If budget is a concern, painting your kitchen cabinets is always a more economic option to giving your kitchen the facelift you’re looking for. The average size kitchen can be painted for around $5,000. Doing this along with new hardware, countertops and backsplash can really transform your kitchen giving it a more up to date look without breaking the bank.
The cost savings here in relation to the overall project amount is not significant enough to weigh out the risk of doing it yourself. You might save a couple of thousand dollars but there is a lot more to it than you might think.
