The good news is that you don't have to invest in any expensive renovations to give your kitchen a new look and feel. You can use the two following ideas to breathe new life into your culinary space:
Spruce up the Appliances
An excellent way to give your kitchen a new look without spending an arm and a leg is to update all of your appliances. Start by scheduling a maintenance appointment with a service provider to have each piece tuned up and checked out for possible problems that can be addressed before they become too expensive to repair. Once your service provider ensures that everything is in optimal working order, give each piece a new coat of epoxy appliance paint to make them look brand new again.
Start by sanding each appliance to get rid of chips and create a smooth surface. Once sanded, paint the appliances and let them dry in the garage or under a cover outside for 48 hours to ensure that they're completely dry before installing them back in the kitchen again. You'll probably want to paint your appliances one at a time, so your kitchen still functions, or paint everything at once right before going on a short vacation. Alternatively, you can simply plan alternative food options for two days so you can paint everything at once.
Replace the Lighting
By replacing your kitchen's lighting fixtures with automated overhead lights, you'll give the space a new look and provide your household with increased convenience. You can make sure the kitchen lights are turned on by the time you get home from work so it's inviting and ready for you to make dinner. Overhead lighting will saturate the kitchen and make it easy to see, whether you're chopping vegetables or peering into a deep cupboard.
You'll need to hire an electrician, like one from Action Electric, to rewire the lighting system and install the overhead fixtures, so schedule a few consultation appointments in your home to get accurate estimates. During the consultations, take the time to ask about licensing and insurance, experience and expertise, staff qualifications, and work guarantees. Using the answers to these questions should make it easy to compare all of the contractors you consult with and choose the one that will best meet your expectations and needs throughout the installation project.
These two projects are sure to give your kitchen new life and make the space more enjoyable to spend time in.Share
