It’s no surprise that kitchen redesigns are some of the most common projects undertaken by homeowners. In the past few decades, the kitchen has come to function not only as a space for cooking and meal prep, but as a social center for the home. While a gut renovation is an exciting challenge to take on, it’s no small feat. But fear not: Whether you’re a renter, on a tight budget, or just not willing to commit to a complete overhaul, there are plenty of easier ways to upgrade your kitchen using far less time, money, and energy. If you have a free weekend or afternoon, make one (or several) of these updates to give your kitchen a fresh new look.
