Updating Old Kitchens

A lot of kitchens get stuck in outdated styles from the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s. Homeowners end up leaving them looking outdated instead of remodeling them because of the cost and time it would take to complete the project. However, updating a kitchen doesn’t need to break the bank or take weeks to complete.

There are some simple decorating projects, along with some surface refinishing by Refinish First that can transform a kitchen from being stuck in a previous decade, to a current and stylish space.

In the past, many kitchens had natural wood or dark colored cupboards. This can make the space look small and dark. This can be remedied by painting the cabinets a lighter color. Lighter colors reflect light better, making the room feel more open. If the handles and knobs don’t match the new color, buy and install new ones. There are many unique drawer knobs available that can bring a little flare of style into the kitchen.

Many of the countertops in older kitchens are laminate. Over the years, they become faded and damaged, dating the kitchen even more. Laminate is a surface Refinish First can refinish. If the countertops have become worn out or they just need to be a new color, Refinish First can help. They can create almost any custom color, match an existing color or make it look like a stone accent.

Backsplashes can add color and a fun design element in the kitchen. They don’t have to exist only behind the sink. They can also extend farther along the walls underneath the cabinets. Backsplashes also double as an easy surface to clean if food splatters on it from the sink or stovetop.

By brightening up the room with lighter cupboards and countertops, and adding some fun decorative pieces, the kitchen will no longer be stuck in the past. Contact Refinish First to help bring the kitchen up to date with some new kitchen surfaces.
