Updating your kitchen doesn’t have to be a money-sucking headache. In fact, you can give your kitchen a new lease on life in no time for around $2,000. Here’s how:

Update your paint. A new coat of paint will spruce up any kitchen. Apply a lighter shade to open up a cramped space or choose a deeper hue to add a splash of class to dated décor. How much does a kitchen-saving coat of paint cost? According to HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide, most homeowners spend between $945 and $2,427 on their painting projects.

P.S. For an added boost, repaint or refinish your cabinets (here’s a quick how-to).

Install a new backsplash. Old paint and peeling laminate can drag a kitchen down. Update the room with an awe-inspiring backsplash. Classic subway tile, modern glass tile and useful (but beautiful) stainless steel are great ways to change up the look of your kitchen. Ready for the cost? According to HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide, expect to spend between $592 and $1,317 to install a new backsplash.

Add stylish hardware. Install a new faucet or cabinet pulls in your kitchen for a quick-but- gorgeous update to your kitchen. Swapping out your cabinet pulls is a simple DIY job — all you’ll need is a screwdriver and a little time. Installing a faucet requires some know-how. If you’re unsure about tackling this job, call a pro.
