Whether you live with a family or by yourself, the kitchen is one of the busiest spaces in a home. Your kitchen should reflect your style and needs by making it easy to use, move through and stay organized. What’s the best way to make your home and day-to-day life more functional?
A new kitchen renovation is the best way to update your home and create a more functional home.
Whether you choose an elaborate kitchen remodel or make a few changes to your kitchen with a quick renovation, remember that the basics remain the same: do not cut corners, and spend your money wisely where it counts.
One of the quickest ways to update your kitchen is to install a new kitchen backsplash. Whether you opt for fresh light traditional tiles, beautiful marble or stone backsplashes, or re-do the existing design, an updated kitchen backsplash adds new life to any outdated kitchen. If your budget only allows for one update, a new kitchen backsplash may be exactly what your new kitchen makeover needs.
On the other hand, if your budget allows for a more extensive kitchen remodel, installing new kitchen cabinets can really update the look and style of any kitchen design.
The choices here are endless: from ready to use kitchen cabinets with basic hardware, to fully customized kitchen cabinets with premium hardware, there is something for everyone in terms of cabinet design in 2019.
Are you still using the mobile phone you bought in 2005? The same TV? Or maybe the same computer? Unlikely, right? Then why should it be any different for the appliances? Yes, there is a charm to the old refrigerator but it consumes more electricity than three of the modern machines; the same goes for the microwave and the oven too. New appliance can update the design of a kitchen instantly and make it more efficient and easy to use for the entire family.
If “minimalism” is your buzzword, then changing the hardware on your cabinets is the perfect place to start before diving into a major kitchen renovation.
They are some of the most used items in the kitchen and hence are prone to damage and general wear and tear. Also, they are relatively more affordable than, say, a new cabinet itself and sometimes go a long way in extending the shelf life of the cabinet itself. It is best to go for a mix and match between pulls and knobs as that ensures a longer design shelf life while elevating the overall look of the kitchen. Similarly, changing the kitchen faucet can update the look and life in your kitchen.
Updating your kitchen can be a fun and enjoyable task if you break it down into categories. A new kitchen in 2019 may mean making smaller changes like updating your kitchen backsplash or installing new ready to use kitchen cabinets, but making these smaller changes will drastically update your kitchen into a trendy, Pinterest worthy home, one step at a time.
