5 Kitchen Makeover Ideas You’ll Love

For foodies and chefs-at-heart, the kitchen is a sanctuary. Whether it’s a small change or an entire remodeling job, having a kitchen makeover is an important decision that will ultimately give your home more value and an entirely new personality.


Here are some ideas you can try out to breathe some new life into your kitchen.


  1. Repainting or wallpapering. Did you know that vivid, sunshiny colors are appetite stimulants? Reds, oranges, yellows, and other warm tones are perfect for the kitchen as these are reminiscent of delicious, healthy ingredients and meals.Green, on the other hand, is associated with health, wellness, energy, and abundance. This cool shade is a perfect choice for those who love cooking wholesome dishes.If you’re a bit hesitant to go for these bold color choices, try wallpapers with accent colors first. Or you may want to try the shade on one wall first. Once you’ve gotten used to the shade, you can slowly incorporate the color more and more into your kitchen.
  2. Refinishing kitchen cabinets. Cabinets don’t only serve as storage spaces, they are also focal points in your kitchen. Give your kitchen cabinets a new look through a fresh coat of paint. If you’re more of the minimalist type, pick a low-key shade that goes with your walls and floors. For the more adventurous, try bold colors that really draw the eyes in, like red or sunshine yellow.For those who love a more rustic or classic charm, you can choose to stain your wooden cabinets instead or repainting. Lighter shades like honey, oak, pine, or maple work well with countryside decor, while darker stains like walnut, cherry, rosewood, or mahogany are perfect for more elegant or traditional designs.
  3. New fixtures. Appropriate lighting can give your kitchen a new look without spending too much. If you have a small space, the proper fixtures can also make your kitchen look bigger and airier. Pick whiter lights that are closer to the ceiling for a more open feel. Bigger kitchens can also benefit from new lighting – warmer tones, for example, can inspire a cozier atmosphere despite a larger space.Updating your sinks and faucets, on the other hand, goes a long way in giving your kitchen a new look without sacrificing practicality and personality. Ceramic sinks are very shabby chic in nature, while stainless steel and chrome fixtures give a sleek and modern feel to your kitchen.
  4. New floors and counters. Tiles are a fun way to give your kitchen a makeover. There is a wide array of patterns and colors to choose from, and different materials like natural stone, ceramic, and porcelain. Tiles are also readily available so you don’t have to look too far for the perfect supplies.Darker tiles work well for modern kitchens, and are also perfect for hiding stains – ideal for households with kids. Lighter colored tiles, on the other hand, are best for the bright and chic, countryside looks.
  5. Updated storage. Cramped kitchens can benefit from vertical storage. Hanging pots and pans from hooks or racks on the wall or ceiling can give much needed additional space. Open shelving can give the illusion of a bigger kitchen, and also give a platform for showcasing a china and silverware collection, for example.
    Shelves can also be made of different materials, again accommodating your style preferences. Metal, wood, or synthetic materials can be made into shelving and other storage units to suit you and your kitchen’s personality.
