If you long to host the next family gathering but your kitchen is too small, outdated, or unattractive to entertain a crowd, there’s hope! Here are some quick, easy, and inexpensive solutions from Callen Construction that can help you address common woes in an outdated kitchen.
A Lackluster Backsplash
If your backsplash leaves much to be desired, whether due to a boring design, lackluster colors, or cracked and missing tiles, it can quickly be covered up with a peel-and-stick backsplash. This type of backsplash can be applied directly over your existing tile, and you have the added advantage of not having to deal with messy mortar and grout. Another simple fix is to strategically position an appliance or decorative item in front of the offending area.
Outdated Kitchen Cabinets
No matter how old and outdated your cabinets, a fresh coat of paint will give them new life. Paint is affordable, available in every color under the rainbow, and can cover up a variety of imperfections, including stains. It does take quite a bit of prep work, however, if you want a paint job to look like it was done by a professional. If you don’t have time for the required cleaning, sanding and priming, replacing old hardware with a more modern style can really make a difference.
Nobody wants to deal with kitchen remodeling in the middle of the holiday rush, but it may be tempting if you’re sick and tired of scratched-up floors. If you don’t have the time, budget, or inclination to replace your flooring, there is another way. Similar to the previously mentioned solution for a backsplash, a simple way to revamp your floors involves the use of peel-and-stick wood-plank vinyl flooring. As long as everything is structurally sound, this type of vinyl flooring is a great option to give your floors new life.
