The kitchen is one of the hardest-working and most used rooms in a house. If yours is looking a little tired, here are 5 easy and inexpensive ways to freshen it up and add value to your home.
1. A Fresh Coat of Paint
If the cabinets are in good shape, why not give them a bit of a facelift with a fresh coat of paint? It’s a relatively easy and inexpensive way to update and refresh a kitchen.
2. Pendant Lighting
Contemporary lighting fixtures with geometric shapes and a metallic finish over an island can be an easy and fun way to modernize and add a touch of character to your kitchen.
3. Tile Backsplash
If the countertops are in good shape, changing just the tile backsplash can completely refresh an entire kitchen. If you’re brave, try something patterned or colourful!
4. New Faucet
The sink and faucet are often the central focal point of the kitchen, so why not make a bold statement with a distinctive faucet? These days “semiprofessional faucets” (those with pull-down nozzles and stretchy hoses) in matte black, gold, and copper are fairly trendy.
5. Swap the Hardware
When it comes to quick and easy kitchen updates with big impact, hardware is at the top! It’s inexpensive and a job that can be completed in just a few hours. Yet it can transform the entire look and feel of a kitchen.
