Posted by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) on 02/20

For most of us, our kitchens are the most popular spots in our homes. In fact, the kitchen is often called heart of the home. Of course, with all of this heavy traffic, the wear and tear will eventually start to show.

Renovating your kitchen can seem like a daunting task, not to mention expensive!

Ready for the good news?

There are easy ways to start updating your kitchen (and adding some style!) without breaking the bank.

Refinish your cabinets

Of all of the equipment in your kitchen, your cabinets receive the most amount of use. Cabinets that have gone out of style, or are worn out, can dramatically affect the feel of your entire atmosphere. Although many people think that they will have to replace their cabinets, repainting is much quicker, and significantly more affordable.

Some of the benefits of repainting your kitchen cabinets include:

  • Fast - Replacing your cabinets is a much longer process than painting them

  • Customize - The options for picking your colors and finishes are endless

  • Cost-Effective - Repainting your cabinets costs a fraction of what it costs to reface or replace

  • Convenience - Painting your cabinets will not disrupt the flow of your home

If your kitchen cabinets need a refresher, explore the affordable option of refinishing!

Update your island

A popular and stylish current trend is to paint your island with an accent color. This breaks up the monotony of a single colored cabinet scheme, and creates a harmonic flow to your kitchen.

White cabinets have made a strong comeback in recent years, and a color like Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, would make a wonderful focal color for your island.

Two tone kitchen cabinets

Since you can customize your kitchen cabinet colors while they are being repainted, consider two tone cabinets. This adds visual interest and, like the color accented kitchen island, can create a stunning focal point for the space.

An interior design tip is that two tone kitchen cabinets can be used to define your space. For instance, a darker color on the top half of your cabinets gives your kitchen a cozy feel.

Darker cabinets on the bottom are also a popular choice. This grounds the space and provides a focal point as people enter the room.

Paint an accent wall

Accent walls are a fun way to add an exciting pop of color without overwhelming the room with too much color. Plus, you can choose an accent color that will unify the other rooms in your home.

Want to express your creative side? An accent wall can be a great way to express your own personal style. Try chalkboard paint for a dramatic, and useful look!

Modernize Your Backsplash

Backsplashes are useful, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Historic kitchens may already have brick backsplashes, and old brick paints well. Why not choose a fresh color that will brighten the space?

There are many styles to choose from for backsplashes. Some are more practical, and some are geared towards adding visual interest. Make sure that you choose a material that will hold up to heavy use over time, but also fits with the ambiance of your updated kitchen.

Update your kitchen, add value to your home

Keep in mind, not only are these affordable updates that you can make, they also add resale value. Keeping your kitchen up to date and stylish is not only an asset to yourself, it is also an investment for the future.
