Every homeowner knows that one of the best ways to add home value is modernizing the kitchen. However, budget constraint often gets in the way of your wish and your plan to smarten up your kitchen. Despair no more, for there are great ways to decorate and liven up your kitchen without having to spend a great deal of money on it.

There are many ideas of making your dream kitchen even on a budget. Below are some things that will teach you how to smarten up your kitchen in the most economical way.

  1. Changing kitchen cabinet knobs with a new hardware is one of the most affordable and fabulous ways to enhance the look of your kitchen in an instant. If replacing your old cabinet is not up to your budget, why not buy several smart cabinet hardwares for under $3 each and you can now outfit your kitchen. You do not have to hire a professional to do the replacement for you, this is relatively easy and you can do it on your own.

  2. Admit it, your kitchen table suffers the most abuse in your kitchen. It shoulders all the activities such as homework, food preparation, board games and other activities. These can make your kitchen table old looking and worn. Liven up by painting and choosing a different color scheme. Try adding a stencilled design for a sophisticated and unique look. Make sure to sand down rough nicks and edges on the table before painting it.

  3. Update your kitchen wall hanging or wall art to enhance the look of your kitchen. Remove outdated hangings such as a clock that is older than your first child. Determine if you want a textured wall or a classy collection of pictures to put on the wall. You could even create your own work of art for an eye-catching display. Try to look around garage sales for cheap artwork that will add excitement to your kitchen.

  4. Proper lighting in the kitchen is important so therefore you should update your light fixtures. This will also add beauty to the room and installing new ceiling fixture over the table is a wonderful way to make the room more noticeable.

  5. Another cost effective way to smarten up your kitchen is to modernize the kitchen curtains. Today, you should opt for the more minimalistic curtain to enhance the space of the kitchen. Choose solid fabrics or muted prints instead of the flower designs. Look for fabrics that you like at a wholesale store to save on the cost. Find a local seamstress who can construct the curtain that you have in mind.

  6. Add a decorative backsplash on your kitchen. Depending on your style, it should coordinate with everything you have in your kitchen and it should match with your countertop, cabinets and flooring. You can browse through a local tile shop and check for their stocks.

Remember, smartening up your kitchen need not be expensive just as long as you know several economical and creative ways of doing so.
