Customizing Your Kitchen by Performance Kitchens

These days everyone is looking for ways to spruce up their home and really show off its personality. One of the best rooms to do this is in is the kitchen! The sheer amount of customization options for the kitchen alone is nearly endless making the process that much easier, but the question remains: What specifically can I customize? Our answer? Anything and everything!

There’s almost nothing in your kitchen that couldn’t be swapped out for a more fitting look. Everything from the simple forks, spoons and knives you use to the dishwasher and refrigerator to the cabinets and drawers.

Customizing Your Kitchen

Open Shelving And Liners

One of the most popular modern looks nowadays is open shelving storage over closed cabinet storage. Open shelving like this can make your kitchen appear to be larger than it actually is by having less obstructive storage giving the illusion of more space. Additionally, adding a shelving liner with a unique color or design to either open shelving or closed cabinetry can add a fresh feeling to old looks without having to spend a ton to do so!

Display Cabinetry

If you’d prefer to keep your closed cabinetry, consider changing out just the cabinet door face with an open faced cabinet door sporting a glass window. This is a great way to add a break in cabinet appearances while displaying your fine dining ware. Also depending on the amount of cabinets you have, you’ll only need to replace a couple of cabinet doors to get the desired break in appearance saving on costs. Also consider the point made above about shelving liners in combination with your display cabinetry for an extra pop.

A Fresh Coat Of Paint

One of the best ways to customize your kitchen while keeping costs low is with a bucket of fresh paint. If you’re looking for that new kitchen feeling, we’d highly recommend applying a color different from the current wall color, though even applying a fresh coat of the existing color can work wonders for the look of the kitchen as well. Similarly this can be applied to kitchen cabinetry, drawers, tables, chairs and more for that extra personal touch, an option we also highly recommend.


Many homes are still using older appliances that could probably be updated. Naturally you might think immediately of the expense that buying a new refrigerator or dishwasher might bring, however these days the costs of buying a new appliance is not only lower than previous years but they’re also much more energy efficient. The energy savings and value added to the home alone more often than not outweigh any negative if you can find one.

Cabinet And Drawer Hardware

One of our favorite methods to customize a kitchen here at Performance Kitchens is the incredibly simple method of switching up the cabinet and drawer knobs throughout your kitchen. Often these are overlooked but they can really make the difference when on a tight budget. There’s a ton of options available for them as well so you’ll be sure to find one that suits your style.
