re you tired of the way your kitchen looks? Do you wish you could wake up one day with your kitchen totally transformed? At Cabinet Magic, we’ve found that many clients wait until they can do it all at once – and that time can never come for some. That’s why it’s sometimes best to take it one step at a time. Following you’ll see seven simple ways you can transform your kitchen into a room you love walking into.

  1. Reface your cabinets
    One of the biggest differences you can make in your kitchen is to replace your cabinets. However, this is costly, takes time, and can create quite a mess while it’s being done. On the other hand, cabinet refacing is much faster and can save the average homeowner a significant amount of money compared to the cost of simply replacing cabinets. This process includes changing out the doors with your new look, changing out the drawers, and adding a veneer to the cabinet boxes so that everything matches.
  2. Add lighting to your cabinets
    Simply installing a ribbon of LED lights with low voltage under your cabinets can change both the look and feel of your kitchen. This is great for cabinets with things you want to show off, such as China, but it’s also a great job when you have an area of your kitchen that doesn’t get enough light.
  3. Consider adding glass insert cabinets
    Not everyone likes the open feeling of glass insert cabinets, but if you do then you can have them installed in a few of your cabinets. They allow you to display the things in your kitchen that you’re most excited about, such as fun dishes, fancy crystal, or your favorite cooking tools.
  4. Install new overhead light fixtures
    Adding new lighting here and there is a great option for accent lighting, but you should also consider ways you can make the kitchen stand out even further with pendant lamps. If you choose lighting that’s made to be energy efficient, you’ll not only have a brighter kitchen but you could see a reduction in your utility bills.
  5. Update your backsplash
    If you want to add a pop of color to your kitchen, consider adding a backsplash made out of bright, beautiful tiles. You could go with a classic solid option like subway tile, or, if you’re the creative type, you could add mosaic tile that brings true beauty to the kitchen. Remember that this isn’t just beautiful though – it’s functional too. A kitchen backsplash protects your walls from messes like hot oil.
  6. Install new countertops
    If your kitchen looks old and outdated, replacing your countertops may be the best way to counter that. Remember that your countertops stand up to daily use. They’ve worked hard for you – it may be time to move on to the next generation.
  7. Hang plants
    Many people don’t think of bringing plants into the kitchen but it’s actually a great way to keep the kitchen smelling nice, to bring in a little bit of nature, and to add color and liveliness to the kitchen.
