Budget Luxury Kitchen Ideas

Having the luxury of a modern, designer kitchen can sometimes be a pricey and complex project. Renovating your kitchen and remodeling it as a more exuberant one can take a huge toll on your savings. But with these few simple tips, you can get the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of on a budget.

Here are a few ways to get a budget-friendly kitchen that has the look and feel of a high-class luxury one:

Laminates and Overlays: Wooden flooring and granite counter tops are not always affordable options for everyone. Instead of hardwood floors, you could choose wooden laminates that look just as good and are easier to maintain. These days, there are a lot of different shades and patterns of wooden laminates to choose from so you can match your kitchen décor perfectly.

For those granite counter tops, you can choose from a range of granite overlays that look fabulous, but come at a fraction of the cost.

Ceramic Tiles: The high-end kitchens we see in magazines often have the most beautiful marble tiling that really brightens up the space. If marble is not in your budget, you could always replace it with a classy ceramic tile pattern instead. There are many different patterns and designs of ceramic tiles to choose from, many of which manage to look luxurious, and even imitate marble, without costing too much.

Reface Cabinets: When you redo your kitchen, try refacing those old cabinets and cupboards instead of getting new ones altogether. Adding a laminate over your old cupboards will cost a fraction of what you would spend on brand new ones. Since wooden laminates are available in so many colors and grains, you can have the cabinets you wished to have without spending a fortune on them.

Steel Appliances: Stainless steel appliances are very popular in expensive modern kitchens, as are brushed steel appliances. Many manufacturers have noticed this trend and now make appliances with a stainless steel finish instead. This makes the classiness of stainless steel appliances more accessible to the masses. Appliances with stainless steel finishes look like their real counterparts, but are actually easier to maintain since they don’t pick up fingerprints as easily.

Affordable Fixtures: Luxury kitchens often use custom made high-end fixtures that are exclusive and unavailable to the rest of us. Lately, however, many home improvement shops and manufacturing companies provide options that look like designer fixtures, but come at reasonable costs. Companies like American Standard and Delta Moen make beautiful fixtures and faucets that look classy and help you save money.

With right planning, your kitchen can be turned into a beautiful, modern space of luxury at a reasonable cost. Take the time to look at different brands and options before making decisions, and your kitchen could be the envy of all your neighbors, without costing you a fortune.
