Tips to Update Your Kitchen for The Upcoming Holidays in 2019
The holiday season is almost upon us, which means dinner parties, family, friends, and showing off your home to every John and Jane. If you’re considering updating your home – specifically your kitchen, where most of the entertaining occurs – now is a great time to get started so you’ll feel prepared before the last moment. If you’re not sure where to actually begin the process, here is a great place to gain inspiration and tips to update your kitchen for the upcoming holiday season.
Upgrade your faucets
If your kitchen needs a small facelift, but you’re not up for major construction, upgrading your faucets and matching hardware (like knobs and pulls) is a great place to start. They can often be replaced yourself, but a professional job won’t break the bank either. This is one minor move that can make a big impact on the aesthetic of your entertaining space, as well as offer you a functional positive change to be excited about as well.
Change out that lighting, or add more
Lighting makes a dramatic impact in any home, and there are so many ways to freshen it up. If you need to start making the first steps on a big kitchen project, you can’t go wrong with new light fixtures. Or, if you feel your space just needs a small ‘pick me up’, you can add in additional wall or table pieces to create the effect of layered lighting. Finally, another small update that can go along way is the addition of under-cabinet lighting. By implementing some or all of these lighting options, you can gain a lot more control over the ambiance of your entertaining space.
New accent pieces
If you’re short on time, but big on inspiration, adding a new accent piece can be a great place to start. Simply changing out the backsplash can make a big impact in your kitchen, or adding an accent wall. Reclaimed wood is very in right now, and will update anyone’s space in a hurry, and it can be added to a wall or even used to make a small eating areas for kiddos. If you’re looking for something on the simpler side, even a fresh coat of paint in a new color can really customize a space to meet your current vision.
New counters or cabinets
This may not be the smallest project, but if you have the time and means to do an update on your counters or cabinets, this will make one of the biggest impacts on your kitchen and give it a completely new feel. There are so many different materials and styles you can implement, all of which will breathe new life into an old kitchen and give you something to shine about when friends and family come over. If this is something you’re genuinely considering, make sure to pick up the phone and get the process started sooner than later. Our designers tend to book up quickly before the holidays.
