3 Simple Kitchen Upgrades to Consider for Your Home

When designing your home, there’s a fine line between which upgrades you need and which upgrades you want. There are an infinite number of products available, and many of those tempting upgrades can be beyond your set budget. So, when working within a budget, the first step is simple: decide what you can afford and what you cannot.

A good rule of thumb when thinking about upgrades is to put your money towards the kitchen and bathrooms in your home. These areas create more resale value when upgraded, giving you more bang for your buck.

Ready to renovate and upgrade to your kitchen? Take a look at these three kitchen ideas that will help jazz up your home.

  1. Paint the cabinets.
    Consider adding a pop of color to your cabinets, such as a navy blue or pale yellow. This upgrade is both inexpensive and creates a unique look to your home. Be sure to keep the name of the paint color so that if you decide to add trim in the future, you can match the color easily.
  2. Provide task lighting.
    If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, it may be useful to add some under-the-cabinet lighting. The idea behind this is to illuminate the countertop to make food preparation easier on the eye. If you want to add task lighting, consider installing the lights closer to the front of the cabinet. Doing so will ensure that the light is focused on the counter and not the tile backsplash.
  3. Install deep drawers.
    It can be a puzzle game trying to fit large pots into a cabinet with a height-constraint. Installing deeper drawers is useful for not only storing pots and pans, but also for ridding small appliances from countertops, such as toasters and blenders.

Upgrading your home doesn’t need to include complicated projects. There are certain design elements you can incorporate that are trendy, budget-friendly and time-conscious.
