Upgrade Your Kitchen Easily!

1. Clean! We know you’re probably tired of hearing this so many times, but it really is the simplest yet most effective way to change your kitchen for the better. It’s the first step to do before you move on to more bigger-scale renovations. Why? Because, if you’re space is already clean, then maybe you would think that your kitchen is not so bad after all. It was just messy. It is also important to remember that your granite countertops can also become very disorganized due to the daily traffic in your kitchen space, especially in the mornings!

Get started with your spring cleaning: schedule a specific time every other day (or every week) to maintain the cleanliness of your kitchen. If that’s not possible, you could always get a housekeeper or assign your kids to clean up for a reward.

2. Organize! Check every appliance and utensils you have in your cabinets and drawers. If it’s broken, either fix it or throw it away. It doesn’t make sense to put it back in the drawer, right? It’s not like it would magically mend itself if you keep it there for another two weeks. The goal is to make sure that every space is utilized and optimized according to your need. The more you use it everyday, the more it should be more accessible to you.

3. Lighten up! Let the natural rays of the sun brighten up your mornings. It will make your kitchen instantly better. If your space is not anywhere near windows, consider putting strategically-placed lights under your cabinets. This will put a spotlight on your shiny granite countertops and enhance the overall atmosphere of your kitchen counters space. If you really want windows without all the trouble, create an illusion by looking for a realistic picture of a great view and hanging it up!

4. Start a mini herb garden! Think it’s just another thing you have to worry about? There are many herbs nowadays that require minimal supervision. Basil, chives, mint, and rosemary are a few of the many herbs you can grow indoors. Think of all the money you’d save by growing them instead of buying them from the grocery. Who knows, it may turn out you have a special talent in gardening and you can end up planting vegetables and fruits on your own!
