5 Ways To Update Your New Jersey Kitchen This Spring

Is your kitchen one of the most used spots in your home? Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, the heavy use starts to show after a while.

Renovating your kitchen can seem like a daunting task, not to mention expensive!

Ready for the good news?

There are ways to start updating your kitchen (and adding some style!) without breaking the bank.

Focus on the cabinets


Of all of the equipment in your kitchen, cabinets probably receive the most amount of use. Older style cabinets, or cabinets showing a lot of wear and tear affect the feel of your entire atmosphere. Although you can replace your cabinets, repainting them is a quicker, cheaper alternative.

Some of the benefits of repainting your kitchen cabinets include:

  • Fast Process - Replacing your cabinets is a much longer process than painting them
  • More Opportunity to Customize - The options for picking your colors and finishes are endless
  • Cost-Effective - Repainting your cabinets costs a fraction of the cost to replace them
  • Convenience - Painting your cabinets will not disrupt the flow of your home

If your kitchen cabinets need a refresher, explore the affordable option to repaint instead of replace!

Define your island

A popular current trend is to paint your island with an accent color. This adds a fun change to the monotony of a single colored cabinet scheme, without adding an overwhelming amount of color.

White cabinets have made a strong comeback in recent years, and a color like Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, would make a wonderful focal color for your island.

Two tone kitchen cabinets

While you are choosing custom colors for your cabinet painting, consider two tone cabinets. This adds visual interest and, like the color accented kitchen island, can create a focal point for the space.

Two tone kitchen cabinets can be used to define your space. For instance, a darker color on the top half of your cabinets gives your kitchen a cozy feel. Darker cabinets on the bottom are also a popular choice.

Choose an accent wall

Accent walls are an awesome way to add an exciting pop of color without overwhelming the room. Plus, you can choose an accent color that will unify other rooms in your home.

Feeling creative? An accent wall can be a great way to express your own personal style. Try chalkboard paint for a dramatic, and useful look!

Add a backsplash


Backsplashes are useful, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Older kitchens may already have brick backsplashes, and old brick paints well. Why not choose a fresh color that will add brightness to the space.

There are many style choices for backsplashes. Some are more practical, and some are geared towards adding visual interest. Choose a material that will hold up to heavy use over time, but also fits the feel of your updated kitchen.

Increase your home's value

Not only are these affordable updates that you can make to your home, they also add resale value. Keeping your kitchen up to date and stylish is not only an asset to yourself, it is also an investment for the future.
