Easy Kitchen Additions on a Budget


Your kitchen is an important part of your home. It’s where you prepare meals for the family or learn how to bake that recipe you found on Pinterest. It’s where you gather around the counter or island to socialize with your friends or family. So when your kitchen is outdated or impractical, it’s hard not to feel that. But if you’re on a tight budget, you might approach the idea of kitchen additions with some anxiety. The good news is, you don’t have to. Even small kitchen additions can make a big difference. Here are a few easy kitchen additions you can make to your Lancaster County home without breaking the bank.


Affordable Countertops

Everyone loves a granite countertop, but granite countertops come with a cost. However, you can have a much more affordable faux granite countertop using granite paint that looks surprisingly real. It can be applied to plain laminate countertops, making it easy to clean but with the style of granite. You can also consider capitalizing on the rustic style by choosing a butcher block countertop. Choose affordable wood planks and give them a nice, dark stain and voila. A trendy, rustic countertop for much less money than materials like granite and quartz.

Cabinets and Drawers

One of the common issues with kitchens is lack of storage, or impractical storage. Changing your cabinets and drawers can make a huge difference to your kitchen, despite the fact that it’s a reasonably small change. Instead of rifling through cabinets under the sink, install drawers, easy to open and easy to find exactly what you need. Switch your solid overhead cabinets out for glass cabinets in order to add light and the appearance of space to your kitchen. Floating shelves are another popular option, particularly because they don’t take up much space.

New Backsplash

If you don’t want to paint all the walls or all of your cabinets but still want some change along the walls, the answer is to have a new backsplash installed. Backsplashes come in all kinds of styles, ranging from colorful and modern to simple and rustic. They can even be practical, like the recent trend of pegboard backsplashes that allow you to hang utensils and spice containers. Best of all, they’re a very affordable change.
