Whether you have recently purchased a home with a kitchen that needs some sprucing up or your current kitchen needs some attention, the thought of renovating an entire room can be overwhelming. Here are three simple ways you can give your kitchen a facelift that won’t cause unnecessary stress.
Get New Appliances
Purchasing new appliances may not be the most cost-effective way to liven up your kitchen, but if you have the money to spare, consider replacing anything that is older and not performing as well as it should. If your current appliances don’t match, begin purchasing ones that do so your kitchen has a cohesive look. If you are not handy and would prefer not to install anything yourself, consider hiring a refrigerator installation service to handle the heavy lifting. Newer, matching appliances are also great for resale value.
Paint Your Cabinets
If you feel like your kitchen is dark or depressing, paint your cabinets white and you’ll notice a drastic difference immediately. If you are not a fan of white, run to the paint store and choose a fun “pop color” that will add some interest to the room and will also add the bright, happy atmosphere that you have been missing.
Pick a color scheme (or just one bright color) and get to work shopping for fun accessories to decorate with. If decor isn’t your strong suit, consider purchasing some indoor plants and brightly colored pots to place around the room. There is no wrong way to decorate, but take your time to select items that you truly like — there is no need to rush.
Breathing life into your kitchen can be a fun experience. Use some of these tips and you’ll have a space that you will enjoy and you will be happy to show off to visitors.
