Brighten Up Your Kitchen With These Renovation Ideas

by Kevin Smith Author

Renovating a kitchen can bring a whole new feel to your house. As the saying goes, the kitchen is the heart of the home and can set the tone for the style of the rest of the house. When you decide to renovate your kitchen there is usually a goal you are trying to achieve, whether that be a more modern kitchen or a different layout, there are many reasons to decide to renovate. One of the goals people strive to achieve is to create a more light and airy modern inspired kitchen. Some older kitchens tend to favor darker wood stains for cabinets and dark granite for countertops. The overall feel of these older kitchens can be overbearing and make the space feel small even when it is not. Here are some suggestions for a kitchen renovation to make your space feel a little lighter and brighter. 

 Cabinets 

Start with changing out your dark cabinets for a lighter color. This can be anything from white to a light grey or even a light raw pine.  Changing out your cabinets for a lighter option will instantly lift the feel of your kitchen.  Cabinets usually take up the most square footage in a kitchen so choosing a light-colored option will instantly brighten up your space. 

 Counters 

Many older kitchens have either black or a brown and black speckled granite as the countertop. While this choice of the countertop may have blended nicely with some dark stained cabinets, the overall dark tones can make your kitchen feel dim and small.  White quartz countertops in Marietta will brighten up your kitchen. There are many lighter colored options for quartz countertops with many varieties of white and gray that will bring that brightness to your kitchen. 

 Lighting 

There is no better way to brighten up your kitchen space than with lighting.  Lighting can become a central feature to your kitchen if used properly. When renovating your kitchen consider installing under cabinet lighting to really brighten things up.  You can also install some pendant lights over your island if you have one. Also, consider installing some extra can lights in the ceiling if you feel the space was lacking in lighting previously. 

 With just a few simple changes you can change your kitchen from dark and drab to light and airy. White quartz countertops in Marietta will instantly brighten your kitchen, change-up the color of your cabinets and install some new lighting and you will have a kitchen that you will never want to leave.
