Whether it’s color that's needed, adding some depth to your kitchen, or bringing life to your kitchen cabinets, there are all kinds of ways that you could have a new looking kitchen in just a few days. Just in time for the holidays.
Add Color or Shades of Gray
One of the easiest, least expensive ways to alter the look of a room dramatically is to introduce a new paint color. Color conveys mood. Blues and greens are soothing colors and are a popular choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Red brings excitement and energy, a good fit for the dining room. Yellow gives off a cheerful vibe.
But the newest trends say that hues of gray have become increasingly popular in recent years. A more sophisticated look, grays are popular in both the kitchen and the bathroom. They were used in more than half the kitchen and bathroom projects last year.
A New Backsplash
Having a new backsplash installed in the kitchen or bathroom adds depth and texture. While tile and stone have been a traditional favorite, glass backsplashes are gaining in popularity. There are a multitude of options available.
If you’re tired of the dingy, kitchen cabinets, consider cabinet refacing them. One of the most effective ways to lighten up or create a simplified, clean look in the kitchen is to reface or refinish cabinets. White or off-white creates a timeless look. It’s the best choice, too, if you’re planning on selling your house within the next couple years because it’s a neutral color that will appeal to many buyers. Refacing and refinishing cabinets only takes a few days, and your kitchen will look and feel brand new.
A New Faucet
Another easy project suitable for the kitchen is a new faucet. Transitional design is becoming increasingly popular in faucets. This means the faucet is sleek and stylish, but also highly functional.
One type that is gaining in popularity is the kind with a pull-down head that can run full-stream or spray. After the faucet is pulled down, it reattaches easily. A single lever makes it a cinch to maneuver between hot and cold.
