Steps to a Kitchen Renovation


An outdated kitchen can feel drab, gloomy, and minimize value if you are trying to sell. It can be updated with a few simple, low-budget projects which can freshen it up and add value to your home for future homebuyers. There are a few essential steps to a kitchen renovation as follows.

Repainted Cabinets

A simple way to update your cabinets is to sand them down and repaint them or give them a good wooden stain. You’d be surprised at high much this can drastically change the look and ambience of your kitchen. Start by picking a colour scheme and adapting your other small projects around it

Updated Hardware

Updating the outdated hardware on the pull drawers and cabinets can make a world of a difference in finishing up their refresh. This can add a modern touch an make your kitchen look completely different than what you initially started with.

Painted Seating

Repaint your seating. If you have old honey-coloured kitchen barstools or dining room chairs, they can easily be repainted in your newly-chosen colour scheme. Paint each chair in a different colour or pick one cohesive colour palette, the choice is yours!

New Backsplash

Outdated backsplash with built-up dirt in the grouting can bring down the look of a kitchen immensely. Older tiles from the ’50s-’70s tend to be brown, yellow or mustard yellow in colour, colours that can close in a room alter its ambience. Replace it with fresh, light colours or white, helping to reflect light throughout the entire kitchen.

Cabinet Lighting

Under-cabinet lighting will add an extra layer of light to your kitchen renovation. Only keep them on at night for a candle-lit feel, or turn them on for extra light while you are cooking. They can brighten up your space and make for a cool vibe for a party.

A Patterned Area Rug

A cozy area rug can make winters warmer and softer on your feet, it can hide an ugly and outdated floor, and add old stains or marks on your floor.
