How to Update Your Kitchen – Part 1

If you’re like most of us, you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, but you may not pay a lot of attention to it other than making sure it’s reasonably clean. Go in there and take a look – is it dated? Could it use a facelift? The good news is that a kitchen update doesn’t have to require a full-scale remodel! There are a few ways to give your kitchen a brighter, fresher look without busting the budget.

The quickest and least expensive of these is to change out the hardware on your cabinets to give them a different look. I’m working with a client right now to give his kitchen a quick facelift before I list his home for sale, and he’s kindly agreed to let me share a few pictures with you!

 Above, you can see the difference that new hardware can make (old on the left, new on the right). His cabinets are already in great shape, so a quick hinge and handle change-out is an easy, inexpensive way to bring his kitchen into the 21st century. (Pro tip: if your kitchen is large or has a lot of cabinets, ask your local hardware store to order exactly the quantity you need. Ordering in bulk can get you a big discount!) Another bonus is that if you can use a screwdriver, you can do this project yourself.

We’re not stopping here, though. Tune in tomorrow to see the difference that brand-new appliances can make!
