Breathe new life into your kitchen with these five transformative projects…
Ready for a kitchen makeover? You don’t need to replace your entire kitchen at once to get a great deal and make a real difference. From small changes like new hardware and painted cabinets to renewed countertops, create a kitchen you love no matter your budget.
1. Give your cabinets a facelift
Are your cabinets looking a little dull and dated, but you’re not quite ready to install all new cabinetry? All hope is not lost! You can give your cabinets a new, fresh look with a simple coat of paint and some stylish hardware. Consider freshening them up with a two-colour look paired with sleek cabinet pulls for a bold and modern style that will make you want to keep those old cabinets around a little longer.
2. Choose a new countertop
If you’re happy with the layout of your kitchen, replacing wood or vinyl with a stone worktop can give your space a new lease of life. Choose a bright statement colour, or go with a classic neutral shade. Stone worktops are incredibly durable, so choose a colour you’ll love to live with. With the vast range of hues available, it’s easy to create a new kitchen that looks great with your existing cabinets and will also look fabulous when you replace them in a few years.
3. Replace outdated appliances
Now is the time to look into updating your stove, refrigerator, or oven. If you haven’t shopped for appliances in a while, you will be amazed by how appliances now have so many features, gadgets, and gizmos that you’ll want to get on board with. It’s possible to update your area with brand-new appliances within the $3,000 to $5,000 range.
4. Install new flooring
Here is another inexpensive way to switch up the look of your kitchen. When choosing your new kitchen flooring, consider your budget as well as your lifestyle. If you have kids, you may want to skip using hard ceramic tile. If you have pets, wood flooring doesn’t sound like a good idea. A popular kitchen flooring choice is laminate. The flooring has both a decorative layer (a print of a photograph of real wood, marble, granite, or ceramic) and a wear layer, which is applied to the decorative print layer to protect the pattern.
5. Improve lighting
While natural light is certainly the best and brightest light source for this space, it isn’t always sunny outside. Or maybe your kitchen doesn’t have an abundance of windows, or they aren’t in the right place. Having the correct lighting in your kitchen will not only make the room more welcoming but improve its functionality as well. Updating pendant lighting, adding recessed pocket lighting, and adding under counter accent lights are all surefire ways to bring a dull kitchen to life.
