Let’s talk about something you don’t hear as often in terms of kitchens…facelifts.
That’s right! When IS the last time you took a look at your kitchen and sighed…it’s got great bones but hey, it could use a little pick-me-up here and there! Maybe a few spots in disrepair have popped up with age? This is only natural, of course, but sometimes you just have to make a few adjustments to keep your space living up to its underlying purpose: your return on enjoyment.
For Signature Home Services, kitchen facelifts are a dream to work on. Just imagine your kitchen. Now, take that image and add in fresh paint, new appliances, maybe even updating that wallpaper that you’ve had a love-hate relationship with for a few years…With key changes and accents, it’s a TOTALLY new space now!
We define kitchen facelifts typically as a redesign of the space without structural changes, without replacing major cabinets, and without anything major like ripping apart a floor or smashing down a wall. This type of project relies on subtle changes that, when combined, create a WOW factor that you’ll be proud to show off.
We’ve got some absolutely DIVINE before and after examples that we’d love to share, so keep reading!
Unforgettable Kitchen #1: Bringing In Some New with the Old and Outdated
In our first kitchen facelift example, we were given a space with a cozy but dated feel. It presented honey oak cabinets with wallpaper and appliances that could really “use a little 21st-century influence.”
So, how did we make small adjustments to take this to a five-star space? First, we painted the cabinets a clean white and installed new counters, and suddenly the ENTIRE space adopted a look to last the ages…We took a new twist on a favorite backsplash trend by adding glass subway tile, too. Easy to clean AND a with timeless look!
We painted the island to compliment the new cabinet color INSTEAD of matching it. Then—prepare yourself for this cabinet hack!—we replaced the hardware on the cabinets to create a brand new look.
Our updated kitchen appliances now include a new double oven, microwave, niche over the cooktop and a new farmhouse style sink WITH an industrial-style faucet to complete the look.
The cherry on top of this kitchen facelift was being able to tie in the kitchen and dining room with a timeless grass cloth wallpaper that will also be staying in-style!
Unforgettable Kitchen #2: Desirable Layout in Need of Some Love
Another one of our FAVORITE kitchen facelifts was done to a space that was perfectly designed for entertaining. All this kitchen needed was a few touch-ups here and there.
For one, we decided to do a little bit of rearranging. This way, we were able to get the optimal use from the kitchen while also better pleasing the eye. We played a game of musical chairs with the stove and refrigerator, something that might seem complicated but with a team like ours was a breeze!
We added in a hood as well and installed a GIANT pull out organizer. This allows the family to keep items out-of-site but stay organized.
For the cabinets, we brightened those babies up…and WOW what a difference!! We paired a fresh coat of paint with new hardware, too, and the cabinets were looking BRAND NEW.
For the counters, we replaced them with a more modern look and added in a THREE DIMENSIONAL backsplash! Classic with a twist is our specialty!
A new kitchen sink and faucet were two other simple switches that really updated the area.
…And finally, our eye-candy of the room was installed. We sprinkled in new lighting over the gorgeous breakfast nook to really complete the feel of the room, and voila!
Unforgettable Kitchen #3: Time to Upgrade
Our final kitchen facelift to share today is from a pair who came to us with a painfully common issue…they weren’t satisfied with the quality of their appliances and felt like their cabinetry was outdated. We got excited immediately! Signature Home Services knew EXACTLY what to do.
We used a brushed granite to really update the kitchen AND complement the existing cabinetry. We then swapped out the cabinetry hardware—a simple trick that always makes a huge difference and has long since been a Signature staple for an inexpensive design update.
We also changed out the backsplash for a more neutral tone and combined the popular subway tile with a tumbled natural marble. Along with a deco strip, the new stainless-steel appliances were perfectly complimented.
Another one of our favorite hacks made its appearance in this facelift when we painted the island a complimentary color and added a different countertop!
We also installed a new steam oven, microwave/oven combo, pro rangetop AND a new, built-in fridge.
Pro tip: one of the most OVERLOOKED kitchen appliances is the hood over the cooktop! It’s functional and makes a statement. We made sure this kitchen facelift did not go without.
