BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The kitchen is the place where we cook, entertain, do homework, and even surf the web.
We want it to be functional, but we also want it to be stylish, too. Luckily there are some easy ways to tweak your kitchen to breathe new life into it.
Consider the following simple projects to enhance your kitchen space.
1. Reface the Kitchen Cabinets
Building new cabinets from can be an expensive and labor-intensive endeavor. You can make just as much of a difference by sanding and repainting the surface of your cabinets to breathe new life into them.
2. Change the Cabinet Hardware
Replace all those dated knobs and pulls with brand new ones. There are so many variations on the market these days that you can create a completely unique look to your kitchen with the simple change of your cabinets’ hardware.
3. Install a Backsplash
You don’t have to be an expert to have an amazing backsplash. Consider peel-and-stick variations, or simply paint the space to change up the look.
4. Add Storage to the Backsplash
If you don’t like the thought of leaving your backsplash bare, consider using that valuable space for storage. Add a system that allows you to hang your pots, pans and utensils to maximize your wall space and expand your storage options.
5. Choose a New Kitchen Sink
Out of all the components in the kitchen, your sink is likely used the most. There are so many options available as far as style, size, width, depth, color, and material.
6. Swap the Kitchen Faucet
A faucet is very practical in nature, but it can also work wonders at enhancing the esthetics of your kitchen. Modern faucets have more features that make washing the dishes a lot more efficient while improving the looks of the space at the same time.
7. Change the Countertops
Granite, marble, laminate, concrete, quartz, butcher block . . . the options are vast. A new countertop can make a huge difference.
8. Install New Lighting
Hang pendant lamps over an island, line the cabinets with under-mounted LED light strips, and swap old fixtures with more impressive ones.
9. Add Seating
If you’ve got an island or a ‘peninsula’ in your kitchen, add some bar stools if space permits. It’ll make a great place for quick snacks and great conversations.
10. Create Charging Station
Everyone in the home has their own digital device these days. Instead of leaving a tangled mess of wires in the corner, come up with a creative way to house your devices while hiding their associated wires for a cleaner, clutter-free look.
