Inexpensive Ways to Update Your Kitchen

The kitchen at dockside

Hang Some Art

Whether you have some blank walls, room to rest a frame directly on your counter, or even a gap between the cabinets and the ceiling, you should add some art! Framed stuff artwork belongs in your kitchen just as much as it belongs in your dining or living room.

Add Wallpaper

There are so many great peel-and-stick wallpapers these days that it’s easy to spice up any room in a flash. You can pick by pattern – geometric, floral etc, or color to find something perfect for your space. 

Hang a Pendant Light

A fun and easy way to add new lighting without messing with all the electrical wiring is to hang a pendant light. Home Depot offers plenty of pendant lights that get plugged into an outlet (just plug it in and hang from a hook in the ceiling). The home improvement store also has pendant conversion kits, which allow you to screw a pendant light wherever a recessed bulb would usually go.

Get a Colorful Small Appliance

Small appliances are basically like throw pillows for your kitchen — only way more useful. Get a KitchenAid Stand Mixer in your favorite color or cute coffee machine. As long as you look at or use the machine regularly, it’ll be worth the real estate it takes up.

Hang New Curtains 

Switch out your curtains in your breakfast nook or kitchen for a fresh, new look.

Install a New Faucet Fixture 

If you shop for a faucet with the same specs as your existing one, you can easily swap it out without having to replace your sink. You’ll be amazed at the difference a new faucet will make- in both appearance and function!
