Accessories can make a huge difference in your kitchen by adding pops of color with new canisters or by replacing your old cutting board and prep bowls with new ones. Add or replace items such as soap dispensers, sink grids and basin racks to add a subtle touch.

One of the handiest changes you can make in your kitchen is to add a trash chute in your counter that goes directly to your garbage, compost or recycling bin.
