Are you looking around your kitchen and just aren’t satisfied with what you’re seeing? All it takes to give your kitchen a quick refresh is some small changes. These changes can make a huge difference when it comes to the overall style of your kitchen. It’s hard to come up with ideas, but that’s why we’re here! In this blog, we’ll show you five small ways you can upgrade your kitchen with less effort and less money. Let’s get started!
- Paint the Cabinets
An easy, simple, and inexpensive way to make a big change to your kitchen is to paint the cabinets. When was the last time they were painted? We’re guessing it’s been a while. You’ll be shocked at what a can of paint can do to your cabinet doors. If you have a wood stain on your cabinets now, painting them white will instantly make your kitchen feel brighter, clean, fresh, and modern.
- Switch Up the Hardware
After you paint the cabinets, all you need to do is buy some unique knobs from craft stores and you’ve upgraded your kitchen already! Use this same moto throughout your kitchen. Upgrade all of your hardware like sink faucets. Simple changes like these can make big improvements in the grand scheme of your kitchen. Another great thing about this is that it’s easy to switch it out whenever you get tired of how your kitchen looks now.
- Install Open Shelving
If you’re going for that rustic look we all love so much, get yourself a few pieces of barnboard and brackets and hang them on your wall for beautiful, yet simple shelving. Not only are these shelves beautiful, but they are also functional. Use them to store things like decanted goods in glass jars, books, and you can’t forget some plants. This will add so much style and functionality to your space that you’ll fall in love with your kitchen all over again.
- Change Your Lighting Fixture
Want to make a huge change without having to do a lot of work? Upgrade your lighting! Find a light that you absolutely love, or one that makes a statement, and install it where your old lighting used to be. You will never believe the change this will make in your kitchen until you do it!
- Paint the Walls
As you can tell, we’re fans of paint. Another great way to upgrade your kitchen is to paint the walls. Find a colour that you love and that won’t make the space feel too small. Go to the hardware store and look at all of the different paint swatches and find one that stands out to you. You can even get little paint samples and try them out on your wall to see what they look like. A fresh coat of paint will work wonders in transforming your kitchen.
