Small Improvements to Modernise Your Kitchen

Small Improvements to Modernise Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home. The family gathers for meals, where they share the news of their days and where they sneak in for a snack after bedtime. Since you are making so many memories and spending so much time in your kitchen, it should be as comfortable and modern as possible to keep up with the times and the ever-changing demands of life and society. Here are a few inexpensive and small changes you can make to your kitchen to modernise it.

Slow-Close Drawers and Cabinets

Installing slow-close drawers and cabinet doors is simple, and you can do it yourself. Don't be fooled by the idea that you need a certain kind of cabinet or you need a special-made door or set up in your kitchen. The reality is your already existing doors, and drawers can become slow-close. The key is in the hinge.

Find a hardware store or go online and order slow-close hinges. The hinges can cost anywhere from $20-$30. You can buy them all at one time, or you can start to replace hinges one by one over some time. For a small price and a little bit of time, you will soon have an updated facet of your kitchen for a low cost.

Change Your Countertops

Over time, food and drink spills, meals are cooked, and ingredients leak onto your benchtops. The best way to give your kitchen that new feel is to install stone benchtops. The reason stone is better is that it is resistant to stains, it is durable and will stand the test of time, it is strong enough to handle heavy benchtop appliances, and it is easy to clean.

Stone benchtops come in various colours, and you can change the entire feel of the kitchen by changing the colour scheme. You can make the room feel more sterile, more streamlined, warmer, or cosier by changing the stone's colour. Your options are all there, from light to dark, and it is an affordable way to upgrade the kitchen without gutting the entire room.

Change Your Cabinet and Drawer Handles and Knobs

Your drawer handles and knobs accent your kitchen, which gives it real character. There are several ways you can spruce up your room and give it some personality by changing your cabinet handles. Getting drawer handles that are shaped like knives or spoons or forks, or all three makes the kitchen look fun yet chic.

Having multicoloured cabinet knobs or different shaped cabinet knobs also adds a bit of uniqueness to the room. Minor adjustments like that are noticed right away by visitors, and it is a great way to show off your home's vibe and your vibe simultaneously.

Retile the Back Walls

Some homes have a beautifully tiled backsplash that accents the room. Other kitchens have gorgeous tiling that gives the room its feel and energy. If you are looking for a new feeling in the kitchen, change the tiling along the walls. You can get brand new colours altogether if you change your colour scheme, or you can use the same colours but with a different pattern.

A minor adjustment like this goes a long way. It's not very expensive to have something retiled, and if you are having a tough time finding a reasonable price, you can always do it yourself and make it a fun project. That will give you total control over how everything looks.

Buy a Wine Fridge

Wine fridges are not expensive, and they are the loveliest accent to your kitchen. They look chic and modern, and nothing looks better than when you offer beer, wine, soda, water, or chilled liquor from a wine fridge. They keep everything super cold, and they free up space in your regular refrigerator.

Wine fridges can be installed underneath the counter if you have the space. They will be out of the way but will make everything look great. If you don't have that kind of room, you can always place it in a place in your kitchen where it can blend in with the decor and not stick out.

By making a few minor adjustments, your kitchen will look like you had it completely redone when all you did was give everything a bit of a makeover.
