Fall in love with your kitchen again

Appliance Upgrades 

There are tons of options out there for choosing new appliances. Do you go with stainless or that cool new black stainless color all of the models are showing? If there is one thing I have learned, it’s that the newest options will always be the most expensive. I prefer a classic that will still look fantastic, 10 years from now. A great option is choosing one of the pre-selected sets that most stores are offering. It takes the guess work out of pricing. And most sets are the newest models, with all of the latest and greatest features. Your kitchen will take on a whole new attitude with matching brand new appliances.

Tile and paint 

Turning dark walls into a lighter color will do wonders for the feeling of the size of the room. Don’t be afraid to go all white. Clean white walls with touches of color added in, will magically make your kitchen feel brand new again. Then, visit your local tile store for how to’s on adding your own kitchen back splash. Yes, you can do this yourself! Adding a beautiful stone or ceramic backs plash will give that kitchen some class. Not to mention make it much easier to clean when pasta sauce gets splattered everywhere.
