Kitchen Updates

One of the best ways to increase the value and livability of your home is through minor updates. A few simple projects can make a big difference in creating new living space, keeping utility costs low, or making life more convenient for you and your family!

Here are five significant kitchen updates that will help turn around any old house into an awesome new one:

  • Install a ceiling fan that will cool your house down and help to circulate the air. It gives you an easier time in the kitchen because you don't have to keep opening windows or turning on exhaust fans constantly. Plus, they save energy!

  • Add counter space with a breakfast bar - This is a great way to create a new work zone for yourself and free up space in the kitchen. Plus, it's perfect if you're short on storage rooms since they don't take much more room than an average dining table would!

  • Replace your appliances -This one may seem like an arduous or expensive task, but there are plenty of affordable devices in the market that will make your kitchen easier to use and more aesthetically pleasing

  • Update your flooring or add a rug - A new kitchen floor can be a great way to create some much-needed warmth and coziness in your home. It also makes for easy cleanup!

  • Replace the window coverings with curtains or shades -In addition to adding style, it will help you save money on heating and cooling bills. You'll have more control of the natural light coming in and save money on those costly utility bills

Change Up Your Windows

Always a good idea, we love our updated windows! Windows are one of the essential features in your home. They let in natural light and fresh air, as well as keep you warm during cold months or cool when it's hot outside. You can change up the look of your windows with a few simple changes that don't require any major renovations.

You'll want to start by removing the old window coverings and installing new ones that match your style. You could also paint them a different color, use wood clad window replacement to give it a new look, or get shutters for added privacy if you live in an urban apartment building with large windows that face out to other buildings across the street.

Remodel Your Outdoor Space

Remodeling your outdoor space can be a great way to increase the value of your home and enjoy the outdoors. You can do this by adding a deck, patio or additional outdoor living space. You're also increasing your home's value, and you will be proud to show off your new outdoor design to friends and family who come over.

Focusing on landscaping first and foremost is key to an outdoor space, if you don't have the right layout or plans, its a make or break deal.

You can also add an outdoor kitchen, which is a great way to spend time with your family and friends cooking together. Plus, these will be the best burgers you have ever had! And don't forget about investing in some patio furniture so that you'll always want to hang out outside when it's not too hot or cold. You may even want to consider adding a fire pit so that you can enjoy cozy nights with your friends. 

By simply adding the right outdoor furnishings and decor, it already makes a world of difference in an outdoor living space.

Create a Home Office

Creating a home office can be daunting when you are not sure where to start. However, it doesn't have to be an expensive project, and with a few simple steps, you can transform your spare room into the perfect place for working from home.

Start by lining up all the desk essentials: computer, printer, phone charger, and others, then identify where these will go in your new office space. Next, use leftover paint or wallpaper to create a focal wall. Your new office needs to be bright and vibrant, so pick the colors that make you feel most energized before painting your accent wall or applying wallpaper.

Lastly, it's essential to eliminate any clutter in your old desk space because this will help you switch your mindset from home to work.

Repainting Your Walls

You don't need to paint your entire home. It's effortless and inexpensive to tackle one room at a time or even specific spaces of the same color that are looking dated. If you want help with this project, it is best to hire professionals as painting can be tricky for amateurs. 

And don't be afraid to paint your floors either, always adding your own personal touch is not necessarily a deal breaker.


It's easy to get overwhelmed when you're trying to figure out what you need to do. But the good news is that tackling one small item can make a big difference in making your home feel more comfortable, inviting, and functional. 

So the next time you find yourself feeling like there are too many items on your list of things to do, take a deep breath and start with these five projects.
