SPRING CLEANING – WHAT TO DO TO RENOVATE YOUR KITCHEN
Finally, the spring season is here, which means that it is time to bring out the household cleaning products and a home renovation magazine for some fresh ideas. After all, with the new season should there come some major changes to your home? In particular, this season most homeowners are focusing on the kitchen because the space has become the focus on the American home. By giving extra attention to your kitchen, you can create a warm and inviting space that your family and friends love to gather in every day of the year. Here are some of the best renovations that you can implement:
Repaint the Cabinets
There are two ways to improve the appearance of your kitchen cabinets: paint them or remove them. As you can already guess, the most economical option is to repaint your cabinets. This season, white or cabinets with a lighter shade are very much in style. To refinish your cabinets, simply remove the doors from the hinges, choose your paint, and start the process. For an added bonus, you can even purchase new hardware to give your cabinets and even more updated appearance. Once the cabinets are fully dry and the hardware is added, you can attach them back where they belong.
Hanging Pans Should Be Put Away
People either leave their pans out hanging in the kitchen or they put them away in the cabinet. If you fall into the former group, then it is time to make a change. Putting your pans in a cabinet not only gives your kitchen a neater and organized appearance, but it also reduces the hassle of having to remove a pan that is hanging downwards, thereby creating a risk. If you do not have space in a cabinet, then an alternative solution is to stack them and make some space.
A Tile Backsplash
Another quick change that you can make is to the backsplash. The backsplash is the wall above your counter and it can be changed with a few simple steps. If you have a preexisting backsplash, then it is best to remove it first. After you’ve chosen your new backsplash, which is ideally a light colored tile these days, you can use adhesive to attach it to the wall. For the best results, you can find a professional to get the job done for you at a fair price.
Update the Lighting
Finally, you can also update the lighting in your kitchen. While adding hanging lighting can be challenging if you have never done it before, there are numerous guidelines online and most of the hardware also comes with instructions. If you really are at odds with the project, you can ask a friend or family member for help. The project will also be well worth your while, because these days, lighting is becoming more fun, creative, and interesting. With this change and those above, having an updated kitchen will feel great this spring.
