Time for a Change – 4 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Kitchen

The time has come to remodel your kitchen. All of those old appliances that you’ve had around since you bought the place are finally starting to wear out. You call the repairman and to your surprise, that oven is going to cost more to fix than it is to just buy a new one! And of course, when it rains, it pours. Now the refrigerator isn’t working either.

Some might decide to just replace the broken appliances, but you might be ready for a change. If you are getting new appliances such as a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, or microwave, you might as well give the kitchen some new upgrades.

1. Fresh Coat of Paint

People often overlook what a fresh coat of paint could really do for a space. It can change the whole atmosphere and make it look like you did a complete remodel on your kitchen.  And that’s just when you put it on the walls!  You can  re-stain your cabinets or even add a new tile backsplash! And, there are many brands that have peel and stick backgrounds too, if you’re not one for painting.

2. Changing the hardware on your cabinets

This is something most people overlook, but it’s one of the easiest things to do. You can usually buy them cheaper in bulk, so you’ll have plenty for your bathroom and future projects. Going from basic knobs to a more intricate design can really help make the space luxurious. They are often really easy to upgrade too. All you need is a screwdriver and a little free time.

3. New lighting

Changing the lighting in your kitchen can be expensive and might require some skill to install, but it’s worth it. If you don’t already have accent lights, it’s worth the investment to make your space come together. They can really set the mood and be a focal point of your kitchen remodel.

4. Reorganize the cabinets

This might be something you dread. No one likes cleaning. But having organized cabinets and drawers can really help put you at ease. Things as mundane as stacking the Tupperware can make you feel like you are in a new space.  And, it’s always a relief when you can find what you’re looking for.
