Kearney. KITCHEN IDEAS. April 09th , 2018.

On a warm day in early spring, I opened the window above the kitchen sink and breathed in the sweet earthy smell. "Spring at last," I sighed. Turning around to survey the kitchen, I realized that although my heart was ready for springtime, my kitchen was not.

From cluttered countertops to worn-out flooring, nothing about the state of our kitchen conveyed feelings of spring. My husband and I crafted a plan to breathe new life into our kitchen, making it ready for the spring months and year round enjoyment.

Step One: De-clutter the Kitchen Countertops
Over the winter, our countertops accumulated an assortment of clutter. To begin our kitchen clean-up, I divided the clutter into two piles: trash and keep. I enlisted the help of my children to put the "keep" items in their proper homes. The trash pile was even easier to dispose of.
Once the clutter was gone, I removed the small appliances and cleaned the countertops thoroughly. I bought a bouquet of fresh hydrangeas at the grocery store for $5.99 and placed them on the center island.

Step Two: Refinish the Hardwood Floors
When our home was built more than eight years ago, the builder used a low-grade finish on the kitchen floors. Unfortunately, the flooring didn't hold up well to our rowdy family of five and two dogs.
This spring, we decided to have the floors refinished by a small local contractor. In order to build his business, this contractor charged 30 percent less than his competitors, finishing our 700 square feet of wood flooring for $1400.

Step Three: Clean and Polish the Cabinets
The floor refinishing process left our cabinets dustier than usual. I grabbed a wet rag and quickly wiped the cabinet faces. Once dry, I used wood polish to restore luster and shine. This project took approximately two hours and didn't cost a penny, since I already had the cleaners on hand.

Step Four: Wash the Window Treatments
Looking around, I realized our window treatments also needed some freshening up. I took down the faux-wood blinds and soaked them in a bathtub with warm water and white vinegar. After 20 minutes, I removed the blinds from the water and dried them with a clean cloth. I shook out the curtains and replaced a torn panel with an identical one I had purchased on sale for $19.99.

Our kitchen is the gathering place where our family comes together for meals, conversation, homework, games, and crafts. Over the course of the past two weeks, we spent $1426 welcoming springtime into our kitchen - the heart of our home. It was worth every penny.

Easy Ways to Save on Decorating Your Kitchen for Summer
Make your kitchen sizzle this summer with purse-friendly decorating. Invite summer colors and fabrics into your kitchen, and save your money for important things this summer like trips to the beach, your favorite foods for the grill, and new lawn furniture.

Easy Ways to Save on Decorating Your Kitchen for Summer
Lighten the Load
One of the easiest ways to save on decorating your kitchen for summer is to un-decorate your space. Gone are the winter boots and mats, stacks of hats and gloves, and holiday decorations. Minimizing clutter and the number of accessories you have on each wall and shelf instantly transforms the kitchen into a more calm, inviting space.

Paint the Trim: Light and Bright
You may not have the money, the time or the desire to repaint your entire kitchen for summer. You can take a shortcut by painting the decorative trim in the room. Trim may also be the areas in the kitchen which show wear and tear, and they may need some TLC. Bruce Goff of Domus Design Group recommends painting trim with off white or light cream to "make the wall color pop and be even more colorful."

Linens'n Things
For summer it's refreshing to take down all of your linens in start fresh, especially if you skipped over redecorating your dining room or your kitchen for spring. Wash and dry your curtains, tablecloths, dish towels and linens. If you can, leave them down for a few days to allow yourself room to rethink the colors and accessories.

Replacing visible dish towels and pot holders is an inexpensive way to redecorate your kitchen for summer. Summer images including sunflowers, bright colors, flowers, and patterns with yellow and green will invigorate your kitchen space. Check the local discount stores, and mix and match single items for an eclectic and carefree look.

Carefree for Summer
Continue the carefree feel of summer when you decorate your kitchen table, breakfast nook or breakfast bar. Winter is gone and so is the formal approach of perfectly matching everything. Find six or eight single placemats you like with one common theme or color without matching them. Using cool greens and blues, colors of grass and sky and water is an easy way to invite summer to your dinner table.

Woven placemats and checked linens evoke picnics and fun, and can also be a cheap way to redecorate the kitchen for summer.
"Tablecloths, linen napkins, placemats and dishes are easy and fun changes along with tea kettles and dishtowels. Don't forget that paper towels come in an assortment of designs which are very inexpensive," advises Lori Miller, Interior Designer.

Seasonal Rotating
When you rotate your seasonal linens and accessories for each season, the items will last longer, and you won't have to replace them as frequently. Mix in decorations that are special to you around the holidays, and you can add even more life to your summer and seasonal linens.
