Low Cost and Splurge-Worthy Kitchen Interior Design Ideas [Infographic]

Inspiring cabinet, window, and flooring updates that fit any budget.

If your kitchen lacks character or a modern look, these kitchen interior design ideas will help you update your space on any budget. From affordable updates that make a small impact to splurge-worthy changes that transform the entire look and feel of your kitchen, you can achieve your goals with these inspiring ideas for your kitchen cabinets, windows, and flooring.

One kitchen interior design idea is to paint or replace your kitchen cabinets, depending on your budget.

Kitchen Cabinets

  • Low cost: If you don’t have the budget for new cabinets, you’ll be amazed what a difference staining or repainting your cabinets can make! A fresh new color could be just what your kitchen needs. Refacing your cabinet door fronts – and leaving the boxes in place – is another way to keep your kitchen cabinet upgrade affordable.
  • Splurge: If your budget allows, replacing your cabinets is one of the most dramatic updates you can make in your kitchen. Work with a savvy kitchen interior design team to change the existing layout to be more functional, select cabinet styles that meet all your storage needs, and install countertops that match your new look.

Kitchen Windows

  • Low cost: Add new window treatments to accent your kitchen windows without blocking all-important natural light. Choose valances, blinds, or roman shades that perfectly balance functionality with pleasing aesthetics.
  • Splurge: If your home’s energy efficiency could use a boost, consider replacing the windows in your kitchen. Energy-efficient glass technology and a tighter seal help to keep conditioned air inside where you want it. Just remember – you’ll need to replace all the windows in your home for the biggest improvement in energy efficiency.

Kitchen Flooring

  • Low cost: If you like your existing flooring, simply polish your tiles, or sand and refinish your hardwood. Make a habit of keeping up with kitchen floor maintenance to get the most mileage out of your flooring materials. You’ll be astonished at the difference a bit of spring cleaning can make for the overall appearance of your kitchen.
  • Splurge: Are you tired of your worn out laminate or vinyl flooring from the 1980s? It could be time to splurge on new flooring. Opt for porcelain, ceramic, or stone tiles or upgrade to hardwood planks installed in a straight, random, parquet or herringbone design. Bamboo and cork flooring are alternative options that come in many beautiful colors and styles.

Whether you’re planning to keep it small or splurge on your project, you can manage your dream kitchen expenses with these useful budgeting strategies.
