1. Open Up and UpdateOpt for open shelves instead of upper cabinets to provide display space and make a small kitchen feel larger. Install shelves at standard upper-cabinet height — the lower shelf is 18 inches above the counter. Build your own with our kitchen wall shelf project. 2. Upgrade Your AppliancesThe most popular kitchen update is installing new energy-efficient appliances, such as a dual-fuel range with convection double ovens, a high-tech range hood, an ENERGY STAR-certified refrigerator, and a water-saving paneled dishwasher. Shop Appliances 3. Update HardwareAdd more personality with new cabinet hardware. Create a cohesive look with a mix of knobs and pulls in the same style family. Shop Cabinet Hardware 4. Don’t Ignore CeilingsAdd texture and a pop of color. Ceiling tiles made to mimic the look of antique tin tiles click together like laminate floor surfaces and can be painted to fit any color scheme. Shop Ceilings 5. Make a SplashClassic white subway tile with a beveled edge is an inexpensive, yet high-impact, backsplash material. Use a herringbone pattern to add interest and movement to walls. Shop Tile 6. Counter FitGet the look and texture of stone with all the benefits of laminate. This travertine silver laminate with a bullnose edge looks like the real deal for a fraction of the price. Shop Countertops 7. Paint ItFreshen up walls, cabinets, and ceilings with a coat of Valspar Signature paint. It’s one of the quickest, most budget-friendly updates. Colors shown are Play Bill (#ar1022) for the cabinets and Crystal Sea (#5004-7B) for the ceiling. Shop Paint 8. So QuietInstall soft-close hinges and glides — and say goodbye to slamming doors and drawers. Shop Cabinet Hardware 9. Lighten It UpBrighten your room with an allen + roth (TM) ceiling light, mini pendants, and undercabinet lighting. Add control with dimmers. Shop Lighting 10. Customize ItLaminate shelves mimic the look of the countertops. (Ask your countertop installer to make the shelves.) Add stylish metal brackets for support and to repeat the metallic tones found in the appliances, hardware, and faucet. 11. Rethink the SinkThis Kohler top-mount, apron-front sink is perfect for remodels — it requires only a rough cut to existing standard cabinetry, and can be paired with most countertop materials. Top it off with a Delta high-arc faucet featuring a hidden pull-down sprayer. Shop Sinks 12. Build-In StorageAdd floor-to-ceiling custom wine storage to the side of a standard-depth fridge for a built-in look. 13. Bake It PrettierThe key to the perfect pantry is simple — keep it tidy and organized. Shop Kitchen Organization 14. Spice Things UpMake every inch of storage count with door-mounted shelves. They make use of wasted space and are perfect for keeping spices close at hand. Shop Kitchen Organization 15. Get the messagePaint a chalkboard on the inside on the inside of the pantry door for creative words or a handy place to display notes or recipes. Mask off a section with painter’s tape, then fill in with a coat of chalkboard paint. Shop Chalkboard Paint 16. Read the LabelMake it easy to find cooking staples. Just add labels to canisters and jars using our free downloadable label sets you can print on your own adhesive-back labels. 17. On the RackCreate more storage where you need it and make the contents of your pantry more visible with wire shelves perfect for small cans and jars. Shop Kitchen Organization 18. Make a Nook CozySoften the look of a window seat built from standard upper cabinets by adding a natural roll-up shade and pretty pillows. Shop Cabinets 19. Focus on FlooringTake a look at these stunning faux-bois floors. Get the appearance of hardwood and the durability of tile with natural timber, cinnamon-glazed porcelain floor tile. Shop Flooring 20.
