Tips to redecorate kitchen or bath under $100

Kitchen

Kitchens tend to be the heart of the home, where everyone gathers together for a variety of activities. Because your kitchen is used so often it can feel staid pretty quickly so a little redecorating can go a long way toward making the kitchen feel fresh and exciting again. And, as an extra bonus, you’re more apt to get a return on any money you spend redecorating your kitchen or bathroom when you sell your home. Even if you’re decorating on a budget.

The following 10 tips and tricks for redecorating your kitchen for less than $100 can be used separately or combined together for a more noticeable change in your kitchen décor.

New Hardware

Install new hardware on your cupboards and drawers. Just simple drawer pulls and hinges can make cupboards look fresh and new.

Add Paint

With your $100 budget painting the entire kitchen may not be in the cards but you could paint a border, stretch the paint and do a color wash or other faux finishing technique, use some paint you already have or borrow from friends and create your own wall artwork. Paint cupboards, accessories, photo frames, shelving units, bar stools, an old dining table, anything you can think of that could use a splash of color.

Table Settings

Buy fabric to create new linens for your table top including tablecloths, place settings and napkins. If you don’t want the extra work of a do it yourself project, simply buy these items.

Shelving

Find some inexpensive shelves and mount them in the kitchen to display cookbooks, jars of baking necessities, vases or decorative elements. Or you can put in cubby type shelves to hold supplies and other stuff that accumulates in the kitchen.

Lighting

In a kitchen lighting means everything. Usually lighting is pretty expensive but with some legwork you can find some options that will fit within your kitchen decorating budget.

Use the Good China

Rather that storing your good china and silverware and only using it once or twice a year, display it for all to see. Create a focal point or border by lining up plates. Frame silverware and let them make an artistic statement too.

Mismatched Plates

You may be able to find plates for less than $100 especially if you’re shopping off season sales. But going mismatched is cheaper and more fun. Scour garage sales, resale shops and close outs for individual plates or place settings on sale, create your own eclectic style.

New Seating

While purchasing new chairs or bar stools is probably out of your $100 kitchen redecorating budget, you can find seat cushions and slip covers which will give them an entirely new look and add energy to the table.

Always remember to shop wisely and creatively when decorating on a budget and you’ll be able to stretch your money further and get better results. To give the rest of your home a boost consider using $100 budgets to redecorate your bath, rejuvenate a bedroom, and spice up a living room.
