Six remodeling tips for the kitchen

Six remodeling tips for the kitchen

According to home remodeling experts, a minor kitchen remodel is one of the best investments you can make into your home because it has a great return on investment when you sell your home. But even a minor kitchen remodel is a huge project to undertake. To make sure you don’t regret your decision to remodel, follow these six steps.




  1. Replace hardware. One of the easiest things you can do to change the look of your kitchen is swap out the cabinet hardware. Though you could replace all the cabinetry itself, that costs a lot of money and you probably won’t see a great return on that investment so assuming your existing cabinets are in good shape, a hardware swap is probably enough. Take your current hardware to a home improvement store and choose some new hardware that will not only complement your kitchen but will also hide the existing holes. In one hour or less, you can have all of the hardware swapped out.


  3. Add a splash of color. Another way to improve the look of your cabinets without paying a small fortune to replace them altogether is to give them a fresh coat of paint. Off-white is a great choice if you want a clean, timeless look. You can also replace outdated wallpaper with a fresh coat of light, neutral-colored paint.


  5. Modernize your countertop. New countertops are another great way to drastically change the look of your kitchen. Kitchen counters are a major focal point in the kitchen and it’s where you’ll do all of your meal prepping so it’s worth the investment to get something durable and attractive. Granite is the best material if you can fit it into your remodeling budget.


  7. Make your floor fabulous. Odds are, your kitchen floor makes up the biggest surface area in your kitchen so you can’t ignore it if you’re going to do a kitchen remodel. If you can afford new hardwood or tile, that’s going to look the best but floating laminate floors are easy enough to install that you can do it yourself and save some money. Peel-and-stick vinyl planks are another option which is surprisingly durable and will help you to get the most out of your remodeling budget.


  9. Update your appliances. Stainless steel appliances are a must for any kitchen remodel. Your kitchen will still look outdated no matter what else you do to it if you don’t update your appliances. Buy the whole set to take advantage of package deals and wait for a national holiday to get the best savings.


  11. Add a backsplash. A nice backsplash is a great way to add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen. It’s a small detail but it can make all the difference. Not only is a backsplash much easier to clean than the wall, but it’s another great way to add some color to your kitchen.
