Easy, Low Budget Ways to Turn Around a Problem Kitchen

So you just purchased another rental property but there's a problem your rental has a kitchen that's stuck in the 1970's.

Although the rest of the rental property is in great shape the reality is that having a property with a dated kitchen can easily turn off someone from renting your property because, most buyers in this day and age want an updated kitchen.

In this post we will offer you simple and low budget ways to turn around the problem kitchen in your rental property.

Tip #1 — Paint Cabinetry White

One of the easiest ways to update a kitchen is to paint the kitchen cabinets white because, this simple fix will enable you to cover up dark woods and paint over outdated wall colors plus white is a universal color that goes with almost any design style.

Tip #2 — Add Creative Light Fixtures

From chandeliers to pendant lamps, there are a lot of different ways you can add some creativity to your kitchen and even make it look "classier" than it did when you purchased the rental property.

Tip — To find creative lighting fixtures consider going to your neighborhood architectural salvage store or searching for lighting online via websites like Amazon or eBay.

Tip #3 — Maximize Your Kitchen Cabinets

One of the biggest problems with the kitchen cabinets in any kitchen is that they are literally big holes which are impossible for any tenant to use.

The solution to this problem is for you to invest in wire racks and shelving for inside your kitchen cabinets so that renters will have plenty of options for placing their cans, spices and use their kitchen cabinets efficiently.
