Staying up to date with the latest smart home technology can often be overwhelming, but it’s an investment worth splurging on that will save you both time and stress.

2. Update Fixtures with Modern Finishes

Upgrading your kitchen fixtures and/or cabinet hardware with modern finishes has the potential to make a big impact with little investment of time and money. You may opt for matte black, polished chrome, or you may consider mixing various metals for a bold yet sophisticated look. Not only are these finishes guaranteed to look great paired with many color schemes, they will also become the new focal point of your kitchen for a quick and affordable update.

Although you are most likely on the hunt for a faucet that features both a sleek design and modern finish, you should also consider the products quality for a reliable, long-lasting fixture. Thankfully, the Studio S Pull-Down Dual-Spray Kitchen Faucet checks off all of these boxes and more. Featuring a contemporary design and dual-function spray head, this Studio S Faucet adds true distinction to your kitchen design with three modern finish options — Polished Chrome, Stainless Steel, and Matte Black.

3. Paint Or Restain Your Cabinets

A kitchen update that most consider when revamping their space typically involves a cabinetry replacement. However, if you’re looking for a more affordable alternative that still makes a big impact, consider repainting or restaining your cabinets. Simply choose your favorite color (or mix a few together) and paint the doors and drawers. You can also opt for a new stain instead of paint if you’re looking for a more subtle effect.

4. Install New Lighting

Lighting is key in any room, but it can really make a difference in the kitchen. Kitchen lights should be bright enough to illuminate the entire space, while also providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A dimmer switch is essential so you can adjust the light according to what you’re doing — cooking or cleaning up after dinner,  or set it low while you eat to create a relaxing space for yourself and guests. 

TIP: We suggest adding task or pendant lighting above your sink, stove top, or kitchen island so that you have a clear view when washing dishes and prepping food.
