Whether you’re thinking of a full remodel, or you just want to make some simple changes to bring your kitchen up to date, there are many ways you can update your kitchen so that it is not only stylish now, but for years to come.
1. Replace the Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets crafted with fine wood such as oak, cherry, or maple can bring natural beauty and warmth indoors. With a variety of finishes and styles to choose from, you are certain to find the perfect cabinets to complement the existing style and features of your home. In addition to adding attractiveness, new cabinets can also add more functionality to your kitchen. If your current storage options are limited or inconvenient, replacing the cabinets can help transform your kitchen into the ideal place to cook, store food, and even entertain.
2. Try a New Paint Color
Changing the paint color is a simple and inexpensive way to bring new life to your kitchen. Beige, gray, and other neutral colors can help your kitchen cabinets or countertops “pop”, especially if they are made with natural materials. Soft, neutral colors are a popular choice for kitchens as are bright, vivid colors such as greens, blues, and reds.
3. Add a Kitchen Island
Kitchen islands are a popular way to increase the functionality of your kitchen without sacrificing style. Not only do they add more usable space for cooking and food prep, they can incorporate custom cabinetry for extra storage space. If you have a larger kitchen, you may even want to consider installing a range top or a sink in your island, especially if you frequently cook and entertain.
4. Change the Hardware on Existing Cabinets
If you already have high-quality kitchen cabinets, but you still want to give your kitchen a face-lift, replacing the hardware is a very simple way to achieve a new look. You’ll be surprised when you see what a big difference a very small change can make!
5. Replace the Sink and/or Faucet
A new sink or faucet can add an element of elegance to your kitchen. Even though it is something you use everyday, and sometimes for some not so elegant jobs, your sink doesn’t have to be plain and boring. Make your sink a conversation piece by choosing one that stands out instead of blends in.
