Who says a kitchen renovation needs to involve sledgehammers and seemingly endless home depot runs? This week, we bring you the quickest way to update our favorite space, the kitchen. When you think accessories, your kitchen appliances probably don’t come to mind, but they should! The pieces you display on your counter top dictate the feel of your space.

Another way to change the look of your kitchen is to use open shelving for your dishware and glasses. C and I both took the plunge on the trend and love the look and functionality of it. It works like a charm for teensy kitchens, like ours. Keep the look clean by using a single, matching set of dishware, or go for a more eclectic feel with mismatched, but complimentary dishes.
