Whether your house is move-in ready or in need of remodeling, your kitchen is a great way to add style and value to your home. Kitchen remodeling can increase the selling price of your home if you decide to put it on the market in the future. While these changes can range from cosmetic to major overhauls, here are five kitchen remodeling ideas that will transform your home:
- Stain or paint cabinets
Cabinets that haven’t changed in decades may look outdated. To spruce them up, stain or paint them a different color. Various paint colors can change the look of your entire kitchen. Choose a dark cherry color to contrast against light colored floors or countertops. Or select a white paint color to make the room look brighter. You can also paint them in vibrant colors like kelly green or purple so you’ll never find your kitchen boring.
- Change up cabinet hardware
A simple, but impactful, way to add some personality to your kitchen is replacing or installing new hardware for your cabinets. Replace old knobs or pulls with silver, bronze or other colored hardware making your cabinets eye-catching. For example, silver pulls stand out beautifully against darker cabinet colors.
- Install motorized window shades
Consider installing motorized shades to let more light in. Window shade professionals can install the shades for you, taking the pain out of self installation. Not only are the fabrics approved by the Skin Cancer Foundation for blocking UV rays, you can also easily adjust the light coming in and make your home more appealing overall.
- Add a stylish backsplash
A backsplash is a great way to instill flair into your kitchen even if you don’t have a big budget. There are many backsplash possibilities that will match any vision you have for your kitchen. You can choose from a classic subway tile backsplash or a multi-colored glass mosaic to complete the look. Home improvement stores often have backsplash panels that feature peel and stick application for easy installation.
- Replace old countertops
Your countertops are another big part of your kitchen that probably could use overhauling. If you have your home’s original or laminate countertops, think about replacing them with granite or quartz. While these materials are more expensive, they are more durable and require less maintenance and cleaning. Updated countertops can ultimately increase the value of your kitchen and home in case you decide to put a “for sale” sign in front of your house.
With these custom changes, you can make your house feel more like the perfect home for you and your family.
