Redesigning a kitchen doesn't have to cost a fortune.
Small changes are often enough to give the room a new look.
When you move into a new apartment, you usually take the kitchen with you.
But their appearance and condition is often anything but dreamlike.
Buying a new kitchen, on the other hand, is quite expensive.
With a few tricks and a bit of manual skill, however, the old kitchen can be whipped into shape at low cost.

Redesign the kitchen: tips on how to do it cheaply
Keep old appliances:
You really want to buy a new kitchen?
You can save a lot of money by keeping old appliances that are still in good condition - including the sink.
You can then put the money you save into a stylish mixer tap.
Simply scrub the old appliances such as the oven and stove well and polish them to a high gloss.
You can easily brighten up dark rooms by painting walls, door and window frames in a light color or white.
Repainting or pasting kitchen cabinets:
Anyone who has taken over an ancient kitchen unit can make the best of it by repainting doors and drawer fronts or redesigning them with adhesive film.
That only costs a fraction of a new kitchen.
If the cupboard doors are made in a standard size, they can alternatively be replaced with new ones.
You can also paint or glue ugly, old tiles on the back wall of the kitchen.
Before painting, however, the landlord should be asked for permission.
