Do you have visions of finally greeting loved ones with warm hugs and laughter around a table of delicious food this Thanksgiving, only to look around your kitchen and see that you have a little work to do? You still have time to make a few upgrades to bring new life to your kitchen. Here are four easy kitchen upgrades you can make in preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Paint Your Cabinets
This is probably going to take a little commitment depending on the size of your kitchen. Set aside a weekend to tackle your cabinets in advance. It’s a great way to drastically change the look of your kitchen. With an array of colors, your options are endless. Just make sure that the color you pick complements your existing style.
Update or Add a Backsplash
A backsplash is a great way to add a little fun to your space. Don’t be afraid to play with patterns, textures, and bold colors. If you wander out of your comfort zone in your choice, go for a peel and stick option. It can be more affordable and less of a commitment in the long run.
Update Your Hardware
Keep things super simple by swapping out drawer pulls and knobs. Bring new life to your cabinets by mixing metals for a modern feel.
Update Your Lighting
Updating your existing lighting or adding additional lighting is an easy, functional way to freshen up the look of your kitchen. Dim, dated lighting can make your space feel drab and meal prep stressful. Consider adding lights underneath your cabinets to brighten up countertops and add more interesting ambiance.
