Want to do a quick fix for your kitchen? Start by sprucing up your countertop area. Replace that discolored laminate or chipped ceramic tile–along with the sink, faucet and wall tile.

To start this kitchen transformation, assess your cabinet color and style. A little contrast can do wonders for your kitchen design. If the cabinets have a neutral color with a flat front panel, try a bold colored sink or a rough texture on the wall tile for contrast.

Kitchen Countertop Ideas

While granite countertops remain a big hit, look around for other materials.

  • Quartz, which resembles granite but is considered more durable, is made in a wide range of patterns and colors. Try a dark blue or green with light colored cabinets to add some contrast.
  • Concrete sounds industrial, but can be softened by using warm colors and soft textures. This could add a new twist to your kitchen remodeling and lead to interesting combinations with the faucet and wall tile.

Spruce Up the Kitchen Faucet

Your kitchen faucet is a workhorse, so look for a style that also has functionality. Look for a kitchen faucet with a sprayer and a few features to control the water volume. Here’s more on how to select a kitchen faucet.

Add Personality to Your Kitchen Design

As you design the new space, don’t forget to add your own style. It might be randomly placed stainless steel wall tiles within a more traditional Italian marble pattern. A quick fix shouldn’t be boring, after all. Here are some other ways to personalize your kitchen remodeling.

All it takes is a little creativity to add new life to your kitchen design. You’ll be amazed at the results!

    The easiest, cheapest way to make your kitchen look better, is to replace the metal dishes that sit under the burners of your stove top. You can buy them for about $6 a piece and they can make an old stove look like new!
