Did you know that the most expensive looking kitchens do not exactly have to be actually expensive? Here are cheap hacks to make your kitchen look brand new and expensive.
You see them on TV, either in the home and garden shows that make us all envious or in movies. The kitchens are just spectacular. Then you begin to wonder how much that would cost? You look it up online and see that the house is worth something close to your entire bloodline and all its memories. Then you get crest-fallen. There is no way you could ever afford that, at least not with your meagre fortunes.
What you do not know is that you can easily have a kitchen that look just as classy like the ones depicted in TV. As flipping experts have proven, like the ones interviewed in this Rick Otton Podcast: http://webuyhousesradio.com/139-top-tips-from-fix-and-flip-expert/
All you have to do is make use of some cheap hacks to make your kitchen look brand new and expensive. Here is a list of the best affordable kitchen hacks today.
Paint the kitchen a lighter colour
Our perception of colours affects a great number of things, including just how big a room looks as well as how expensive it seems. By using lighter colours, you will essentially make your kitchen seem bigger, brighter, and more expensive. Be sure to incorporate neutral colours in the backsplash. This is the first step to having a beautiful kitchen.
Make your light part of the decor
Those expensive looking kitchens look that way because they are riddled with some of the best decor you can find. Although many of the things you see on TV are custom made and therefore, quite expensive, you do not have to go down that lane. You can simply walk into your local home and hardware store to see what they have in terms of lighting. Choosing the most decorative and unique lighting fixtures you can afford will make a huge difference in how you kitchen looks. Affordable chandeliers and pendant lights will make for excellent, expensive looking additions to the fixtures within your kitchen.
Incorporate a breakfast bar
This is one of those things that make a kitchen look more stylish and expensive that it really is in actuality. The best part is that this is not an expensive addition at all. If you are handy with tools, you can actually build your own custom-made breakfast bar. Placing it strategically in the kitchen will make the entire space look superb.
Incorporate glass-fronted cabinets
This is simply a play on illusions. Glass-fronted cabinets open up the space within the cabinets themselves by allowing people to see through to the back. This makes the kitchen appear slightly larger than it actually is in reality. Plus, the reflection of light (either natural or from all the chandeliers you added) in the glass-fronted cabinets will add some lighting and glare to the proceedings. Thus making everything simmer and glow. Making it all look more glamorous and expensive.
Another excellent and highly affordable hack that most people often overlook is – keep it clean. By simply making sure that your kitchen is always clean and well organised will make it seem bigger, perpetually new and extremely inviting. These are the simple and affordable ways to make your kitchen look new and expensive every single day.
