If the time has come for your kitchen to move on to a better life and it needs a change, surely one of your limitations is the budget. An aspect that, without a doubt, limits our possibilities but that does not have to mean giving up designing the kitchen of our dreams.
If you are clear that you want a large island, or a nice synthetic stone countertop (type Neolith, Silestone, Krion…), this one is going to take a good part of the budget. In general, it is about prioritizing what you need most/or what makes you happy and betting on some decorative tricks so that the lack of budget does not translate into large resignations.
Smart appliances, with more and more possibilities, the tendency to panel them, the trend coverings such as the palillería or the curves are not always the cheapest options.
Stone countertop yes, but tile backsplash better
If you don’t want to do without the stone countertop but you want to save on this concept, use an affordable tile (the subway tile, for example) for the backsplash and save a part
It looks like it saves money
Also, pay attention to what happens behind the furniture (not seen). In this area the walls are not tiled with new tiles. If it is a reform, you keep the previous ones and if it is a new work, here any tile with a very tight price and easy to install is worth it.
Appliances that make your life easier and simple furniture
If the use of electrometrics is going to be intensive, it is better to adjust the budget in the furniture. Give yourself the “whim” in what you know will make your life easier; an American fridge, a very quiet dishwasher, a steam oven… and save on furniture. Plain furniture can be very stylish with trendy handles.
White appliances instead of paneled
If there is no budget to panel the appliances, bet on white appliances in white kitchens or black in kitchens. The effect will be similar while saving money.
The shelves are trendy (and cheap) or other trends
If there is enough space, replace tall furniture with shelves. They are trending and it is cheaper. Other trendy elements, beautiful wall lights or lamps, beautiful paintings also in the kitchen, sculptural taps…
