Spring is in the air, and it is time to start reorganizing and refreshing your life. This spring, give your kitchen a makeover, and take some time to finalize some of the projects you have been meaning to complete. If your kitchen needs a new look, here are 7 ways to refresh it this spring.

Change the Wall Colour

One of the simplest ways to make your kitchen look fresh and new is to give it a new coat of paint. If the walls have been the same colour for years, try choosing a completely different colour scheme than the one you already have. Changing the wall colour will not only refresh the paint, but it will also give your kitchen that brand new look.

Install New Hardware


Kitchen cabinets endure daily use, so over time, hardware like drawer handles and cabinet knobs can come loose, or become excessively dirty. Give your kitchen cabinets a fresh new look, and install new hardware. Choosing knobs and handles that match the cabinets and appliances will make the room look newer and more up to date.

Create Your Dream Pantry

Dried goods, canned foods, and cereal can be difficult to store and can make your pantry appear messy and unkempt. To create your dream pantry, start with sorting through every item, and disposing of anything you no longer need. When this task is complete, purchase opaque containers with labels for your dried goods, and baskets for loose items. Taking these steps will make your pantry clean and tidy, making it simple to find what you are looking for.

Upgrade Your Sink and Faucet

As interior design trends change, your kitchen sink and faucet may no longer be in style. Give your kitchen a fresh new look, and invest in a new sink and faucet that coincides with the current trend. Incorporating smart technology, like touch sensitive faucets will also make your kitchen feel more modern, making your daily cooking and cleaning tasks easier.

Swap Your Lighting Fixtures


Over time, your lighting fixtures can become tired, making your kitchen feel darker, and taking away from the fresh new look. This spring, refresh the room and purchase new lighting fixtures that will brighten things up and make it look like a brand new kitchen.

Renew the Contents of your Cabinets

Chipped glasses, scratched plates, and broken mugs take up space in your cabinets, and are a constant source for frustration when setting places at a table. A great way to refresh your kitchen is to renew the contents of your cabinets by purchasing new dish sets, and replacing any items that are worn out. Take advantage of this opportunity, and buy that matching dinnerware. Not only will it allow you to spoil yourself, it will also add some new character to your kitchen.

Do a Deep Cleaning

The kitchen is the room in the house where buildup of dirt is more common over time. As part of your refreshing, take a day to really deep clean everything. Remove items from drawers, cupboards, and the counter, and scrub any cracks and corners. When that task is complete, remove knobs from the stove, and clean in behind them. Where possible, move appliances away from the walls and clean out the spaces behind them. Giving your kitchen a deep cleaning will leave everything shiny, giving the room a fresh, clean, and new look.

Regardless of whether it is cleaning, replacing small items like hardware, or taking on a new paint job, there are many simple ways to refresh your kitchen this Spring. For more ideas on how to refresh your kitchen this Spring, visit the Falconcrest Homes Blog.
