Many people have been doing small kitchen remodels this year. If you haven’t jumped on the renovation train yet, now might be the right time. We outlined some kitchen upgrades that you can make before the holiday season rolls around.
Replace an old appliance
Sometimes the eyesore in your kitchen is an old, run-down appliance. Or maybe it’s more of a hassle; a burner that is broken, a dishwasher that hardly cleans, etc. Now is the time to finally replace that appliance with a new model. Consumer Reports
outlined the best appliances of 2020 based on reliability. However, no matter how reliable you think an appliance is, you should still protect it with an extended warranty.
Where to get an appliance warranty
Upsie offers incredibly reliable appliance warranties
for far lower prices than the warranties sold at the store. They have two and four year plans for appliances such as refrigerators
, dishwashers, ranges and more. Coverage extends the manufacturer warranty and begins one year after your appliance purchase date, when the manufacturer warranty typically ends.
Furthermore, you can purchase a plan up to 11 months after purchasing the appliance. Check out Upsie’s appliance warranty coverage
Redo your kitchen backsplash
A good kitchen backsplash
can transform your kitchen for not a lot of money. Home Depot
has a great selection to choose from. Try a white backsplash to brighten up your kitchen or a bright color to add some personality to it.
Paint your cabinets
Another way to upgrade your kitchen is to paint your cabinets
. You can hire someone to do it or save thousands of dollars by doing it yourself. It’s also the one thing you can do that will dramatically change the look of your kitchen. Your family will be very impressed by the new look and feel when they come over for the holidays.
Do a deep kitchen clean
Sometimes you don’t need a big kitchen remodel or renovation to spiff it up. A good cleaning
can work wonders. Throw away all old cards, get rid of the clutter, organize your pantry and clean your appliances. It’s surprisingly easy to clean stainless steel appliances, and makes a kitchen look polished.
Replace one key feature
One outdated item in a kitchen can make the whole thing look tired. A scratched up sink suggests that the place is unkempt, old knobs make the cabinets look aged and discolored flooring can make any room look ancient. Picking one of these items to update might be all the refresh that your kitchen needs.
