Are you looking for a way to upgrade your kitchen decor for less? Have you looked into what you can use to upgrade your kitchen and find some inspiration to remodel without spending a lot of money? 

Whether you want to change the color or design of your cabinets or you are looking at something to protect your walls, there are easy and affordable ways to give your kitchen a new look.

Kitchen Walls

If you love the color of your walls but hate how wet they get when you are cooking or on how the fat from cooking discolors your walls, something you could look into is a kitchen backsplash. There are many different designs and colors of backsplash available; whether you want it to match your countertops or want something to show a little flare, this is one kitchen upgrade worth looking at.

Another way of protecting your walls would be to use water-resistant paint; this can be purchased from most DIY stores. Again, this is available in different colors and prices depending on what brand you purchase. 

Not only does this help you keep your walls clean and dry because you can just wipe them clean, but if you have children who are prone to drawing on walls, you can clean this down with a cloth and cleaning liquid without any damage to your walls or paint.


Changing your flooring could not be easier when you can purchase linoleum to lay down on top of a flat surface. However, this will not be possible if you have a carpet in your kitchen. If you have hardwood or stone floors, getting some linoleum flooring or tiling from your local hardware store could save you from having to buy actual flooring tiles or new wood floors. 

Due to the durability of linoleum flooring, you don’t need to worry about how to take care of it, unlike with hardwood.


Whether you want to sand down and stain or paint your cabinet surfaces, this can be done in an affordable way when you research how. You can also buy stick-on cabinet covers if you would prefer not to paint. 

They quite simply stick to your doors and are easily removed when you decide to change them. Some types are more permanent than others, but due to how easy they are to take care of may be a good addition when looking to upgrade. 

If you just want to change the color of the wood, there is always the option of staining the wood. For this, you only need a wood stain and time, and again, a little research can go a long way in helping you do this effectively so that you get the best without spending more than you need to.


Whether you are looking at a full revamp of your kitchen or you just want to make it a little easier to clean, there are many options available on a budget. All of which, with the right research and tools, you can do yourself, saving you the money it would cost to get someone else to do it.
