The heat is picking up in Chevy Chase, MD, and it may be time to cool off inside. If you’ve been itching to change up your kitchen, now is your chance – even if you don’t have inexhaustible resources for a huge renovation project. At Benchmark Painting & Carpentry, we’ve come up with five inexpensive home painting projects for your kitchen.
Add an Accent Wall
While changing up the painting of one wall may not sound like a big deal, it will completely alter the way your kitchen feels. Consider painting an accent wall bright red, royal blue, or even charcoal gray; you’ll be surprised at the transformation one single wall can bring.
Paint Trimwork Around Cabinet Door Perimeter
My painters at Benchmark Painting & Carpentry know that a little bit of paint can go a long way, so for a surprising touch in your kitchen, paint the trimwork around the outside perimeter of your cabinet doors. You can make the contrast as subtle or as drastic as you desire. If you have white kitchen cabinets, try painting the trimwork pale yellow – or even navy blue, depending on your home painting color taste.
Brighten Up Your Wall With Frames
o you have an open wall in your kitchen? Brighten up your cooking time by hanging colorful picture frames in an assorted collage. You can simply spray paint old frames for an inexpensive and very simple new look. Fill frames with photos, or leave them empty for a more artistic feel; just make sure they are colors you love to look at!
Paint Kitchen Cabinet Hardware
Many inexperienced home painters forget about something very small: kitchen cabinet hardware. A lot of older homes have dated gold or brass knobs and pulls, and it’s actually very easy to paint them. After painting and re-installing your kitchen hardware, your cabinets will have a whole new look and style.
Incorporate Open Shelving
Open shelving is quickly becoming a popular trend in kitchens. Removing the cabinet door is a great way to display your nice dishes and add a great aesthetic to your kitchen. Plus, the exposed shelving brings a huge incentive for keeping your shelves clean and orderly. Painting the back of the cabinet as well as the cabinet shelves can add some great color – and a fresh new look to your kitchen while spending next to nothing.
