Mix and match countertops

Not all surfaces have to be the same. Wood countertops are reasonably priced, easy to install and can add a tonne of character. Replace a small standalone prep area or do the whole kitchen.

Use all wall space

Incorporate storage onto your backsplash and walls. Besides pre-made shelves, many retailers sell hooks, racks and rails that will hold all sorts of kitchen gadgets.

Hang ’em high

Pots and pans take up a lot of cabinet space. Hanging cookware on a rack suspended from the ceiling will free up a cabinet or two and it will add more style to your kitchen.

Change out hardware

Replacing cabinet hardware is an inexpensive and easy update. Find knobs and pulls that are the same size as the existing ones so you don’t have to re-drill the cabinets.

New lighting

After you install a new backsplash, countertop or what-have-you, you’ll want to show if off — new lighting can do just that. Add light sources that don’t require electrical work, or install bigger and better fixtures in the same spot.

Paint kitchen cabinets

This project can take the better part of a weekend, but if done right, your kitchen will look brand new and you’ll add value to your home.
