My mega cheap kitchen makeover for the ranch house is complete. I did it all for under $50 & I think it makes a huge difference.
I spent most of my money on paint. Cupboards went white.
The business of the wallpaper was concealed with a relaxing light grey giving the kitchen a sophisticated country feel.
The kitchen is so much more peaceful & brighter. It's amazing what a little paint can do.
Hardware was spruced up with a fresh coat of black spray paint. I also painted the light switch & outlet covers & the heating registers.
And a new back splash was installed. The black splash makes a huge difference & is very easy to do.
I used self-adhesive linoleum tiles. These tiles were only a dollar a piece.
They basically go on like a sticker. Very easy to use, you don't need to be handy to handle these.
I cut them in half so they covered twice the distance. Simply score (which means don't cut all the way through) using a straight edge & a utility knife. Then bend the tile at the score & it will break off evenly right where you need it to.
The before & after say it all. You don't need to spend a lot of money to change the entire look of your kitchen. Just use what you've got & spruce it up a bit with paint. Also reorganize & de-clutter, this can give your kitchen a whole new feel. Remodeling doesn't mean you have to break the bank.
