Don’t underestimate the fresh paint of coat. It can drastically change the look of your kitchen. It is good to go in a different direction than the current color of your kitchen. If your kitchen is whitewashed and bright, you should go in the direction of moody and dark tones.

Similarly, go for the classic white if it’s a dark tone. The thing is, white paint makes it look like a bright and open space. Dark and moody tones give it a more serious and earthy look. Both are great looks.

2. Refresh The Cabinets

Unfortunately, kitchens are quite prone to clutter. There are typically storage areas used to store all kinds of unneeded items. So, you should declutter and only keep the things that you need.

This will give you more space for the items you actually need. If there isn’t enough storage space, you should think about adding extra storage. 

4. Improve and Upgrade Lighting

You can also use hanging lights to make your kitchen look aesthetic. The lights should go with the kitchen mood—bright lights for a white kitchen and warmer lights for a moody one.
