Easy living: Quick kitchen updates Here’s some easy, costefficient updates for a outmoded or drab-looking kitchen:
Walls For a timeless look, strip dated wallpaper and replace it with a bright new coat of paint. Choose a color that nicely complements the floors, countertops and cabinets. For a modern take on wallpaper, look for mosaic tile collections that showcase tiles and patterns, providing texture for any wall in the house.
According to expert Realtors, kitchen updates offer homeowners the highest return on investment than any other home improvement job. Countertops Update the overall appearance of the kitchen by redoing the countertops. A kitchen can be transformed in one day by replacing the coun-
tertops with heat, cold and scratch resistant glass or granite. For an even more elegant look, consider opting for mosaic tiles, inspired by traditional Italian glass mosaics. New iPad applications, such as iGRANITE, can be downloaded from the Internet allowing users to upload a snapshot of their space, and change the colors and textures of every surface of the room.
