Your kitchen. It’s safe to say that it’s probably just about everyone’s favorite place in the house. From whipping up tasty meals to spending time with family and friends, your kitchen holds a lot of great memories.
But as much as you love this space, it might be time for an upgrade. Continue reading to learn of a few hip home ideas for your kitchen.
Change the Layout
When it comes to updating your space, changing the layout of your kitchen can do wonders. From adding a breakfast bar to knocking out walls, there are so many things you can do to give your kitchen a makeover. The choice is ultimately up to you. Take the time and think about what you would like to do.
Add Open Shelving
Open shelving is an awesome way to display your cookbooks, glassware or even all the dishes you don’t really need but can’t part with. Dress up shelves with brass brackets or mini sculptures for an extra touch of elegance.
Update Your Hardware
It’s hard to believe how easy it is to update your kitchen with new hardware. You can warm up finishes with brass touches or set the mood with light dimmers. Both inexpensive touches give your kitchen a modern look without breaking the bank.
Upgrade Your Appliances
Just like the layout, you should also consider upgrading your appliances. Even if you can only replace one at a time, investing you high-quality appliances adds an air of sophistication to your space.
Install New Countertops
Sadly, not all countertops are created equal. One way to refresh your kitchen is installing new ones. Even if your kitchen is small, adding onyx countertops with Slablite illumination packs a punch.
Rethink Your Storage
If your main reason for wanting to renovate your kitchen is a lack of storage, why not rethink your current cabinet situation. You can double your cabinet space by buying dividers, a lazy Susan and graduated shelving units.
Paint a Wall
It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do. Whether you want to kick things up a notch with a splash of color or warm things up with a darker hue, just make sure that it complements the rest of your space.
Breathing new life into your kitchen doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Start small and work your way around your kitchen. Sometimes the tiniest of changes make the most difference.
