Have you ever noticed that your kitchen is a major gathering place when company comes over? That’s because the kitchen is considered to be the heart of the home. So, if you have been thinking about brightening up the heart of your home, here are a few tips to get you there.
Replacing the hardware on your cabinets (hinges, openers and drawer pulls) can be an excellent way to freshen up your kitchen. This can be done inexpensively if you take the time to shop around for the hardware that fits into your budget. There are a variety of colors and styles to choose from, so you should have no problem finding some that look and fit great. Just make sure to measure the space between the holes or have checked how they are mounted to your cabinets to be sure that they will fit without needing to drill any holes. Tip: Use your iPhone or other smartphone to take a picture of your current hardware before you go.
Use some brightly colored dish or tea towels strategically placed around the kitchen can add a splash of color to the room without much effort at all. You can purchase easy to hang hooks that you can use to hang them on a wall that is bare. These towels can be changed out as often as you would like to change the look and feel of the room.
Kitchen cabinets that have seen better days can really bring your kitchen down. If you cannot afford to replace them, you can quickly refinish or repaint them. It may take a little time to prep them, but once the project is complete, you will be thankful that you put forth the effort to get the work done.
Replacing a faucet that has seen better days can really improve the look of your kitchen. It can be relatively simple to do and with the right faucet, it can make quite a difference in the overall look of the kitchen. Tip: Use satin paint to give your walls a second life. A fresh coat of satin paint will really change the look of a dreary kitchen. You can choose the color that most appeals to you and really make it fit your personality. Buttery yellow, sky blue or pink rose paint colors will make the room seem light, airy and welcoming.
Use these tips to refresh and revitalize your dull kitchen to make your main gathering place a nice place to spend some time.
