There is no getting around it, your kitchen is the heart of your home. You and your family spend a lot of time in your kitchen, and often miss the little things that need a little updating. We have five inexpensive ways for you to update your kitchen. These are affordable updates, that you can tackle within a short period of time.
1. New Hardware
Change out the hardware on your kitchen cabinets. Step back, analyze your kitchen cabinets and visualize new hardware on the handles and hinges. There are many beautiful styles of hardware to choose in today’s marketplace. Bronzed Pewter is very popular and can add a lot of “pop” to your tired looking kitchen cabinets.
2. Fresh Paint
Secondly, a fresh coat of paint on tired walls goes a long ways. Invest in a color that you find warm, inviting, and complimentary to your kitchen décor. If you have glass-faced cabinets, consider painting the inside of your cabinets an exciting color!
3. Add Shine To Your Cabinets
Are your cabinets lacking a little shine? Invest in sand paper, polyurethane, and a little elbow power. Your cabinets can have that “glow” that they have been lacking.
4. Different Curtains
Are your window treatments a little outdated? Change up the look of your windows with a curtain rod that you would like to show off. Invest in a warm,colorful, textured valance to accent your kitchen windows. Drape this valance over the curtain rod and kick back and enjoy the warmth!
5. Update Your Flooring
And finally, if you have a rug covering up that tear in your linoleum, a flooring update is probably in order. An affordable flooring update that would bring your tired kitchen into the 21st Century; is laminate flooring. You can choose from coastal, french bleed, rustic, and even tile laminate flooring to achieve the perfect look!
