Upgrading your kitchen is a proven way to increase the value of your home. Kitchen updates can be extravagant affairs requiring the contracted services of plumbers, carpenters, and painters, or it can be a handful of simple DIY efforts meant to improve functionality. Even a few interior design updates can go a long way in increasing the value of your home. These design tips are intended to be easily achieved by an inspired homeowner with a penchant for home improvement but, perhaps not much in the way of actual carpentry skill.
Perhaps the easiest way to upgrade your kitchen is with a new coat of fresh paint. Kitchens collect a surprising amount of grease and grime on the ceiling and walls, and over time this can make walls appear discolored and dirty. Scrub down those walls and furnish them with a new coat of one of this year’s trendiest hues.
Another simple way to uplift your kitchen space is with a new window treatment. Valances are charming and can be customized in distinct colors, patterns, and textiles, and window shades come in a wide variety of silhouettes. Honeycomb shades are modern and sleek, while Roman shades are classic and graceful. Chose a window treatment that best suits your kitchen, your style, and your privacy needs.
Updating the details of your kitchen like curtain pulls, cabinet knobs, and shelf liners can all bring a lightness and newness to your space. Consider the many details in your kitchen, from wall adornments to rugs to table runners; each is an opportunity to elevate the look of your kitchen.
