Upgrade Your Kitchen


Whether you plan to sell your home soon, or you just want to update it for your own enjoyment, the kitchen is one room that can definitely make a big impact. No matter what type of changes you plan on implementing, you’re probably going to need to haul larger materials during this project, which means that you need to invest in the side-mounting lumber hauler from SidekicK VSC. In today’s post, we’ll take a look at some of the changes that you can make in your kitchen if your budget isn’t as large as it needs to be for a full-scale remodel. Make sure to grab the ideas you need and then browse our online store for the best lumber hauler available!

Update Hardware

The hardware in your kitchen may be small, but they can make a big visual impact when you change exchange them for more modern fixtures. Brass adds a nice, warm appeal to any kitchen, while stainless steel is also a classic look. It is very easy and cheap to purchase the hardware that you need for this project. It will take some time to change out the pieces, but when you are done, you will be amazed at the way that your kitchen will be transformed! Little updates like this can make a big difference.

Paint Your Cabinets

Cabinets are one of the most popular changes to make in a kitchen, but they are also one of the biggest expenses. A more affordable way to update your kitchen is to paint your cabinets. Doing this allows you to alter the appearance of your kitchen without paying a lot of money for all new cabinetry. Depending on your kitchen, you may need just one to two cans of paint for all of the cabinets. Determine whether you want a more dramatic look with black paint or a cooler, more subtle approach with a matte gray color.

Add Under Cabinet Lighting

If you don’t have lighting under your cabinets, then you will be amazed at how much this small addition can dramatically alter the appearance and functionality of your kitchen. Not only will it brighten up the overall kitchen area, but it will also make it much easier to see what you’re doing as you prepare dinner and other meals on the countertops. If the idea of installing extra lighting fixtures and wiring doesn’t appeal to you, then be sure to look for battery-operated lighting that can easily be attached to the bottom of the cabinets using sticky strips.

Style Your Breakfast Nook

If you have a breakfast nook off of your kitchen, then be sure to include that in your kitchen remodel. It is very easy to style this area and add a few eye-catching details that are very affordable. Consider adding in some throw pillows for extra comfort and visual appeal. Place an  arrangement of flowers or unique artwork in the middle of the table to make this nook a unique area for relaxing and enjoying a cup of coffee or tea in the morning. If you don’t have a green thumb, then purchase an arrangement of silk flowers instead.

Add or Change Window Treatments

Don’t underestimate the importance of window treatments for your kitchen. Whether you want privacy or just an attractive way to frame the window, there are plenty of available options at your local home improvement store. If you can’t find what you like in-store, then they will be happy to help you order it in their online store. When purchasing window treatments, don’t forget to check that you have the right hardware for hanging it. Not all window treatments are hung the same way, and you want to avoid having to run back and forth to the store!

At SidekicK VSC, we hope that you enjoy updating and upgrading your home as much as we do. Trips to the home improvement store are one of our favorite things to do, which is why we created our side-mounting lumber hauler. While many items will fit in the trunk of your vehicle, there are plenty of other pieces that are too long or wide to fit. If you need to purchase these types of items for your home improvement project, then make sure you have our lumber hauler handy to help you safely transport these items to your home.
