Does your home feel like it isn’t in the 21st Century?
Kitchens can show their age extremely quickly. If you don’t keep up with the times, next thing you know, your kitchen is two decades out of style. If you aren’t ready to completely demolish your kitchen and start from the ground up, there are a lot of quick, cost effective, alternatives that can keep your kitchen feeling up to date.
Install Under Cabinet Lighting
Light really opens up a space. Adding under-cabinet lighting is a fancy and classy upgrade. Having your kitchen lit up with an under-glow effect will keep your kitchen light and bright, day or night, without being blinding! There are many options of under-cabinet lighting out there: plug-in, battery operated, and hard wired. No matter which way you go it is a definite must-have to quickly upgrade your kitchen.
Reface Your Cabinets
We love cabinet refacing! Refacing your cabinets will be the most dramatic change that can be done in a kitchen without entirely gutting it. The process can be found on my previous blog here. It is a great, cost effective option that only takes a few days and makes a huge impact!
Add New Hardware
The easiest way to change up your kitchen without investing much time or money, is by installing new hardware. Hardware alone can completely change the style of your kitchen. Adding different pendent lighting to match can change your kitchen from drab to fab in the blink of an eye.
Add a Wine Rack
A wine rack is both practical and a beautiful display that adds character. A wine rack can be almost anywhere, but it is very popular to install them at a wet bar or the end of your kitchens island.
Install Crown Molding
Cabinet crown molding a great quick way to upgrade! If you have basic carpentry skills, it is also a very DIY project. It can make “cookie cutter” kitchens look expensive and custom.
