If you want a budget-friendly kitchen refresh for 2024, find easy, DIY tips for updating your kitchen from Custom Service Hardware. We offer some kitchen hacks that put you on the latest trends yet won’t empty your wallet. These kitchen updates give your space a modern touch without compromising your budget.

Revitalize Cabinets with a New Stain or Color

One of the easiest ways to a quick kitchen refresh is by changing the color of your cabinets. A simple coat of wood stain or paint transforms the space, breathing new life into the heart of your home. Opt for shades like muted greens or soft blues for a contemporary look, or browse our extensive collection of richly toned, high-quality stains from General Finishes to achieve the wood grain look that is so hot for 2024.

Update Cabinet Hardware to a New Finish or Style

Swapping out old cabinet handles and pulls for new, on-trend decorative hardware is a cost-effective way to give your kitchen a quick glow up. Choose modern and sleek designs that align with the current trends in kitchen aesthetics, or pick any of our options that complement industrial, cottage, or cabin vibes. Custom Service Hardware offers a variety of contemporary and rustic cabinet door knobs as well as unique and popular pulls that make a brand new statement on your existing drawers and cabinets. Our budget-friendly hardware options elevate the overall look of your kitchen, even if you change nothing else. 

Pro Tip: For an ultra-inexpensive functional upgrade, add a BLUM restriction clip to any kitchen cabinet doors that hit the wall. This handy hardware also prevents twin overlay doors from striking each other when opened at the same time.

Upgrade Kitchen Lighting 

A well-lit kitchen is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, and the biggest trend for kitchens in 2024 is under-counter lighting. Custom Service Hardware offers an easy-to-install LED tape kit, designed to run under 16 feet of kitchen cabinets. This effect brightens your kitchen space with a modern design element without having to purchase expensive fixtures or pay for rewiring.

Browse our drawer inserts to discover innovative pull-out cutlery trays, knife block trays, and drawer dividers to maximize storage efficiency.
