A lighting scheme of large pendants above your kitchen island or table can make a dramatic statement. So, if you only have simple lights then change them and hang something like oversized pendant lights instead.

3. Reface the Cabinets with a Fresh Coat of Paint

For an underfoot that feels cozy, adds texture and introduces color to the kitchen, pick a colorful rug like this one. It will probably also be a good idea to get something washable as there will be food drips that will need cleaning.
