It takes a very small time commitment to make some dramatic kitchen renovations. The entire mood or style of the room can be altered over a weekend. It is amazing what new drapes, a couple of gallons of paint and new flooring can do for a space.
The best way to make a quick dramatic change is to paint the walls and/or ceiling. Many people paint their kitchens yellow. It is very cheerful and can make a small room feel a lot bigger. Red is also a popular color for eating spaces as it stimulates the appetite.
Most people can replace a small kitchen floor in two days. Before you lay down most new flooring, you need to prepare the old surface to accept the new material. This usually involves removing all the old flooring until you get to the sub-floor. With specialized tools to install wood and ceramic tile floors their installation is pretty straightforward with a few easy steps.
Of all the available materials, vinyl floors are the fastest and easiest to install. Sheets of vinyl or adhesive-backed, individual squares are easy to cut, shape around obstacles and glue into place. Vinyl flooring is also one of the few types of floor coverings that does not require a complete removal of an old flooring in order to be installed.
Putting up new curtains or miniature blinds can very quickly alter the style of any room. Make them yourself using patterns from the internet or purchase them from a store, you can easily replace curtains for a dramatic new look. Custom made draperies can be ordered from most major department stores. To get the privacy of curtains while still being able to let in natural light, you can hang miniature blinds in your windows. Miniature blinds are fully adjustable for maximum privacy or maximum sun exposure and come in a wide variety of colors, textures and styles to give you the perfect style upgrade.
Many kitchen renovations can be performed in only a couple of days. Painting the ceiling and/or walls is the fastest way to make the most dramatic change in a room. A new floor can make a space feel cleaner and more modern. New window treatments can quickly alter the style of a room. Within two days you can have a completely different looking kitchen.
Another important project is replacing your existing counter-top. There are now so many different kinds and styles of counter-tops that it can be confusing. Some of the most popular are laminate, granite and cesarstone. Laminate counter-tops are usually the most affordable and are very easy to maintain when compared to granite which needs to be cleaned and sealed at least once a year.
