Cheap Kitchen Update Ideas

Everyone would love to have an amazing kitchen, but not everybody can afford to hire a designer. By using some basic ideas, you too can get the exact same fabulous looking kitchen but without having to spend a lot of money.

To get going, see if you own some copper or bronze items or cookware like pots, platters, or even cups. Aneasy idea is to put them on display. Position them on a kitchen island or counter for an attractive and easy look.

Including a small table lamp on the kitchen countertop will have many uses. Although it will provide some light, it also can also function as decorating piece. Pick a lamp to provide color, either with the base or the lampshade. The illumination from the lamp will give the kitchen a relaxed feel and can even be a nightlight.

Another basic and affordable way to decorate is by displaying unique dishtowels, several cookbooks or decorative platters. You can fill bare wall space by hanging plates as decorative items. Painting the walls a neutral shade is quick and quite easy. This alone is actually the quickest method to transform the look of any area! Adding a vase of fresh flowers or a basket of fresh fruit on the counter will add color to your kitchen. If your kitchen area has good, natural sunlight, add some small planters with herbs. Not only will you have fresh herbs for cooking, but you will also have some beautiful plants to show off.

It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do for kitchen chairs or barstools. You can also add cushions if you don’t have any or if you do, switch them out with a different style or color. Don’t forget about the windows! A simple and very inexpensive option is to add window scarves. Place holdbacks or either end of each window and drape a sheer curtain scarf over it. You can choose a neutral color or go with color!

In conclusion, you don’t have to spend a lot of money or time to get a beautifully decorated kitchen. Simply be creative and use materials you actually have or you can purchase a couple of pieces to add style and elegance to your kitchen.
