The new year always brings bigger and better things, so why not use this time to finally update your kitchen? After all, the holidays are finally over, the entertaining is complete, and we are pretty sure you are ready to see a little change in this space.
Here are 6 helpful tips to help you update your kitchen for the new year:
Update Your Fixtures and Hardware: Your kitchen faucet, your lighting fixtures, and the hardware on your cabinets and drawers can look a little outdated or worn over time. If you are ready for a fresh look in your kitchen, these are the first items that we recommend changing. One thing to note is that all the finish on these items should match or you take the risk of having a kitchen with a cobbled together look.
Add the Newest Technology: Imagine turning on your oven before you leave work, turning your crock pot to warm during your afternoon break, or having the lights turn on automatically when you walk into the room. This is all possible with some of the newer technology, which is why you may want to install some of these features in your kitchen this new year.
Upgrade Your Countertops: If you have been dreaming of new granite or quartz countertops, now may be the time to finally have them installed. We do suggest that you find out what maintenance requirements are needed for your new countertops before you purchase them, because you may decide that the ones that you wanted the most are not worth all the time that it will take to maintain them.
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint: Sometimes, all you need to do to make your kitchen look brand-new again is to add a fresh coat of paint. You can choose to repaint this space the same color that it is, or you can change things up a little with something new.
Add New Backsplash: The backsplash in your kitchen easily becomes the focal point, so add a fascinating design that will get everyone talking. There are many tile sizes to choose from, as well as shapes and colors, so you will definitely be able to find exactly what you need to match the current style and color of your kitchen.
Install a New Sink: Swapping out an old sink can instantly make your kitchen look better. You can choose a single or double tub; however, deep farmhouse sinks are our current favorites. All sinks are available in many different materials, so you won’t need to sacrifice your favorite material just to get the sink of your dreams.
These helpful tips can get you started as you update your kitchen in 2019, but there are many other things that you can do in this space as well. We recommend taking a good look at your kitchen and then deciding which options are best for achieving the look that you desire.
