However, the accumulation of oil and grease makes it wear faster than other parts of the house. A kitchen renovation is a great way to bring a new life and improve function of your old kitchen.
We have compiled a few tips below to help you remodel your kitchen like a pro:
i. Change the cabinet’s hardware
This is a very simple and easy project since there is no experience or power tool required. For instance, you will only need a screwdriver to install new pulls or knobs. However, before you buy the pulls or knobs, make sure they do not only fit but also match with the aesthetics of the cabinet. In doing so, the pulls or knobs will not look like out of place.
ii. Upgrade the lighting
Most kitchens do not have adequate lighting, especially when natural light is limited. Fortunately, lighting up the kitchen is a simple project that can significantly transform your kitchen. For instance, you can swap the old incandescent bulb with a modern LED bulb. In fact, an LED bulb is more efficient and comes in a variety of hues.
iii. Paint the walls
A fresh coat of paint will transform your kitchen, especially if you choose the right colors. To spice things up, you can try to add a focal point like painting a single bold accent wall. When painting the cabinets, you have to proceed with caution. Painting the cabinets is more complicated than just painting the walls and may require an expert.
iv. Install a backsplash
This is an eye-appealing project that you can accomplish in a few days. The easiest way is by installing peel-and-stick tiles because they come in a variety of colors, designs and textures. Also, they do not require special tools to install.
