Does your refrigerator work fine but look dated? Can’t afford to replace it right now? You’re not alone.
Recently a customer submitted before and after photos of her refrigerator, upgraded with Fasade panels.

There are a slew of boards where people share their ideas to give their refrigerators budget-friendly makeovers and many of them are very creative and fun. Who knew? If you want to give your refrigerator new life, but don’t want to spend a lot of money doing it, there are a few methods to choose from. Check out these refrigerator makeover ideas for less:
Available in brush- or spray-on varieties, specialty appliance paints are designed to cover plastic or metal. Some are also heat resistant, which you need to use for ovens or range hoods. You can choose from matte or glossy finishes, or even chalkboard for a really unique look.
Peel and Stick Paper
Inexpensive and available at most home improvement stores, peel and stick paper comes in a variety of colors and designs. Julie used a stainless steel contact paper and wrote about the process here.
If you want something a little more durable than paper, look into magnetic covers. Fridge Fronts is an online store that offers dozens of designs and styles for any type of refrigerator format, whether you have a top-mount freezer, French style or side-by-side doors. They’re also available for dishwashers.
Of course, Fasade faux tin panels are another great option. Available in traditional, modern and industrial styles and dozens of colors, they’re available in more than 250 configurations. Whether you use them as backsplash, on the ceiling or on your refrigerator, Fasade panels offer the industrious DIYer a fun project that easily updates the look of your kitchen without costing an arm and a leg.
