If it’s true what they say, that everything is bigger and better in Texas, should your kitchen really be any exception? If you still love the trend of an all-white kitchen, go for it. It’s in style and provides tons of versatility when it comes to accessorizing and decorating the space. However, you shouldn’t feel boxed in (pun intended) by the same old boring builder-grade kitchen cabinets when there are tons of options available for fresh new look. A quick refresh of the kitchen may be easier (and more affordable) than you realize.
Off with the Doors
Suffering from a closed-off, cramped kitchen? Consider opening the space by converting your cabinetry to open shelving, which makes a strong statement when done correctly. If you’re not sure you want to go fully open when it comes to dish storage, you can always install half-open shelving and half cabinets. This will allow you to take advantage of the open shelves trend and not have to worry about clutter. Also, good news, the open shelving concept works well with both modern and farmhouse kitchens (which are all the rage here in College Station).
The Magic of Paint
Sometimes the solution to a boring kitchen is as simple as a new paintjob. If you are working with decent cabinets and trying to keep renovation costs down, a fresh new coat of paint can be just what you need. Don’t be afraid to mix colors! Neutral colors on lower cabinets pair well with bright and bold upper cabinets.
Simple Changes, Big Results
Just like with any great outfit, accessories can really pull together a look. Your kitchen is no different. A boring block of cabinets can instantly look more high-end with the addition of crown molding. Swapping out basic hardware on cabinets and drawers for fresh, boldly colored or detailed knobs can be an inexpensive upgrade.
