Updating Your Kitchen and Bathroom on a Budget

Your bathroom is where you go to get self-care, and your guest bathroom is where your friends and family will find themselves at some point during their visit, so you want this space to be welcoming and inviting. You can upgrade your bathroom by simply painting the walls, trim and cabinets in a more modern shade that complements the original countertops and tile. It also doesn’t cost much to upgrade the cabinet hardware, towel hooks, and tissue holder. After you make these changes, your bathroom will start to feel different! If you have some leftover cash, try updating the lighting to something a little more modern, or investing in a new set of towels.


Your kitchen should be functional when it comes to the amount of time you’ll be spending in there cooking up a storm for the friends and family that will be joining you for the holiday season! Make it feel new again without overtaxing your budget by trying out the following simple upgrades:

  • New organizational items in the cabinets to help free up space

  • Fresh paint on the walls around your kitchen in a more modern and calming color

  • Re-facing cabinets and upgrading hardware costs less than replacing them

  • Create a wonderful indoor herb garden, which will add some beautiful smells and color to your kitchen and keep you with fresh herbs for your holiday meals

  • Add little pops of color with a rug in front of the sink, new drapes, or updated kitchen towels

  • Update your island or peninsula and the chairs that are around it, this is usually the focal point of your kitchen and an easy way to upgrade without spending a lot of money


It’s Fall Y’all!

The goal is to slowly say goodbye to summer without overworking yourself or your spaces. You’ll want to clear up space for more activity. You spend more time in the kitchen during the fall and winter, so you’ll want to free up space to make all of the wonderful meals that you do! These small upgrades will help you lift your spirits and help you get prepared for the holiday season.


The biggest change you can make when it comes to your kitchen and bathrooms during this fall season is to organize and declutter, so that you’re ready to host guests whenever you need to.
