Change the Knobs

An easy do it yourself update for your cabinets is to change out the knobs. Kitchen hardware is relatively simple to remove and replace yourself without needed a professional’s help.

You can swap out your single holed knobs for drawer pulls without having to worry about extra holes. While it can take a few steps, you can tackle this project yourself and update your kitchen drawers and cabinets to the hardware you want.

If you really like the kitchen knobs that you have, but want a different color, then consider painting them. You can easily take the knobs off and spray paint them a new color. While your kitchen hardware is relatively small, a change can really make your kitchen pop.

Add a Wine Rack

Homemade DIY projects are all the rage these days, and fit in nicely with your kitchen. For example, building a homemade wine rack is simple and easy. It will add an element of classiness to your kitchen, while improving functionality.

All you’ll need is some spare wood, a few screws, and a cordless saw . If you want, you can finish the wood wine rack with a stain or paint.

Update the Lighting

Another great way you can update your kitchen is to change out your current light fixtures.

Adding LED lighting will not only update the look and feel in your kitchen, but it will allow you to save on electricity. Nowadays, there are a lot of great options that look really rustic and stylish. You’ll be able to improve the ambiance in your kitchen while simultaneously cutting down on the costs.

Before you start looking up an electrician, know that changing out a light fixture is something that you can do yourself without having to shell out for a licensed professional.
