Sometimes simple changes can make a world of difference!
Here are ways you can update your kitchen in 5 easy steps.
New tablecloth and/or placemats
Changing your table setting with gold silverware can definitely change the look of your kitchen. But maybe you don’t have the funds to swap out your old kitchen table for a new one. Getting a new tablecloth, or even placemats, can do the trick. It will give your table an entirely different look, and the good thing is, you can change it up at any time!
With a few tablecloths or a couple sets of placemats, you can give your kitchen an updated look every few days!
From padded seat covers to covers that fit over the entire chair, there are many different kinds of chair covers. We use these ones and have been happy with them. I just throw them in the wash when they get dirty (and you know they will, because…kids!). They’re definitely family-friendly, we have been using ours for probably 5 years now and they’re still holding up great.
You can learn more about the chair covers we use at our house here.
Inspirational Wall Hangings and Pictures
I don’t know about you but when I’m at the sink doing the dishes, I often look at the walls around the window in front of me. Having inspirational wall hangings and pictures makes me feel a little bit happier, even if I am stuck in the kitchen cleaning up. (Truth be told, I don’t mind dishes too much, especially now that all the kids have started helping out!).
New Canister Set
You wouldn’t think this would make such a big difference but it really does (if you normally have your canister set sitting on your counter like I do). Changing out your canister set will definitely give your kitchen an updated look and is something you can do even on a budget.
My day starts with coffee (and if it doesn’t, God help you all!). I have an area for my coffeemaker and right now keep my coffee cups in a cupboard. What I’d like to do eventually is have more of a Coffee Station that is dedicated to coffee cup storage, my coffeemaker and sugar & creamer. I’m adding this idea to my kitchen remodeling plans now!
If you have a little more moola and a little extra time, consider throwing a new coat of paint on your kitchen walls. It will give your kitchen a new look, and can be done quite affordably if you watch for sales.
