Believe it or not, 2024 is approaching fast, and so are the new year’s trends.

Whether you’re considering a full kitchen renovation—so long, rickety cabinets and outdated backsplash—or simply need to stock up on a few essential kitchen tools, there’s no getting around it: kitchens are expensive. Not every aspect of your kitchen needs to blow your budget, though. We tapped two interior designers, both with extensive kitchen experience, to spill the kitchen items they say aren’t worth the splurge. “There are so many choices when it comes to outfitting a kitchen, with just as many price points to choose from,” according to interior designer Kristina Phillips. “Most would agree that countertops and appliances are worth spending money on, but there are a few items that don't need splurging to be effective.” Read on for their recommendations, both big and small—your budget will thank you.
