Kitchen Upgrades You Can Afford

Let’s face it: when it comes to upgrading your kitchen, the price tag is often well out of your budget range. This can lead to one of two things: overspending or an inability to some of the things you would like in your kitchen. From upgrading your Gilbert cabinets to putting in new flooring, some of the major upgrades that add life to your kitchen space may be too much for you at this time. However, there are a few kitchen upgrades that you can likely afford; these upgrades won’t break the bank and will make your kitchen look completely renewed in no time.

  • Replace hardware on Gilbert cabinets: This might seem like such a small step and yet new hardware for your cabinets can make all the difference in the world. You might try some trendier takes on traditional hardware options, such as bronze or nickel. These materials are still strong enough to properly hold your Gilbert cabinets together, while looking funky and interesting enough to add some pizazz to this element of your kitchen.
  • Get a new kitchen faucet: Once you are done with your Gilbert cabinets, it may be time to move on to another area of the kitchen. If you want to do an upgrade you’re likely to use often, you might consider installing a new kitchen sink and corresponding faucet.  Opt for something energy efficient, so that you can truly make the most of the upgrade by at least saving a few bucks on your water bills. Moreover, if you go with a high end faucet designer, your sink may end up looking more like a work of art than a traditional sink space in the kitchen.
  • Install a new backsplash: Nothing pops more than color in a  kitchen and one of the best ways to get great color quick is through the use of a backsplash. You can install this behind the stove in your home or even along the wall between the countertops and the Gilbert kitchen cabinets. Opt for a professionally designed installation for best results and don’t shy away from something outside of the norm for you. The more eclectic you are willing to be with your backsplash, the more dramatic effect it will have and carry a major part of the design scheme of the kitchen space. This is definitely the place to be adventurous.
