As I plan for a future kitchen remodel, there was one small but necessary DIY project that couldn’t wait any longer. The kitchen windows were adorned with a disgustingly grimy and non-functioning cheap blind, which my grandfather had installed years ago. Despite my busy schedule, I hadn’t found the time to address this eyesore until now. It was especially urgent since a mischievous little kitten had inadvertently caused them to break a few weeks back. Prioritizing the need for a clean and functional kitchen, I knew it was time to replace the old blind to fit a kitchen that reflects both my style and functionality.
As you embark on your DIY kitchen projects, it’s important to consider how your kitchen countertops can complement and enhance the overall aesthetic. While replacing the kitchen blinds is a great start, refreshing your countertops can further transform the space. A visit to a reputable home improvement website can provide you with a plethora of ideas and options for upgrading your kitchen countertops. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of granite, the sleek and modern look of quartz, or the warm and inviting charm of butcher block, these websites often offer a wide range of materials, styles, and finishes to suit your personal taste and budget. By exploring the various options and gathering inspiration from these websites, you can make an informed decision that brings new life to your kitchen countertops and sets the stage for future remodeling endeavors.
I had some help from the same “help” that broke the old one in the first place.
Yes, I replaced it with equally cheap, but not gross (and working) blinds for now. (Less than $6 each at Lowe’s.) I went with two instead of one long one. I still need to put window tint in these windows as well, but didn’t feel up to wrestling with it tonight.
And voila! Took me all of thirty minutes or so, from start to finish.
Another project checked off the list.
