Kitchens are a major selling point for many people, in fact, there are those who would say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. And with that in mind, there are a lot of ways to revamp a kitchen without things getting too messy and costly. Although new appliances may be on your wish list, here are some ways to give your kitchen a new style through other means.
Try switching to white kitchen floor tiles to brighten up your kitchen’s style. Incorporating white in the flooring helps to create a clean canvas upon which to build. This gives you all of the options, from stainless steel to bright colors, to metallics and anything else you can think of. Just keep in mind that there are different shades of white to choose from, so be specific and thoughtful with your choice. White doesn’t have to feel cold and clinical, you can add textures, great lighting, and pops of color to give it more character and pizazz.
Change the color scheme in your kitchen. You can do this by painting the walls or cabinets, getting new light fixtures, or changing your table cloth. Replacing kitchen towels, potholders and other necessities like this is another way to tie together your new and improved design concept. If you have cloth-covered seats, you may want to consider overlaying them with the different fabric color. There are plenty of ways to change your color scheme, so get creative and have fun.
The Little Things
Don’t ignore the small things that can make a big difference to the overall feel of the kitchen space. A new kitchen table, utensils/cutlery, curtains, and blinds are just some of the small things that can make a difference within a design concept. Adding drawer organizers and cabinet racks may help optimize kitchen usage and make more room for getting you closer to the kitchen of your dreams. Adding fresh flowers or different light bulbs can also be a big picker-upper.
Nothing says new kitchen like a thorough cleaning. Some areas that often go under the cleaning radar include the range hood, cabinets, walls, baseboards, and fans. Getting everything spic and span will make it feel almost like a new kitchen. Not only will it feel good, but it will almost certainly appear brighter, no matter what the lighting situation is. A clean kitchen truly is the absolute best place to start a revamp. Clearing off counters and optimizing the use of cabinet space will make it easier to see all of the possibilities.
Every home can use a little makeover every now and then, and most certainly a kitchen. After all, it’s one of the most used rooms in any home. With that in mind, there are plenty of things you can do to update your kitchen’s style without having to go all out for a full HGTV style remodel.
