The more you use your kitchen, the more you may look for ways to freshen it up. Regular use gives your kitchen a tired look in a short time. Although it’s tempting to do it up with a totally new
look, your budget may not permit it. You’ll be happy to know that just a bit of sprucing up can turn your kitchen around. Let the kitchen experts, Leenlong Cowry Kitchen Cabinets and Countertops, guide you on a kitchen makeover within a budget.
If your kitchen looks cluttered, you don’t always need more room to put things away. Declutter instead. 75% of homeowners in a kitchen survey by Houzz 2018 Kitchen and Bath Study said that decluttering is topmost on their mind, while 66% contemplated recycling, and 49% talked about recycling. Once you have thrown away what you don’t need, increase the working area by installing space-saving under-cabinet drawers, drawer organizers, utensil and dish organizing racks. Put away your cutlery, dishes, plates and spices in the organizing racks or drawers. All items stay in place when organized in neat compartments and your kitchen looks cleaner.
Pull Out Bins
If your kitchen smells bad, it could be because of an overflowing garbage bin. You don’t need to buy a bigger bin for that. Just place a container of baking soda near the bin to absorb the smell.
Even better, clean it out as soon as it fills up and find a different place for it, away from direct view. How about hiding it in a slider drawer or cabinet so the bin is out of sight?
It is easy and inexpensive to paint cabinets yourself. Empty out the cabinets before painting, clean them thoroughly with degreaser, and then apply paint. If your kitchen doesn’t get much
light, colour them a crisp white, soft cream or light grey. Add a pop of colour here and there to make it brighter, such as bright teal or vivid red. The mix of colours will give your kitchen a
vibrant, new eclectic feel. Revive cabinets with new knobs, if they don’t need a coat of paint.
Installing vinyl flooring is really not that hard. Vinyl is available in a wide range of finishes, including hardwood. Unpeel the backing from the plank to stick it over your current floor.
Stainless Steel Sink
If you have a porcelain sink, switch to a stainless steel one. Although old world porcelain sinks look quaint, it may make your kitchen look more dated. A new copper backsplash, brass bins or butcher block countertops can help you retain the old world charm while making the kitchen appear more updated.
