Kitchen Updates – A nice change

With the cold weather upon us, creating a warm and inviting kitchen can make a big difference in a home’s overall appeal. With a few well-chosen finish updates, you can shift tone and mood and purchase interest. Fit and finish in a room convey quality – or lack thereof – so it’s important to look around and pay attention to details.

Color and light are the easiest, most cost-efficient elements to add warmth to the kitchen, and you need go no further than the vegetable bin or spice cabinet for inspiration. A scheme of natural greens, yellows, mustards and russets washed with dimmable overhead and under-cabinet lighting can add energy as well as create a level of calm…a kitchen for any mood. If the existing cabinets are sturdy but the finish is sending out a distress signal, a well-executed paint job can turn it around . Mismatched appliances and worn flooring are other leading visual cues, so if the budget permits, replace them.
