One of the best way to update the look of a plain and boring kitchen is to change the wall colors. Pick a paint color that is lively and fresh instead of a muted or pastel color. A bit of color in the kitchen can give the kitchen a completely new look. Choose paint colors like tangerine, sunny yellow and citrus greens to give the kitchen a warm look. Painting a kitchen is one of the most cost-effective way of renovating a kitchen. Alternatively, you can even install a wallpaper on one or two walls of the kitchen. A modern wallpaper pattern can enhance the kitchen decor and make it look stylish and contemporary. And the best thing about using wallpaper is that there are many inexpensive and discount wallpapers available in home improvement stores.
One way to check if the wall paint colors go with your dark cabinets is to simply place some paint chip samples on it. Another way to do this is to take a picture of the kitchen cabinets and walls. Then paint the wall in a design software and compare. This way you will get a preview of how the two colors go with each other.

But with some creativity and ingenuity kitchen renovations can be done within a very low budget too. The key to cheap remodeling of a kitchen is to focus on giving the kitchen an updated look without making any major constructional changes. Sometimes simple changes like installing a new flooring or just painting the cabinets can give the kitchen a whole new look. Whatever your budget might be, there are some inexpensive kitchen remodeling ideas that can help you in giving your old kitchen a makeover.
If the flooring of your kitchen is badly scratched or stained, then you need to replace the flooring. Replacing the flooring can be an expensive project, but there are many cheap flooring options available that can cut down your costs. Vinyl flooring and linoleum flooring are cheaper options and these type of flooring can be easily installed by you, thus helping you save on labor cost. You can also install laminate flooring which is not only cheap but also comes in a variety of patterns and designs to match your kitchen decor. If you budget does not permit a new flooring to be installed, then you can install a seagrass rug or sisal rug instead.
You could get the walls textured. Faux finishing techniques are the best options to highlight the focal wall of your kitchen or dining area. Use it to beautify the wall behind the dining table or enhance a large or small wall that is least cluttered. You can opt for a sponge finish, ragging, or combining any of the best techniques for walls. With these you have the liberty of using some unique shades like golden, silver, or silvery green.
There are certain colors that you just can’t go wrong with. One of these kitchen colors is beige. Beige is something that goes well with every color of kitchen cabinets. So, if you have black, dark red, or dark yellow cabinets or any other dark shade and want to go with a safe color then go with beige. Beige is a neutral color which is not eye-catching and hence suitable for all cabinet colors. Another shade which comes close is gray. Gray is also a neutral shade, that goes with many dark cabinets. Make sure you choose a medium to light shade of beige or gray.
