4 Ways To Give Your Kitchen a Makeover

June 11, 2019

Your kitchen is the heart of the house. It is where you entertain, serve others and spend time as a family. Why not give it the makeover it deserves. You can do as little or as much as you like to make it a more functional and pleasant place to spend time.

1. Cabinets

Cabinets can be virtually any material from acrylic to wood to glass and come in any painted color imaginable. Choose what suits the style you prefer, but something that is very washable. It is a popular trend now to have uppers of one color and base cabinets of another. If there is room for an island, you might find that a real advantage.

2. Countertops

Countertops can be a real focal point. Surfaces are available in every budget range, from laminate to slate to granite and marble. Concrete is even used for some amazing counters and waterfall effects. Check out the kitchen countertops Milwaukee contractors can install to find out what is best for your kitchen.

3. Paint and Soft Surfaces

Painting the kitchen is the fastest way to make a big difference. Choose a sunny, bright yellow or lime green, monochromatic and sophisticated taupe or grey, or calming blue tones. Paint the trim a crisp white to contrast and clean up edges. Select easily cleaned drapery and dining upholstery that reflects the tone you want to set for the room in colors that complement the wall and cabinet colors.

4. Appliances

Trade in that old refrigerator that rumbles for a shiny new stainless steel finish with double doors. You can find ovens, dishwashers, and microwaves to match most models of refrigerators. Black is also making a big comeback. You could also select appliances which can be custom fitted with wood panels to match the cabinetry.

Don’t hesitate to plan a couple of projects to spruce up your kitchen. You will love the difference a few changes can make.
