Renovating a Kitchen on a $1000 Budget

For this renovation, I was faced with a kitchen stuck in a 1970s time warp – and the challenge of giving it a quick cosmetic refresh for under $1,000.


On this kind of budget, paint and a lot of DIY is your best friend. Here’s what I did, mainly using specialty paints from White Knight:

  • Cabinet resurfacing
  • Benchtop resurfacing
  • Tile painting the old tiles
  • Repainting of walls above cabinetry and window frame
  • Installation of DIY self-adhesive Gerflor vinyl flooring
  • Updating existing kitchen lighting;
  • Stainless steel painting of existing metal rangehood
  • Install new kitchen cabinet handles
  • Replace old window curtains with a modern blind.

Property Value Before Renovation: $965,000.00

Renovation Spend: $991.63

Property Value Post Renovation: $975,000.00

Profit (After Reno Costs): $9,008.37

    1. Hi Anna,

      I resurfaced the cabinets with White Knight Tile & Laminate Primer (the undercoat) then followed with 2 coats of the White Knight Laminate Paint which you can tint to any Taubmans colour.
