Anyone who lived through the 80's loved the 80’s- what’s not to love? Well, maybe the design trends. Remember those oak trimmed laminate cabinets and wallpaper borders? If you’re still experiencing an 80’s hangover with your kitchen décor, now is the time to step into the new world. You don’t have to kiss your savings goodbye to usher in change.
Remodeling 80's Kitchen
Whether you want to make your kitchen more appealing to potential home buyers, or just upgrade it for you to enjoy- your priorities should be the aesthetic and functionality. Consider the upgrades below that can be completed relatively inexpensively.
Replacing old cabinets can be the expensive business, but there are alternatives. Consider re-facing or painting them. The cheapest option would be to paint them.
If you want a real change and you have a healthier budget, consider replacing the cabinet doors- the office boxes can be painted to match. Or the cabinet faces could be chosen in a color that will contrast and complement.
The optimum choice would be entirely new cabinets, which allows a total remodel to create the space and design that is perfect for your needs.
You want new appliances, and home buyers want to see them. More importantly, everyone wants energy efficient appliances. It’s time to kiss those nasty almond energy hogs from the 80’s goodbye.
You don’t have to invest in the top of the line appliances on offer. You can still choose popular, energy saving appliances.
Look for ENERGY STAR ratings; these are going to save you over time. Shop for scratch and dent appliances, or display models, to get a further discount. Plan your remodel for sale times to see if you can grab a deal. Do your research and compare prices- and don’t forget to check out the outlets.
Stainless steel might not be as attractive as it once was, but it’s certainly not going out of style. Opting for white appliances will save you money, but stainless steel is more attractive to prospective buyers.
Perhaps you’ve long wanted granite countertops- the right news is the price has dropped considerably. There are plenty of other options to choose from, though, and the even laminate is the bag in a big way and incredibly affordable. It’s durable, inexpensive, and requires little maintenance.
