Budget Kitchen Decorating – Who Knew it Was Possible?

Let’s face it- the American economy has seen better days. But that doesn’t mean that we should let our homes fall into disrepair or that we should put off renovation projects that can be done easily and inexpensively. In fact, I’d argue that investing a bit into your home now is a great way to increase your home’s value, whether you’re trying to sell now or plan on selling sometime down the road. And, of course, updating the look of your kitchen is one of the best ways to add value- and perhaps one of the most affordable.

One easy way to update the look of your kitchen is to replace the kitchen cabinet hardware. Adding cabinet knobs or pulls with a modern finish such as chrome or nickel can add a contemporary look to even the most outdated of kitchens. With hundreds of options to choose from for under $4, homeowners can outfit their entire kitchen with new kitchen cabinet hardware for under $300. Perhaps most importantly, homeowners can install their new hardware on their own, without having to spend money on costly contractors.

Another affordable kitchen remodeling idea that is easy to implement is to add a cute baker’s rack to your kitchen. Ideal for homes with a country flavor, baker’s racks can cost anywhere from just over $100 to several hundred dollars, depending on the style. These small cabinets can serve several purposes in your kitchen. Firstly, they can create additional storage space which will instantly reduce clutter and improve the look of your space. Secondly, they can are an inexpensive way to fill your kitchen’s empty space. Lastly, baker’s racks can be taken with you if and when you decide to move.

Lastly, one of my most favorite budget kitchen decorating ideas is to replace your boring artwork (or add artwork to your currently bare walls) with photos that you’ve taken over time, whether they be of the family, of nature scenes or of anything else that strikes you as fabulous. It’s easy to find inexpensive frames that can enhance your photos, and to arrange them in eye-catching designs and unique displays.

There’s no question that American’s spend a great deal of time in their kitchens- so it makes sense to have a nice one. For only a few hundred dollars, you can dramatically improve the look of your kitchen, and reap the benefits not only in your home’s increased value, but in the added enjoyment that you’ll have in the space. Now, what could be more worthwhile than that?
