by | Dec 7, 2017 | Remodels

With the winter holidays literally right around the corner, you may be thinking that doing any home upgrades is not the best idea. However, if the thought of several people in your sad kitchen makes you cringe, there are several things you can do to breathe a bit of life into the heart of the home. So here is a list of some kitchen upgrades you can make before the holidays.

Paint The Kitchen Cabinets

This is a very quick and affordable way to update your kitchen. Wooden cabinets are the easiest to paint over since you just take sandpaper to remove the gloss and get to work. So within a few hours, you could potentially have an entirely new kitchen.

Updated Fixtures

If you don’t have the time to paint your cabinets or you want to go above and beyond, another good update to make is changing out the fixtures. If you have had plain handles or knobs for years, buy some in bright contrasting¬†colors for a great pop in the kitchen. Popular colors like black, silver, and copper look great with most cabinet types. Also, switching out your light fixtures can be the perfect change to your kitchen.

Paint Accent Wall

Painting the entire kitchen can be quite the task, however, only painting one accent wall is can be one in an afternoon. Accent walls have become increasingly popular over the years and you can be as extravagant as you want to be. Anything from shiplap, wallpaper, to paint, an accent wall is a great addition to a kitchen.

Add a Backsplash

Backsplashes can either be a focal point or just a subtle detail that brings the kitchen to the next level. Whichever you decide, updating or adding a backsplash can be done quite easily or you always have the option to hire someone.
