You’ve been waiting and wishing to remodel your home. However, life keeps getting the better of you, taking not only your time but also any money you set aside for home improvements. Now that we’re in the holiday season, you know you cannot affordthe complete remodel you’ve been dreaming about. Those holiday parties and the arrival of family are imminent, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do a little sprucing up before the new year. In fact, here are three ways to improve your home without completely gutting it, courtesy of our team at Incredible Kitchens and Baths.
1. Start with a fresh coat of paint.
It’s amazing what a modern paint color can do to update your kitchen or bathroom almost instantly. The best part about a new coat of paint is that it’s a quick transformation that doesn’t cost a lot. Even if you hire painters, the job will cost significantly less and take fewer man hours than a complete remodel.
2. Update the details.
From new light fixtures to cabinet hardware, you can make several small changes that can bring your space into the current decade. For example, replace those shiny, brass kitchen cabinet pulls with sleek, brushed nickel or black knobs that complement your existing cabinets and give a modern touch. Other small changes you can make include changing out light fixtures, updating the range hood, installing a new faucet, or even swapping out appliances. These home improvements can all be done relatively quickly and at various price points.
3. Replace your countertops.
Pretty soon, you may be doing quite a bit of cooking in the kitchen. Even if you’re not a cook, you may be bringing in a caterer who will fill your kitchen with yummy holiday treats. What better way to enjoy holiday cooking, baking, and eating than on a beautiful, new custom countertop? You can finally get rid of that old laminate beast and choose a modern quartz or a natural wood countertop that will completely change your kitchen’s look.
All three of these projects can happen with minimal time and financial resources. You can choose to do them yourself or hire a home-improvement crew like Incredible Kitchens and Baths to do the work for you. We serve homeowners in and around Kokomo and Peru, IN.
