Improved Lighting

Upgrading your kitchen lighting can make a big difference in your kitchen. Consider hanging pendant lamps, or wall-mounted light fixtures to transform the look of the space, and improve the ambient lighting. You may also want to install lights underneath of the cupboards as task lighting.

Cabinet Knobs

Changing up the hardware in your kitchen is a simple way to upgrade your kitchen. Simply replacing the handles or knobs on your cabinets can bring new life to your cupboards.

A New Faucet

A new, upgraded kitchen faucet and handles can also drastically affect the look of your kitchen. If your sink has seen better days, you may want to consider replacing it at the same time. This will help you to find a faucet and sink that coordinate well.

New Dishes

With a new, updated kitchen –you should have new dishes. Especially if you have an open cabinet concept or display shelf. Choose a dish set that coordinates with your kitchen décor, or you could go with white, or another neutral color to help subdue the look of a bright color scheme.
