mini kitchen refresh


Have you ever walked into your kitchen and realized you style in there? Well, we are here to help. And it's oh so easy. See our simple tips to have a more cohesive kitchen.

Matching Accessories
The easiest and least expensive thing to do is pick up some matching accessories. Mixing bowls, towels, cooking utensils...all with the same color scheme and look will help immensely. And the best part—you don't have to spend an arm and a leg. Just make a trip to Home Goods or Target, where you can find accessories to help your kitchen feel inspired while keeping your wallet safe. 

New Hardware
This is a super easy, low skill level job. If you have cabinets with knobs, swap them out for something more current. If you have cabinets with no knobs, you can invest in this handy tool to do the job for you. Goodbye old brass, hello Beautiful!

Updated Small Appliances
Nothing make yours kitchen looks as dated as a clunky old appliance. I am talking coffee maker, toaster, electric kettle here, not the big 3 (fridge, range, dishwasher). Getting a nice sleek brushed steel or matte black appliance can really take your kitchen up a notch! Or if you are feeling brave, go for a big pop of color that ties to your other accessories.

Looking for a quick and relatively inexpensive way to refresh a space? Get the biggest bang for your buck with paint! We wanted to share our three all-time favorite paint colors that we find ourselves using over and over again—for listings and for our own homes. These colors are amazing in every room of the house. These are all Benjamin Moore colors, but most any paint store has the codes and can mix for you.

Revere Pewter
Benjamin Moore
We love this shade paired with off-white or almond trim to help the trim pop instead of looking bland. 

Edgecomb Grey
Benjamin Moore
Bring on the greige! This color is much lighter and brighter on walls than you would think, one of the best chameleon colors for throughout the house.

Grey Owl
We usually do a 50% strength for this paint color, which brightens up the nice blue-green undertones. It’s perfect for houses that have aged hardwoods that are a little on the orange side.
