Kitchen Updates on a Dime

Posted by Joseph Berry on Thursday, February 9th, 2017 at 5:30pm.

  • Kitchens don't always allow for accessories and decorations like other rooms in your home do, so you'll need to make the most of what you can use.  Gather up your frequently used spices and pantry items with pretty or unique packaging and display them in a woven basket or on a tray along with wooden cutting boards.
  • If you have standard issued white or oak cabinets, or if yours are looking a bit shabby, plan on painting them.  Be sure to properly prep each door before starting to ensure the best finish.  Choose neutral colors to compliment many different materials and finishes.
  •  A new faucet is an easy way to upgrade your sink.  Note the number of holes on the back of your current sink and go shopping.  You'll find a variety of finishes and features available,  from motion sensors, soap dispensers, and built in water filters.

Because it's amazing how even the smallest change can energize your kitchen and spice it up!
  • Chalkboard Wall.
  • Update lighting by adding pendant lights.
  • Switch out hardware.
  • Plants.
  • Open shelving.
  • Paint the backs of shelves/cabinets.
  • Add a rug.
  • Install new blinds, shades, or curtains.
  • Get creative with your backsplash.
  • Add interest to a wall with art or large photos.

With spring on its way, now is a prime time to tackle your kitchen updates.
Jot down your ideas of what you’d like to modify and what your budget will be.
If you find that you can’t make the changes you want with the kitchen you have,
I’d love to help discuss your options with you and I will take the worry out of the home buying process.
