The kitchen is not yet ready for renewal the budget for replacement is not yet sufficient and the style is still changing. With some cleverness, the kitchen can best be tackled with limited financial resources.
What do you want to change?
Before getting started, it is important to first consider what exactly you want to change. Do you have a seventies kitchen, is the kitchen up-to-date, but all accessories need to be thoroughly overhauled, etc., etc. Depending on what needs to be done, you can get ideas from the various stores and in magazines.
In the picture what needs to be done? Then make a logistically logical plan, for example about things that need to be painted, but also about the budget you have for the kitchen. Here and there some extras that are not included in the planning can increase the costs.
If you want to make changes to the cabinets, first check the material. Painting cabinets is possible, but you must have the right paint. If the cabinets are made of plastic, you should, for example, start with a plastic primer after degreasing. Wood, on the other hand, is a matter of good sanding, degreasing, and painting. If you want to keep a wood grain, there are also varnishes that leave the grain visible.

- The walls can also be provided with a color. Special paint is available for tiles.
- Ugly tiles but not good to paint? One option is to attach a thin metal plate or mirror in front of the tiles. Make a new sealant edge between the plate and the worktop, this prevents moisture from getting behind the plate or mirror.
- Plastered walls can be whitened again with wall paint or provided with a color. If you are looking for more color in the kitchen, a toned-down color of color on the kitchen cabinets may be an option.
If the floor continues to another room, it is often difficult to treat, but if this is not the case, it can be seen whether a wooden floor can be painted, whether a laminate floor can be installed, silk in a matching color, checkered, etc. can be laid. There are often enough options, it’s more about what your taste is.
If you have your plan in mind, the accessories are often what completes the picture. Take, for example, all stainless steel items for the countertop or if you have a fifties kitchen you are looking for accessories in that style or if you want a rural look, wooden accessories are interesting again.
This is also subject to taste, but the specialty store and department stores have coordinated different lines. Accessories also include window decoration (if present). Also, check out which style suits the kitchen, take a good look at the accessories.
For example, for a sleek metal look, metal-colored blinds are available. Finally, don’t forget the lamp. Also, replace the lamp and any spots in the chosen style. In short, with limited resources, the kitchen can be given a completely different look that can last for a long time. Good luck!
