9 Inexpensive Ways To Make Your Kitchen Look Expensive

You can give your kitchen a facelift without spending a fortune. While most people don’t have enough money to spend on kitchen renovations, that doesn’t mean your kitchen has to look like a cheap IKEA hack job. There are plenty of ways to make your kitchen look expensive without spending much money.

1) Use Lighter Colors

Lighter cabinet and wall colors instantly brighten the kitchen and make it look more expensive. Try painting your cabinets or walls white, cream, or light gray. The trick with light colors is that they reflect light and hide all unwanted scratches, dents, and dings on the cabinet.

2) Add Glass Cabinet Doors

Glass cabinet doors are not only stylish, but they also make your kitchen look more open and airy. If you have solid cabinet doors, you can easily replace them with glass ones. Or you can add glass inserts to your existing cabinet doors.

3) Replace Hardware

Old and outdated hardware can date a kitchen. Replace just the handles and knobs on your cabinets and drawers to give your kitchen a quick makeover. Look for modern and sleek hardware in metal finishes such as chrome or stainless steel.

4) Update Your Lighting

Chandeliers and pendants add a regal finish to any kitchen. But if you don’t have the budget for a high-end fixture, you can still get the same look with some well-placed track lighting. Track lighting is versatile and can highlight specific areas of your kitchen, such as an island or a breakfast nook.

5) Use Stainless Steel Paint for Appliances

If your appliances are starting to look a little dated, you can easily update them with some stainless steel paint. This will give them a brand new look and make them appear much more expensive.

6) Add a Backsplash

A backsplash is an excellent way of adding visual interest to your kitchen. You can use various materials such as glass, tile, or stone to add a backsplash. If you’re on a budget, you can even use peel-and-stick tiles, which are very affordable and easy to install.

7) Replace Old Items

Replace the fruit bowl with a contemporary one, get new canisters for your flour and sugar, or swap out that old toaster for a shiny new one. Minor changes in how you present your kitchen can significantly affect the space’s vibe.

8) Hide Small Appliances

Nothing looks more unappealing than unnecessary clutter. Declutter the space by hiding small appliances such as blenders and toasters in cabinets or pantries.

9) Organize Your Cabinets

An organized space always looks more expensive and pulled together. If your kitchen cabinets look a little chaotic, take time to declutter and organize them. This creates a massive difference in the kitchen’s overall look.
