Kitchen Accents and Upgrades that Add Pizzazz

Add Glass Fronted Cabinets

If your kitchen needs rehabbing but you don’t have a lot of money to spend, then you need not despair. You can make a few subtle changes and still create a whole new look. One kitchen makeover that you can make, which may cost a little more, but is still worth the effort, is the addition of glass fronted cabinets.

More Efficient Storage

Glass is not only an attractive and trending item, it will also force you to be selective when it comes to dishware and plates. Plus, you’ll be able to stay better organized as you can easily see where everything goes. That way, you can store your plates and dishes with more efficiency.

Double Up on Usage

Speaking of organization, you can make what you store look more fashionable by doubling the day-to-day items that you use. Items such a water pitchers or mixing bowls can be utilized as vases or containers when they aren’t being used for their originally intended purpose.

Paint the Cabinets and Switch Out the Hardware

If you can’t afford to spend extra money for changing out your cabinet doors, then you can always find the solution in painting the cabinets and switching out the hardware. Find some old-fashioned button knobs or elegant pieces made of brass to add to the reinvigorated cabinets.

A Small Enhancement but a Big Improvement

You don’t have to have a lot of money to create a kitchen island either. No need to hire a construction crew for the project. Simply buy a shelf-like trolley made of wire mesh and include a large piece of butcher block on top. This small but noticeable upgrade is a nice addition in a limited sized space.

Add Decorative Canisters on the Countertop

Adding certain containers on the countertop is not only practical, it adds to your kitchen’s appearance as well. Choose light blue canister prints or contemporary white canisters for housing such foodstuffs as pasta or flour. Include trays that match for any condiments.

Appliances and Pots and Pans

Appliances that are colorful are accents that really spice up a kitchen’s look. Select such colors as vivid red or yellow for a mixer to add extra cheer. Another way to enhance your kitchen’s looks is by installing hardware to hang your pots and pans. Not only will you have quick access to your kitchen supplies, it really looks quite fashionable.

Install a Hutch

When it comes to furnishings, a hutch is a nice centerpiece, especially if you want to go with a rustic or shabby chic theme. It’s also a great way to display some of your best crockery, glasses, and plates.
