Interior Design doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune creating the room of your dreams, unless of course the room lacks so much function, that the only sensible choice is to tear the whole thing apart and rebuild.

If you just want to freshen it up, there are some simple ways to achieve your goal. David Waller Interiors, who’s been a leader in the Port Orange, FL area for almost 45 years, gives you some tips for creating a mini kitchen and bath remodel:

● Clean it up! Nope, we’re not talking about dirt and grime but, rather, about eliminating clutter. Simple, sleek lines are always a design trend; you can emulate that by moving appliances off the countertops, increasing your storage, and even adding some lighting to make it look bigger, brighter, and cleaner.

● Speaking of storage, there are some clever ways to maximize your space, even if you think you don’t have any:  Build shelves on window sills, under stairs, or in some under-used corner. Turn a pantry into a a storage room.  Add a decorative, but functional, ladder so you can finally reach those top shelves, or even build some up there, if you don’t have any.

A lot of people cringe when they hear about remodeling a kitchen countertop, Deltona, FL, but it’s really not complicated. If you don’t want to replace them, you can change their appearance with paint or tile.

● Up-level the kitchen floor. Right now, gray floors are hot. It can be any shade of light or dark gray. Gray floors work in any environment, from ultra-modern and sleek, to the rustic farmhouse kitchen. And here’s the good news: If your budget keeps saying “no” to hardwood, you can still have that look with laminate planks. You can even get it cut in tiles, if you’d rather have that style.

● Add some touches of color and texture: Just little ones, like a top-to-bottom backsplashes, mats strategically placed near the sink, or a wall hanging. You don’t have to change appliance colors; they can show scratches or go out of style and date the kitchen. For example, I love that purple Blue Star range, but how long before that looks dated?

● Effective use of space is probably the most important aspect here. That means proper storage and great cabinets. 

Don’t forget lighting. It isn’t just for women and their makeup needs, but can make the space look larger.
