Kitchen remodels are one of the most common, expensive, and largest renovations to do at home. The average price of a kitchen upgrade is around $22,000. There are plenty of ways to DIY a kitchen on your own to save some money — and don’t worry, you don’t have to be a professional!
- Change Hardware
Updating cabinet hardware in the kitchen is one of the simplest changes you can make. There is no experience needed and not many tools required! This is the best project for people who are just starting out in the DIY renovation world. An update on a handle can change up the look of the kitchen easily. All you really need is the new hardware and a screwdriver!
2. A Fresh Coat of Paint
A room can be totally transformed with a new paint job. You can paint one wall in the kitchen as a bold accent wall, the kitchen island, or cabinets. Changing up the color will do a lot to the kitchen without having to shell out a ton of money and time.
If you are looking for a good kitchen DIY to tackle one weekend, think about adding a backsplash. You can purchase peel and stick tiles in different colors, designs, and textures. This requires little to no tools and minimal mess!
4. Add Simple Storage
All you need to create or upgrade storage in your kitchen is some shelving and a power drill. You can customize the shelving to fit your decor tastes. If you do not want to add any shelving to your kitchen, think about going through all the existing space you have. Try to declutter so that you can unearth some storage you didn’t think you had.
