Quick Remodels You Can Do with Your Stimulus Check

While a full scale kitchen remodel may be outside your budget, you may be able to make some upgrades to your kitchen at a relatively low cost. Everyone is receiving at least $1200 from the U.S. Government in a coronavirus stimulus check. If you have your bills paid because you’re still working, you could use this money to make some minor upgrades to your home. Here are some upgrades you can make for under $2,000.

Upgrade Appliances

Are your appliances old, inefficient, or quirky? Now is a great time to replace your kitchen appliances. Appliances can run anywhere from $300 to $8,000 depending on the type and features. Most people spend an average of $500 to $1000 for a kitchen appliance.

Add Cabinet Space

If you want to increase your cabinet space, you can do so relatively cheaply. Installation of just a few cabinets won’t cost much, and the cabinets themselves run from $150 to $500 per cabinet, depending on the type and quality. You can also use this option to replace certain cabinets that present accessibility issues.


You can replace your countertops with basic tops for about $2000 to $2500. If your countertops are very worn or if the Formica is beginning to come loose on the edges, you need to replace your countertops. If you get carried away with granite or other features, your cost could be much higher.

Upgrade Lighting

Does it always seem too dark in your kitchen? Are you always wishing you had more light? You can easily upgrade your kitchen lighting and add a few new fixtures at a relatively low cost. Most of the time you can upgrade lighting for less than $1500.

Replace Flooring

Does your kitchen floor look faded and dingy? You can replace the flooring in your kitchen giving it a brand new look for under $1500, depending on the type of flooring you choose. Linoleum will be the cheapest option.
