How to Remodel a Kitchen on a Budget

By: Danny Lipford

When remodeling your kitchen on a limited budget, consider reusing your existing cabinets and flooring, rather than starting from scratch. Here are some ideas on how to go about renovating your kitchen on a budget:

  • Reuse Cabinets: Improve the look of your existing cabinets with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware.
  • Keep Flooring: If your existing floor is in good condition, cover it to protect the floor during renovation and reuse it.
  • Add Backsplash: Consider adding a ceramic tile backsplash behind the countertops for a durable, attractive look.
  • Improve Lighting: Install pendant lights, recessed lights, and under cabinet lighting to brighten up the existing kitchen.
  • Upgrade Appliances: Consider upgrading existing appliances to Energy Star rated models which will save money in the long run.

    I saw the show regarding “How to remodel Kitchen’s on a Budget.” The only thing that was not mentioned was the color of the kitchen, the “orangish color.” Can you please tell me what color that is as I have been condsidering painting my kitchen and really liked the color.

    Thank you,

    Mrs. Russell
