3 Kitchen Projects for Summer

Summer is here, and it's bringing a bright, fresh new outlook to the world around us, not to mention the homes we live in. We feel better in warm sunny weather, and scientists believe that's because vitamin D naturally contained within sunlight encourages the release of happy hormones. You'll have noticed that you also have more energy, so why not put it to great use by giving your home a fresh new, sunny outlook as well? There's never been a better time to transform your rooms, so here are three kitchen projects to make your home a happy one.

1. Add Beautiful Lighting

Lighting is functional and in a kitchen area especially, it's important that we can see what we're doing, but that doesn't mean that it can't be beautiful as well. Kitchen cabinets and worktops often come with overhead lighting but switching them out for under cabinet LED lighting can have a transformational effect. It not only looks beautiful and eye-catching, especially in the evening or early hours of the morning, but it can also be much more soothing on the eyes than traditional kitchen lighting. If you want to simply add a little more lighting in particular areas, you can even buy LED lights for kitchen use that stick in place, making it the easiest kitchen DIY job of them all.

2. Install New Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen can be a magical place, but you'll find culinary inspiration easier to come by when your surroundings are pleasing on the eye. That's why your kitchen cabinets are so important, and summertime provides you an ideal opportunity to install new cabinets that can give your kitchen a fresh and exciting new look. Expert websites such as cabinetdoorsnmore.com have a vast range to choose from, so you're sure to find something that matches your style and your budget. Whether you prefer traditional solid wood or easy maintenance MDF, adding a new cabinet can give your kitchen a new lease of life.

3. Give The Walls A Makeover

Alongside the cabinets, the main thing that catches your attention in a kitchen is the walls, but they have a lot to put up with through the years from steam to grease and grime. The end result of this is that kitchen walls can age more rapidly than the walls in other areas, but you don't have to put up with that. Painting your walls can instantly improve the appearance of your kitchen as a whole, and if you opt for lighter colors such as shades of white, yellow, cream or light blues, it can also make the room seem brighter and more spacious.

Putting in exciting new kitchen cabinets, adding subtle LED lighting or painting the walls a fresh new color can help turn your old kitchen into a dream kitchen. It can cost less than you may imagine as well, and you may even find that it adds to the value of your property. One thing for sure is that you'll love spending time there, and that can lead to great meals for you and your family.
