How We Came Up with the List

Remodels can be time-consuming, tedious and difficult. Depending on the number of materials, coverage and installation costs, it can also be pricey. We scoured the web for cost-effective ideas that will not only save you money but save you time and effort as well.

Doing a project yourself adds a sense of accomplishment and pride along with the joy of the kitchen remodel. We have a list of ideas along with pictures and tutorials to help you get the most out of the kitchen remodel ideas you can start today.

Kitchen Backsplashes

Adding a backsplash used to be a professional installation only job. Now it is a DIY project that you can accomplish with very little effort. However, if you want to go all out, you can spend as much or as little time, effort and money as you desire.

Some backsplashes use tile pre-formed that you just piece together. Purchasing enough of these tile blocks could be costly. You can also use low-cost tiles and cut them yourself. Adding a bit of personal touch and a unique design that you create yourself.

Knowing how to cut tile may not be in your wheelhouse of abilities, but with the right tools and a little patience, you can accomplish your backsplash goals in no time at all. The trick is to have a plan and design ready to go and then you just piece it all together. It is a lot easier than you think.

Open Shelving

One of the most modern twists to a kitchen remodel is to remove the closed-off cabinets and create an open shelving design. With lighting and a lack of cabinet doors your kitchen space will open up with a warm and welcoming appearance.

Open shelving is a simple and cost-effective manner to give your entire kitchen a new look without a lot of effort. You have plenty of options. The most simple being to remove the current cabinet doors and add a fresh coat of paint.

However, there are specialty shelving choices available that can give you an entire makeover with very little effort. If you can use an electric drill, you can remove and replace your cabinets in just a few hours.

Breakfast Nook Remodel

A breakfast nook is a dated yet useful design. If you already have a breakfast nook a makeover of the existing space may be in order. Gone are the days where the space needs to be boring and dated. You can easily remodel the existing area to make it warm, comforting and inviting.

If you don’t have a breakfast nook already the cost may rise a little and be more involved than just adding decorations and new paint schemes. However, you don’t need to worry much about adding walls and electrical outlets. Instead, you can focus on the space and making it separate with new ideas such as folding walls and other stylish designs.

The idea is to not only have a space to sit and enjoy your bagel and morning coffee but also to have a space that is still in the kitchen but away from formal dining. It should be fun and cozy at the same time, which is not hard to accomplish at all.

Sliding Doors

If you keep looking at your cabinets and wanting to do something to make them appear more inviting, but you don’t want to go with an open cabinet design you have another option. You can opt for sliding, barn-style doors instead of the standard and dated pull open doors you currently stare at every day.

Barn doors sliding on rails will not only look great in your kitchen but can be added easily to any décor style or kitchen theme you have. Of course, they will go great with a rustic theme or even a farmhouse theme, but they also pair well with modern, contemporary and classic themes.

You can purchase the rails and doors from any home improvement store or even find them at one of the many online dealers such as Amazon, Wayfair or even Etsy. Removal of the old cabinet doors takes literally minutes and the new barn-style doors can be hung just as fast.

Coffee Corner

If you enjoy your morning coffee (or all-day coffee, like we do), you may want to think about dedicating a portion of your kitchen space to the morning delight. Adding a barista style coffee corner may not be something you have thought about before, but chances are, most of your friends and neighbors haven’t, either.

Adding a coffee corner can be done with relatively low cost, despite how expensive it may look. For those on a budget, finding the right shelving and cabinets can be a fun and rewarding experience.

Of course, if you want the full aspect of a dedicated coffee corner, there are packages available that are ready-made for just that purpose. No one says you have to sacrifice style for cost though and the right cabinet design from budget-friendly shops like Walmart or Ikea will go a long way towards your overall design.
