4 Simple Ways to Upgrade Your Kitchen

Kitchen renovation in your future? Everyone knows that the easiest way to add value to your home is through remodeling the kitchen. Kitchen renovations can be pricey, so how does the budget-conscious homeowner update and refresh that dated, dark, or dingy kitchen? Here are a few tips to get you well on your way to a kitchen remodel that you’ll want to show off:

  • Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
  • For the best kitchen renovation experience, it is not advisable to take a proverbial hatchet to your entire kitchen in a fit of frustration one weekend and be left living with a room that resembles war-zone more than the dream kitchen you wanted in the first place.

  • Consider your surroundings.
  • Before planning, deciding, or buying your materials, make sure that the new look you are giving your kitchen is in keeping with the rest of your home. You may always have loved Art Deco décor and can’t wait to mod up your cabinets, but if you live in a traditional colonial house, your new kitchen will seem awkwardly displaced in your home and not add the value you are looking for.

  • Refinish the cabinets.
  • The easiest and most cost-efficient way to bring those groovy avocado cabinets into the 21st century is a few coats of simple paint. For the best results, plan and research carefully the best way to properly refinish cabinets for the most professional look. No one wants their beautiful new cabinets to start chipping, peeling, or bubbling when research and a little prep work could have avoided that altogether.

  • Revamp the details.
  • What will make your renovation go from getting an “Oh, this looks nice” to blowing your friends’ minds is the details. Get creative and express yourself. It is your house, after all. New cabinet door and drawer pulls can easily make those cabinets look custom-made, and painting a contrasting trim outlining the cabinets can make them pop and can liven the room up as well.

    Maybe buy some scalloped trim and trim out the bottom of the cabinets for a cozy cottage feel. If you have some fun or pretty dishware you would like to display, consider leaving the doors off a few of the cabinets and lining the back shelf walls with complementary paper or fabric to show it off. The possibilities are endless and will transform your kitchen into the envy of your friends and the centerpiece of your home.
