      Ten Easy Ways to Revamp Your Kitchen - PrimeLending Dallas
      Does your kitchen look outdated and tired, but you have
      neither time nor money to give it a major renovation?
      Our team of Dallas mortgage experts has put together a
      list of ten quick and inexpensive projects that will give
      your archaic kitchen the newness and sparkle it so
      desperately needs.

      1.)              Think Paint.

      When restoring a kitchen on a budget, paint truly works
      miracles and it works on almost everything. If your cabinets are in need of sprucing up, paint them
      inside and out. If they are originally a form of old, tired wood, use a very glossy, white spray-paint, or
      try an oil-based creamy white paint that you can brush on by hand. Painting kitchen cabinets instead
      of completely replacing them is a sure way to save big.

      After you finish with the kitchen cabinets, look into repainting your kitchen walls. A fresh coat of paint
      can have a dramatic impact on any room in the house. When it comes to paint, color is not necessar-
      ily everything. Compare textures and glosses. For the kitchen walls, try out latex satin enamel paint in
      either a soft sheen or no sheen in a color that really contrast with your updated cabinets.

      2.)              New Hardware.

      Many times when you give kitchen cabinets a coat of paint, you realize that the cabinet pulls and hard-
      ware no longer function with the cabinets. Replacing the hardware adds the extra punch to make your
      fresh, new cabinets go from looking good, to looking great.

      3.)              Take It Away.

      One way to open up a kitchen space is to remove a couple of cabinet doors and construct some inex-
      pensive shelving that can be used as display space. This works well for making small kitchens appear
      larger. If you do choose to remove a few cabinet doors, be sure to paint the insides of them. You can
      either paint them the same color as the outside, or if you are feeling really creative, add a pop of color
      to the insides that works well with the entire color scheme of the room.

      4.)              Swap.

      Remove the solid cabinet doors and replace them with glass inserts. This technique is great for all
      kitchen types because there are a wide range of glass inserts available. You can choose from clear,
      frosted, or even vintage glass that is mastered down to fit the space.

      5.)              Lighting.

      Track lighting quickly updates and brightens all kitchens. When trying to pick out appropriate light
      fixtures, keep the overall style of your kitchen in mind. You wouldn’t want to place wire suspension,
      contemporary light fixtures in a rustic-themed kitchen. Regardless of what style you are going with,
      any light fixture placed in the right area can work wonders on a dark, outdated kitchen.

      6.)              Tile Tricks.

      Instead of blowing your entire budget on granite countertops, try opting for tile instead. If you have a
      smaller kitchen, this project is ideal because you can really splurge on nice tile. A tiled countertop can
      give a kitchen a luxurious feeling without draining the wallet. Keep in mind that irregularities are okay,
      in fact, they add uniqueness and character to the space.

      7.)              Easy Floors.

      Today the are countless flooring options available. There are self-stick tiles, floating wood floors, and
      even faux wood tiles that are inexpensive, can be placed in a single afternoon and look fantastic.

      8.)              Impressive Faucets.

      Now that you have saved in just about every aspect of your Dallas kitchen remodel, here is a feature
      that you can actually splurge on. Investing in a new faucet can make an old sink look brand new with-
      out the price tag of one. A showy faucet in chrome, brass, or even white will look great and really give
      off a “new kitchen” vibe.

      9.)              Mirror, Mirror on the Wall.

      Hanging mirrors in any small room immediately add space without costly alterations. This project
      works especially well for those with galley kitchens. Just place a nicely framed mirror on the back wall
      of your galley kitchen to get greater dimension and a seemingly larger space. You can also place mir-
      rors above refrigerators, in breakfast nooks, or on the floor rested against a spare wall (this only works
      with incredibly large, framed mirrors).

      10.)             Dress Windows.

      Similar to a fresh coat of paint, new window coverings can restore an entire wall. For light control, use
      matchstick blinds cut-to-fit or metal-toned mini blinds. Even small shutters can be installed in a single
      afternoon and are readily available in white or neutral. If you want to add color to the area but don’t
      want to hang curtains, try painting or staining the small shutters.
