Quick kitchen makeover ideas:
Paint. Regular readers know that I am a firm believer in paint. For $ 20.00 or less, you can change the look of your kitchen with a new coat of paint. Be bold and use an invigorating shade of yellow, gold or citrus.
Hardware. If your kitchen cabinets don’t have hardware, add it! If your existing kitchen cabinet hardware has been there awhile, remove it and install new. This quick kitchen makeover idea will cost no more than $ 50.00, but will completely change the look of your cabinets.
Flooring. Replacing the kitchen floor can be costly and time consuming. Instead, simply add a large throw rug to give your kitchen a fresh new look.
Add glass doors. Liven up your kitchen cabinets by installing glass doors. Glass doors are a great way to display prized china, and they are an incentive to keep cabinets organized.
Replace small appliances. If your toaster is rusty and your blender is cracked, replace them! Bright colored appliances are a hot trend right now, so consider being bold with your appliance choice.
Add storage. Wheeled carts won’t take up a lot of room, but they help keep clutter under control. Larger units can even act as an impromptu kitchen island.
Install pull out shelves. If you can make more room inside your cabinets, you’ll free up space on your countertops. Install pull out shelves to maximize cabinet space and make your kitchen appear more spacious. Learn how to install pull out shelves HERE.
New accessories. Purchase new accessories to showcase your newly decorated kitchen. New kitchen towels, utensil holders, salt and pepper shakers, and so on can be added to give your kitchen a bright new look.
Update your kitchen backsplash. Bring new life to your kitchen with a new kitchen backsplash. There are many affordable methods you can do yourself to dress up your existing backsplash. Use these Easy Kitchen Backsplash Ideas.
Replace bar stools. If your kitchen has a breakfast bar, replace or recover your bar stools. Select a fabric that blends attractively with other accessories.
Add a view. If your kitchen doesn’t have a window, place a mirror above the sink to give the illusion of one. You can even hang curtains on either side of the mirror for a decorative touch.
Other quick kitchen makeover ideas include adding new artwork, live plants, and other attractive accents to the room.
