5 Ways to Improve the Look of Your Kitchen

If you want to give your kitchen a mini-makeover but don't have a big budget, there are still some great projects that will improve the look of your kitchen. And, you can finish many of these easy kitchen DIY projects in an afternoon or a weekend!

1. Update Hardware

A simple way to give your kitchen an updated look is to install new hardware. With a few simple tools, a trip to the hardware store and an afternoon of work, your kitchen will look amazing.

You can update faucets on the sink or the handles of the cabinets. No matter what the style of your kitchen, updating the hardware is a small job that can have a big effect on your kitchen.

2. Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

Over time, painted cabinets and the walls can fade and become dirty, especially in the kitchen. From letting natural light stream in while you cook to food splatters, paint can need an update in the kitchen much faster than in other rooms in your home.

Give a fresh coat of paint to the walls or the cabinets in your kitchen, and you'll see a big improvement. Whether you want to add pops of color or give a cleaner look to the room, painting is an easy and affordable project.

3. Add a Backsplash

Adding a backsplash to your kitchen can provide a splash of color or a more understated accent feature to the room.

Creating a backsplash is an easier project than you might think, too. All you need is the right number of tiles, a good adhesive and the time to get all of your measurements right. There are even some peel-and-stick tiles on the market, making the job even simpler!

4. Cut the Clutter

The longer you live in your home, the more the kitchen — and any other room — become cluttered. Taking the time every once in a while to reorganize the kitchen can make it look completely different when you're done.

Whether you're tackling your refrigerator, your pantry or the countertops, cleaning out old items you no longer use or foods that are expired make a big difference in your kitchen.

5. Change the Decor

Redecorating is another easy kitchen DIY project to give the room a new look. Hang some new artwork, buy new decorative items for the counter or add some fresh herbs and other plants. From going out shopping to find the right pieces to arranging and hanging them in your kitchen, this project won't take too much time. And, it's easy to do on a variety of different budgets.
