During the spring months, many homeowners begin to look for ways to refresh their space. Spring is the perfect time to give the rooms of your home a new look, including the kitchen. By simply adding new paint colors, updating old items and reorganizing the space, you can have a kitchen that has a completely new look! Read on to see five ways you can spruce up your kitchen this spring
1. Declutter & Downsize
One of the best ways to get started is to declutter and downsize the kitchen. Start with a little spring cleaning so you can move on to even more projects in the space. To begin, open up all your cabinets and drawers and take a look at the contents. What can you get rid of? If you are like most homeowners, you have appliances that you are not using. These can easily be donated so that you have more space in your cabinets for items you use every day.
Clear out one cabinet and drawer at a time. Get rid of unused appliances and other items. Reorganize the cabinets so it is easier to access your items. You will be so glad to have organized the space once you start cooking!
2. Create a Bar Cart
A fun project you can complete this spring for your kitchen is creating a bar cart. Take materials you already have or purchase inexpensive items to create a bar cart that will add style to your kitchen as well as a useful piece of furniture. One way to do this is with pallets. Use the boards of ballets to construct a bar cart. Add wheels to the bottom and paint the piece a bright color to add a funky accent furniture piece to your kitchen that can be used around the house and even outside!
3. Install Durable Countertops
If your countertops are old or outdated, you can install a durable option to increase the value of your home as well as make life easier. Quartz and granite are nice options to consider as both materials are durable and visually appealing. Depending on how large your kitchen is, quartz countertops may cost only a few hundred dollars to have new countertops installed. The installation will give your kitchen a completely new look and feel!
4. Bright Neutral Colors
For a cheaper alternative for change, consider painting your kitchen a nice bright neutral color. From grays to blues and crisp whites, there are many ways to add a neutral tone to the space. Choose colors that blend well with your cabinets and countertops to have a cohesive look. Bright neutrals go well with every color palette, allowing you to have a beautifully designed space.
5. Update Your Flooring
The kitchen floor is another area you can consider remodeling. Distressed hardwood flooring is on trend right now and a great addition to any kitchen. Consider if this flooring type will meet your budget needs and have it installed to create a completely new rustic look for your home.
These are just a few ideas you can use to transform your kitchen this spring. Review your kitchen to see if any of these tips will benefit the look and value of your home!
