Kitchen renovations are one of the most popular and rewarding improvements. A new kitchen design can make this space a more functional and compelling heart of your home, in addition to increasing your home’s resale value.
The average cost of a kitchen renovation is between $13,475 and $38,170, according to HomeAdvisor. If you don’t want to spend that much, the experts at Wren Kitchens have revealed the best tips and tricks to make your kitchen look luxurious and refreshed without splurging.
Check out these simple solutions that will help give your kitchen a new look this year:
Countertops are where things get done in the kitchen, whether it’s office work or meal prep, so you want something that lasts. Quartz is extremely durable, looks great, and is a strong contender for those looking to spend the money on a high quality, long lasting product.

A new backsplash can completely transform an outdated kitchen and can protect your walls.
“For a subtle, sophisticated look, choose color palettes that complement your counters and cabinets to create a fresh feel without remodeling the entire room. For a more adventurous style, naturally inspired colors such as copper and brass are a popular trend right now,” according to Wren Kitchens.
New pulls can be made from a variety of materials and finishes, and they’re a great way to update the look of your kitchen.
“When you’re looking for something more personalized to your style, you can mix and match a choice of handles with your cabinetry to create a completely unique, bespoke design. Finishing touches are what customers appreciate, and those little touches help to save money by creating something different,” says Wren Kitchens.
Vinyl is the trick to showcasing floors
While flooring can be expensive, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for less.
According to Wren Kitchens, “Vinyl flooring is becoming increasingly popular and is an easy and more economical way to add something extra to your kitchen.”
With the flick of a switch, pendant lighting can change the mood of a room. This simple and inexpensive feature can make your kitchen look more expensive without costing a fortune.
“Depending on the vibe of your kitchen, you can opt for glittering glass pendant lights for something more elegant or wired exposed bulbs for more rustic kitchens.”
