So you have noticed (and so has everyone else) that your kitchen looks more than a little out of date. You would love to remodel it completely but you simply don't have that kind of money right now. There is no need to despair though. While you squirrel away a few dollars a week so that one day you can get the kitchen of your dreams there are some smaller little redecorating and remodeling tweaks that are both affordable and easy to implement that will make a surprising difference to the way the space looks.

Best of all, most of these projects can be accomplished in just a few days - over a long weekend perhaps. In fact you'll have a brand new look for your kitchen faster than you might ever have imagined.

Invest in New Cabinet Hardware - a lot of the time it is not the kitchen cabinets themselves that are the problem but rather the cabinet hardware that is dating them. The very simple act of replacing your cabinet knobs and handles with something fresh and new can give those old kitchen cabinets a whole new lease on life in just an hour or so.

Update the Color Scheme - Color trends come and go and the yellows and avocados that were very much in vogue in the seventies really don't fit in the 21st century. Neither does that busy wallpaper that was all the rage in the eighties. If your kitchen walls are looking a little worse for wear, a few simple coats of paint can make a huge difference. Want to make an even bigger impact with your kitchen walls? Have a new ceramic tile backsplash installed as well.

Take a Long Look At Your Kitchen Floor -Area rugs in the kitchen can help cover up minor imperfections perfectly. If your kitchen floor is really showing its age though -cracks, rips, ten year old stains that no one knows (or wants to know) what they really are - then you may have to bite the bullet and opt for new flooring. The best bet for those on a tight budget is vinyl flooring. Today's vinyl flooring is durable and water resistant and can even mimic more expensive flooring options like hardwood and natural stone.

Update Your Window Treatments - If you have had the same pair of cherry motif caf curtains for the past decade then it is probably time for a change. There are a huge variety of kitchen window treatments available today and any one of them will have a far greater impact on your kitchen's transformation than you might ever have imagined possible.
