4 Easy Kitchen Updates to Help You Create the Kitchen of Your Dreams

Learn how these easy kitchen updates from Waunakee Remodeling can transform your kitchen into the kitchen of your dreams.

For many families, the kitchen is the center of operations, and the heart of the home. It’s the place where memories are created, bonds are strengthened and tummies are nourished. Updating your kitchen will not only improve function and add value, but may also provide an even more inviting space for loved ones to relax and linger just a little longer. 

Here are 4 of our favorite easy kitchen updates that pack the biggest punch:

Ever feel like your kitchen is just a mishmash of colors and styles? Repainting and then simplifying your design by tying your kitchen colors together into a cohesive color scheme works like magic. Don't shy away from textures, either--if you're going for a cleaner, lighter color scheme, a variety of textures add visual interest without overwhelming color. 
  1. Add or Update your Backsplash 
    When you think of kitchen remodeling, you might first think of cabinets, countertops, or major fixtures. But simply adding or updating your backsplash can make a huge impact, giving your space a warm pop of fresh color or a cleaner, more streamlined look. The right backsplash can set the tone for your entire space and give you a starting point for further renovations or provide the inspiration you needed for coordinating accents. 
     
  2. Replace the Hardware on Your Cabinets
    Want to give your cabinets a more modern look without replacing them entirely? Update your cabinet and drawer hardware to better capture the essence of your style in finishes that either contrast or complement your cabinetry color for maximum visual appeal. New hardware works as an effective facelift for your kitchen--and it's a simple, inexpensive change you'll enjoy for years. 
     
  3. Play with Color and Texture
    Ever feel like your kitchen is just a mishmash of colors and styles? Repainting and then simplifying your design by tying your kitchen colors together into a cohesive color scheme works like magic. Don't shy away from textures, either--if you're going for a cleaner, lighter color scheme, a variety of textures add visual interest without overwhelming color. 
     
  4. Update Lighting
    Take stock of the areas you most commonly use when you cook, eat or gather, then update your lighting to brighten up those areas. Track lighting and recessed lighting make it easy to focus light right where you want it, while under cabinet lighting adds shadow-free illumination to your countertops to highlight areas where you need it most.
