Spruce Up Your Middleton, WI, Kitchen without Remodeling
Ready for a change but not quite ready for a full-scale kitchen remodeling project? We totally get it. Even on the low end, the average kitchen remodeling project will run you about $15,000. And your kitchen will be out of commission for at least a few weeks. But sometimes you just need to shake things up, so today we’re here with some Quick and Painless ideas for revamping your Middleton, WI, kitchen without a full remodel.
Change Up the Cabinets
A great way to give your kitchen a new look and feel without undertaking a large kitchen remodeling project is to paint or stain your cabinets. A quick coat of whitewash will give you that farmhouse look that’s all over HGTV these days. Or you can even mix things up by painting your lower cabinets a dark color (like black, espresso, or walnut) and keeping the overhead cabinets on the lighter side (taupe, off-white) and preferably something that blends in with the walls. Not only will this create a nice contrast, but lighter-colored cabinets at eye-level will seem to recede into the walls, making your kitchen feel more open and spacious.
If this project sounds too involved, don’t panic. Just change up the doors instead of the entire cabinet. This will require much less time and paint, and the only tool you should need is a screwdriver. Another option is to lose the doors altogether. This can give you that open, spacious feeling, making the cabinets feel more like shelves, and it’s also a great way to showcase your beautiful new dinnerware or your shiny copper pots and pans.
If you decide to keep your cabinet doors, a deceptively simple way to spruce them up is to just replace the handles and pulls. Smaller hardware like this shouldn’t cost a whole lot, and with an ocean of options ranging from antique- and vintage-looking brushed metal pulls in a variety of shapes and colors, to ceramic knobs with all sorts of fun designs, you’ll be sure to find a way to add your own personal touch.
