You don’t need to go through the work and cost of a full kitchen remodel just to make it look nicer, function better, and add more to your home’s value. Focusing on just one improvement to the kitchen makes a big difference while keeping your remodeling efforts manageable. Try these three high value kitchen improvement projects this summer.
Try a DIY Backsplash
Tile and tin backsplashes protect your walls and add beauty to the space, but they also cost quite a bit to have professionally installed. Try your own DIY backsplash by picking up some peel and stick tiles in colorful and fun patterns. Follow the layout recommendations, such as starting a tile in the center and trimming both the upper and lower layers of tile, in order to get a professional look at a fraction of the price.
Install a New Island
Adding counters is difficult in most kitchens due to a lack of open wall space. Get creative and use that empty floor space instead by building an island from the bottom up. Try a mobile kitchen island to make the most of a small kitchen so the unit can be rolled into another room when you’re hosting a big party. Islands can be a DIY project, but for most homeowners, it’s something best left to the professionals.
Replace Those Outdated Cabinets
Finally, replace those old-fashioned stained pine or particle board cabinets with something nicer and more functional. Custom built cabinets do take a little time, but they’re often less expensive than you would assume. Pre-assembled cabinets go in quickly, so you can get back to cooking and still look great and last for years.
