We all have an idea of what our dream home would look like in our heads. And more often than not, that dream home is something completely unattainable. Still, for many of us, we try to mimic that grand idea of luxury and class in our homes even if we are on a budget.
In certain areas of our homes, having that picture perfect feel is nearly impossible. We’ve never seen a den that looks like it should be featured in Architectural Digest, and rightfully so! After all, your house is meant to be lived in!
However, there is one specific area of your home that can be both functional and beautiful – your kitchen – and we can help you take it there. Your kitchen should feel warm and inviting to anyone who gathers in the space. Things like countertops, backsplash, and cabinets have an incredible effect on the look and feel of your home. And yet, all those things seem to leave a major hole in your wallet when done well. But what if we told you that you could get your desired look for less? Here are just a few tips and tricks to keep your kitchen looking luxurious on any budget.
3 TIPS FOR A LUXURIOUS KITCHEN
Backsplash has become incredibly trendy recently. With people using everything from pennies to chalkboard paint, it has become a key accent feature in most kitchens. Our favorite money-saving technique when it comes to backsplash is a peel-and-stick option. It’s easy on your wallet, simple to install and there’s almost no mess!

Your kitchen countertops are one of the first things that will catch the eye of any house guest. With current trends like marble and reclaimed wood making appearances in every lookbook and renovation television show, it’s becoming even more expensive to get your HGTV-worthy kitchen. But don’t worry – there are some amazing alternatives that will fit any budget and still give you a high-quality feel. For instance, if you like the look of luxurious reclaimed wood, look into butcher block. If you love the fresh minimalistic look of marble, look into alternative stone options like solid Formica Striato. With even more budget-friendly options like marble contact paper, achieving the look you want for less is achievable.
Your kitchen cabinets can take your entire home from shabby and outdated to sleek and modern in a matter of minutes. Wood color, trim and paint all play into the appeal of your gorgeous dream kitchen. Unfortunately, replacing cabinets can be extremely costly and time-consuming. But you know what isn’t costly or time-consuming? Cabinet refacing! It’s a budget-friendly, eco-friendly alternative to getting all new cabinets and the best part? It only takes one day of installation. At CRS, we understand that kitchen makeovers can be a tedious process, which is why we come to you.
