How to Make Your Kitchen Look More Expensive Than It Is

There are a number of tricks that homeowners can use in a kitchen remodel to make it look more expensive than it really is.

While a full kitchen remodel can be expensive, true “luxury” is in the details. And by employing a few of these ideas, you can have a fabulous kitchen without going over budget.

Grab Attention

A well-placed accent piece grabs attention and makes it look like you’ve gone all out. A sink, for example, doesn’t have to be just a sink. Investing in a copper, stone, or farmhouse sink demands attention and can elevate the tone and feel of your kitchen.

If everyone seems to gather around the kitchen island when you entertain, make that the center of attention. Natural stone like quartz, marble, or soapstone countertops look and feel elegant and can make an island the focal point. Your friends will secretly be envious thinking that your new kitchen is more expensive than it is.

Light It Up

Lighting is often an afterthought in kitchen design, but the right lighting and unique lighting fixtures make all the difference. Low hanging lights make ceilings look higher. Undercabinet lights give a rich, warm glow. Recessed LEDs look sleek and modern while providing focused and efficient light to work. Plus, as long as you are adding that accent sink or island, you might as well light it up and show it off!

Choose the Right Color

The right paint color can totally transform a kitchen. Creams and beiges make a traditional kitchen design look more elegant. Underscore a modern kitchen with darker colors like black or gray. White reflects light and highlights darker wooden or painted cabinets and draws attention to colored and patterned tile backsplashes and floors.
