Upgrade you kitchen appliances on a budget

You can update your kitchen appliances on a budget. Plenty of options exist that will allow you to cook in a modern setting without spending a fortune or having to take out a home improvement loan.

You can easily achieve a new look by changing the color of the appliances. Rather than stick with copper or white, try stainless steal for an upscale look that enhances your home’s resale value.

You can make it easier on yourself shopping-wise by choosing a set. Many manufacturers turn out appliance sets and you can land a great deal this way.

Make a smaller kitchen seem bigger and get more work out of it with a range microwave. It provides a hood and a microwave, plus its space saving design helps give you more counter top space. Try the Samsung 1.8 cubic feet microwave for $249 or the manufacturer’s 1.6 cubic feet option for $199.

Enhance this by adding an oven and cooktop. Those working with a tiny house design or redoing a condo kitchen can maximize the space by installing a compact oven. Try the Summit RE203W for $369.05. It requires only 20 inches of space, but provides the four burner system you’re used to using. In homes of standard size, you can whip up culinary treats on this Amana 4.8 cubic feet electric range in stainless steel.

Forget washing dishes by hand. You need a dishwasher. If your small space stopped you until now, try this countertop dishwasher from EdgeStar for $259. If you have room and prefer a traditional model, Frigidaire makes a four-cycle machine in black, white or stainless steel for $449 to $520, depending on finish.

You can install the retro look of the Smeg refrigerator without spending the $5,000 price tag. Choose the GE Artistry line instead. You can get a four piece appliance set for only $8,135 that includes the retro fridge, convection double oven, range hood and dishwasher. You get your entire cooking space in perfectly matching appliances.

Another way to save money, but still get new appliances is to shop the scratch and dent sale. You can save hundreds on a purchase due to a tiny cosmetic scratch or dent which you can then buff out.

Finding the right appliances does not have to be tough. You can easily redo your cooking space for only a few thousand dollars. You just need to shop around and budget.
