Whether you’ve just moved in, have been meaning to update for years or are experiencing life changes, a kitchen uplift doesn’t have to come with a huge price tag. Smallscale projects could be the change your kitchen needs:
Brighten it up. Adding LED lights below your cabinets will brighten your backsplash and counter and provide a warm glow. Place whimsical containers below to act as focal points.
Swap the old with new. The backsplash is the first thing you see, so replacing it can be enough to give the space a whole new look. Try a unique shape or colour to change things up, like turquoise or patterned tiles, hexagon-shaped tiles or even a full slab of stainless steel.
Rework what you have. People often think new cabinets are necessary, but a lot can be done with what you’ve got. Repainting the cabinets and switching out the knobs to chic new handles will do wonders for a makeover.
Don’t hide away. Try adding some open shelving in an unused spot, such as above the sink or window, Display beautiful dishes and add decorative pieces to give the space a modern, airy feel.
Taking on a renovation can often feel overwhelming. But if you talk to your contractor about budgeting and spreading out payments through services such as the Home Depot Project Loan, it can be easier than you think.
