5 Simple Yet Ingenious DIY Ideas To Update Your Kitchen

Does your kitchen look like the standard boring setup that everyone has? Have you been on the fence about some of the things you can do to spice it up? If so, look no further. This article is for you. In this article, we’re going to take a look at some of the things you yourself can do to spice up your kitchen as well as some steps to take before you conduct any DIY project in your kitchen.

Before you conduct any DIY project in your kitchen, you need to ensure that you have your appliances covered. One of the ways you can do this is to get a home warranty plan. Even though it is similar to a home insurance plan it differs in what it actually covers. While a home insurance plan protects your home from weather/fire-related damage, as well as theft of your belongings, it does not cover appliances that simply stop working. Alternatively, TotalProtect Home Warranty covers appliances and can be best described as giving old appliances a new warranty.

1) Add Unusual Furniture And Accessories

One of the most simple and cost-effective things you can do to spice up your kitchen is to add accessories and furniture that isn’t typically seen in a kitchen. By doing this, not only will it help to spice up the kitchen, it will surprise your visitors and loved ones as well. Utilizing accessories such as standing mirrors, rugs or even a bean bag, will shock your visitors and definitely make your kitchen stand out in their minds for a long time after their visit.

2) Organization

Regardless if you have a small or large kitchen, one of the most essential aspects of having a kitchen is how it functions cohesively. Having handy hooks for various utensils to be placed on display, as well as to allow easy access and installing efficient shelves that hold your spices and various other ingredients, may not seem decorative by themselves. However, by combining them together, it can give your kitchen a professional impressive appearance.

3) Illumination

One of the things that makes a kitchen stand out is its lighting. If you have large windows, be sure to clear anything that may be blocking the sunlight from coming in. If you have a dark kitchen, consider the possibility of adding ceiling pendant lights, countertop lamps, or even string lights. Alternatively, you can consider a color changing lighting system that can be adjusted to suit the occasion such as red for Valentine’s Day, green for St Patrick’s day.

4) Smart Devices

One of the more interesting things you can do to update your kitchen is to add some smart devices. Kitchen based smart gadgets will definitely stand out in the minds of your guests each and every time they visit your house. Here are a few examples to consider:

· Intelligent Frying Pan – This frying pan doubles as a virtual chef which will guide you throughout the cooking process, such as to tell you when to add ingredients, the temperature of the meat, when to flip it, and when it’s finished.

· Smart Coffeemaker – Smart coffee makers feature scheduling options that you can use to program when you want coffee. Many smart coffee machines even allow you to give it instructions from your smartphone so you can brew coffee within 2 minutes of waking up before you get out of bed.

· Smart scales – Smart scales eliminate the need for various measuring containers. By placing a container on the scale, it will give you a reading through your smartphone.

· Smart Meat Thermometers – Many smart thermometers give you the ability to leave it in a meat of your choice, as to which you can check the temperature, from a distance by using your smartphone. In some instances, you can even customize it to give an alarm whenever the meat reaches the desired temperature.

5) Artwork

If the surface area of your kitchen walls enables the opportunity to hang different fixtures, consider various kinds of artwork. This in itself is not common amongst homeowners and will make your kitchen standout. One of the things you can do is to hang up artwork that correlates with the season. By doing this, what you will basically have is a kitchen with an interchangeable theme that you can change to match someone’s birthday or holiday.
