Updates that are Free
You know what’s so appealing about photos of kitchens in magazines? They are 100% clutter free! Updating your own kitchen starts with decluttering! It’s incredible to see how much larger your kitchen will look once you clear off the counters. If you must have things like receipts, mail and keys and coffee pods within reach, keep these items stored together in an attractive basket or tray. Seagrass is definitely on trend, but before purchasing new storage items, look around and see what you may already own. You can always use spray paint to make your current basket and tray look better too!
Seasonal and Simple Ideas
Sometimes we are not in love with the color of our counter tops or cabinets. There are several things than can be done to work around this potentially costly issue and avoid construction. The goal should be to help focus your attention on the style you can control with a minimal budget. For example, consider purchasing new colorful place mats and replace tired rag like dish towels! You can add new items from the Dollar store or even somewhere like the thrift store of T.J. Maxx. On trend vibrant pops of color add so much character. Switching out table clothes and hand towels seasonally are another way to update without construction and aren’t too expensive.
Gone are the days of large and overbearing artificial plants. Switch to accenting your counters with small floral and greenery décor. It will breath fresh energy into a tired kitchen and update it for this decade. Adding small succulents, real or even artificial, and compact floral arrangements are fun too. Small overlooked accessories like colored measuring cups and serving spoons are helpful in adding your favorite colors to your kitchen.
DIY or Contractor Cabinet Painting
Other things to consider for a significant kitchen update without major construction would be to paint your cabinets!

Also, adding hardware, crown molding and even trim work to a boring stretch of drywall on the back side of a kitchen island, all help a lot. Switching up the color of your cabinets and updating kitchen islands with a little bit of trim work and paint are better off for homeowners.
