Here’s 12 quick kitchen updates that you can easily accomplish before the holidays.

Paint the Kitchen Cabinets

Painting kitchen cabinets is quick and very affordable. If you’re feeling ambitious, you might even create a holiday theme, with red and green cabinets. Citrusy colors are also bright and lively and will add cheer to the winter holidays.

Add Updated Cabinet Handles and Pulls

It’s easy and affordable to replace your old cabinet doors and pulls with new, spruced-up ones. If you’ve had plain handles for years, buy some in bright contrasting colors for a great pop in the kitchen.

Paint an Accent Wall

Painting an entire kitchen can be a major effort, given the number of large appliances that have to be pulled out from the wall. Painting just one accent wall can be smooth sailing and done in an afternoon. Here, too, you can choose a color that’s great for the holidays, like scarlet or navy, which will also lift your spirits come February.
