Now that spring has finally sprung, it is the perfect time to update your kitchen. This can feel overwhelming, but if you break it down into specific tasks, it is much more manageable. Check out these ideas but remember that replacing your kitchen windows or your exterior door would be a great way to give your kitchen an instant facelift. To learn more about that option, contact Progressive Insulation & Windows at (800) 500-6200 for a quote.
Declutter the Space
It is often true that the best place to get started is to declutter the space. As an added bonus, it is an entirely free step you can take. We recommend taking everything off of your counters and giving them a good clean. Then only replace the items that you use on a daily basis or are too heavy or cumbersome to move (such as a stand mixer). Then find other places for the items you don’t use daily. Be ruthless – do you really use your toaster daily? If not, there is no reason for it to take up precious counter space.
Upgrade Your Kitchen Lighting
There are several reasons that kitchen lighting is important. First, it helps illuminate what you are doing. Wisely placed task lighting can make a big difference in how you cook. Second, it changes the mood. Install several different lighting options so that you can turn it on full blast when you need to cook up a storm, or you can turn it down many notches to enjoy a cozy cup of tea at the end of the day.
Paint the Kitchen
One of the biggest changes you can make to your kitchen is to change the color. Most people prefer a light color for their kitchen, such as light blues, white, or pastel. If you would like a darker color, consider adding it as an accent wall. Then paint the rest a neutral color. This can give you the dramatic look you want without overwhelming the space.
Install New Windows or a New Exterior Door
The good news about installing new windows is that you do not necessarily have to replace your current windows with identical windows. There are actually several different options you can choose from, whether larger windows or a different style. Likewise, adding a new homey exterior door can truly transform your kitchen.
