The kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether small or large, old or new, it is where family and friends gather to share dinners, celebrate special occasions and make lasting memories.

After three decades of cooking in the same kitchen in her Etobicoke bungalow, my mother decided the hub of her home needed a “refresh”. Without breaking the bank, she was able to update her dated kitchen in two weeks.

Here are six ways to spruce up your old kitchen:

  1. Replace your old and worn kitchen countertop with a new quartz one. Quartz countertops are durable and easy to keep spotless.
  2. Remove dated backsplash with a more contemporary mosaic or glass tile. Check out these tiles from Home Depot.
  3. Install a stainless steel undermount sink. Consider a double sink for multi-tasking.
  4. Choose a functional kitchen faucet, but keep style and finish in mind.
  5. A fresh coat of paint can change the look and feel of the kitchen.
  6. Lastly, accessorize with new tea towels, placemats, oven mitts and artwork from HomeSense.
