Every homeowner should want to upgrade his kitchen every now and then. Replacing new hardware, repainting cabinets, and accessorizing the space to make it livelier and more modern are just some easy ways of revamping the cooking area. Who doesnt love a bright, practical kitchen? Here are some ideas to help you upgrade without having to make a substantial investment.

1.  Include A Table Lamp On A Buffet Or Countertop

Who says table lamps are for meant solely for the living area? Some models are excellent in the kitchen, too. The key to making the cooking area appealing with lamps is to place them in the right spots. First, select a model and a colour. White for instance, is a smart choice. As for the location, you want to put them in visible areas like on the kitchen island. The idea is to make the whole space look feel and look like room, not like a laboratory. Invest in quality lamps that are beautifully decorated, and stay away from those awful desk lamps.

2. Show Off A High End Kitchen Gadget On Your Countertop

We are not talking about purchasing an industrial stove, or a new fridge. Advanced technology is cool, and you can use it to add a touch of innovation into your kitchen. Purchase an automatic, fun-looking citrus juicer and put in someplace where everyone can see it. Add a basket filled with fruits next to it, and your whole kitchen will come to life. The family will surely want to try the gadget, so apart from creating great ambiance you’ll also enjoy a beautifully-decorated cooking spot.

3.  Feature Nice Pots And Pans 

Rather than invest in new kitchen cabinets, why don't you try something different? Hang pots and pans from the ceiling. Purchasing a pot rack is a lot more convenient, not to mention that it is an excellent way of adding style to your cooking spot. If you are an avid cook, showing off your kitchenware is a great way of making the kitchen seem busy-cool, yet not cluttered. Suspended pots and pans are an excellent idea for homeowners with limited space, so if you want free cabinets and a neat kitchen, this idea will work wonders.

4.  Add Old World Style By Utilizing Large Baskets

Including large baskets into the kitchen is a smart, chic way of making your space environmentally-friendly, cool, and welcoming. Use baskets made of bamboo or wicker for example, and fill them with fruits and veggies. This idea is great for kitchens that lack shelves and storing areas. Make sure to keep everything organized, though, and place the baskets in plain sight to add colour and impress guests.

5.  Show You Have A Green Thumb With Fresh Herbs

Planting fresh herbs is probably the cheapest, most interesting way of making your kitchen seem bright, inviting, practical, and modern. Invest in a dozen beautifully-designed pots and buy herb seeds from your local store. The idea is such a great way of saving cash, too, because you can always use the herbs during the cooking process. Plant thyme, basil, chives, rosemary, and mint, and just enjoy the smell!

6.  Use Time Tested Designer Paint On Cabinetry That Looks Rich

Repaint your cabinets and counters. Leave your upper cabinets in their natural wood, and paint the cabinets below.   Use lighter shades to open up your kitchen. Decide what style you are after and work within those colors.  This season it’s all about pastels – mint, lemon and light pink, however beige, off white, gray are classic choices that show great from year to year.

7. Upgrade Your Hardware, And See Your Kitchen In A New Light

Replacing cabinet knobs will completely change the overall appearance of your kitchen. Purchase good quality hardware and pick attractive models. Vintage knobs for example, are absolutely amazing. Theyll instantly make your space seem alluring and visually enticing.

There are endless ways of upgrading a kitchen. Whether you choose to accessorize, repaint or replace items, make sure to assess the space you have available first.

Painted kitchens light up a gloomy space, while new hardware and planted herbs freshen it up to make it feels rejuvenated. Homeowners don’t have to invest huge amounts of cash to revamp their kitchens; they just need to be original, think outside the box, and take risks. Upgrade yours right now and make cooking your newest passion!
