The holiday season is here, and if you are like most people, chances are you are running around from store to store trying to make this season the best one yet for all of your loved ones. This time of year can get stressful between all the hustle and bustle, and it is easy to forget to take care of yourself in the midst of all the gingerbread scented chaos.
This December, pause for an hour or two and give yourself a gift that will keep on giving all year long with these simple kitchen improvements.
With just a few dollars and half an hour, your kitchen cabinets will be transformed with new hardware. Ditch the rusting faux-gold, and instead install simple stainless steel knobs and handles to all of your cabinets and drawers. This small task will bring big personality to your space.
After a long day of holiday chores, you want a place to relax with your family over a hot meal, so consider replacing the cushions on the chairs around your kitchen table, or even the pillows in your dining room’s window seat. Adding a splash of color with new cushions can help showcase your personality, and the fresh softness will have you relaxing in no time.
If you have a little more time and budget to treat yourself, replace your worn-out countertops with a stunning marble slab. This trick will not only make your kitchen look like a million bucks, but it will also add tangible value to your home. The sooner you install your new countertops, the sooner you and your family can get started baking Christmas cookies and making memories.
The holiday season flies by in the blink of an eye, so make a point to pause and take a bit of time for yourself before the tree gets boxed up for another year. By treating yourself and your kitchen, even in just a small way, you will reap big rewards for many seasons to come.
