The kitchen is the centerpiece of your home. If you plan to sell your home, it is one of the things potential buyers ask to look at before tabling an offer for your home. Whether or not your house is on the market, you need your kitchen always looking spectacular and inviting. Here are some of the easiest ways to revamp your kitchen space, fix the little flaws, and give it a new look without putting too much effort into it.
- Paint the cabinets
A complete overhaul may not always be the best option for you when trying to repair your kitchen cabinets. Instead, consider giving it a new shade to brighten things up a bit while you save more resources and prepare for a future overhaul.
- Change or remove cabinet doors and handles
Replacing existing cupboard doors with glass-paneled ones is one of the most worthwhile upgrades you can do for your kitchen. You may also go for the cheaper and more daring option of ditching the doors altogether. The latter option not only makes your kitchen look less cramped but also helps you add a little interest to the entire space by displaying your favorite bowls and dishes.
Changing the look of your cabinet is considered one of the easiest and quickest ways to give your kitchen a facelift. Handles and pulls, on the other hand, may look like trivial details of your cabinet when their aesthetic addition is actually significant. Look for shiny or colorful options but avoid getting something too cutesy or personal. Since you are changing both the door and handles or pulls at the same, it can be easy to identify a perfect color combination before making a buy.
- Add glass panels
If you fancy the idea of displaying your dishes but do not want to ditch the cabinet doors, consider replacing them with glass. Glass panels on your cabinets are an aesthetic enhancement as well and can save you more than 50 percent of what it would have cost you to replace them with actual doors.
- Hang window treatments
New drapery can perk up your space and massively alter the look and feel of your home. You only need to be careful with material and color choice if you are to retain or improve the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen. Above sinks, consider short draperies with less fabric to prevent water-damage and discoloration.
- Replace the countertops
Countertops are a dominant feature in the kitchen whose aesthetics can make or break your kitchen’s look. You can obtain a laminate surface at a few hundred dollars. Ensure the color you choose aligns with what is on the cabinets to avoid clashing such two dominant colors.
Depending on your budget, you can decide to do something about your lighting and flooring as well. By smoothing the little scratches and chips on the tile and installing new lighting, you will be giving your kitchen a fresh look without necessarily breaking the bank for it.
