Snap That Photo

First, snap a photo of your current kitchen and then mark it up with things you love and things you don’t love. If you start with counter-tops I can assure you that you will be ripping out and changing and that becomes renovating.  Look for simple things like, hardware on the cabinets, paper towel holders, towels, and appliances.  Let’s break these down step-by-step.

One of the easiest changes you can make that creates a large eye-pleasing effect is changing up the hardware on your cabinetry.  I spent a few hundred dollars on new cabinetry knobs and the DIY process was easy and manageable within hours.

Simply removing old appliances can make a bold statement. Older appliances are not efficient so get rid of them. You can save hundreds to thousands of dollars when you change out your refrigerator, stove, microwave, oven, and dishwasher.

How Do I Get The Look? 

Consider the GE Major Appliances with a Premium Finish available at Best Buy. Did you know that GE is the leader in offering premium finish options? Why does this matter? You can actually create a really unique kitchen package that will reflect your style and needs.

Defining Black Stainless 

Black Stainless is a bolder looking stainless steel. It offers a glossy look, combined with a bold black hue and also a contemporary metal appearance of stainless steel. Truly a winning duo in both bold and sophisticated. The best part of the black stainless is that it wipes clean and stays free of smudges. The personality it exudes is awesomeness.  Be prepared to be ‘ah-mazed’!

Black Stainless Is Bold And Sophisticated. 

Black Stainless Steel finish has caught my eye and can totally change your kitchen style. Imagine going from those lame white and bone finishes to the sleek color of Black Stainless Steel on your refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. Then think about how old your other appliances were and how much more efficient new appliances are.

Consider your change a way to both save money and make a change in your kitchen’s look. Count me in! The Black Stainless Finish is high-gloss and fingerprint resistant.

Just for a minute think about ‘fingerprint-resistant’.  What does that mean to you? It means that you don’t have to keep following fingerprints around the kitchen and cleaning them from all those little ones in the house! (a blessing in disguise right?)

We have been in our house for 8+ years and I am ready to change things up.  I don’t like dated functionality so it’s onward and upward, and it’s time to refresh technology and gain some statement appliances.

Don’t Forget The Greenery & Drying Towels

If you have assessed your kitchen, remember, you don’t have to paint to add-in color, in fact, add a few plants of different dimensions to the room and suddenly you have created a wonderful GREEN accent without touching a paint can or paint brush!

One of the most overlooked things in a kitchen are your drying towels and clothes.  Don’t just grab white, express yourself with a few color combinations.  Use your cabinetry color and hardware for color inspiration.  These towels are often on display so choose wisely.

Look for wonderfully different drying towels as they are inexpensive pieces to change out.  Keep the ones with stains as rags for other areas of your home and display your new favorites.  Add in a few potholders and suddenly color abounds in the kitchen.

Artwork

The artwork is so easy to find, simple to hang and really transforms an area that had no statement to one that makes a statement.  You can use artwork to help you theme a room. Use kitchen tools to make a statement. They are artwork. Get the kitchen tools out of the drawers and use them more.
