Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets
When you look at the cost of replacing your kitchen cabinets, the price can seem quite daunting, but you may not have to go as far as replacing them. If all your cabinets are in working order and just looking tired and dated, you can get them professionally painted instead at a fraction of the cost. Many companies offer painting kitchen cabinets as a service, and once they have finished, they will leave your kitchen looking brand new again.

Paint Your Windows & Doors
Another way which will give the exterior of your home a makeover is to paint your windows and doors instead of replacing them. Just as with your kitchen cabinets, if your windows and doors are in good working order but are starting to look faded and tired, instead of replacing them at a massive expense, you can choose a professional company to spray them leaving them looking like new again. It is not a job that you should do as a DIY project as you may ruin the finish of the windows and doors, so it is a job best left to the experts. On average though you can save around 80% of the cost of replacing your windows and doors by painting them instead, which is a massive saving.
