Creating a DIY kitchen on a budget

There are many ways that you can keep costs low when creating a DIY kitchen.

You may be considering new kitchen design ideas, but you don’t want a huge cost associated with it, so our kitchen suppliers have set out some things that can help to keep the costs low.

Consider shaker-style kitchen doors

You will often find that shaker style kitchen cabinets can be a less expensive option to opt for. The simplistic designs make this style extremely versatile and complement any kitchen perfectly, from traditional looks to more modern aesthetics.

Our DIY kitchen ranges have a selection of shaker style cupboards and doors available to choose from and work with your new kitchen.

Laminate Worktops

If you are looking for cheap kitchen worktops but still want a high-quality and impressive finish, laminate could be a great option for you. This material can be long-lasting and durable but they are also much easier to fit and maintain, an all-around winner if you are wanting a cheaper DIY kitchen project.

Invest in energy-efficient technology

Thank yourself in the long run and start implementing energy-efficient techniques in your kitchen. There are many ways you can do this, such as choosing dishwashers that are more energy-friendly or switching to LED lights throughout your kitchen.

It’s not just the technology itself but the practices of them too that you can be more cautious of. As standard as it sounds, turning things off when they aren’t in use can save your usage and overall running costs of your kitchen. There are other ways to help this too, such as only turning on your dishwasher when it is full, despite how tempting it can be to put it on straight away!

Stick to your current kitchen layout

To help with a cheap DIY kitchen, you can choose to stick with the layout that you currently have to avoid dramatic changes that can all tally up. Reduce your DIY kitchen cost significantly by working with the layout and not having to put money into electrics, walls, plumbing and other aspects.

Choose neutral colours

A simple colour scheme can work well across kitchens of all styles and characteristics, whilst also complementing any accessories and feature items throughout the kitchen. Achieve a bright and open look by sticking with neutral shades and the simplicity allows you to play around with the kitchen as much as you would like to.

Kitchens on finance

You may not be in a position to pay the full amount of your kitchen upfront, but many UK kitchen companies now offer pay monthly kitchen options. At Kitchens & Bedrooms for DIY, you can make full use of your kitchen now but spread the cost to suit your finances. Learn more about our DIY kitchens finance options and how they can work for you.
