Homeowners and realtors everywhere would agree that the very best returns on residential investments will either be found in the bathrooms or kitchen. This should come as no surprise, seeing as the kitchen is the heart of any home and should therefore receive the most attention during remodeling.

But whether you are newly building or simply updating the appearance, the kitchen renovation process can be pretty daunting. You’ll need to carefully consider everything from paint colors, cabinets, and sinks to the kitchen appliances, so everything blends in perfectly. On top of that, the space needs to be elegant yet practical. Remember, other than just the look of the space, you want it to be actually functional and easy to work in. To help make the process a little easier, we have compiled three of the major renovation and painting ideas that are sure to work.

Be specific about your choice of paint and color selection

They say that paint is the spice of any space. And this is even more profound when it comes to the kitchen. If you are wise about your color selection, paint can make the space instantly more lively and pleasant to dwell in. For instance, you can go for the timeless simplistic all-white appeal or keep it cool and relaxed with more neutral colors like black or gray.

You can also use paint to your advantage by setting up accent walls to create some contrast or doing specialty finishes like faux, epoxy, wallpapers, or cabinet glazing. A good place to do this would be behind the splash pad/ stove and over sinks. When doing accent walls, it is always best to go for bright bold colors that will kick up the area. Alternatively, you can go for a tile backsplash in the form of metal tiles or shimmering glass, and it will have the same effect as an accent wall.

Upgrade your cabinets

Often underrated, cabinets are one of the most significant components of a kitchen, and they can either make or break its whole visual appeal. If your cabinets are dated, the whole place will equally feel backward and dated.

The good thing is that you don’t have to completely tear out or replace the cabinets you have; updating them can be as simple as repainting them or adding some detail on the cabinet fixtures like pulls and knobs or doing a molding finishing on them. These little cosmetic accents can do wonders in adding some sophistication to the space at a relatively affordable cost.

Don’t forget your countertops

Another segment you can’t fail to address in your kitchen is the countertops. As it stands, we have tons of modern and stylish materials you can use that will add some elegance to the space. They include concrete, laminate, stainless steel, and quartz.

Out of all of them, quartz has been gaining the most traction of late. It is composed of resins and minerals, which make it look like a natural stone. It is also impermeable like other solid surfaces and highly resistant to getting scratches. Of course, your decision should be based on your personal taste as well as the décor and furniture in the space. For instance, the industrial look of stainless steel and concrete will be perfect if you have a lot of stainless steel appliances around.


Well, that just about sums it up. While other factors like lighting and sink selection also come into play, the above are the most fundamental and will have you on your way to achieving your perfect kitchen design. Also, don’t be afraid to add some personal touches to the space. After all, the aim is to tailor the space to suit your personality and make it feel more like home.
