Manageable Upgrades for Your Kitchen

Upgrading a kitchen is a dream come true. However, not every person has the time or budget to remodel their kitchen entirely.  For those of you who are searching for upgrades that will make your kitchen feel like new, but won’t break the bank or take more than a day, these 4 manageable kitchen upgrades are for you.


If you want to take your cabinets from drab to fab rather quickly, one way to do so is by adding new cabinet hardware.  Hardware can be purchased in a variety of styles at your local hardware or home improvement store and is relatively inexpensive. You can easily remove and replace the hardware on your kitchen cabinets and drawers within a couple of hours.


Light fixtures quickly become outdated, and once they become outdated they can be an eyesore. Therefore, just by replacing light fixtures, you can easily create an entirely new look in your kitchen.  If you are interested in replacing your light fixtures, make note that it is important to pay attention to electrical safety. And, if you aren’t comfortable working around electricity, a trusted professional should help.


One of the hottest trends right now in kitchen design is open shelving. Used to display cherished dinnerware or statement pieces, open shelving creates a unique look in any kitchen. To create simple, quick open shelving in your kitchen, simply remove cabinet doors from a few of your cabinets, fill in the holes where the doors one hung, and you are finished!


Everyone loves coffee, which means everyone loves a coffee bar! Designing a coffee bar for your kitchen is easy.  All you need is open counter space or an open corner to install shelving or an extra cabinet. Then, add your coffee and coffee accessories and you are finished!

Now that you have a few ideas on how to easily upgrade your kitchen, it’s time to get to work.  Most of these projects are DIYs. But, if you need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact your friends at Beltway Builders for their expertise.
