How to Update an Old Kitchen on a Budget

Did you know it is possible to update your kitchen without spending a lot of money? In short, you do not have to undertake expensive remodeling to make your kitchen look good.

Hang a Pendant Light

If you have been using a normal bulb for lighting, why don’t you replace it with a beautiful pendant light? It will cost you much less than a full-fledged remodeling.

You can pick a chrome or rustic light fixture. Only ensure that it complements the existing color of the kitchen décor. If you want, you can make a statement by increasing the pendant lights to more than one.

Scrub and Paint the Sink

After many years of continuous use, your sink is likely to have assumed an unappealing brown color. Why don’t you scrub it using sandpaper and paint it? Simple spray paint will do the trick.

If you are ready to meet the cost, you could even replace the sink with a new one. Updating kitchen cabinets on a budget may also involve installing a stylish faucet.

Change Hardware

If you want to learn how to update an old kitchen on a budget, you should start with simple things such as the cabinet and drawer handles.

That way, you will end up updating a kitchen without replacing cabinets. Buy new hardware cheaply from the store and install them yourself. As long as you have the right tools, you don’t need to call for help.

It is even better if the hardware is colorful, decorative or vintage.


Updating kitchen cabinets on a budget can be as easy as removing the clutter around your space. Check your kitchen counters and cabinets for things that you no longer use.

Watch out for unwanted or outdated food, old utensils, and disused appliances. If there are any items that belong elsewhere, remove them from your kitchen.

That way, you will not have to spend a lot of money remodeling your kitchen.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets

If you are looking for simple, low-budget kitchen designs, consider painting your cabinets as an option. With a little amount of money, you will be able to change the look of the entire kitchen.

You may want to concentrate on the shelves, trim, and cabinet doors. However, the painting must be done following a certain process. Start by cleaning every surface you intend to paint.

Fill in the holes or nicks with a wood filler or patty. Thoroughly sand the surface to make it smooth enough. After painting, give the surface time to completely dry.
