by RobertKeith

Do you think that your kitchen needs a major upgrade and improvements?

If you do, then this article will feature 15 DIY projects that you can do to spruce up one of the most used areas in your house. Use one or more of these ideas to give your kitchen a much-needed makeover.

1. Farmhouse Kitchen

Farmhouse kitchens act as a warm space that your whole family can gather to eat a meal, talk, or just hang out. You can paint your kitchen cabinets gray, place wooden beams across your kitchen ceiling, and place home-spun items like chalkboards around the area.

2. Bungalow Kitchens

One great thing that many homeowners like about the bungalow look is the amount of storage they can get from such a limited space. Add bookshelves to the end of the kitchen bar so that you can have a dedicated space for your cookbooks. You can also paint your cabinets white and purchase white appliances to complete the look.

3. Chalkboard Wall Kitchens

If you have young children, a chalkboard wall acts as a great way for them to express their creativity. Plus, the adults can get in on the creative act, too. You can also write your grocery and to-do lists in a place where you will always be able to find them. To get this look for your kitchen, paint your kitchen cabinets white. Then paint your kitchen walls with chalkboard paint. 

4. Gray and Green Kitchens

You don't need to go heavy duty when renovating your kitchen. Sometimes, a new look for your kitchen is at the bottom of a gallon of paint. Gray and green will work well with white cabinets. You can even paint your countertops gray for an extra dash of unique color. 

5. Let There Be Light: Brightly Lit Kitchen

Since you will spend a lot of time in your kitchen, you will want lots of light in that room. Try to purchase kitchen lighting that has an industrial feel so that you can achieve a modern look. White cabinets and industrial lighting can give off the idea of spaciousness. 

6. Tuxedo Kitchens

If you're tired of your white kitchen cabinets, then install wooden cabinets and paint the top white. To heighten this effect, create a white brick backsplash look. You can do this fairly easily. When you're done with the renovation, you'll have a formal yet casual look to your kitchen. 

7. Kitchen Full of Colors

Add color all throughout your kitchen for a fun, vibrant look. You can look for a kitchen island with a wooden top and add plants for a lively feel. If you like colorful kitchenware, look for brightly colored plates that will draw the eyes of your dinner guests. 

8. Statement Tiles

Maybe you don't need to do a $20,000 kitchen renovation. Maybe a new look for your kitchen can get as easy as changing the backsplash. Replacing your kitchen's backsplash can cost as little as $100. Plus, the entire job will only take one weekend out of your life. 

9.Butcher Block Countertop

Butcher block countertops act as a unique way to make your kitchen seem warm and inviting to guests. Add open shelving to give your home more of a farmhouse type of appeal. 

10. Wood Open Shelves

If you have white kitchen cabinets, wood open shelves will add to the effect to give the room a wonderful look. You can easily make these shelves yourself, and you can add and remove them at your convenience. 

11. Yellow Interiors For Your Cabinets

Add some "oomph" to your kitchen by painting your cabinet interiors a bright color such as yellow. This task will work better if your cabinets have glass doors. If you can, paint the cabinet interiors a color that is already prominent in your kitchen. 

12. Navy and Brass Kitchens

This stunning color combination will make your kitchen pop like nothing else. Paint your cabinets navy blue, then add brass handles and pulls that you can easily find at Kitchen & Joinery

13. Reading Nooks

If you're a fan of both cooking and reading, then you might want to add a reading nook near the place where your family eats every day. You can add a nook if you extra space towards the end of your kitchen area. Put in bookshelves where you can place your cookbooks. Use this space to relax with a cup of tea or coffee on a rainy morning. 

14. Black and White Kitchen

Black and white acts as a classic color combination. A black and white kitchen will instantly give your home a modern, elegant look. For a really classy feel, get marble countertops and wood flooring. 

15. Blue and White Pastel Kitchen

All you really need to achieve this look is paint. Paint your top kitchen cabinets white and the bottom ones a light pastel blue. Complete the look with wooden countertops. This renovation will give your kitchen a cozy coastal look and feel.
