So you’ve just moved in to your new place. Congratulations! So what if it is small, it’s yours and your office is but 10 minutes away! However, that tiny or bland kitchen may put a damper on your ‘own place’ glow. Fortunately for you, there are some simple adjustments to upgrade that kitchen.
REDO COUNTERTOPS WITH INSTANT GRANITE
Most houses and condominium units on the lowerend of the price spectrum have laminate countertops. They’re ugly, synthetic, and remarkably prone to scratches and stains. Do yourself a favour, and invest in some instant granite which is easy to install and is fade resistant, besides being easy to clean. This faux granite tops will have your kitchen looking photo shoot ready in an hour.
ADD IN SOME INSTANT BACKSPLASH
A backsplash which is the section of material added onto the wall behind a sink or a counter, usually acts as an easy to clean surface so that messes, especially water and oil will not stain the wallpaper. Who says your backsplash has got to be the usual old white tile? Spruce up that area by decorating it with designs of your choice.
COVER CABINETS IN PAINT OR CONTACT PAPER
One way to brighten up your kitchen is with colour. Painting your cabinets in bright hues will add charm to it. For those who cannot be bothered with the hassle of paint, there is good news for you – Contact Paper! Much alike the instant granite, the easy to apply laminated adhesive vinyl would add decorative accents to any horizontal or vertical surface.
FIX YOUR LIGHTING
Transform the atmosphere in your kitchen by revamping the lighting. One idea is to install undercabinet lighting using thin, low-profile strips made by Inspired LED. These lights which can be found in any shape, size or price range are super-easy to install. As they are aimed at the countertops, the existing colors might suddenly look prettier and your cabinets won’t even need any repainting.
THROW IN A POTTED PLANT
Plants are an easy way to add colour and life to your kitchen. You could kill two birds with one stone by having a potted herb that you could harvest to use in your cooking.
