Kitchen The Same For Years And Ready For A Change? Some Tips To Change It Up

If you have had the same kitchen for many years, such as the cabinets and countertops, you are likely tired of looking at it. If so, you can renovate this room to make it look completely different. Spring is the perfect time to do this as everything is also changing outside. Below are some tips to help you get started on this project.


Purchasing brand new cabinets can get expensive. If it is in your budget, then this will make a big change, however. You can purchase box cabinets at home improvement stores or you can have cabinets custom made for you. There are a variety of woods you can choose from. Some of these wood types include:

  • Oak
  • Cherry
  • Maple
  • Hickory
  • Birch

You can see how these wood types look at the home improvement store to help you decide. Make sure you choose wood that will go well with your flooring.

If you cannot afford new cabinets, you can paint your current cabinets to change the look of them. This can make a big difference in the way your kitchen looks and is something you can do on your own, if you prefer. Once painted, you can change out the hardware to complete the transformation.


Along with new cabinets you should get a new countertop. There are a variety of countertops available some much more expensive than others. Three types you can choose include:

  • Granite: Likely the most expensive countertop you can find but it offers up extreme durability and strength. This is because granite is a natural stone.  You can find granite in a variety of colors and styles.
  • Quartz: Quartz is less expensive than granite because it is made from engineered stone instead of natural stone. Quartz is non-porous so you will not have to worry about things like coffee, tomato, wine, and juice from soaking down into it when spilled. Quartz is also very durable.
  • Laminate: Laminate is popular because it is less expensive than other types. Even though they are less expensive, laminate countertops are durable. They are also available in a wide variety of colors.

You can look at these countertops at a home improvement store to help you make a choice.

If you do not want to make these changes yourself, hire a renovation contractor, like Kavin Construction, to help you. They can do these things as well as many others things to remodel your kitchen.
