4 Simple Ways to Customize Your Kitchen

It's easy to customize your kitchen with these simple improvement ideas! Try a unique backsplash, new knobs and pulls or even a beautiful wooden dish rack!

Kitchens are where your family spends most of their time. Through preparing meals, eating snacks or catching up, your kitchen is often the focal point of your family's life.

That means your kitchen should be a focal point of your style! The following are a few ways that you can plan and execute making your kitchen yours.

1. Pick a Backsplash

Textures, lines, shapes and many other factors can transform your kitchen to match your style. And the best part? Many styles can be installed with little or no prior experience.

2. Change Your Knobs

It's a simple thing to replace, but it can change the whole look of your cabinets without investing a lot of time and money. Your local hardware store will have a selection of knobs, but check stores like Anthropologie, Etsy, Hobby Lobby or even antique stores for a more shabby-chic and eclectic look.

3. Add Under Cabinet Lighting

While many newer manufactured homes come with ample lighting, you may find yourself longing for a brighter workspace.

Adding lights can cost anywhere from $5 for LED puck lights to $40 for light bars, but any additional light will brighten up your kitchen and add your other improvements.

4. Add a Wooden Dish Rack

For as little as $20, a dish drying rack will not only add a practical space for drying your fragile dishes, but you will also add the warm touch of wood, which contrasts nicely with most countertop materials. Pick a color of wood that pops or that you think is unique!

There are lots of other ways to improve your kitchen and make it a little more personal, but we hope these 4 steps will give you a good start.
