Your kitchen is the heart of your home, so why shouldn't you make it one of the best rooms in the house? We prepare food, entertain, and often sit down to dinner in our kitchens. Although we can't all afford to do a major kitchen renovation, there are a few easy upgrades you can turn to if your kitchen needs a facelift. Whether you're living in a rental or just saving up to do that dream re-do, these simple tricks will make a huge difference. One of the best tools for couples looking to update their kitchen is paint. There's no reason for bad lineoleum flooring – simple pick out a durable paint to cover it up. When you're trying to think of patterns to paint on your floors, think about your favorite cafe. Another great way to inexpensively update the room is by using a pot rack or knife strip. These accessories will give you extra storage for your pots and utensils, and add some metallic glitz to the space. Join Senior Homes Editor Zoë Gowen for more simple fixes to refresh your kitchen.
