- Paint the walls or change your cabinet colors
- Get color inspiration from the foods you eat most

- Give yourself an interesting backsplash
- Add colorful window treatments
- Try a rug

○ Tuning up your Lighting
- Show off your countertops with under-cabinet lighting
- Set your own mood with a dinner switch

More Tips:
○ Subtle design changes can mean a lot in your remodel
If you are looking to spend a little and are looking for some modest updates to your current kitchen design consider these ideas: change out the hardware on your cabinets, install new lighting, change your throw rugs and curtains and change out your flowers. These can all have a big impact.

○ Try new paint colors ideas or add wall treatments
Painting the walls is not too involved but can have a big impact. Using home design software like Homestyler allows you to try literally hundreds of different wall treatments and paint colors without lifting a brush or visiting the paint store.

○ Reface your cabinets for a dramatic change
Painting and refacing your cabinets can have a dramatic impact without too much work.

○ Get color ideas from the foods you love
Since most people are attracted to the colors that are the same color as the food they like look at a variety of foods as a starting point for choosing your kitchen colors.
