Give your kitchen a makeover by incorporating these simple designs

We know what you’re thinking--fixing up the kitchen sounds like an expensive and time-consuming hassle. For most people, the idea of enhancing the kitchen conjures up images of a hollowed-out bank account and out-of-commission cook. 

However, this doesn’t have to be the case. It doesn’t always require a full-blown renovation to add new life to a kitchen. We’re absolutely in love with this year’s hot kitchen design trends--most of which are easy, fast, and inexpensive to carry out. Let’s check out 2019’s trendiest (and most convenient) kitchen designs that are a piece of cake to implement.

Copper Accents

Revamping your kitchen’s style has as much to do with your tools as it does with your fixtures. For an easy and affordable splash of glam, use copper. Copper is fashionable in the high-end culinary market, as its deep shimmer has a timeless beauty and tinge of sophistication. 

From pots and pans to silverware and serveware, copper is the way to go. Don’t hold back from showing off your flare--store your copper tools in a place where they can act as a kitchen display. The eye-catching gleam is sure to add an air of class.

Open Shelving 

This style tip doubles as a functional storage space. Open shelves are the perfect place to display all of your favorite things, from kitchen tools to precious family memorabilia. Open shelving is useful and chic, with the added bonus of being easy to install. 

Experiment with materials that make a statement, such as elegant glass or bold metals. No matter what you choose, you’re going to love this look. 

Pops of Color 

Kitchen appliances can either be an eyesore or an eye catcher. Hone in on the latter by investing in ones that are truly beautiful. White is becoming an outdated color scheme in utilitarian spaces; contemporary trends are taking it back to the cheerful tones and deep hues of retro’s heyday. 

Ditch the stainless steel-on-white look, and switch it up with something more inspiring like mint green, orange, blue, or even black. Everyday appliances like microwaves, toasters, and coffee machines are great places to add this color.

If you love the mood this creates, take it a step further by getting a fridge or stovetop oven in a delicate color. A larger appliance can take everything to a whole new level. 

Butcher Block Countertops 

Not only do butcher block countertops look amazing, but they also hold up well. Butcher block countertops are great replacements for weak linoleum, and the warm wood is easy to maintain. This natural style is a splendid way to enhance an otherwise white kitchen.
