Kitchen renovations cost a lot of money and can be very time consuming, but it’s one of the most important rooms in the house so you want it to look good! We have some great ideas for DIY projects you can tackle over the weekend to give your kitchen a high-end look.
DIY Pots and Pans Rack
If you’re tired of having all of your pots and pans in a muddled mess in a cabinet and having to dig through it to reach the one you want, consider hanging them up on the wall with these easy project! All you need is a 1/2 metal water pipe, 90° elbows, hooks, and some screws and anchors to hang it all up. Then, get the metal pipe cut to the length you need (most home improvement stores can do this for you). All that’s left is to install!
Repaint Your Kitchen Cabinets
This is an easy project to tackle and is a great way to update your kitchen. While you’re at it, replace any outdated hardware in your kitchen with more modern options. You can also spray paint drawer pulls and cabinet handles if you like the shape but not the color.
Install Under-Cabinet Lighting
Whether your kitchen is a little dark, or you just want to give it a custom, luxurious look, under-cabinet lighting is a great way to go. Do it yourself with affordable, plug in options that you can purchase from Home Depot or Lowe’s.
Upgrade Your Eating Area
If you have a chandelier installed above your kitchen area that you aren’t the biggest fan of, you can change it out in just a few minutes to something more your style. You may also choose to refinish your kitchen table yourself if it has seen better days. Check out this herringbone pattern that you can DIY!
Install a New Backsplash
Don’t worry, you no longer have to get fussed with installing ceramic tile. Instead, you can put up easy peel and stick panels that actually look really realistic! As a bonus, they’re much easier to clean than having to scrub traditional grout style backsplashes. Check out these easy peel and stick designs from Home Depot to get started.
Swap Out Your Faucet
Taller faucets give kitchens a more professional look. If you’re swapping out your other hardware for a different color, you may also want to change your faucet to match so your kitchen has a more cohesive look. Most faucets will come with detailed installation instructions so you can do it yourself fairly easily.
