It’s a new year, so why not make upgrading your kitchen your New Year’s resolution? As a kitchen store in Nashua, NH, we help homeowners like you craft their perfect kitchen at Cabinet Outlet. But we also know that many of our customers don’t have the budget to start from scratch and completely recreate their kitchen. If you are one of these customers, don’t worry! There are plenty of things you can do to upgrade your kitchen that won’t break the bank.
Here are a few ways to upgrade your kitchen on a budget with the team at your favorite kitchen store in Nashua, NH.
Make some simple cabinet upgrades.
You don’t have to buy new cabinets to make them look new. You can do something as simple as replacing the hardware. Create focal points with a shiny finish, or go for a sophisticated look with brushed chrome or brass. But there’s no rule that says you have to use the same hardware throughout your kitchen. Experiment with colors and patterns until you find what you like.
If you’d like to try something a little more dramatic with your cabinets, you can remove some of the doors to create open shelving. This change can make a small kitchen feel larger and more open.
Utilize your under-cabinet space.
If you have some space between the bottom of your cabinets and your counter, why not get some use out of it? Attach hooks or a rack to store pots and pans or larger utensils that take up space in your cabinets and drawers. It will make it easier to organize your kitchen and find what you need. Plus, you can keep items you use often easily accessible.
Add some more lighting.
More light makes everything better. If your fixtures are a little boring or don’t give off enough light, replace them with something brighter. You can also add under-cabinet lighting for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Under-cabinet lights are nice to leave on in the evening or a night when you don’t want the overhead fixtures on but still want some light in the kitchen. They also brighten up your counters so you can more easily see when you preparing food.
