Most homeowners believe that the only way to get a stainless or colorful kitchen appliance is to buy a brand new one. This is completely incorrect. There are actually countless affordable and quick ways to spruce up the appearance of most kitchen home appliances.
Even if you can find great appliance on discounts, you might want to first look at the following options.
Buy replacement parts
Before looking for new appliances, see if there are options to upgrade the ones you have or use some replacement parts. You can easily find replacement handles or new knobs for many appliances. These can quickly refresh appearance. Just make sure that what you buy is completely compatible with what you have in your home.
Do you want to have a beautiful stainless steel fridge or a bright blue stove? This is possible when you utilize appliance paint, which can be sprayed or brushed on. Whenever you decide to paint the range hood or the stove, you also need to be careful so you get paint that has high heat resistance. The stovetop should be left exactly as it is since even such paint has clear temperature limits.
An alternative is to use high-quality chalkboard paint. This can transform the appliances and you end up with canvases that can be really useful when you want to keep some lists or when children need a place to create some art.
Use washi tape
Washi tape may be the latest DIY craze so many homeowners dismiss it but it can be great in your kitchen. This is a shame since it can so easily be used as masking tape that features colors and designs.
Washi tape is a material made out of Japanese native treas. It is really strong, just like duct tape and allows you to be highly creative as you decorate appliances with stripes, geometric designs, patterns and whatever else you might think about. You can even buy heat-resistant tape but you have to be sure that temperature limit is appropriate for where you will use it.
Add stainless panels
Stainless panels are practically magnetic sheets you can trim based on the dimensions of the kitchen appliances. You install them with ease and come in various different colors, prints, and designs. The kitchen can simply be transformed in just a few minutes, creating the idea of stainless appliances.
Use adhesive vinyl
Adhesive vinyl is known by crafters but not known by most people. You buy it in sheets and can choose out of literally any color you want. Use the vinyl by cutting it into the desired shapes, letters, designs or simply improvise some art. The dishwasher door or the fridge door can easily act as your creative canvas. The only problem is that adhesive vinyl does not do great with extreme temperatures. Always read product installation instructions and do not add these to your stove.
In many cases, the problem with the kitchen is that it does not seem alive. You can so easily solve this problem by adding funny magnets, colorful photographs, and similar items. These can often be changed and get a new aesthetic whenever you want to.
