Kitchen Remodel

White Quartz Counters Highlight beautiful cabinetry

One of the most used rooms in the home, the kitchen is on everyone’s remodeling bucket list. A complete kitchen remodel can cost $25,000 or more and not everyone is in a position to invest that much money into their home.
If you’re looking to remodel your kitchen on a budget its best to focus on the things you use most or that have a big visual impact on the kitchen.

These 3 kitchen upgrades can be done in a weekend and can make your kitchen look at function great.

Butcher Block Counter Tops

Kitchen Upgrades: Butcher Block Counters

Many people are installing stone counter tops, granite or quartz being the most popular materials. But at cost of $3000 or more for a 10×10 kitchen it is a big budget item. It’s also not DIY friendly; stone counters need to be fabricated using special tools and techniques.

A great alternative that is rapidly becoming popular are butcher block counter tops. Butcher block tops start at around $400 for a 12 ft counter so a 10 x 10 kitchen could be done for under $1000. They look beautiful and are very functional: they stand up to water, heat and heavy use well.


Tile Back Splash

Kitchen Upgrades: Back splash

A great introduction to tiling and a great way to upgrade the look of your kitchen is to install a tile back splash. Even if you are intimidated by tile work there are peel and stick options that look great too. Back splash tile can be installed for as little a $125 but more expensive tiles might run $300 for a 10×10 kitchen.


New Faucet and Sink

The Galley Sink

Slightly more expensive but well worth the cost. If you haven’t changed you kitchen faucet in a while you might be very happy with an upgrade. A good stainless steel kitchen sink costs $300 or more and you can expect to pay a similar amount for a kitchen faucet.
