The Kitchen is one of the most important places in any home. With more and more folks working from home due to COVID-19, that means not only more time actually spent at home, but also suddenly puts the kitchen front and center as the all-in-one office, restaurant, bar, family hang out time, and well, just about anything. It’s so versatile, yet, it is often overlooked at how some small changes can have a big impact.
The ROI is even greater.

“If you are looking for the best overall, I recommend the Moen 7594EC Arbor Motionsense because it features both top and base motion sensors for hands-free activation and an automatically retracting pull down wand with two spray options.”
- Counter Tops – Once of the first things we see sometimes when we enter a kitchen as it is the thing that ages the space. Get inspired with some gorgeous pieces here:

- Cabinets Eye-catchy for the wrong reasons isn’t something you want. House Beautiful recommends, “Double-Duty Cabinets
Want to hide your dishwasher? Add a cabinet front, so it doesn’t break up the line of cabinetry under the counter. Even better, hide it with something as gorgeous as hardware-free cabinets in a blush pink paint.”
- Backsplash – This is something fun to do that you can do yourself. It’s an aesthetically pleasing upgrade but also a sensible one! Check out this DIY on YouTube.
- Flooring There are so many surprisingly affordable flooring options. FromWaterproof Vinyl to Tile, there’s something budget appropriate and aesethcially a good fit for your situation at home.
