Small Updates Make A Big Difference

Not every kitchen remodel has to be a huge undertaking. Some remodels are about changing a few smaller things to create a whole new look and feel in your kitchen. One of the greatest parts about taking on these smaller updates is that you won’t feel like you’re spending a bunch of money, yet your kitchen will still look like a million bucks.

If you’re getting the itch to start changing things up in your kitchen, but you’re not quite ready to commit to a complete overhaul, consider these great ideas to spice up your space.

New Hardware and Fixtures

Cabinet hardware is like the icing on a great cake. While what’s underneath the icing is important, the way you decorate it is what everyone sees. Changing your cabinet hardware can really take a space from feeling plain to looking polished; and with endless options and combinations, the update will definitely be noticeable to guests.

Hardware isn’t the only thing that can be changed to create a new look in the kitchen. A new faucet can make a sink area go from bland to interesting. Updates to hardware and fixtures aren’t just about putting something new in your home, it’s about adding a touch of flair to your kitchen.


Something that can definitely change the way a room looks is a great light fixture. Lighting, being a necessity in any room, can become drab if you don’t play it up a little. Consider under-mounted lighting on your cabinets and pendant lighting over your kitchen island. Both will add ambiance as well as style to your kitchen.

Adding a Backsplash

Instead of re-tiling your floors, how about adding backsplash instead? An easy DIY project on the weekend, you can add an element of texture to your kitchen without spending a fortune. If you don’t already have a backsplash, it also will create an added barrier between any kitchen messes and your drywall.

Don’t worry if you’re not ready to take the plunge into a huge kitchen remodel. With these easy updates, you don’t have to worry about a huge budget or an extended period of time out of your kitchen.
