Redecorating a kitchen doesn’t have to be expensive as long as you have a specific budget in mind. What would you like to fix? Have you ever thought of repainting the cabinets? Believe it or not, repainting is one of the most cost-effective ways of bringing a kitchen to life. The whole process is not really complicated if you hire a contractor, and although it can be rather challenging if you choose to repaint yourself, the end result will certainly exceed your expectations. Prior to getting started, there are some things to clear out such as: choosing the paint and the color, selecting a style (minimalist, vintage, etc.) and setting up a budget to buy the paint.

Vintage Colors For Kitchen Cabinets

A kitchen is usually made of lots of cabinets, counters, and electrical appliances. A traditional cooking space comes with a kitchen island and the basic color for the entire space is usually white. Americans love their white kitchens because they look spacious, clean, and orderly. Don’t you think it’s time to make a change? Aren’t you sick and tired of all that white?

The newest trend in redecorating kitchens is to opt for vintage shades. These are usually inspired from the textures of different types of wood such as red oak, mahogany, or cherry. It’s truly amazing what a pop of color can do to a space, and redecorating a kitchen by repainting cabinets is the cheapest, smartest way of making a visible change.

Breathable Kitchen

How do you make a kitchen breathable? It's easy. First of all you get rid of the dark shades. Throw your black curtains to the garbage, and welcome natural light into your space. Keep things white because you can always add color using accessories. Your next step is to plant flower pots and herbs. Adorning your cooking space with home-grown wheatgrass, lavender, mint, basil, rosemary and numerous other types of herbs you can use in your recipes, is an excellent way of creating an airy environment on a budget.

The Island – The Centrepiece Of Your Kitchen

Kitchen islands are extremely practical if you have a spacious cooking space. Unfortunately, because they’re intensely used the color usually wears off really fast. Homeowners have specific requests when it comes to their islands, and they’re usually linked to shape, material type, and color. Cooking all day long is great, yet it’s equally important to invest in high-quality materials such as hardwood for example.

If however, you’re not that fond with the way natural wood looks like, you can easily repaint your kitchen island. Don’t forget that it’s the centrepiece of your entire kitchen, so it must stand out. If the rest of your space is white, beige, or cream, doesn’t be afraid to take a risk and paint your island in black for example. If you’re feeling more daring, more opulent shades like fuchsia, red, purple, and yellow are equally recommended.

Repainting Kitchen Cabinets

You don’t need a big budget to repaint your kitchen cabinets. All you need is to find a competent contractor and the right type of paint. Sometimes, everything your space needs is a splash of color to make it modern and vibrant again. If you don’t have a big budget at your disposal you can repaint some of your cabinets. Take some time to look at your kitchen and analyse your cabinets. Which one is the most used? Which one is the oldest? Which one do you think is bringing your kitchen down?

Cabinet painting is an excellent way of making your kitchen look inspirational. Colour makes spaces look different when there’s not enough money for a complete makeover, and that’s ok. You’d be surprised how ingenious a kitchen can look if you combine the right shades and textures. Have you ever thought of refacing your cabinets? The technique is extremely easy to use; it involves placing a new surface over the outside parts of the cabinets. It’s not messy but if you’re not familiar with the term, hiring someone to do it might seem like an excellent idea.

Innovative Use Of Material - Stainless Steel

Unlike hardwood, stainless steel is a lot more convenient. It's the type of material you can use to make your whole kitchen stand out. Use shelf-adhesive sheeting for the walls of your kitchen island, or slap up metal tiles to create a sleek backsplash. In combination with your appliances, the whole cooking space will look innovative, original, and unique.

Stainless steel influences in the kitchen are excellent for modern spaces. If you're a vintage freak you can always opt for wrought iron furniture pieces. They're really cheap! Invest in chairs, kitchen ware with an old-fashioned appeal, and art. It's amazing how much you can do with some basic ideas.

Paint has the power to change your kitchen’s appeal entirely, and it’s great that you don’t need a big budget to make that happen. Whether you choose to hire someone to do the painting or you’re feeling ready to try out a DIY project, always remember your goal: to make your kitchen look new, fresh, and welcoming for your guests and loved ones. Have you decided on a color yet? It’s important to get informed prior to making a decision. Check out the web for some tips on how to choose the right paint, view some tutorials, and don’t be shy to ask if you don’t know what color to pick. A proper blend is extremely important if you want the end result to make you adore your new kitchen.
