Get closer to the kitchen of your dreams, without splurging on a remodel.
While we all might have visions of our dream kitchen dancing in our head or multiple images pinned to a Pinterest board—doing a full-scale renovation might not be in the budget at the moment. But that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing you can do. Here are a few easy ways to update your kitchen—no remodeling necessary.
1.Switch off the Hardware
You won’t believe how quick and easy it is to give your old, outdated hardware a refresh. Warm up your finishes with a brass option in a sleek, modern shape. This will instantly make your kitchen look on-trend, but it won’t cost a fortune to achieve.
2. Paint the Cabinets
Yes, painting your cabinets is quite a bit of work, but it’s incredibly affordable! It’s the cost of a can or two of paint and some elbow grease if you’re doing it yourself. Whether you opt for a dramatic black or a soft dove gray, a couple coats of paint will completely transform the look of the entire space.
3. Add in Open Shelving
If you’ve got a massive blank wall to fill, you might want to consider adding some shelves. They’re a great way to show off your beautiful glassware, your collection of serveware, or gorgeous cookbooks—and they’ll give this room even more storage. Add sculptural or minimal brackets for that extra touch of elegance.
