Budget Kitchen and Bath Makeovers

Don't have $10,000 to do a complete kitchen or bath makeover? New cabinets, countertop, backsplash, sink, hardware, flooring. If you've never done a kitchen or bath remodel and start to get quotes from local home improvement stores or kitchen & bath shops, you might be shocked at how much it can cost. Once you add up all of the new materials and pay for the labor you might want to consider some other options...and stay on budget!

There are multiple ways to upgrade and enhance your kitchen or bath and not break the bank. Whether you do this as a do-it-yourself project or hire a contractor for maybe some of the project, you can save thousands of dollars by selecting and buying the materials yourself. A great way to do this is to shop online and find the best deals on the materials you need to complete your project.

Here are some great ideas how you can make great updates to your home without breaking the bank:

Replace your old cabinet doors and drawer fronts 

Replacement cabinet doors and drawer fronts are a very cost effective way to bring an entirely new and updated look to your kitchen and bath and much cheaper than buying all new cabinets. If your cabinet doors are old and worn or you just want to change the style, this is a really simple do-it-yourself project. Shopping and ordering online is a great way to order your new Cabinet Doors and Drawer Fronts. There are many styles - raised panel, recess panel, shaker and slab - in many different wood, medium density fiberboard (MDF) or rigid thermofoil (RTF) options. Measuring for new cabinet doors and drawer fronts is very simple. If replacing a current door or front, all you need to do is measure the width and height to the nearest 1/16".

Replace your cabinet doors with glass cabinet doors

Updating your solid panel kitchen cabinet doors with glass cabinet doors or "mullion cabinet doors" will help bring your kitchen to a whole new level. Glass cabinet doors bring a unique style and look to your kitchen and bring a touch of elegance and openness. Glass cabinet doors are just as easy as replacing standard cabinet doors and installing the glass is easier than you might think. There are many glass cabinet door and glass options and configurations so shop online to find the right style for your kitchen.

Paint your kitchen and bath cabinets

Painting your current kitchen and bath cabinets is another way to bring an entirely new look to your home. Though more labor intensive if your do-it-yourself, painting your cabinet doors, drawer fronts and frames is very popular today. Imagine taking your old oak or maple cabinet doors and drawer fronts and bringing them back to life with a white, creme or light or dark gray finish. If you want to change the style or finish then ordering unfinished Cabinet Doors and Drawer Fronts is an option. Paint grade hard maple and medium density fiberboard are great materials to use when priming and/or painting.

Upgrade your drawer boxes 

Your drawer boxes get a lot of use and abuse over the years. A large percentage of new homes built years ago were built with particle board drawer boxes that were 1/2" thick and pinned together with braid nails. Today, there are many solid wood options that feature 5/8" sides, dovetail construction and finished completely so that your Drawer Boxes will last for years.
