The kitchen is generally seen as the heart of your home. Because of that, you want to make sure that your kitchen feels warm and inviting and reflects who you really are. If you are moving into a new house, you may not feel like the kitchen is quite as "you" as you would like it to be. There are several small things that you can do that will change the way your kitchen looks without breaking the bank that will make your kitchen feel more like home.
Change the Backsplash
The backsplash is the wall that is behind the sink. Many times that wall is just plain. However, you can easily change that backsplash and get something that you like better. One thing you can do is to install a tile backsplash. It doesn't have to be all that hard to do. There are mats that you can use that already have a pattern laid out. All you have to do is put some adhesive on the wall and put the mat on the wall. There are all kinds of patterns that you can choose from, so you can find one that works just right for you.
If you don't like the tile look, you can always go with stone. There are artificial stone backsplashes that you can install very easily.
Change the Hardware
If there is a handle, knob, or door pull, you can change it. That includes everything from your drawers to your refrigerator. If you can't find any knobs that work for you or your tastes are just a little more eclectic, you can make your own knobs and door pulls. Doing that will let you do things like have dice door pulls or a ruler as a handle for your cabinet. That will really let you come up with something that will make your kitchen feel like it's somewhere you want to spend a lot of time.
If you love to cook or you just want to have a kitchen that feels like it's truly the heart of your home, you want it to really reflect "you." There are several small things that you can do to help with that. They don't have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of work to do, but they can really make your kitchen look different and make you feel much more comfortable in it.
