Not all kitchen remodels have to deplete your savings account. Home renovations have the reputation of being expensive and time-consuming. The First Coast Supply team is here to tell you that’s not always the case. When you work with a pro from square one, even the biggest projects can stay in-budget and on time. Here are a few small kitchen renovations that can completely change the look and value of your home:
Revamp an Outdated Backsplash
The good news is, affordable backsplashes happen to be on-trend. Subway tile, for example, is one of the cheaper options and achieves the look many homeowners want. If your kitchen is plagued by a backsplash trend of the 90s or early 2000s, we feel your pain.
Save money on your remodel and make this part of the project a DIY job. All of the cash you save on labor can go toward updated fixtures and a new countertop instead.
Aim for Eye-Catching Appliances
If you’re going to invest in a kitchen renovation, it’s important to focus a substantial percentage on updated appliances. This is one part of your kitchen that’s totally worth the splurge.
An influx of interest in fully custom kitchens has led appliance manufacturers to broaden their designs. Popular brands like LG, Wolf and Bosch offer customers top-quality appliances in countless different finishes. Retro white (so not the textured look from 20 years ago), sleek matte black and pops of pastel are all popular with homeowners around Jacksonville.
Upgrade the Knobs and Handles for an Instant Refresh
We can’t think of an easier way to give your kitchen a fresh look than replacing the fixtures. If you opt for new appliances and a new sink, updated knobs and handles are the natural next step to bring your design full-circle.
Unlike appliances, simple fixtures like these only require a teeny tiny part of your budget. If you’re like most homeowners, you want an on-trend design that stays in style for many years. Come visit the First Coast Supply showroom in Jacksonville for a glimpse into classic trends for updating your kitchen.
