new color or a fresh coat of paint to one that’s faded with time is a great way to freshen up your space. 

Update Hardware

Cabinet Handles

There are so many styles and finishes to choose from. For an update, be sure to take into consideration the already-existing style of your kitchen so new handles don’t look out of place. For an especially fun look, consider getting a number of handle styles in the same finish for variety and cohesion all at once. 

A New Faucet

A faucet is something that’s easily overlooked, but if it’s cool, can stand out in a kitchen. Instead of having one that blends in, have people take notice by replacing yours in favor of one that makes a statement. 


Art on the Walls

While kitchens tend to be places that are more for function rather than surrounding, there’s no rule that says you can’t achieve both. Don’t let your love of art stop the moment you enter your kitchen — a blank wall may be waiting for you to hang up a painting or print. Bonus point if it’s cooking/baking related! 

Formal Dishware 

Many people have their dishes for fancy occasions tucked away, only to be seen by the light of day once a year, if even that. If dishes are really that lovely, shouldn’t they be showing? Whether you install a shelf for fancy wine and cocktail glasses or let your dishes peek through frosted glass panels, they will definitely add to your kitchen space.
