1. STICK TO THE EXISTING KITCHEN LAYOUT
2. RE-USE YOUR APPLIANCES
The simplest way to begin a budget reno is to paint. Instantly lighten up a gloomy, tired space by giving the walls, ceiling, door, and window frames a couple of coats of a bright, neutral color or white. If you’re painting over timber paneling, you’ll need to apply a stain and tannin blocker first – your local hardware store can advise on this, as well as on the most suitable paint for kitchen areas.
