Makeover Your Kitchen in 5 Easy Steps

Bored with your kitchen but not ready to invest in a full kitchen remodel? Trying to redesign your kitchen on a budget and looking for more affordable options? Here are some tips to help you DIY your way to an improved home kitchen.


1. Décor

The quickest way to start changing a room is to start updating the décor. Creating a primitive farmhouse-style kitchen can start with carefully selected jugs, bottles, and faux-vintage accessories. A drab kitchen can come to life with bold pops of color in the form of wall signs or window treatments. Whatever style you're shooting for, come wander our aisles and let you imagination loose.

2. Faucets

Upgrade your sink faucet to one that better suits your taste or the design style you're going for. You don't have to wait until your faucet is leaking, dripping, and making a mess of your counters to replace it. Why not upgrade to Delta Touch20, the faucet you can turn on with a touch? Or brighten up the room with a pull-down faucet in champagne bronze. Change the color or change the material, upgrade the shape or update the hardware. This small change can make all the difference.

3. Fixtures

Take a look at your kitchen drawer pulls and cupboard door knobs, if you have them. What do they say about you? Chances are, not much. But Hartville Hardware has drawer pulls and handles in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and colors. Mix and match simple drawer pulls with a few decoractive knobs, or even combine vintage-looking oil-rubbed bronze pulls with a few antique knobs from a local vintage store.

4. Lighting

See everything in a different light just by changing up your light fixtures. Hartville Hardware is a great place to find kitchen lighting online, and we even have some kitchen lighting tips to help you pick what's best for you. First, make a plan: it's okay to mix and match lighting as long as you have a plan for how it's all going to go together. Next, you to you: don't be afraid to go bold with a geometrical chandelier, a set of minimalist pendants, or an understated mount light. Finally, consider ambient lighting and task-based lighting. LED technology makes it easier to add under-cabinet lighting and new downlights so that kitchens can be better-lit and therefore safer.

5. Peel & Stick Wallpaper

Cover walls, dress up cupboard doors, create a faux backsplash, & more. Putting up peel & stick wallpaper is fast & easy, removing it is even easier. Plus, it doesn't leave a residue, so it's great for renters!
