Planning to host a Thanksgiving dinner? There’s one thing that’s more important than the food: the experience. And it all starts in the kitchen!
Aside from being the space where the food is prepared, the kitchen is often used as the main entertainment hub for guests and loved ones during Thanksgiving. So, if your kitchen looks brand, boring, and a little neglected, it’s time to spruce things up.
While a major kitchen upgrade can immensely boost the room’s aesthetic appeal, a small kitchen makeover can lend a lasting impression, especially if you implement a statement décor and play around with colors.
So, what kitchen upgrades should you consider?
To help you get the perfect kitchen space for Thanksgiving, we’ve compiled a list of kitchen remodeling ideas for Thanksgiving that will give your kitchen a fresh new look. Let’s dig in!
1. Upgrade Outdated Flooring
The floor is undeniably the most visible part of your kitchen. If it’s in bad shape, it will give your kitchen bad vibes—something you don’t want during Thanksgiving celebrations.
There are many varieties available for kitchen flooring.
Tile remains a popular choice for many homeowners, but if you want something more classic, you might want to go with hardwood or vinyl flooring. Other popular flooring options to consider include laminate, cork, and linoleum flooring.
2. Add Some Plants
Thanksgiving is all about giving gratitude and celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. What a better way to celebrate it and give it a commemorative twist than to add some fresh greenery and flowers to your kitchen.
Not only will plants and flowers liven up the mood, but they also bring the beauty of Mother Nature into your kitchen.
Flowers, in particular, add color, texture, and beauty to your kitchen and can complement your home décor. You can display wildflowers in a glass jar paired with a group of wreath foliage on one side and fresh pumpkins on the other.
3. Get Artsy
Getting creative with your kitchen can go a long way in boosting appeal.
If you don’t want to splurge on kitchen remodeling, you can perform minor upgrades, like painting and getting creative with new lighting to give it a unique look. Painting can add harmony by introducing tones that match the surrounding fixtures.
You can look for eye-catching wallpaper or paint all your cabinets in your favorite hue. Although the ubiquitous white kitchen is the new trend, introducing more colors into the space can give it a unique and inspiring look.
4. Use Striking Cabinet Designs
Great cabinets can make a bold statement in your kitchen.
Whether you opt to remodel with new upper or lower cabinets, your guests will love the added curb appeal from the new cabinets. White cabinets are preferable, but you’ll want to choose a color that matches your house décor.
Also, go for a pattern that will wow your guests.
You can choose from a wide variety of cabinet design patterns, but for a contemporary look and feel, we’d suggest Mediterranean patterns. Or opt for sleek design ideas with glass or laminate doors for a modern kitchen.
5. Add Smart Tech
The kitchen is often considered the heart of a home.
It’s where your friends and guests often congregate during Thanksgiving dinner to chat and get the first crack at the food. Modernizing it with intelligent technology is a great way to remodel it and give your guests a “wow” experience.
But how do you incorporate smart tech in the kitchen?
You don’t need to spend a fortune to make your kitchen smart. You can start with apps that run smart ovens to make your cooking fun.
You could also add smart lighting that works with Alexa to liven up your kitchen. Upgrading your smoke detectors to an internet-enabled Google Nest can also do the trick.
6. Remodel the Hardware
Upgrading the hardware can also make a big difference in your kitchen.
Even minor hardware upgrades can give your kitchen a facelift your guests will love. Consider changing the cabinet handles, knobs, and faucets.
For a fresh new look, consider adding metallic hardware. Sure, a farmhouse sink may look sleek with a marble or granite finish. But adding a stainless-steel faucet can further increase the aesthetic value of your kitchen.
Remodeling your kitchen is a great way to give it a fresh new look in preparation for Thanksgiving.
And in most cases, you can count on your kitchen upgrades to add value to your home. According to a recent Realtor.com survey, 80% of homebuyers ranked the kitchen as one of the top three places that matter most when buying a home.
