1. Appliance Upgrades

Why not upgrade the most important pieces in your kitchen? From ovens to refrigerators, Memorial Day sales often feature discounts on appliances. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading to more energy-efficient models or investing in luxury appliances such as smart refrigerators or wine coolers, now is a good time to do so. And while you’re upgrading, don’t neglect the unsung hero of your kitchen: your range hood. At Hauslane, we’re offering up to 53% off of our professional quality range hoods.

2. Countertop Upgrades

Countertops are one of the best upgrades you can make in your kitchen to transform its look and feel. Some popular options include granite, quartz, marble, or butcher block. As you select the material, consider your budget, usage, and desired color palette.

3. Cabinet Refacing or Replacement

Give your cabinets a facelift. Depending on your time and resources, you might choose to reface them with new doors or hardware. Or you could consider replacing them completely to dramatically change the appearance of your kitchen. Shaker and open shelving cabinets are current popular styles.

4. Backsplash Installation

A backsplash installation is a favorite long weekend project for a weekend! It’s relatively simple to complete and makes a big impact on your kitchen. Some of the top materials for backsplash include subway tile, glass mosaic, and natural stone. Why not add some visual interest while protecting your walls from spills and splatters?

5. Lighting Upgrades

If you have a little extra time this weekend, go for a lighting upgrade project! Replacing lighting fixtures can instantly improve the functionality and aesthetics of your kitchen. Some ideas for inspiration: energy-efficient LED recessed lights, pendant lights over the island, or under-cabinet lighting.

6. Flooring Improvements

Got outdated flooring? Memorial Day is a good time to roll up your sleeves and do a replacement. Whether you choose laminate, tile or luxury vinyl plank, you’ll love the new look fresh flooring can provide.

7. Fresh Coat of Paint

What’s more impactful than a fresh coat of paint? An updated color palette may be just what your kitchen needs.
