Most real estate professional agree that kitchen remodels are, on average, the most expensive home improvement projects. In between the expensive appliances, the cabinets, and the lighting installations, a custom kitchen can easily surpass the cost of all the bedrooms in your house, plus the living room or patio.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should give up the dream of enjoying a newer, more comfortable kitchen for your Sunday roasts. Whether you want to give your kitchen an uplift for your own benefit, or because you are planning on selling soon, you can make your kitchen look newly-remodeled with a fraction of the budget with a professional tile cleaning and re-grouting.
The Art of Spending Where It Matters
Take a look around your kitchen and check out what stands out in the room. Among the piles of pots and pans, it’s likely that the first thing that you will notice is the stained kitchen sink or the slightly uncomfortable spice cabinet. Maybe it’s the breakfast chairs that don’t feel comfortable—but no matter where your eyes drifted to first, chances are that all you need is to move your gaze to a different corner for it to disappear completely.
On the other hand, no matter which part of the kitchen you are focusing on, your tiles will be there. They may be in the background, and they don’t claim the same attention that a cupcake making station does—but they have the power of completely restoring your kitchen.
Beautiful Tiles May Mean Different Things
At first glance, tile improvements don’t go along with the idea of kitchen remodeling on a budget. After all, installing new tiles is expensive and invasive. Fortunately, it’s likely that your kitchen doesn’t need completely new tiles—a professional tile cleaning may be enough to make them look as good as new.
Constant exposure to cooking oil may have left your tiles greasy, sticky, and even slightly smelly. Other kitchen accidents may have stained them or left them looking dull. Even more dramatically, dirty grout may be making the entire room look imperceptibly dingy.
This is where a professional grout and tile cleaning service can make all the difference. If you haven’t done this is years, it is likely that you haven’t even noticed how the color of your tiles has changed—despite diligently cleaning your kitchen every week.
This is particularly true when it comes to grout: as a porous material, grout stains are not something that can be reversed by simply applying disinfectant or bleach. In addition, grout contributes to the overall visual effect provided by your tiling, so combining a tile cleaning session with some re-grouting in a different, contrasting color can make your kitchen look radically different.
