5 Fun Kitchen Upgrades You'd Love To Try

One of these low-cost projects might just be what you need to complete your decor


Home renovation projects, regardless of scale, is always a big deal. Anyone who has experimented with trends or have taken risks when styling a space will know of how difficult it is—especially for the kitchen. If you're the type who enjoys switching up things in this part of the home to keep it updated, we've listed down five design pick-me-ups that you can try to help you achieve your dream aesthetic. 

1. Get a colorful sink. 

Trade in your trusty stainless unit for one that is much more vibrant—it may be a subtle change, but it is enough to make a statement without adding much else. If you're set on decorating it, consider placing a planter or two on your kitchen sink window

2. Change the hardware. 

One of the easiest ways to transform the kitchen is by switching basic knobs for brass ones. Although it costs a little more than your standard aluminum pieces, it will be worth the investment once you see how glam it will make your cooking corner look. 

3. Try colored subway tiles

Subway tiles isn't a stranger to anyone—the trend has been around for some time and for good reason. However, if you're not into the non-hues that they come in, you can give the trend a new twist with a splash of color. Experiment with shades of blue and green as cooler tones tend to match everything. 

4. Line kitchen cabinets with contact paper

If you aren't into the idea of renovation, you can still liven up your kitchen with contact paper. All you have to do is measure your cabinets and stick it to the back of drawers and cabinets. If you want something more temporary, you can try covering pieces of foam board with the fabric first before placing it in the cupboards.

5. Paint your ceiling. 

Give the underside of the roof a little love with a fresh coat of paint. In contrast with an equally bright floor, it gives the kitchen a vibe so lively that everyone would want to hangout in it.
