3. Switch Out Your Hardware. You will be delighted at what a big difference such a little change can make to a kitchen. If your kitchen cabinets have older knobs that look dated, go down to your local hardware store and find some that are more modern, or have a timeless classic look.

4. Unclutter the Knick Knacks. Kitchens are the number one space in the home that collect clutter the fastest. We tend to keep random items in a junk drawer, clutter our counters with appliances, and use our kitchen counters as catch-alls for our mail, keys, and other belongings. We often use our refrigerators to showcase our utility bills and other random items. By clearing off your surface spaces, your kitchen will feel fresh, open, and clean. Uncluttering your home in general is a great way to clear your mind as well!

5. Reduce Noise. And by noise, I don’t mean sound. If your tile backsplash currently is multi-colored or has a busy pattern, this can create a sense of visual chaos to your space. Replace your kitchen’s patterned surfaces with simple, neutral lines and your space will appear larger and cleaner.
