10 Easy Kitchen UpdatesWhether you do one or do them all, these easy kitchen updates breathe new life into tired old kitchens, for less money than you might expect. But our number one tip, that doesn't cost a thing, is to clean your countertops and cabinets. Clutter-free kitchens just look and feel better - it might be all the change you need.
Wall paint is an easy way to update the look of your old kitchen. Neutral tones offer an excellent backdrop for décor. Remember, if you use trend colors in small amounts, like an accent wall or accessories, it’s easier to change when your interest turns.
Create an open feel in your kitchen by removing a set of cabinet doors to create an open shelf space. Plenty of options are available, like painting the back wall in a bright color, using in-cabinet accent lights or installing glass doors. Whatever you choose, keep your display items simple and streamlined for an attractive, eye-catching display.
Across the top of your cabinetry, crown molding lends a custom look to stock cabinetry. If you paint your molding, don’t forget that you can be creative for a look that shows your unique style.
A fresh coat of paint on the cabinets changes the entire look and feel of the room. Use paint with primer to reduce the number of coats you’ll need for coverage. Also, consider a washable finish to make cleaning your kitchen easier.
In the same way jewelry can change the look of an outfit, new hardware can transform a kitchen. Switch out knobs and pulls for a dramatic update without spending a lot of money or expending a lot of effort.
Make your kitchen a warm and inviting place to be. Illuminate dark corners and enhance workspace with puck lights installed underneath the top cabinets.
Enhance an often-overlooked space – the kick plate. Run rope lights around the base of your cabinetry for ambience and to create the right mood for parties or family dinners. You can even use them as a nightlight, so children and guests can navigate easily after bedtime.
A new faucet is an easy way to update your kitchen. Before you shop, note the number of holes on the back of your current sink and select your new faucet accordingly.
By adding or changing the backsplash, you can completely change the look and feel of your kitchen. Plus, today’s peel-and-stick options make getting a look you love easy and grout-free.
Changing your kitchen’s countertops may be one of the most obvious ways to change its appearance. But, what you might not know is that today’s options are more affordable and better looking than ever. Whether you choose laminate, solid surface, granite or quartz, you can find a finish that suits your style and your budget.
