5 Ways To Make Your Home Look Luxurious For Less

You don’t need an unlimited budget to have a beautiful home. There are plenty of kitchen designs composed of cost effective alternatives that look just as luxurious as their expensive counterparts. Here, we’re sharing five ways to design an impressive kitchen without spending a lot of money.

  1. Get The Magazine-Quality Layout You Love Without Hiring A Designer

When remodeling any room in your home, there can be a lot of pressure to get the layout right, especially in more intricate spaces like the kitchen. Kitchen designs in themselves can be costly when you consider hiring a professional to design your floor plan and help you pick the right pieces.

If you’re buying cabinets from The RTA Store, you can skip that expense with our free kitchen design tool. You’ll receive a custom layout, photorealistic renderings, and an itemized list of exactly what you need to purchase to complete the look yourself.

  1. Install RTA Cabinets Rather Than Pre-Assembled

If you’re willing to put in the legwork, you can have beautiful new kitchen cabinets at a fraction of the cost. Ready to Assemble or RTA cabinets require some assembly by the homeowner, but when completed, look just as great as pre-assembled cabinets. When shopping for RTA cabinets, you’ll see that the finished product is visually the same as pre-assembled, so no one will know you spent less money except you.

  1. Skip The Expensive Stone

Countertops can be a huge expense when remodeling a kitchen. Natural stones like granite may have their appeal, but there are other just as luxurious looking options that cost much less. One popular alternative is laminate, since it mimics expensive stone surfaces but lacks the big price tag. Laminate is also less maintenance than caring for natural stone, so many homeowners see this material as a win all around.

There are also less conventional countertop options such as concrete that have made a way into modern kitchen designs. Before you carve out a big chunk of your remodeling budget for stone countertops, you may want to consider one of these less expensive alternatives instead.

  1. DIY Crown Molding

Kitchen designs that feature crown molding are almost always more appealing. But this attractive addition isn’t cheap. Luckily, with a little creativity, you can get professional results without paying for them. Purchase crown molding, paintable caulk, and nails from your local home improvement store and you have everything you need to add this lavish addition to your kitchen walls.

  1. Splurge On A Beautiful Backsplash

Kitchen designs that feature an eye-catching backsplash steal the show. From glass to aluminum tile, there are so many interesting materials in different colors, textures, and shapes to choose from. Since they only cover a small space, they are also one of the few elements in your kitchen that you can splurge on while still staying within your budget. The return on investment is also ten fold, as the right backsplash can accent your new RTA cabinets, and bring the different colors and elements of your kitchen together.
