In most houses, the kitchen can be the heart of the home as it’s where a lot of daily activities happen such as family bonding moments at dinner time and learning new recipes as well as being the place where your guests will spend some time in. With this in mind, it can be overwhelming to keep up with the current trends, instead of remodeling or modernizing your entire kitchen which can be exhausting, you can just change certain parts to update your kitchen.

Update your cabinets
Your kitchen cabinets take up the most part of your kitchen so investing in new ones can make the biggest transformation. Use a Cabinet Company to get a recommendation on which design would suit you more. Once you have decided on what part of your kitchen you use the most such as plates, glasses or wine fridge then you can go from there to how you design them to suit your lifestyle. The order of your cabinets can affect the flow of your kitchen so asking for professional advice can ensure this. You could opt for soft close doors, different shelving heights or a classy handle to ensure that your kitchenware will fit in the cabinets effectively to allow easy access when cooking.
The accessories you have on show can make a big difference to the overall impression of your kitchen. If you are after a sophisticated looking kitchen that looks like you have put some thought into your design then choosing the same patterns or colors for every kitchen accessory such as toasters, microwaves and even items like spatulas and knives. Although it can take some time to change all your accessories, you can switch items as and when they break to your new color style. Another way to update a big part of your kitchen is to modernize your kitchen table. You could either buy a new one in a style that matches your new cabinets or you could restore your old table by painting, sanding or varnishing them to give them a new lease of life.
Switch up your tiles
Your kitchen can be transformed in so many ways by changing the color and size of your tiles. If you want your cabinets to be center stage then opting for neutral tones can be best. You could still make it interesting to look at by placing them in an unusual pattern or choosing larger tiles to make the space look bigger. Otherwise if you want a bright, bold kitchen then you could choose a color that is opposite on the color wheel to compliment one another but will still make a statement.
Hopefully with this guide you will be able to transform your kitchen by changing various accessories and areas to brighten and modernize the overall look for the room. Your guests will be amazed with how much thought you have put into the design without the need to complete a full renovation that could be pricey or take a lot of time.
