home-1416381_1280Updating your kitchen design can be an expensive undertaking when you consider all of the areas you can improve; from new floors, cabinets and counter tops, to appliances and hardware. But you don’t need a complete kitchen overhaul in order to give the space a much-needed facelift. Instead, incorporate some new with the old, and with some style and ingenuity you can leverage a few changes into a completely new look.

We’ve compiled a list of low cost, minimally invasive options that can be done yourself and only take a few hours, as well as one area that requires some investment, but is worth every penny.

#1 A Fresh Coat of Paint
Most kitchens have a neutral theme, but it doesn’t have to be that way. With one bold color accent, you can transform a small space into appearing larger while brightening up the entire room. Color isn’t only reserved for walls. Give your old cupboards a new look with a fresh coat of paint. Color can be scary, but it can also be the accent that brings your room to life.

#2 Updated Hardware
Whether you decided to repaint your cabinets a bold new color, or they are still the original hue, a great way to give the space a new look is with updated hardware. Change the look and feel of your cabinets with stylish new knobs and handles.

#3 New Countertops
Replacing countertops is a big job and certainly not a quick fix, but it’s worth the expense when the job is done. Turn an ordinary kitchen with dated Formica counters into an extraordinary one with tile, marble or granite countertops in Lewisville and Flower Mound, TX. The transformation your kitchen will undergo with just the addition of new countertops will give the space a completely new look.

The kitchen is the heart of the home. You want to enjoy the setting you’re in, gathering with your family and friends. A few small DIY changes and the installation of new countertops and you’ll never want to leave your modern new kitchen.
