A luxury kitchen is a dream for many homeowners, but thoughts of it can turn into nightmares when faced with the high price-tags. Luckily, it’s easier than you might think to create your own luxury kitchen on a budget, without sacrificing quality.
So, what are some ways you can create a high-end, expensive look?
Here are six ideas to help get you started:
1) Affordable countertop materials
When designing a luxury kitchen, beautiful natural stone countertops are one of the first things that come to mind. But to save money, materials such as granite and quartz will not only give you that luxurious feel, but also last forever and require little maintenance.
Other options include stone or wood effect laminate, solid acrylic and concrete – all available in a wide range of colours and patterns to fit any style.
2) Install a backsplash
Backsplashes are a great way to add personality and texture to your kitchen, and they can be surprisingly affordable, too. White subway tiles are always a popular option for a contemporary twist to an industrial kitchen.
There’s also decorative peel-and-stick vinyl decals that re-create the look of a mosaic or painted titles, wooden panelling to bring a warm, rustic element and loads of unique wallpaper ones that won’t break the bank.
3) Invest in high-quality appliances
It’s no secret that quality appliances tend to be a bit pricey, but there are ways to get around this. One option is to buy used appliances or even purchase refurbished models.
Another way to create a luxurious kitchen is to go for eye-catching metallic or even brightly coloured appliances to be smoothly incorporated into your space. Whatever route you choose, make sure to do your research to find the best deals.
4) Change cabinet hardware
One easy way to give your kitchen a quick facelift is by changing the cabinet hardware. This is an especially great option if you’re on a tight budget, as it’s a relatively inexpensive way to add some glamour and style.
Matte black, brass, copper and stainless steel materials are all great options to make your cabinetry standout, especially for darker or lighter coloured kitchens when it comes to creating a good sense of contrast.
5) Add a touch of colour
Colour can be a powerful tool in transforming a space. Painting the walls or cabinets in a bold green, blue or grey can really make a statement of sophistication and elegance, whilst neutral shades of beige, cream or ivory will create the illusion of a big, lavish-looking kitchen. You could even try adding colorful accessories or artwork into the mix.
6) Use decorative lighting
Decorative lighting is another easy way to add a sense of luxury without spending a lot of money. There are many beautiful and affordable light fixtures on the market, from minimalist LEDs to pendant hanging lights (very on-trend right now), so take your time in choosing something that will really make your kitchen shine.
With these tips, you should be well on your way to creating a luxurious kitchen on a budget!
