When it comes to Vancouver kitchen renovations, if you don’t want to rip into the entire structure and start from scratch, you can completely refresh it with a few smart hacks. A kitchen can be easily brightened with some minor changes that make a big difference – less is almost always more. Let’s take a look at our 5 hacks for budget Vancouver kitchen renovations!
Paint the Cabinets & Replace the Handles
Instead of replacing the cabinets, which can be costly and require a professional contractor, paint them yourself! There is such a wide variety of paint available which can completely change the look of the entire kitchen. Changing the old drawer pulls and cabinet handles to new, modern ones can also make a big, big difference in the way your kitchen looks.
Repaint the Walls or Backsplash
Over time and especially in the kitchen, the walls can acquire a smokey hazy colour from cooking, especially from burns that set off the fire alarm! Freshening up the wall colours or picking new ones will change the ambience of the room and make you feel like you’re in a completely different space. If you have some extra time and motivation to work, you can change out the backsplash, too!
Shop Online Sales & Clearances
Shopping online for furniture liquidation, craigslist offers, and big-box store sales can offer up some great deals. You just have to be good at noticing great offers!
Do it Yourself
If you’re handy and willing to learn and put in some work, you can do your entire kitchen model by yourself, or split the work with a contractor. Have them do the work that you can’t, and finish off the remodel by yourself.
You can replace small bits of the kitchen like the sinks and faucets for an easy upgrade. Check out our wide selection at Siema! Like mentioned before, you can also replace the drawer pulls and handles, even upgrade your lighting fixtures.
