5 Secrets of Budget Kitchen Renovations For Your Granny Flat

If the aim in renovating your granny flat kitchen is to balance a minimum spend with maximum benefit there are ways and means. Many believe it’s not the amount of money you have but how clever you are about stretching every dollar. There are five simple ways to upgrade your granny flat kitchen and do it affordably and in a short time – and the best thing about it is you can do it yourself if you’re competent enough at renovations.

1. Paint Power

A coat of the right colour paint can do wonders, but it must be applied perfectly. Paint can transform your kitchen instantly, but you can paint more than just the timber trim and walls. Paint can hide a lot of things, from tired timbers to dated tiles – yes you can paint tiles and even discoloured basins and bathtubs with special tile paint. Light colours make a room look bigger, but you don’t have to make everything stark white. Simply update the colour with something you love. And, even if your granny flat was designed to have plenty of hidden storage, if you need more, consider wire pull-out baskets for any cabinets that are hard to reach.

2. Laying the Floor Down

There’s a lot of different flooring on offer now, with cool designs, and made from durable and cheap materials. You can buy versatile vinyl flooring that sticks on the surface. You can run it straight over existing solid flooring in wet or dry areas of your granny flat kitchen and it’s also suitable for the bathroom. Laminate floorboards are another idea that’s cost-effective for flooring.
