The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s the room you and your family share everyday meals and special moments. Why not treat it as special, as it deserves?
The easiest facelift you can do to your kitchen is to change cabinetry handles and knobs. It is easy and can breathe fresh air into your kitchen.
Are you ready to take your kitchen to the next level?
You can change your kitchen’s wall color. It is not expensive and it is easy to do. People think that kitchen walls have to be white. This isn’t true. In fact if you let your imagination fly, you will be amazed at the world of colors just waiting for your kitchen.
Another option other than painting, is adding wallpaper or vinyl wall art. This can give your kitchen a modern boost, without a lot of effort.
Now if your budget can handle it, you can change your counter top and backsplash as an added bonus to your interiors.
Kitchen backsplashes serve a dual purpose: They protect your walls from spills and splatters, and they add a surprising amount of visual interest to a relatively small area.
There are different materials you can use, depending on your budget. You can’t have a new counter top without a new back splash. You may also need a new sink and tap to go with your new counter top. Consider adding an island if you have the space to bring the entire food prep area into the same light. Countertops can be purchased or made and you can add granite, Corian or other countertop materials to compliment your kitchen space.
If you’d like to add more emphasis on your kitchen, consider changing the cabinetry color. This will really renew your kitchen…
Change cabinetry color by sanding and staining or painting. You can decide on the colors, and finish which all can be a very exciting endeavor. If you are concerned about your budget, consider a coat of paint! It can do wonders to the look of your kitchen and it’s a lot less expensive than refacing.
Being a professional and also a cooking enthusiast, I can tell you for sure lighting above your counter, can really make your work easier, and your kitchen will look bright, bigger and better. The most important lights are the ones under the upper cabinets. It shines lighting on your cooking tasks, and makes the kitchen look fantastic.
It is important to understand that you don't have to do it all at once. Or you can do some of these, and save some for a later time. There is no contractor on the time clock and you can choose which area to work on when. The only caution is that you set a time for completing the project and try to complete one project before moving on to another.
Enjoy your family moments in your upgraded kitchen!
