Your kitchen is one of the rooms in your home that can make or break your home’s value. For this reason, it’s important to keep it as modern as possible. But, you may not have the budget to renovate your kitchen every few years. Fortunately, there are quite a few easy DIY updates you can give your kitchen that can be done on your own and in very little time. The home improvement professionals at Kitchen & Bath Renovations give us some of the best.
Add Under Cabinet Lighting
You don’t have to be a master electrician to add lights under your kitchen cabinets. In fact, you don’t have to be an electrician at all. Push button and string LED lights that are either battery powered or that plug into an outlet are available at most big box stores and hardware stores. These lights mount easily using adhesive that comes with the lights or that can be purchased separately. Simply stick them up under the lights to add ambiance and focused lighting on your food and preparation surfaces.
Paint the Cabinets and Drawers
Paint and stain colors go in and out of style and it can be very expensive to replace out-of-date cabinets just because the color is no longer fashionable. Instead, paint the cabinets and drawers in a more modern color. You probably don’t want to do this too many times, but it is a great way to give your kitchen a brand new look in a very short period of time. You can usually get the painting done in a day, which in terms of home improvement is a quick turnaround.
Install a New Kitchen Faucet
Installing a new kitchen faucet is probably the quickest way to instantly upgrade your kitchen, especially if your kitchen just came with a basic faucet to begin with. Builders often put in the least expensive faucet model before the first residents move in, so changing it out when you’re ready to get a more modern kitchen is a smart move. There are hundreds of faucet designs on the market and many of them include technology like motion sensors to make your kitchen even more cutting-edge.
Install a Peel and Stick Backsplash
Tiling a backsplash is time consuming and difficult, especially when you have to mix grout and get the tiles to stick to the wall without falling off and breaking. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through that lengthy process if you choose a peel and stick backsplash instead. Simply mark out where you want the tile to go, peel the paper backing off each tile piece, and create your backsplash within a couple of hours (depending on how large of an area you want to tile). Peel and stick tiles come in dozens of colors and styles that can really change the way your kitchen looks in the matter of an afternoon.
Any one of these kitchen updates can be completed by a single person in under a few hours, but they’ll make a huge difference in the room’s appearance. In fact, if you do one of these DIY projects each week, in a month’s time, you’ll have almost a brand new kitchen!
