Sprucing up the kitchen for spring doesn’t have to mean making a full remodel of the room. A couple of small improvements can have a big impact if they’re combined for maximum benefit. Spring is the perfect time for adding kitchen accessories for a new look with minimal effort. Try these ideas to bring a little spring fun to any kitchen, regardless of style.
Permanent and built-in soap dispensers are ideal for improving both the look and function of a kitchen sink. Wall-mounted units limit the options, but homeowners can add sink-mounted soap dispensers to islands and more. Dispensers with large reservoirs help homeowners go longer between refills, even when they’re washing dishes by hand every day. There’s a soap dispenser to match every style, and replacing an old, outdated or broken one is a great spring refresh project.
Matching Kitchen Accessory Sets
Accessory sets are an ideal way to quickly change the look of a kitchen without committing to any single large change. Swapping out everything from the cabinet pulls to the sink drains is a fast way to get a new style in just a weekend. Matching accessory sets ensure that there’s a cohesive look to the new additions.
Whether they’re alive or just faux replicas, house plants are the ideal spring addition to bring a little bit of nature’s beauty indoors. The kitchen is a good place to add house plants since many species have been proven by NASA-funded studies to improve indoor air quality. Since the kitchen is often the source of many air pollutants from the cooking process, adding a few snake plants or spider plants can make a big difference. Look for low-light varieties unless the kitchen has a lot of natural or artificial light.
Sweet shades of pastel are perfect for bringing the spring mood to any kitchen. When adding a new set of seasonal towels, it makes sense to install some new towel rings and bars to complement them. Every kitchen should have a towel bar or ring about 24 inches above the sink on either side. This makes for a convenient place to grab a dishcloth for drying up a spill or wet hands. Towel rings and bars are also great for mounting on the cabinet in front of a sink for easy access.
