It is possible to come up with a kitchen design in Muscatine IA that will not break the bank. Although a brand new kitchen, built from the ground up with all new appliances and amenities is great, there are times when you want to refresh your kitchen on a limited budget, this can be done.


The most outstanding thing in a kitchen is the cabinets, they invariably take up a significant amount of space and it’s impossible to ignore them. The cabinets are a great place to start, simply spruce them up. The simplest way to give the cabinets a new look is to paint them but this is often not really satisfactory. Refinishing just the doors is quite a simple procedure and there is no need to make the cabinets unusable in the process as the doors can easily be removed and refinished in the basement or garage. The simple way is to veneer the cabinets, there is self adhesive material available at any DIY store that is easy to apply and quite attractive when completed.

While you are at the cabinet doors, don’t forget the old hinges and pulls. Hardware is simple, inexpensive and easy to change as most pulls are designed to be installed with a common screw pattern. The hinge screw pattern may be different but that is easy to overcome, patch the old holes and install the new hinges.


The last time your kitchen was painted maybe canary yellow was the “in” color, today it is not. The colors in the kitchen can inexpensively be changed; a fresh coat of paint, new curtains and reupholstered dining chairs can go a long way to make a kitchen look bright and cheerful. While you are at it, a few brightly colored throw rugs take the edge of the floor which may not be in the best of shape.


The best of kitchen design in Muscatine IA, whether brand new or simply refreshed comes from organization. Get the kitchen tidied up, get rid of all the clutter and add a few accent pieces that not only look great but are efficient.
