If you are looking to replace your kitchen but don’t have the money to buy one, then you might want to think about refurbishing the existing one to give it a make over. As replacement can be pretty costly you can opt for refurbishing one which can be carried out without a loan.
While considering for refurbishing your kitchen first thing to decide is the colour scheme or a theme. If you plan some theme for your new kitchen then you can easily decide the parts that are needed to be changed to give a new outlook.
Go for new colors or replace the old hardware of the kitchen with new. This small change will make your cabinets look like new without much fuss and will obviate the need replace the whole thine with new ones.
Another option is to change the color of your ceramic tiles. Try some different shades or textures using the special paint available. Consult some home improvement magazines to find ideas.
Your sink in the kitchen can be given a new look by installing a new faucet. And whilst you are changing these you might consider fitting a kitchen water filter at the same time which will provide you and your family with a continous clean water supply. An under the sink type will filter all the water you use in your house so if you’re only wanting to filter your drinking water you need only fit a faucet model. Once installed the only addtional expense will be replacement water filters.
After considering changing the colors of you cabinets and walls, you may want to think about replacing the flooring. If you do so, choose flooring which is water resistant and durable and can be easily cleaned.
Laminate flooring has became really popular in the last few years and it’s a perfect choice for kitchens. It’s easy to clean, durable, water and stain resistant and comes in many designs. It will even allow you to have a floor that looks like natural stone or hardwood.
