California is filled with rich history. Being the most populated state in the United States, it has hundreds of thousands of homes, all with their own unique characteristics and styles, that have been passed down from generation to generation. These designs add character to a home, but often come along with their inevitable issues, such as…the kitchen becoming outdated. Below are the top four ways to easily update the design of your kitchen without spending tons of money.
One of the biggest signs of an outdated kitchen is the cabinets. Cabinet styles come in waves or trends that go out of style just as fast as they came in. When updating your kitchen, work with a cabinet refacing company Alamo, CA, to find a new style that not only fits the cabinet size itself, but matches the style of the home. You also want to keep it simple enough so that it won’t have to be replaced for many years to come. One of the most popular cabinet door Concord styles at the moment is a shaker cabinet. A simple white shaker cabinet is extremely versatile and can go with most kitchen styles, backsplashes, and kitchen countertops Walnut Creek.
Hardware is really important in redesigning cabinets and drawers. They show the age of a kitchen design, just as much as cabinets do. Today, modern hardware can be a flat bar, a hook that comes out over the cabinet door, or maybe no handle at all! It’s completely up to you. If you can’t decide, look up current kitchen trends or consult with a kitchen designer to get assistance.
For those who aren’t familiar with backsplashes, they are the tile or design that goes on the wall above the countertops and underneath the cabinets in a kitchen. Backsplash is a place where character and personality can come out in a kitchen design. The best backsplashes complement the cabinets and countertops. If you keep your cabinets and countertops simple and white, you may want to make your backsplash pop or have some sort of color or texture to create a nice balance in the kitchen.
The last but not least way you can spruce up your kitchen is through fixtures. Fixtures are faucets, sinks, and pot fillers, to name a few. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and finishes. Many people today choose to have a pop of color through their fixtures by choosing a copper, bronze, or gold finish in a cool-toned kitchen.
