Consider All The Details
Sometimes all any room needs is some new decor. If you don't have art in your kitchen, consider finding a nice piece for an accent wall, or even a sculpture for above the cabinets. It'll add character without a huge price tag or hours of work. For extra seating space and added storage, consider adding a white storage bench along the wall. It's a great place for kids to drop off school bags, coats and more.

Glass door cabinets are a great way to show off your pretty dishes while still keeping them stored. Depending on your existing cabinets, they're easy to recreate if you're handy with power tools. If not, consider finding some that match your current cabinets, only with the glass pane already installed. All it should take is some varnish to match the finish of the other cabinets.
Put On A New Coat Or Two
If you're not too keen on cutting up your cupboard doors just yet, give your cabinets a fresh look with a coat of paint. Painting cabinets is a great way to add color or completely change the look of your kitchen. You can paint them all the same color, or paint the upper cabinets a different color than the lower. Even doing something as little as changing the knobs will give your space a fresh look.
Make A Splash Without Breaking The Bank
A great way to make a statement while adding function to your kitchen is to add a backsplash. You can choose anything from tile to a large glass pane cut to fit your space. It'll help make cleanup easier for greasy messes, and there are so many styles to choose from, you can really make your kitchen look one of a kind. You can even save money by creating your own backsplash with unique materials from around your home, like broken plates and mugs, pennies and more.
Invest In Your Future
Old appliances are less efficient and suck up extra money in energy expenses. If your appliances aren't energy efficient or are even on their last leg, consider replacing them with a new set. January is a great time for discounts, but there may be limited availability. And with all of the holidays, there are sure to be sales on complete sets. A new set of matching appliances will give your kitchen an instant facelift.
Any change, from smaller fixes to major projects, will give your kitchen a new look you'll love. And with there being a variety of ways to update your space, you can find a solution to fit almost any budget and any schedule.
