A new kitchen can instantly create more storage and even add money to the value of your property. However, if you don’t have thousands of pounds to spend on a new design, there are money-saving alternatives. Here’s how to get that perfect kitchen on a budget.
1. Find a contractor that provides good value for money
Opting for a cheap kitchen contractor will almost certainly save you money. However, if you skimp on service, you could end up paying more in the long run so watch out. A good place to start is to contact your local Trading Standards office and inquiring about the best professionals in your area who will be able to redecorate your kitchen and provide you with excellent customer service. Remember, you will need a contractor who is able to carry out the job on time and within budget.
2. Install new counter tops
You might not have the funds to fit brand new kitchen units but installing new worktops can instantly transform the look of your kitchen space overnight. Pick a contemporary style that catches the eye as soon as you walk into the kitchen and a design that reflects the rest of the style you are planning to incorporate into your kitchen. Laminate counter tops are among the cheapest materials out there, and a good contractor will be able to install the items in one day.
3. Create a feature wall
Another quick tip that won’t break the bank is to create a feature wall. Pick a wall and decorate it with wallpaper, canvas art or wall decals and instantly create a new style that you’ll love. If you opt for wallpaper, make sure you choose a design that is heat and steam resistant otherwise it will eventually peel off and need to be replaced. Graphic designs, geometric shapes or patterns work best but experiment with different designs to find the right one for you.
