The heart of many homes are the kitchens, so if you want to add value to your home, think about a diy kitchen renovation. All kitchens have cupboards in them, but by changing the cupboard doors, either by repainting them, or even replacing them, the appearance of the kitchen can change quite dramatically. A new looking kitchen adds value to a home.

For houses with old work surfaces, replacing the counter top is a priority. But getting a new look for the counters, the appearance of the kitchen can be easily changed.

Then there is the flooring for a kitchen. Typically you need something that you can easily clean spills from. Tiles of ceramic or vinyl can give your diy kitchen a very different look, but make sure you check into the materials first. Ceramic tiles are very cold on the feet, so unless you have radiant floor heating, you might not want this kind of tile in your kitchen. For any one standing them for any length of time it can have quite a chilling effect.

Vinyl tiles are a little easier on the feet, and it is easy to clean them too. But do you want tiles, or do you want to cut a larger piece of linoleum to the shape of your kitchen? The choice is of course yours, and you need to think about it carefully for the pros and cons.

Do you want laminate flooring? While laminate looks good, if there are any water leaks from the dishwasher, or sinks, you could find that the laminate floor is damaged, and unfortunately it can not be repaired – we know, that happened to us too! Water damage can separate the laminate, leaving a gap in the boards, and raised edges you can trip over.

Something that is often neglected in diy kitchens is the lighting.

There are a lot of options available nowadays, depending on your tastes, so you can be quite creative if you choose. Remember that some kitchens get a lot of grease in them, so make sure you get light fixtures that can be easily cleaned.

A less expensive way to get a new look in your diy kitchen is to change the knobs and handles on the cupboards and drawers. It can make a surprising difference to the room without costing an arm and a leg.

If you have a large kitchen without an island in it, then this is something you might want to consider. There are many different styles, with various features – some have sinks, others have pull out stools – but most have storage which is invaluable in a kitchen. There are very few people who have enough storage space in their kitchen, especially as there are more and more different kitchen gadgets aimed to ease our lives. It might make it easier to chop, but where do you store it in the meantime?

So, there you have it, a few ways you an improve your diy kitchen while adding value to it too.
