4 Kitchen Hacks to Make Your Home Feel Newer and Cleaner

Do you want a kitchen that looks brand new without dropping thousands on a renovation project? There are plenty of cheap (and free) “life-hacks” you can use to make your kitchen look completely updated. Listed below are 4 kitchen hacks.

Give Your Cabinets a Face-Lift

You may not notice it until you examine closely, but crooked cabinet doors that haven’t been cleaned in a while can make your kitchen look very old. Fix this easily by wiping the doors down and tightening the hinges to give them a clean, uniform and like-new look. You can also replace the hardware altogether, including knobs and handles, which would be a very simple and inexpensive update.

Repair or Replace Your Flooring

The floor is often the first thing about your kitchen that people notice, so cracked or stained flooring will immediately make your kitchen less appealing. If you decide to replace your floors, make sure you opt for an easy-to-clean flooring type, such as ceramic tile or vinyl in a neutral color. Neutral colors like white, gray or dark brown add a clean, modern and minimalist look to the kitchen.

Reduce the Clutter

We’re all guilty of using counter tops to store appliances, cookware and even mail, but letting the clutter get out of hand can make your kitchen appear messy and unorganized. The first step in clearing clutter is to throw out what you don’t need. Throw out any old or unwanted food and other items in your pantry that you don’t plan on using. This will free up space for your larger appliances so that they’re stored away until it’s time to use again. Also, make a habit of sorting and throwing out mail on a daily basis so it doesn’t pile up on your counters.

Window Treatments

It’s easy to forget about taking care of our windows, but they’re a big part of completing the look of a space. Window treatments don’t have to cost you a dime either. Just thoroughly clean your windows to maximize the natural light coming into your kitchen and wash your curtains periodically so they don’t become dingy and old-looking. Even if you choose to buy new blinds and curtains, it won’t cost you much.

An “updated” kitchen is well within your grasp and budget if you follow these hacks. The best part is that you can apply these hacks to any room in your house. Maybe you won’t need that $10,000 renovation project after all.
