When it comes to renovating your home, there are definite differences between which upgrades you need and which upgrades you want. There are an infinite number of products available, and many of those tempting upgrades can be pricey. When working within a budget, the first step is simple: decide what you can afford and what you cannot.
A good rule of thumb is to designate available funds for kitchen and bathroom improvements. These areas create more resale value when upgraded, giving you more bang for your buck.
Ready to revamp your kitchen? Take a look at these three kitchen design ideas that will help jazz up your home.
Paint the cabinets
Consider adding a pop of color to kitchen cabinets, such as a periwinkle blue or pale yellow. This upgrade is not only inexpensive, it also adds a unique quality to your home. Make sure to note the name of the paint shade you use so that if you decide to add trim in the future, you can match the color easily.
Add task lighting
If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, it may be useful to add some under-the-cabinet lighting. The idea behind this is to illuminate the countertop to make food preparation easier on the eye. If you do want to add task lighting, consider installing the lights closer to the front of the cabinet to ensure the light is focused on the counter and not the tile backsplash.
Install deep drawers
It can be a puzzle game trying to jam large pots into a cabinet with height constraints. Installing deeper drawers is useful not only for storing pots and pans, but also for relocating small appliances from countertops, such as toasters and blenders.
Upgrading your home doesn’t necessarily require complicated projects. Certain design elements can be incorporated that are trendy, budget-friendly, and time conscious. Whether you’re looking to add a minor installation or create a complete makeover, Progressive Builders can help you make a bold statement in your home.
