It is hard to commit to kitchen remodeling if you are afraid that after a few years you may not love the changes anymore. Significant kitchen renovations – like cabinets and countertops, flooring and fixtures – require you to live with them for a long time.
With even minor kitchen renovations costing taking a bite out of your wallet, you may be hesitant to spend 10’s of 1000’s on a kitchen redesign. The good news is you don’t need a complete renovation in order to update your kitchen.
Here are some easy, cost-effective projects that can give the kitchen a whole new look:
Backsplashes can be both practical and beautiful, and they can really change the look and style of your kitchen.
Replacing cabinetry can be cost-prohibitive. Plus it’s an expensive tough job to tackle. Fortunately, there are easier ways to update the look of your cabinets. Switching out dated hardware with something new and eye-catching is a great start. Wooden cabinets can be repainted or stained. Outdated trim can be removed. Or, if you love the open-faced look that’s in vogue in many upscale kitchens, simply remove cabinet doors altogether and have your cabinets refaced.
When it comes to window treatments, most people have two objectives: to create a great look and protect their privacy. The kitchen, however, is one room where privacy is usually less of a concern. That means you can lighten up on window treatments, open your design options and create a light-filled look.
