My Tip As A Buffalo Realtor: Hardware Swap
Don’t over focus on kitchen cabinet hardware. Numerous times I see a solid kitchen with great bones but something as small as the cabinet hardware can completely drown it out. If brass, silver or other fixture finishes just isn’t your style consider swapping out handles, nobs and more to update your kitchen with a smaller change.
I’ve done this myself in a few different kitchens and it’s amazing the difference that a hardware change can make.
