We all know that the kitchen is one of the most important areas of the home. If you have time for a full complete kitchen remodel, you will have lots of options to choose from in your journey to a new kitchen. However, if you are looking for a quick way to refresh your kitchen without doing a full kitchen renovation, take a look at some of our ideas listed below.
Painting your Kitchen
The first design idea you can use for your mini-kitchen makeover, is painting the walls. It may seem too simple, but painting by far is the easiest way that you can transform your space in a matter of hours, not weeks or months. One of my favorite paint brands to choose from is Benjamin Moore paints. Your kitchen will appear brand new with just brush strokes and choosing the right color palette for the space. Another great thing that you can do is to paint your kitchen cabinets, if they are in good condition and just need a fresh makeover. This works really well, if your cabinetry is wood.
Changing Your Kitchen Flooring
The second fast and easy way to give your kitchen a mini-makeover is to change the kitchen flooring. You may think this will be a bear of a project, but it does not have to be so difficult or time consuming. Your Kitchen Design Remodeling Contractor can show you several different flooring options. One option that our clients are asking for a lot these days is the wood plank tile look or the vinyl wood plank tiles. Both methods are super easy to install in an existing kitchen with existing footprint. There are several brand manufacturers to choose from for this type of kitchen flooring. A few well known trusted brands that we use include Vallelunga Tile, Crossville Tile, Dal Tile, Porcelanosa Tile, Mohawk Vinyl Flooring and Armstrong Vinyl flooring.
Changing Your Kitchen Countertop
The third fast and easy way to give our kitchen a fresh updated look is to change your kitchen countertop. The kitchen countertop is the largest area in your kitchen. When you change this countertop it will immediately make the kitchen feel brand new. You have so many choices to choose from, including granite, quartz, quartzite, Marble and now large format porcelain tiles.
Changing Your Kitchen Lighting
The fourth fast and easy way to bring a fresh new look to your kitchen is by changing your kitchen lighting. Removing an old outdated drop ceiling with fluorescent lights and adding brand new LED lights is the first step. You can add a single LED light fixture in the center of the kitchen ceiling or you can have several LED recessed lights installed.
Changing Your Kitchen Backsplash
The fifth fast and easy way to bring a fresh new look to your kitchen is by changing your kitchen backsplash. The backsplash area sets the tone of the kitchen. You can make a boring kitchen come to life with new glass tiles. This by far is one of the super easiest quick fixes for your kitchen. Share your favorite color ideas with your kitchen design remodel contractor. Ask them to bring samples of new tile backsplash for you to see in your space. It will make a world of difference when you see the new glass tile backsplash in your kitchen.
