How To DIY Your Kitchen

DIY Your Kitchen

They say the heart of the home is the kitchen.  This is why the kitchen is the most popular DIY project people take on.  If you could make your dream kitchen come true what would you do?



The first step is to decide on what color(s) you will be using.  I’m not just talking walls, but floors, cabinets, and appliances.  This will help in making sure all decisions are based on the chosen scheme.

Money Saving Tip:

Repaint vs. replace.  From countertops to appliances. Get the look you want with the price tag.



How much storage do you need and what look are you going for?  Cabinet space style can vary from standard door design or open shelf.  Sometimes space is limited and you have to make the most of what you got and this requires good organization.


Do you have an island?  Why not add shelves under one side.

Don’t like counter clutter?  Ever hear of a paper towel drawer?

Toe kicks space is more than a design with Toe-kick drawers.

Organize your pantry staples in see-through, pull-out baskets to make it easier to see what you want.

Remember less is more especially when you have a small kitchen.

A backsplash can add a lot of character to your kitchen.  And the choice of styles is endless.  Some common DIY ones consist of Message Boards, Beadboards or Pegboard which gives some storage help.

Tips: this is where you can let your creativity flow.  Add your personality from simple to elaborate.

This is where you tie everything together.  Lighting, knobs, and hardware.  Necessary items that can make a look all on their own.

Tips:  Chalkboard paint is a popular trend right now.  From walls to baskets.  These looks are not just for school.
