Quick and Easy Kitchen Fix-Ups
Kitchen Fix-Ups…If you’re anxious to fix up your home, you’re not alone.
You may not be able to give your home a total makeover, but adding simple upgrades can make an extreme difference. For many homeowners the kitchen is at the top of the home improvement list.
Here are some quick and affordable kitchen fix-ups:
The biggest visual in your kitchen is the countertop, and the backsplash to go along with it, so replacing them with new materials or even with vintage marble tiles will make an immediate impact. If granite and stone counter tops are out of your budget, consider some of the new laminate countertops and solid surfacing materials.
If you can’t replace all of your kitchen cabinet doors, jazz them up with attractive new kitchen cabinet hardware. You can find a large variety of cabinet door handles and drawer pulls at home improvement stores to match every decor, from country to contemporary.
Instead of replacing all of the lighting, use dimmers to instantly change the look and functionality of the room. Most can be installed in 30 minutes and makes a dramatic difference in a rooms decor.
Tear up that old yellowed linoleum floor. The new high-pressure laminates can give the look of a much more expensive natural wood flooring. Patterns range from time-honored favorites like cherry, oak and maple to burled mahogany and exotic woods.
Nothing compares to a fresh coat of paint for improving the look of your kitchen. This is especially helpful if you have dark cabinets, which were once popular but are now costly to replace.
By keeping the current cabinets and brightening everything else with a fresh coat of paint that complements your counter top, hardware, lighting and flooring, you’ll cook up a brand new look at a bargain price.
