A kitchen makeover can do wonders for your home and your life! A space that works better makes you more likely to cook, which means you’ll save money on takeout and eat healthier meals. Furthermore, if you’re often cooking with friends or family, it’s important to have a kitchen that’s conducive to having guests over (and preparing their favorite dishes). To help you navigate the world of kitchen remodeling, we put together this roundup of these kitchen makeover ideas and trends. All of which are beautiful, useful, and easy to incorporate into your home.
L-shaped Kitchen Design
Kitchens with an L-shaped design are a modern kitchen’s best friend. This layout works great for homes where space is limited because it offers a good deal of natural light and space, especially when combined with a large island or peninsula. The other advantage to an L-shaped kitchen is that you don’t need to worry about what style or color scheme you choose; the two sides can be completely different from one another, and they will still look good.
Open And Airy Kitchen
If you’re looking to make a more open and airy kitchen, try removing some walls—or even better, just ripping them out. Removing some of your kitchen walls gives you an opportunity to create a natural flow between your cooking space and dining room. This can make for an especially functional space if you live in a small apartment with limited square footage—it’s also a great way to save money on rent by turning one large unit into two separate spaces.
If you love plants and want to add greenery to your kitchen, try adding a window garden. Window gardens make it easy to grow herbs, vegetables, and other greens indoors, with minimal effort. They usually include everything you need—from soil to seedlings—and take up very little space on your windowsill. Even if you don’t have access to natural sunlight, many models are equipped with light bulbs that provide enough energy for healthy plant growth.
White And Bright Kitchen Makeover
To make a white kitchen appear bright, you want to eliminate as much dark wood from cabinets and furniture as possible. However, if you’re short on funds or can’t afford to replace all of your cabinetry with lighter-colored options, just removing one cabinet door can have a dramatic effect. Just try not to close that door too often! The same trick can work in bathrooms with tiled walls; painting them bright white will instantly brighten up any space.
A Mini Makeover
If you’re looking for an easy way to update your kitchen, or if you just don’t have a lot of money to spend on an extensive remodel, try a mini makeover. A mini-makeover can be anything from adding new cabinet hardware and paint to simply rearranging your kitchen furniture. Oftentimes, these small changes will go unnoticed at first. And that’s what makes them so effective!
Blue Kitchen Makeover
Another shade that’s becoming increasingly popular is blue. Keep in mind, however, that lighter shades like these often require a darker backsplash to avoid appearing washed out. When paired with black cabinets, light blues and teals can appear more subtle than they do against white cabinets. And can be just as bold and beautiful.
Antique Kitchen Makeover
If you’re looking for a new kitchen but don’t want to spend a fortune, consider an antique makeover. Find and restore old cabinetry or find pieces at secondhand stores or antique markets. This will give your kitchen that weathered look, but it won’t require all that work of restoring it from scratch! If you want something newer, however, there are plenty of companies that can create vintage-looking kitchens with some assembly required.
