Little Changes Have Big Impact in the Kitchen



While a major overhaul can update your kitchen in a big way, it also comes with a large price tag. You may eventually want to invest in a big remodel or home improvement project, but until then, there are some smart investments you can make to improve the look and feel of this vital space.

Add a fresh backsplash: Whether you invest in tile (at the higher end of the price range) or use a peel and stick backsplash (inexpensive), the backsplash can change the entire look of your kitchen without requiring you to gut everything or move things around. Choose materials and colors that suit the theme you want and rejuvenate the space.

Dump the Clutter: You may no longer notice it, but too many objects on the counter, on top of cabinets and on shelves can make your space look dark, dated and disorganized. A full cleaning and removal of all visible clutter does a surprisingly good job of refreshing your space – and unless you hire an organizational specialist, it is free.

Replace cabinet hardware: Hardware that is old or outdated makes your whole space look tired; replace your existing pulls and knobswith high quality versions to immediately update the look of your space. You will love choosing cabinet hardware that matches your favorite colors and themes and the space can be affordably updated in a day

Refresh Wood Trim: You don’t need to replace the cabinets to get a fresh new look. Paint or refinish any aging wood areas to restore their appearance and reflect the theme you have chosen for your space. Focusing on the exposed areas and adding either accent color or simply restoring the luster with a wood treatment can make a huge difference in the kitchen.

Liven up the floors: Replacing tile or even vinyl is costly but new rugs or mats for the work zone and under the table or dining area are not. Incorporate fresh and lively color with new floor mats and you will get the look of new flooring without the high ticket price.

Fast and easy changes of everything from your drawer pulls to your junk drawer can help you give your kitchen a whole new look and ensure you fall in love with your space all over again. Contact us or view our collection to see how easy it is to update your home with fresh hardware and handles.
