LUXURIOUS KITCHENS ON A BUDGET

MAKEOVER IDEAS FOR A LUXURIOUS KITCHEN…ON A BUDGET

EXPERT TIPS FROM YOUR TRUSTED RENOVATION CONTRACTORS

Dreaming of a sparkling new kitchen with on-trend design and high-end materials? Want the heart of your home to look chic and expensive? The experts at California Bathroom & Kitchen Remodelers share interesting makeover tips and tricks for luxurious kitchens on a budget.

TOP BUDGET-FRIENDLY SUGGESTIONS TO CREATE YOUR DREAM KITCHEN

Smart planning and savvy shopping are key to kitchen makeovers that don’t blow your budget. Here are some ideas to make the heart of your home look like a million bucks, while spending just a fraction of that on remodeling.

  1. Replace the hardware: A knob, cabinet handle or drawer pull may seem like the most insignificant of kitchen accessories, yet they can help you emulate high-end interiors. Simply swap out the old with trendy, new hardware to give your kitchen a fresh, modern look.
  2. Update the faucets: Instead of spending on high-end, stain-free, spot-free faucets, go for some well-made, polished pretenders! You may have to trade-off on materials and finishes, but you will be able to achieve a luxurious look, while staying within a reasonable budget.
  3. Upgrade the cabinetry: Luxury kitchens often feature high-quality, natural wood cabinetry, stained to highlight the rich wood grain. While you may not want to invest in expensive wood, you can give your cabinetry a fresh coat of paint and achieve a sleek transformation. Look for specialty paints and glazed finishes that replicate the effect of natural wood.
  4. Modify the cabinetry: Consider replacing some of the existing cabinet doors with glass doors or forego a couple of doors to create an open shelving look. Add a touch of luxury by displaying your best glassware or chinaware pieces on these open shelves.
  5. Create the look of expensive countertops: Countertops can make or break the look of your kitchen. High-end kitchens typically feature real marble or natural stone countertops. You can replicate that look with the right choice of high-end laminate. Alternatively, invest in relatively cheaper, but durable materials, such as granite or quartz.
  6. Change the lighting: Replace your existing light fixtures with chandeliers or pendant lights to bring the wow factor to your kitchen. Change the mood of your cook space with dynamic, LED light strips, and brighten up your prep space with under cabinet lighting.
  7. Choose the right flooring: While original hardwood or natural stone tiles may stretch your budget, you can choose from a wide range of designs and patterns in affordable materials such as engineered wood or vinyl. Select from a variety of colors and textures to recreate expensive looks, such as country-style paving slabs, warm wood-effect planks, and more.

Several other cosmetic changes can lend elegance and grandeur to your kitchen. Dress up your bare windows, style your breakfast nook, paint your existing appliances in a stainless-steel finish, or add some artwork to your cook space. Declutter the countertops, tuck away small appliances into extra storage, and give your kitchen walls a fresh new coat of paint.

2019 FAVORITE COLORS FOR KITCHEN UPDATES

UPDATE YOUR KITCHEN – PICK FROM 2019’S FAVORITE COLORS

EXPERIENCED RENOVATION CONTRACTORS SAY “EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED”

Whether you are remodeling your kitchen or just giving it a simple refresh, you need a color palette to work with. 2019’s favorite colors for kitchen updates may be quite different from what you expect. Gone are the days of light and bright, or timeless white. The latest trends in kitchen colors are tending towards moodier hues. Check out our 2019 top picks for kitchen makeovers.

TRENDIEST SHADES FOR KITCHEN UPDATES THIS YEAR

If you consider the top design ideas for 2019, you’ll find plenty of inspiration for kitchen renovations. Concealed storage, integrated appliances, gunmetal hardware, colored cabinetry, pendant light fixtures and use of natural, organic materials are just some of the favorite trends in 2019. When it comes to the colors for your kitchen walls or cabinetry, soothing neutrals are making way for darker, more dramatic shades.

Here are some color choices you may want to consider when updating your kitchen:

  1. Hunter green: One of the most talked about shades for 2019, hunter green lends a welcoming, luxurious vibe. Use this for your cabinetry, and incorporate pops of walnut brown in the form of wood or leather pulls.
  2. Matte black: From kitchen fixtures and appliances to cabinetry and sink hardware, matte black finishes are available in all aspects of kitchen updates. Go for an uber-fashionable all-black kitchen, or pair your matte black cabinetry with gold or copper accents for a rich, alluring look.
  3. Navy or grey-washed blue: Maintain an easy, breezy feel by painting your cabinets in a navy, midnight or grey-washed blue, while leaving the rest of your kitchen elements in neutral shades.

Darker hues work particularly well in kitchens that get plenty of natural light. You can off-set them with metallic or crisp white accents to create a comfortable, inviting cooking and entertaining space. The right design, color and accent pairing will add texture and depth and transform the heart of your home into a picture of elegance.

BREAK DESIGN BARRIERS: DIDN’T WE SAY, EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED?

Add color to unusual areas in your kitchen and create one-of-a-kind elements that are sure to become conversation starters.

  • Select a distinct color to highlight the grout work in your backsplash.
  • Install a cool and calming pastel or a bright-colored hood over your stainless steel stove.
  • Go trendy with candy-toned or patterned, retro-style appliances (particularly refrigerators) that are now available on the market.
  • Give your counter barstools a facelift with bright colored upholstery.
  • Install jewel-toned, powder coated pendant lights as accent pieces over the kitchen island.
