  • Opening Intro -

    You decide that you want to change the appearance of your kitchen but don't have the funds for a complete transformation.


Fortunately, there are a few simple updates to the fixtures in your kitchen that can give it an instant facelift. Consider the colors of your kitchen as well as the theme in the room so that the new fixtures flow well with the other details.


There can never be enough light in your kitchen. From natural light through the windows to lights that are installed under the cabinets, you need as much lighting as possible so that you can clearly see what you’re doing when you’re cooking and serving meals.

A few changes to the fixtures over your dining table and sink can result in a beautiful look in your kitchen that enhances the function as well.

A plumbing feature that is easy to upgrade in your kitchen is the faucet. You can also upgrade the sprayer if there is one in the sink. Consider bright faucets that deliver a modern touch to your kitchen.

You want the details to combine with the appliances as well as the light fixtures in the room so that everything flows together instead of one component standing out from the others, such as a faucet that is made of a different material than the light that is above the sink.

Add Patterns

Whether you use paint or wallpaper, adding a few patterns to your walls is an easy way to upgrade your kitchen. Try to use patterns that match the colors that are already in your kitchen.

Common areas where you can add new colors or designs include above the sink, behind the stove, or as a way to create an accent wall while leaving the other walls a neutral color. There are usually wallpaper designs that look like tile that can add dimension to the room, or you can get a few pieces of inexpensive tile to cover a small area of a wall.

Instead of installing more cabinets in your kitchen, you can put floating shelves on one or two walls. If you ever want to change the location of the shelves, then you can simply remove them and put them where you want. These shelves allow you to easily display items that you might normally keep hidden inside cabinets, such as special dishes.

Since the kitchen is a room in your home that is used by everyone in your family, consider making a few changes that create a quick upgrade. A few new colors can make the room brighter. You can also add more storage or options for displaying items in your kitchen that stay well within your budget while giving you the kitchen you desire.
