A new kitchen is amazing. It’s clean. It’s new. It’s shiny. And it’s costly. Plus, getting a newly renovated kitchen often requires a lot of upheaval—both physically and financially.
Instead of undertaking a massive kitchen renovation project—and the $20,000+ price tag that comes with it—consider these five low-stress, low-cost kitchen updates.

Cue the hue
One of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to update your kitchen is to paint the walls. In large kitchens or kitchens with brighter cabinets and countertops consider bold, darker colours to help create a eye-popping contrast. Or, go with light, bright colours like soft whites or yellows to liven up even the smallest kitchen.
Remember, too, you don’t have to paint the entire room to achieve a remodelled look. Consider painting one accent wall to revamp the space at a significantly less cost than painting the entire kitchen.
