Top 5 DIY Hacks to add value to your kitchen
1. Expand storage units
Have as many storage units as possible. You can also get some doors off from your cupboards, creating a nice open space with it.
2. Create an island
An island is a freestanding piece of cabinetry that is placed in a kitchen to supplement the countertop space. It comes very handy when you would like to cook with someone, or you have many ingredients to use. It sometimes has a built in sink, therefore it can be very expensive to build. However, if you put a kabinet in the kitchen, that would still extend your countertop space and providing more storage as well.
3. Add an extra layer
Whatever if it comes to the kitchen cabinets the walls or the floor, an extra layer of paint or lacque always gives a new look to your kitchen. IF you have a small kitchen use light colors, since they visually expand tha space.
4. Install a Kitchen Backsplash
Putting up tiles behind the countertop gives you not only a shiny surface but protection as well. Tiles are much easier to clean and they are waterproof as well. Choosing a creative pattern can add some extra style to the kitchen.
5. Add undercabinet lighting
It is a general problem that since the placing of the countertops by the walls, we create shady areas in the kitchen. However, if you add some undercabinet lighting, you can brighten up the whole room, and create a much more pleasant cooking experience as well.
