Modernizing your kitchen will re-energize your entire home. If your kitchen feels outdated, but you don’t have the budget for a complete renovation, there are ways to make your kitchen feel brand new. Here are simple, yet dynamic changes that will update and modernize your kitchen.
When to Update Your Kitchen
Following interior design trends may keep your home up to date and modern. The problem with trends is that they go out of style. A contemporary home is only trendy for so long before it becomes outdated.
On the other hand, if you never follow trends or update your home, there’s a good chance that your kitchen is stuck in the past. Regardless of the reason, modernizing your kitchen is easier than you think. A few simple changes can quickly upgrade a kitchen and make it feel fresh again.
One of the simplest and most cost-efficient ways to modernize the kitchen is to switch out all of the hardware. Getting shiny (or matte) new knobs and pulls can invigorate outdated design and make the kitchen feel more modern. Bringing in a few new lighting fixtures can also – literally – shine new light on an old kitchen.
A more costly, but highly rewarding, upgrade is to change up the cabinetry, especially the upper cabinets. If all you have are cabinets, think about changing the type of storage you have. Shelves can add new dimensions and more efficient storage in some cases. New cabinets can be customized to meet modern needs.
Merely painting or staining your cabinets can make the kitchen feel more modern. Changing old and ornate cabinet doors to a sleeker and more minimalistic style can instantly revitalize outdated design.
Invest in new countertops. Make your kitchen more efficient by choosing a countertop material that will support a working kitchen. Natural stone countertops like granite and quartz are becoming increasingly popular for their durability and natural beauty. Countertops should be both functional and unique to your aesthetic and personal style.
