Draw and Cabinet Hardware Changes
Changing the drawer and cabinet pulls can create a different mood in the kitchen.
Swapping out cabinet pulls for a different finish can be just the lift the room requires. There are many different types, including those with a modern silver finish, antiqued gold or brass, wood carved, and porcelain.
Draw and cabinet pull come in many different designs to reflect the theme or design you are hoping to pull into your kitchen.
Keep in mind how your previous pulls are installed, and look for hardware that can fit in a similar fashion to avoid any unsightly holes.
A Wash of Color
If you all into your kitchen and it feels dark or depressing, it might be time to bring the mood up a little. Painting the kitchen walls a brighter or fresh color can bring more light into the room.
New paint or finish for cabinets can also be a less expensive way to breathe new life into the space. Make sure to remove hardware and remove the cabinet doors before you paint these to ensure an even coat and smooth edges.
Adding a Rug
If the flooring in a kitchen is uninspiring, or just simply doesn’t match your inspiration, a rug can make a cozier space. Truly, some kitchen improvements begin from the ground up.
A rug can be both functional and inviting. Placing a smaller rug in front of the kitchen sink can make a more comfortable space to rinse and wash dishes. Putting a rug under a kitchen workbench or dining room table can separate and accent the area of the room.
Install a Water Filter
Installing purifying water filters to a residence’s most used tap can revitalize your health. While they may not be the most visible feature in a kitchen, the health benefits bring new value to your space.
A good water purifier can be one of many kitchen improvements you make to your space. Removing pollutants and unhealthy additives to water can refresh both the home and those who reside in it.
Switch Out the Sink Faucet
There are so many styles of faucets available on the market today. Removing the current faucet and replacing it with a new one can make for a more ergonomic workspace.
Give yourself more room to work in the sink with a higher sink faucet, or find a piece with a better spray nozzle to speed up kitchen cleaning.
Install New Storage
Using a rack for under the cabinets can be a space to both display coffee and tea mugs and store them. A new spice rack, or magnetized spice rack on the refrigerator, can make necessary items creatively available in plain sight.
