Cabinet Hardware

Changing the look of the cabinet hardware in your kitchen is a nice, gentle touch to switch up the overall appearance. It may seem like a small adjustment, but I promise you, once you’ve changed the knobs on each cabinet to a different style or design then step back a couple paces, you’ll see a major difference.

Pull-Down Faucet

When you’re in your kitchen, you want to be comfortable, right? Just like any other room in your household, you’d like the functionality to be bar-none, and everything should be super simple. Well, installing a pull-down faucet covers that entire scope. Not only does it look good, but it feels good knowing that the dreaded chore of doing dishes can simplified by a fixture.

Technology, by definition of usage, is a means of making life easier. Installing a pull-down faucet in your kitchen can ease your daily life, upgrading your kitchen not only be appearance, but in function, as well.

Kitchen Chalkboard

One of my favorite remodeling ideas, and this one is actually becoming quite popular as a kitchen trend. A bit quirky, yes.

But think of all the possibilities – no more forgetting stuff at the grocery store and then there’s always the sweet message or two. Pretty neat!

Shelf Upgrades

You also have some options when it comes to your shelving units. I’ll tell you, my most favorite that I’ve installed is definitely the Pullout w/ Cushion close. It’s soft, gentle, and you don’t have to worry about damaging your cabinets if you accidentally close it, too quickly. Perfect for families and such.

Drawer Box

These kitchen upgrades have to deal with the material you use for your drawers. You may seem puzzled, asking yourself why this would matter, but think about it for a second: Your drawers contain and hold a multitude of things in your kitchen — cooking utensils, silverware, measuring items, etc.

So, the stronger the material, the higher the price. You’re paying for the stability. Any time you’re getting something made from solid wood, you can expect to pay a pretty penny.

Drawer Glides

These are the mechanisms that allow your drawer to open or close. I’m laughing as I type this because I can understand why some would think this is a tedious improvement, but if it makes life easier, it’s an upgrade. A life hack, if you will. As far as price, the two options are actually around the same.

There ya have it, friends. A few fun, yet functional kitchen upgrades for you to tackle this spring! These are all inexpensive additions that you can install to not only improve your cooking space, but leaves a fresh, new feeling every time you walk into your kitchen.
