Sure, it would be great to have all new cabinets put in, but that is a budget busting project and not always feasible. Instead of settling for the same old look that you have now, consider cabinet refacing.
A veneer is placed over the existing doors and drawer fronts.
The remainder of the cabinets remains the same.
Hardware is usually changed as well to complete the makeover.
Your cabinets are left with a completely different look at a very small fraction of what new cabinets would have cost you.
A fresh coat of paint makes a huge difference in any room. Choose colors that you love and you will be sure to smile when you enter your newly painted room. Even outdated rooms will look fresher and more modern with a new coat of paint.
If your floors are old and worn, you may not have the budget to have hardwood floors installed or other expensive options. However, there are some amazing laminates out there. They are stunning. Some even look like actual wood. It can be difficult to tell the difference between laminate and real wood just by looking. Do not suffer with ugly, worn floors just because you can't afford an expensive material. Bargain flooring has really come a long way.
The above are some ideas to help you begin your remodeling project on a budget. They each have huge impact but do not cost much. There are many other inexpensive options. You can discuss these with your remodeling professional. These professionals have project ideas for almost any budget.
