One of my favorite rooms in the home is the kitchen. It seems like any gathering or family get-together always results to everyone standing around the kitchen talking for hours. Our kitchens are important, and they’re used for a lot more than just cooking. That’s why revamping your kitchen can make your entire house feel a little more homey.
I have been living in my condo for too many years without doing a little updating to my kitchen space. I’m getting some major inspiration from Midwest Kitchens and to give you tips on how to do a kitchen makeover like the one above! Whether you want a total remodel, or a few quick tips, we’ve got you covered. If you’re ready for a new look, here are 10 Ways to Revamp Your Kitchen.
Stretch your cabinets
It’s pretty common to have a bit of empty space between your ceiling and cabinets. If you’re not storing anything up there, give yourself some more storage by getting ceiling-high cabinets! Installing new cabinets can seem like a hassle at first, but it’s worth it to get things off your counter for a cleaner look.
Appliances are expensive, but a good investment if you love your kitchen. Adding an updated oven or stovetop can make cooking faster, easier and cleaner. Plus, new technology has given us smart fridges and other appliances that further help us organize the kitchen.
Change your cabinet doors
Some people opt to completely remove their cabinet doors, to create a more open look. If you’re not ready to commit to that, try installing glass doors on your cabinets. Say goodbye to opening every single cabinet trying to find what you’re looking for because you can see what’s inside!
Add a big island
The kitchen island is always a hub of activity. If you don’t have one, or yours is small, consider getting a large one! When your counters are too crowded, you can cook, eat and store things on your island. Adding seating to your island is also a great way to accommodate guests.
This might take a bit of imagination and outside help, but moving things around will bring new life into your kitchen. Move your fridge and other appliances around for a grand change, or simply switch the places of your cups and plates. Do what makes sense for your kitchen.
Add Another Pantry
This is another tip that might require outside help, but it’s worth it if you have an older home or a small kitchen. Turning extra space or an empty closet into another pantry will allow you more counter space.
Resurface Your Cabinets
With cabinet refacing, you will choose brand new paint-grade doors that were intended to be painted, which are sealed, varnished and oven-cured in a controlled environment at the Showplace Cabinetry factory. This results in a durable, smooth finish and feels that simply can’t be duplicated.
Locally painted kitchen cabinet doors do not wear well over time. Exposure to water, heat and contact with food & grease cause the paint to peel and chip, especially around the sink and cooking areas.
Change the knobs
Something as simple as replacing the knobs, handles and faucets in your kitchen can make a big difference. This change is stylish and relatively cheap compared to other renovations and is a great way to make your home more updated.
Hang your lights
Suspended lighting is a great way to change the look and lighting of your kitchen. You can add a dramatic chandelier or farmhouse pendants to complement your style. Changing your lights is a great way to revamp your kitchen.
Add some color
Even though plain black and white decor is trendy, a touch of bright color will take something from sterile to stellar. You can keep your kitchen simple and still add colorful hand towels, bowls or light fixtures to make it more fun.
