If you’ve got a kitchen that’s looking a little shabby and in need of an upgrade, we’re here to help. We’ll teach you how to do it on the cheap. It’s no secret that kitchens are one of the most expensive rooms to upgrade. But with a little creativity and some know-how, you can give your kitchen an update without having to break the bank.

Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets are one of the biggest culprits for an expensive kitchen remodel. But did you know that there’s a way to get new yet inexpensive high quality cabinets. RTA kitchen cabinets are often much more affordable than kitchen cabinets that are pre-assembled. This is because they require less labor to install, so the manufacturer can pass on the savings to you. But just because they’re affordable doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality! RTA kitchen cabinets are often made of the same high-quality materials as pre-assembled kitchen cabinets. So if you’re looking for an affordable way to upgrade your kitchen, RTA kitchen cabinets are a great option!

Flooring is another big expense when it comes to upgrading a kitchen. But with a few easy tips, you can give your kitchen a whole new look on a budget. Start by checking out your local hardware store for quality laminate flooring. It’s durable, easy to install, and comes in a variety of colors at very affordable prices! If you’re looking for something more modern or that fits with the rest of your home decor better, consider installing tile floors instead. Ceramic tiles are fairly cheap if you’re willing to do the installation yourself, and they come in a variety of colors and styles.


Countertops are often one of the most expensive aspects of a kitchen remodel. But there are ways to get around spending a fortune on them. Laminate countertops are an affordable option that come in a variety of colors and designs. They’re also easy to install, so if you’re willing to do the work yourself you can save even more. If laminate countertops aren’t your style or they don’t fit with the rest of your decor, consider granite tiles instead! They may not be as sturdy as real stone counters but at a fraction of the price they are an affordable alternative. Just be sure to get the correct adhesive before you install them!

Another expensive kitchen upgrade are appliances, but did you know that there’s an easy way around spending a lot of money on these? Many times it pays to check out your local thrift store for refurbished appliances. You’ll find that you can get just as good of quality items for a much lower price.
