Besides just changing the color of your cabinets you can do other things in your kitchen to give it its own look.
Different kitchen styles:
Give the Island its own accent color
While the island is detached and already stands out a little on its own, giving it it’s own accent color will really help your kitchen pop. It gives the heart of the home its own heart. You can really make a statement with how you style your kitchen. You can paint the cabinets white and the island yellow to make it brighter, or make the island grey to keep a more sophisticated feel.
If you don’t have an island in your home, try giving the two levels their own colors.
These small but subtle changes give your kitchen a personality of its own! If your kitchen is smaller, doing this will separate the room and make it seem a little bigger.
Bonus Tip: If you have a really small room, painting the ceilings white will make it seem taller and bigger, also sticking to lighter colors on the wall. If you have a room that seems really big, you can do the opposite and paint the ceilings black to make the room seem smaller.
Don’t like the grain marks on your cabinets? — Don’t worry, we can take that away as well!
Do you want your kitchen to
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 an 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.
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.
6. Add window treatments.
Dress up your bare windows to instantly dress up your kitchen. Depending on the style you choose can make or break the look in your kitchen.
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.
