If your kitchen isn’t ready for a full remodel, but it’s lost a bit of its luster, it might just need a small update. Try one or all three of the projects below and you’ll find your kitchen looks and feels fully refreshed!
#1: Add a Backsplash
Backsplashes are a kitchen upgrade that can make a world of a difference in the overall appearance of your kitchen, transforming it from a dreary or outdated look to a new, lively one.
From subway tile to glass mosaic to decorative tiles, you’ll find plenty of beautiful options to choose from. Whether you go with a subtle, classy look or prefer a bolder one, you’ll love the transformation a new backsplash brings to your kitchen.
#2: Update Cabinet Hardware
Are your cabinets still in good shape but looking a little outdated? The easiest way to bring new life to your cabinets is by replacing broken or old hardware with modern cabinet pulls and cabinet knobs.
Contemporary hardware is a simple upgrade that will significantly enhance the look and feel of your entire kitchen. In a smaller kitchen, you may want to go with all the same hardware, but in larger spaces you can select a couple of different designs, as long as they complement one another and provide an overall cohesive look.
With a wide variety of cabinet pulls and knobs available, you can easily find pieces that reflect your personal style while also being within your budget.
#3: Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
Another top recommended project that’s a great way to refresh your kitchen is adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls. Just a simple new coat of paint will go a long way to make your kitchen (and any room for that matter) look well maintained and clean – and won’t cost you a whole lot, either!
If you want to go one step further, consider repainting your kitchen cabinets while you’re at it, especially if yours have a dated finish or you want to give them a completely new look.
For both walls and cabinets, you’ll find an endless amount of options. The key is to choose colors that will complement the rest of your kitchen design and not contrast with the materials and finishes of your existing kitchen décor. When in doubt, neutral is always a fabulous choice!
