Refresh a Kitchen for Spring is a great way to get your kitchen feeling like a new year. With just a few simple adjustments, you can make a dramatic change in the look and feel of your kitchen. You can start with easy quick fixes such as using eco-friendly cleaners, changing out cabinet hardware for spring or painting the cabinets or walls a different color.

Benefits of Refresh a Kitchen for Spring

1. New Sunshine in Your Kitchen

This is a great time of year to change out your light bulbs with energy saving bulbs. What you choose to do depends on your style of kitchen and how much time you have. If you can replace all the light bulbs, that would be the best solution for energy efficiency.

2. Fresh Color for the Kitchen

If you take a look around your kitchen, I bet you will find something that could use a fresh new paint job or a couple of coats of paint on the walls and cabinets. This is a great way to get some additional natural light into an area and also add some color to your home at the same time! If it’s possible, consider painting or stenciling wallpaper in areas where space allows as well.

3. Something New for the Kitchen Island

Consider something new for your kitchen island to help make it more functional and also a bit brighter. A new kitchen island is a great way to have a splash of color in your current kitchen, but don’t just stop there, add some accessories that can help you transition from spring into summer days with an ice cream cone holder or bright colored serving bowls. Of course you can always add some kitchen art like this one here…

4. New Appliances

You might be surprised what new appliances and updated technology can do for your kitchen aesthetic, not to mention functionality. For example, updating to a new stove, oven or microwave can have the help make cooking and food prep a breeze.

5. Making Better Use of Space

A good way to clean out the clutter in your kitchen is to make better use of open space by stacking dishes or even using pressure cookers (these are a great ‘on demand’ appliance for quick meals). You can even move items around on shelves to create more spaces for larger items. You might want to consider getting rid of some those spices you thought you would use this spring season but still have them sitting on the shelves waiting for something that never comes.
