Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, and what better place to reflect that sentiment than inside your home? After all, it’s where you spend a large chunk of your time.

After a few years (or decades, in the worst case scenarios) decor can start to feel a bit dated, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. If you feel a drive to refresh your kitchen decor, but don’t have the time or budget for an entire home makeover, these three project ideas can quickly breathe new life into a kitchen that is stuck in the past.

Change up your color scheme. You don’t always need to gut the entire kitchen and start from scratch. Ask yourself which colors feel more fresh and trendy right now, and how you can bring them into your kitchen. Painting the walls is often the simplest way, but painting the cabinets will take your new look even farther. There’s no big demolition necessary; just grab some paint and basic supplies, and clear your schedule for a weekend. While you’re at it, consider a new backsplash in updated hues.

Swap out your fixtures. New light fixtures or a new sink faucet will modernize a kitchen fast. Consider changing the tone of metal that you’re using, or go for a multi-tonal color scheme for a more eclectic feel. While you’re at it, new cabinet hardware is a snap to install, and changes the room more than you would think.

Install new flooring. Even though it’s down there beneath our feet, flooring changes the look of a room much more than you would think. And with so many affordable options on the market, new kitchen flooring doesn’t have to break the bank.
