Cabinet Doors – Ways To Update Your Kitchen

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

One of the ways to instantly update the look and increase the value of your home is to renovate your kitchen. If you are looking for a total overhaul of your kitchen space, taking down walls and ripping up flooring, the project could take months.

But there are a few quick ways to modernise your kitchen design that can be done in a short amount of time. Here are three ways to update your kitchen without the hassle of a complete renovation.

Reface Or Replace Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen cabinets are one of the most obvious things in your kitchen that indicate the state and quality of the room. Outdated cabinets are a big eyesore and can drastically reduce the value of the room. Luckily, they can also be updated rather easily with a weekend project that consists of refacing or repainting the cabinet doors and other exposed areas.

To completely replace your kitchen cabinets, the entire project can be completed in a week or less, depending on the amount of time you have to work on the task. You can also get a new kitchen door to match the cabinets and complete the new look of your kitchen.

Install New Countertops

The second most noticeable aspects of a kitchen are the countertops. Outdated countertops can really hurt the look of the entire room. A modern kitchen usually has granite countertops, or counters made of eco-friendly materials like recycled glass or cement. If you do nothing else to update your kitchen design, new countertops will make a big impact.

Update The Backsplash

The third thing that you can do to update your kitchen is to get a new backsplash. Today’s modern kitchens are using small mosaic tiles and larger subway tiles to create an amazing look that is not only functional, but beautiful. A new backsplash in your favourite colors will drastically change your kitchen for the best. You can then build upon the colors in your new backsplash with matching towels, artwork or other accessories. You’ll feel like you are in a brand new kitchen, without breaking the bank or having to deal with a long and drawn out renovation project.
