Besides the above color tips, take a look at our tips below!
1. Update Your hardware:
Hardware can completely change the look of a piece of furniture and it can do the same for your cabinets. Replace drawer and cabinet pulls for a new unique look that instantly updates your entire space.
2. Use lighter colors:
A light color on the walls and cabinets instantly brightens a space making it look larger and in turn, more expensive. Light colors reflect light and hide imperfections, including those scratches, dings and dents in your old cabinets.
3. Change The lighting:
Chandeliers and pendants are the perfect accessory to not only brighten your kitchen but change the mood of the space. Standard lights that come in most homes and rentals are uniform. Mix it up and give the most used room in your house some personality or an unexpected element.
4. Use artwork:
Artwork is a great way to elevate any room and it will do the same in your kitchen. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold — it will give the illusion of a bigger space. Art is also a great option for renters who don’t have the freedom to change everything they’d like to. Make sure the art goes with the theme of where you are decorating. For example if you’re going with a barn theme, you might have red walls and pictures of farm equipment and such. There is not limit when it comes to decorating. Let your ideas flow freely.
5. Paint your appliances stainless steel:
Don’t have stainless steel appliances? No problem. Use a paint-on stainless steel finish to update your appliances that still work well, but are giving your kitchen a dated feel. Be careful, companies make different types if this liquid stainless steel depending on the appliance and its use. This is a simple way to make your appliances look a few thousand more dollars in worth!
6. Add window treatments:
Dress up your bare windows to instantly dress up your kitchen. The great thing about this, is there are so many options! Choose whatever goes best with the rest of the houses themes.
7. Hide small appliances:
Nothing brings down a space more than clutter. Keep your counter space clear of small appliances like toasters, blenders and coffee pots. They’re easy enough to take out when you want to use them. Having the counters and table almost completely bare make the area seem organized and calm compared to the usual hectic busy feeling that usually comes with a well used kitchen.
