5 Budget Kitchen Makeovers That Look Like Serious Splurges

View gallery

Kitchen makeovers on a budget are always impressive. After all, we’re so used to seeing kitchen renovations that are over-the-top and expensive, especially on social media. But regardless of what some folks might have you believe, it is possible to redo your kitchen without emptying your entire wallet.

How to Do Kitchen Makeovers on a Budget

The secret to renovating a kitchen for less is simple: You need to get creative. By creative, we don’t mean that you have to create a whole new set of kitchen chairs in your backyard (although we give you props if you do!). Creativity simply means thinking outside of the box for what you want your new-and-improved kitchen to look like. Sick and tired of looking at your old kitchen cabinets? Maybe instead of replacing them with new ones, you could simply give them a fresh coat of pretty paint. Is there a particular stone or crystal that you’d love to decorate with but just can’t afford right now? Maybe you can find a laminate countertop with a similar pattern for a cheaper price.

No matter what you choose to do with your own kitchen makeover, you can rest easy knowing that you significantly improved your space without spending every last dollar in your pocket. We realize this is a lot more easily said than done. That’s why it’s crucial to get inspiration from other folks who have already done their inexpensive kitchen renovations — and who have before-and-after photos to prove it. While Pinterest can obviously be a big help when researching home makeovers in general, it can be easy to get overwhelmed or even sidetracked in the midst of all the impossibly gorgeous photos. The best home makeovers out there will keep your attention and give you a clearer idea for what you want to do with your own kitchen — without distracting you with features you can’t afford.
