6 tips to update your kitchen for less than $100



Just updating the kitchen and bathroom will bring your home to life. Especially when you update the kitchen, where housewives spend most of their time, the house becomes more lively.


Here are 6 cost-effective tips that can change the look of your kitchen for less than $100.



1. Washable rug


There are washable rugs for kitchen use only. It's not the vinyl mat we usually know, yet it only costs about $30. The atmosphere of the kitchen will be much more elevated.



2. Replace cabinet handle


Even if your kitchen cabinet is old, just replacing the handle with a new one will give it an updated look. If you go to Amazon, or any place that sells kitchen hardware, you will be amazed at the variety of handles. For really unique finds, search ebay. You might think a handle is not much of a difference, but if you change it, you'll really like it.



3. Cabinet painting


If you don't like the kitchen cabinet, I recommend painting it rather than spending a lot of money to replace it.

Because cabinets occupy the largest area in the kitchen, a new color will be a complete 180.

When painting, even if it is a little annoying, I recommend that you remove the doors one by one and sand them before painting. If someone around you has paint sprayer, it's a good idea to rent one. It'll make all the difference between leaving and not leaving brush marks, so the quality is different from that painted with a brush.

After sanding, I recommend that you apply a primer and paint at least 3 coats.



4. Pendant light or lamp replacement


Even if it's not from a good brand, you can still find good designs and cheap faucets online. Even if you replace only the faucet with one that matches the trend these days, the atmosphere in the kitchen will be completely different.



5. Faucet replacement


Regardless if it's not from a good brand, you can still find good design and cheap faucets online. Even if you replace only the faucet with one that matches the trend these days, the atmosphere in the kitchen will be completely different.



6. Backsplash paper


It is not a backsplash tile, but a sheet paper with a tile shape printed on it. It is easy to install, and the atmosphere in the kitchen is greatly improved after installation. In fact, there are products that have a three-dimensional tile shape, and these products do not look like tile-sheet . If the existing wall is a dark color, use a bright white product, and if the wall is a light wall, use a colorful product to help change the atmosphere.
