Trends provide a breath of fresh air and bring new life to your go-to look. When it comes to your kitchen, a simple update can do wonders. Reupholstering chairs or changing out cabinet fixtures can make a kitchen look more dressed up or a little bit more casual. After all, since the kitchen is the most-used room in your home, it deserves to look its best. However, sometimes trends could be fleeting—and if you had spent a small fortune on updating your kitchen, you’re stuck with a costly and outdated look.

That’s where DIY comes in handy: let’s say you want to experiment with a specific look like brass hardware. Installing brass accessories on your cabinets allows you to try a new trend without spending a lot of money and you can do it yourself. And if you do end up liking it, you spent enough time living with the new trend which can help you to make important decisions such as making a permanent fixture with the help of a professional contractor. Here you will learn how you can implement upcoming trends in kitchen remodeling and design on a DIY budget.

Bring Back the ‘80s Without Getting Stuck

The ‘80’s is an era you may not think has a place in the new millennium, but the latest kitchen design gives a nod to this period known for bright colors and shiny brass metal finishes. DIY decorating allow you to incorporate modern ‘80’s design elements without getting stuck in time. For example, shiny brass fixtures were very typical of ‘80’s décor, but its millennium reincarnation has an antiqued or burnished look. Experiment with this trend by installing brass hardware on cabinets and drawers in your kitchen.

In the modern household, families use the kitchen for more than meal making. The kitchen has become a gathering place for dinner, a spot to unwind after school, and an area for socializing with fellow foodie friends. Since the kitchen is the most-visited room, it needs decorative elements to contribute to the inviting and welcoming atmosphere. But there’s no need to go all out on your budget—updating your kitchen with an artistic upgrade could be something as simple as DIY plank backsplash.

The oven range hood is another great place where you can incorporate artistic elements without sacrificing function. For example, you can install a shelf on a DIY wood vent.


Paint – Try a New Color Scheme

Painting your walls or kitchen cabinets is a well-known way to incorporate a trending color scheme without permanency—hey, you can always change the color when you want to. But if you want to keep things simple, there are different ways to test out a color scheme without overwhelming your kitchen, such as only painting your kitchen stools or only painting the kitchen island cabinets. If you warm up to the new color scheme, then paint another fixture in your kitchen. Another option is adding color to the space through decor as we see above. This is especially good if you plan on selling your home in the future and want to keep things neutral for now.

DIY decorating gives you the flexibility to experiment with different looks for your kitchen without needing to spend a lot of money on a design trend that you may want to change in a couple of months.
