Changing the Look of Your Kitchen for Under 300 Dollars.
Want a kitchen makeover without the hassle and price tag that comes with a full renovation? Consider changing small elements in your design, like your drawer and cabinet hardware and outlet covers; small changes can make a BIG impact- I know, because I just did it!
If ya’ll are sensing a trend in some of my blog posts, you’re right. Dylan and I recently bought a new home, and while we love almost everything about it, it doesn’t completely match our style. I wanted to make some significant changes without having to spend a significant amount of money, and since Chip and Joanna just won’t call me back I had to start thinking about some other options.
Thankfully I stumbled across some great furniture and decor businesses like Apt2B and Cosmas Hardware. If you didn’t see my post on Apt2B, check it out and let me know what you think about my new kitchen table! Companies like these make it easy to slowly build up a collection of quality furniture and decor- who knew there were options in between IKEA and Restoration Hardware?
I snagged these drawer and cabinet pulls from Cosmas, and they really transformed my kitchen. I love their sleek design and the way they match both the white cabinets and my blue island. They’re reasonably-priced (only $1.66 each!) but still high quality; I was super impressed with how heavy and sturdy they are. They also offer a TON of different sizes. We needed close to 40 pulls at 6 different measurements, and Cosmas had all of them. They also offer a huge variety of pull styles in different finishes, so you could mix and match the pulls in different areas of your kitchen (or your house- these work great in bathrooms and on closets too!) but keep the same finish to maintain a cohesive look.
In addition to cabinet hardware, Cosmas sells hinges, screws, decorative wall plates, door hardware and more. These are all things that you might not pay a lot of attention to when buying a house, but when they’re done right they can really make the look of a room. Changing out the hardware is a great way to update your decor as well; say goodbye to the shiny 80s gold and hello to matte black- Chip and Joanna got nothin on Cosmas!
And if the products and pricing isn’t enough to get you to check out Cosmas, their customer service is outstanding as well. They offer a 30 day, no questions asked return policy so if you get the hardware and decide it doesn’t work with your design, you can send it back for a full refund. Their team is incredibly easy to work with- they’re super friendly and were always willing to answer my questions and offer help when needed.
Finally, while you can certainly buy the products from their website, Cosmas also sells their hardware on Amazon...hello 2 day shipping! So many home furnishing companies take 4-6 weeks to send out their products, but not Cosmas. You can decide on a product you like and have it in your house in 2 days, for no extra cost.
Their mission is simple: to provide customers with high quality home hardware at affordable prices. I think it’s safe to say they do this, and more. They’re able to keep their prices low because they only sell online, but you don’t have to worry about getting stuck with a product you don’t like because they have such a great return policy.
So the next time you look around your house and decide you’re sick of the decor, or it’s outdated and you’re ready for a fresh look, consider switching out your hardware, hanging some new bathroom hooks, or changing your outlet covers. The possibilities are endless...and your budget doesn’t have to be!
