Easy Ways to Update Your Kitchen

Replacing a backsplash is an easy way to give your kitchen a new look!

You may have a kitchen that is slightly out-of-date but not enough to warrant a complete remodel. Or perhaps you just want to switch things up a bit to refresh your kitchen’s look. Whatever the case, there are a few easy things you can do to update and rejuvenate your kitchen.

Replace Brass Hardware

While metal accents are definitely in, shiny brass fixtures are on their way out. Luckily, faucets and light fixtures are relatively easy to replace. Plus, replacing brass fixtures is an inexpensive way to update your kitchen. Try brushed or satin nickel for a more current look.

Vary Textures

You can give your kitchen instant visual interest by introducing varied textures. This can be something drastic, like replacing a solid surface countertop with a marble or granite countertop or replacing all appliances with stainless steel appliances, or it can be something small, like adding a wall hanging with eye-catching typography or replacing a lighting fixture with a new fixture that has a pop of color of an interesting shape.

Get Creative with Your Backsplash

The backsplash is usually not in the forefront of most people’s minds when planning a kitchen remodel. While cabinetry, countertops, and appliances are exciting, the backsplash can add a charming accent to the kitchen. If you’re looking for a quick change, consider updating your backsplash. A blue and white patterned porcelain backsplash can create a charming, rustic look, while a shiny metallic backsplash can make a kitchen look sleek and modern.
