This awesome kitchen remodel I have been working on was recently completed and it has some great design features that can be easily applied to all kitchens everywhere. Here are some ideas to freshen up your stale kitchen....
1. New cabinet hardware: Replacing your cabinet hardware is a quick and painless way to update your kitchen. If you don't have any hardware- add some! The process is inexpensive and can make a surprising difference to your space. Also treat yourself to new towels, hot pads, and oven mitts. Here, just a little bit can go a long way.
2. New lighting: It is time to replace your fluorescent fixture or your bright brass chandeliers! New pendants, or a new island fixture can dramatically change a space without changing anything else!
3. Glass fronts on cabinet door: Very few of us are tidy enough to have glass fronts on all of our cabinet doors! However, glass fronts on select doors can make your kitchen look larger, a little edgier and you can highlight your serving piece collections. Try adding glass to the cabinets directly next to the sink or create transom windows by adding glass to the highest cabinet doors.
4. Material Swap: Swap out your countertop and backspash materials for something more up-to-date. Replacing these materials is a little more money and a bigger project to take on, but there's nothing better than fresh granite countertops or a backsplash that is off-the-hook! With the new granite finishes available (like leather, honed or flamed) and the beautiful stone or glass backsplash tiles available, you are sure to find a great combination!
