The kitchen is known as the heart of the home and for good reason. It's where America's favorite past time takes place...eating! So it makes sense to want a kitchen space that's comfortable and appealing. For a lot of renters, making major renovations to their Phoenix rental property kitchen isn't often an option. But what is one supposed to do to when you want to jazz up your kitchen space without making permanent changes? Luckily there are ways to add flavor to your kitchen in some pretty great ways that are easy on the budget and can be done in less than an hour. Here are 5 quick and easy kitchen makeovers for renters that you'll love!
1.) Call on Color: Even though some Phoenix property managers and landlords don't allow paint upgrades, there are still many ways to infuse color into your kitchen and brighten up the space. You can accessorize with color in numerous ways from adding brightly colored accents like new chair cushions and vases to bold window shades and fresh framed wall art. If you're feeling fashionable, add accents that mimic Pantone's 2014 Color trends palate like Radiant Orchid, Celosia Orange, or Placid Blue.
2.) Open Up: Have kitchen cabinets that you can't stand looking at but don't have the option to change them? Hop on the open shelving trend and remove the cabinet doors. Open cabinets give kitchens a fresh, airy appeal and best of all you can display your favorite dishes. Just be sure to keep the kitchen doors handy to re-install when it's time to move out.
3.) Cut a rug: Adding a rug to your kitchen is another creative way to add color and visual appeal. Rugs can spice up an otherwise neutral kitchen as well as protect your floors. Flat-weave or indoor-outdoor style rugs are best in the space if you're looking for something easy to keep clean.
4.) Bold Backsplash: The backsplash is the space behind your stove and between the cabinets and the counters and can bring together the whole look of your kitchen. Adding a removable backsplash to your rental adds style and personality to your kitchen makeover in minutes. There are a variety of backsplash options to explore from vinyl wall decals to creating tiled designs on backer board. If you're feeling like a crafty do-it-yourselfer then there's no limit to what you can create.
5.) Shed Light on your Space: There's rarely anything worse than drab or dated light fixtures in a rental. But changing out light fixtures for something more up your alley is an easy way to brighten the space and add flair. Best of all, your light fixtures can leave when you do.
