Does your kitchen need a bit of maintenance? No need to spend time hiring someone. Take a look at these 5 easy DIY kitchen projects you can do yourself.
If you are facing a long weekend or maybe a couple of rainy days and want to get a little creative, here are some fun DIY kitchen projects that you can knock out in a flash and still leave your kitchen with an updated look or add a little more pizazz.
Replace a Fixture
Putting in a new faucet is an affordable and quick fix to add shine and function to your kitchen sink area. There are many new sleek design options to fit your lifestyle and budget. With some common household tools and good directions, you will have your new faucet up and running in no time.
Along with your new faucet, you may also want to try your hand at DIY dish detergent. It’s safe, inexpensive and very easy to make.
Try a Peel-and-Stick Backsplash Kit
If your idea of a do-it-yourself kitchen remodeling project doesn’t include grout and sticky cement but you want to add a tile backsplash, then the peel-and-stick version is definitely for you!
Everything is included in your kit, even the tools. There is less mess and it saves so much time. There are color options and styles to fit any decor and in just a few hours your new backsplash can be up as a beautiful addition to your kitchen.
Switch Out the Cabinet Hardware
If you are looking for DIY kitchen ideas on a budget, changing out the cabinet hardware is one of the easiest and least expensive things to try. You will be surprised at how such a small change and make a big impact on the overall look of the space.
Be sure you get the same size knobs and pulls like the ones you have now so there will be no need to re-drill any holes.
Paint The Kitchen Cabinets
This DIY kitchen project may take a little longer than the others, but it can completely change the look of your kitchen area. You do want to make sure you prepare for this job as you want to protect your counters, walls, and floor from paint splashes.
As a hint, it is also a good idea to label your cabinet doors as you remove them so you will know exactly where everything goes when it’s time to put them back on. Make sure you use the right kind of paint for cabinets and invest in good brushes.
If you decide that painting may not quite do the trick for the look you want, there is always the option for cabinet resurfacing.
Add a Herb Garden
This last project will not only make your kitchen look and smell great, but it is also very helpful when you actually use your kitchen. With just a little time you can be on your way to producing oregano, rosemary, mint, sage or thyme. These herbs are easy to grow, maintain and add fresh delicious flavor to your meals.
An indoor herb garden for your kitchen is a great addition for visual and culinary appeal.
Which of These DIY Kitchen Projects Will You Try
It doesn’t take much time or money to try these DIY kitchen projects. In fact, you could probably fit in more than one during a weekend, or choose to do one at a time until soon you have almost a brand new kitchen with added value and style.
