8 Ways to Update Your Kitchen

byhuyen-406544-unsplashRenovating your kitchen is a fun, but daunting process. If you’re ready for a change, but not the commitment of a full renovation, then do the next best thing! Tweak a few things to make your kitchen look and feel new. Orlando junk removal company, Junk Angel, has eight ideas to make your kitchen feel new.  

Install a Fun and Unexpected Backsplash

The days of boring, colorless tiles are long gone. Manufacturers have introduced a variety of innovative choices, including peel-and-stick glass tiles, vinyl tiles that mimic the look of ceramic, and fish-scale tiles with an appealing shape. You can even cover walls above counters with fabric or wallpaper layered under tempered glass.

Paint Cabinets

The easiest and least expensive way to update your kitchen is to simply paint the cabinets. Traditional white will brighten a dark room, but don’t be afraid of the millions of beautiful colors available to inject character into your unique space. You can even paint a cabinet door or two with chalkboard paint to write grocery lists, dinner menus, or notes to family members.

Remove or Replace Cabinet Doors

You’ll be amazed at how different your kitchen will feel when you remove a few solid cabinet doors or replace them with glass panels or chicken wire. Fewer solid surfaces create a more open look and feel.

Add Crown Molding

Nothing says “character” quite like crown molding. Even in newer homes and those with contemporary style, it can transform a kitchen into an elegant, distinctive space. Just remember to match the molding to the era or style of your home. Simpler designs fit better in more modern homes.

Swap out Hardware

You may be so used to seeing your cabinet hardware every day that you don’t “see” it anymore. As insignificant as drawer pulls and cabinet knobs may seem, they can make a huge impact in a kitchen. This is a simple, inexpensive, yet significant update.

Hang Wallpaper

Wallpaper is making a comeback! Wallpaper patterns are now available in updated colors and designs, and they’re easier to apply and strip off. If you’re unsure about using wallpaper, try a temporary one.

Introduce artwork

The kitchen is probably where you and your family spend most of your time, so why not make this space as beautiful as the rest of your home? Elevate kids’ artwork by having it professionally framed. Do the same with your favorite illustrations from books.

Throw Away the Junk

Out with the old and in with the new applies to your kitchen too. When you decide to make your kitchen new, contact the Orlando junk removal experts at Junk Angel to haul away your old junk.
