How to Remodel Your Kitchen without Spending a Fortune

Watch more Kitchen & Bathroom Remodeling videos:

Get the look of a pricey kitchen renovation—without the cost. All it takes is a few smart upgrades.

Step 1: Paint the kitchen
Add a fresh coat of paint; it immediately brightens any room.

Step 2: Get the look of stainless steel on contact
Get the look of high-end appliances by covering them with stainless steel contact paper. Or, get a mishmash of appliances to match by ordering new doors or panels for some of them.

Before you order a new front panel for a dishwasher door, check if yours is reversible, with a different color on the opposite side.

Step 3: Get a “granite” counter
If you’re still scrubbing Formica, install a faux granite counter for a fraction of the price of the real thing.

Step 4: Give cabinets a facelift
Give old cabinets a facelift by sanding them down and then refinishing or painting them. Or have them refaced – the cabinet boxes stay but new doors are put on. If your cabinets are in decent shape, just slap on some high-end hardware, like brushed nickel knobs or drawer pulls.

Step 5: Floor it
Replace an old floor with a vinyl one, which is less expensive than ceramic tile but can look just as pricey.

Step 6: Install a new sink
Consider installing a new sink—it’s a relatively inexpensive renovation that will perk up your entire kitchen. Or just invest in a new faucet.

Did You Know?
On average, homeowners recoup 85 percent of what they spend on even a minor kitchen remodeling job, according to a study by Remodeling magazine.

    I agree. In fact just about every one of those proposed kitchen renovations could be their own howcast episode in and of themselves.

    @brittleonhardt2539 Can someone tell me whether or not "tbrittleonhardt2539" is a blonde?

    Yeah, nevermind the old toxic plumbing spewing heavy metals into your water supply, unsafe electrical wiring, mold under the sink base and in the walls, inefficient appliances, uninsulated walls, bacteria everywhere, crappy 1/2" particle board cabinet boxes, etc., etc. Oh, and be sure to use HIGHLY TOXIC vinyl flooring and plastic ‘stainless steel’ shelf liner on your appliances………

    My coworkers laughed when I told them I would burn off fat with "Supreme Fat loss", but then they saw the results. Go and google "Supreme Fat loss" to see their reaction.

    Step 2, Make a complete balls of it
    Step 3. Keep it for a while inwardly groaning every time you are in its disgusting presence
    Step 4. Get it done right and enjoy it

    Cool video! #GoldenAcreRenovations

  34. Renee Vann on August 11, 2020 at 2:35 am

    HATE vinyl flooring. I don’t care what anyone says it looks tacky and cheap. Especially over time.
    I’d rather just splurge on some ceramic tiles.

  35. jacob holguin on August 11, 2020 at 2:38 am

    refacing your $40 coffee pot w contact paper? wow that is ghetto.

  36. robro on August 11, 2020 at 2:39 am
