Remodel Your Kitchen and Bath on a Budget

Two of the most popular rooms for home makeovers are the kitchen and bath. However, these can be pricey ventures. A minor kitchen remodel can hover around $22,000, while a bathroom can be around $16,000. Here are some alternatives that will give you a fresh, modern look without breaking the bank:

  • Refinishing or re-facing the fronts of cabinets and replacing knobs and drawer pulls can give cabinets a fresh new look
  • A cost-effective approach to countertops might include solid surface materials such as granite, Silestone® or ceramic tiles
  • A fresh coat of wall paint in modern hues is also a sure bet
  • Consider replacing sinks as well as fixtures in brushed nickel chrome or stainless steel
  • Under-cabinet or track lighting can create a contemporary look
  • Replace that old shower curtain with contemporary glass doors
  • A new mirror/medicine cabinet can also make a real difference

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to add pizzazz to your kitchen or bath. Just changing a few elements can make a significant statement to you and potential buyers down the road.
