Is your kitchen is in need of a facelift in 2016? Whether the appliances need to be updated, the cabinets replaced, or the countertops changed, a kitchen remodel can be an expensive undertaking. Not to mention kitchen remodeling is also a time consuming process. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to give your kitchen an updated look with a small investment in time and money. In just one weekend, you can do all of the things we’ve listed below.
1. The power of paint. Many people don’t realize how much paint colors can do for a room. The truth is that updating the color on your kitchen walls will go a long way in making the area look good again. Check out our Pinterest board for some color scheme ideas before you break out the roller. Note that in 2016, neutrals are trending.
2. Change out the knobs on your drawers and cabinets. While you may not have the money (or the time) to update the drawers and cabinets in your kitchen, you can still give them a fresh look. Visit your local hardware store or one of our partners such as Hafele, EB Bradley, Holdahl, HGH or Hardware Hut for fun, fresh knobs. They’ll give your kitchen a new look plus they’ll keep money in your pocket.
3. Update your faucets. This is one updateable item that a lot of homeowners overlook. Best of all, a new faucet is fairly easy to install. If you’re not comfortable doing it yourself, you can always hire a professional. Visit your local hardware store to find an updated faucet look you love and change the feel of your sink.
4. Bring in technology. Sure you have a blender and a coffee maker, but what about a flat screen TV and docking or charging stations such as Docking Drawer powering and charging outlets? A tech friendly, clutter-free kitchen is a happy kitchen, and it’s one design trend that will never go out of style!
