The kitchen is one of the most used areas of your home. It's the one everyone is in when you entertain, when you invite friends over for a cozy meal, or when you have holiday get-togethers with your family. With this room being so often used, you want this room to look its best all the time. If your kitchen is in need of some remodeling, or you just want to give it a facelift, there may be things you can do yourself. Read on for a few updates for your kitchen.
Remove some of your cabinets and instead install open shelving. Open shelving is a modern take on storing your dinnerware or decorative bowls. Open shelving is not for everyone, you will need to dust and clean a bit more often, as these shelves are going to be open for all to see. If you do install open shelving, don't overload it with decorative items, as this is just more for you to clean up. Keep the shelves simple and the decor or amount of dinnerware/decorative bowls minimal. Using open shelving can help to open up your kitchen a bit and will make it feel more open and spacious.
Install A Unique Range Hood
Instead of using an above-the-range microwave with a fan, remove that microwave and have a unique range hood installed instead. Install a range hood made of copper or one made of wood for something bold and unique. It will still have the fan option to remove steam and food odors but without the bulk of the microwave. The range hood will also offer a bit more space between your range and your hood, so it'll give you height and make this area feel more open.
Above-The-Range Water Faucet
Have a water faucet installed on the wall behind your range so you can fill pots with water as needed without having to lug the pots and pans across the kitchen to your stove. This is a great convenience to have, plus it offers a decorative touch to your kitchen as well.
If you are trying to update your kitchen, there are a few additions you can add or have added that will give it an updated look without the hefty price tag. If you are looking for a completely new kitchen and an entirely new look, you should hire a professional interior designer to help you with this task.
