The kitchen is one of the most-used spaces in a home. If you rent, or if you're not ready to commit to a kitchen renovation just yet, here are three great tips to refresh this important space in your home:

1. Changing the hardware in your kitchen is a great way to update your kitchen space without a high price tag. Make sure to take one of the old handles with you to ensure your new hardware will fit.


2. Declutter your countertops – contain your stuff! A clutter-free kitchen will always make everyone and everything look put together. If you have cereal boxes or dog treats on your counter, consider containing them in stylish containers.


3. Updating a tired backsplash can bring new life to your kitchen. You can hire a pro or take on this DIY project yourself. Visit your local tile shop to choose your perfect backsplash that will compliment your existing kitchen.
