Are you getting ready to put your house on the market? Does your kitchen look like it was designed in 1985? A full kitchen remodel can cost thousands of dollars, but often just a few small updates can make that old kitchen look new. A do-it-yourself kitchen refresh should take no more than a couple of rainy weekends and InstaTrim’s peel and stick waterproof strips can help you get the job done.

1. Give your cabinets a facelift.

    Decide if you will be cleaning, staining or painting your cabinets. Sometimes a little elbow grease can get the job done. Next, consider replacing all of the handles, pulls, and hinges. It’s amazing what this can do to freshen up the look of your kitchen. Finally, are your cabinets flush against the wall or are there an unsightly gaps? Walls are naturally uneven surfaces, and often there are gaps between the wall and the cabinets. To seal this, you can either use messy caulk or a simple solution like InstaTrim. The quick-to-apply, flexible peel-and-stick caulk alternative goes on easily and without the mess of traditional caulking solutions.  Watch the InstaTrim  how-to video for a quick tutorial.

    2. Make your kitchen sink shine.

    The sink area is one of the focal points of any kitchen. A dirty, leaky old sink can bring down the whole room. Inspect the area around the sink. Is the caulk worn and moldy? Consider replacing it with InstaTrim. Just dig out the old caulk, clean the area, peel, press and you have a perfect waterproof seal. There is no better way to keep your kitchen sink free from debris, mildew, and mold than to seal it with a flexible strip of InstaTrim.

    3. Add a stylish backsplash.

    Today there are many choices for peel-and-stick backsplashes that look like real tile. This option will give you a professional, high-end look without the trouble and mess of applying grout. A few measurements, a little wall prep and you will have your new backsplash completed in no time. Hide the unsightly, uneven edges with a perfect line of InstaTrim’s trim strips along the base.  

    4. Apply a fresh coat of paint.

      Apply a fresh coat of paint, and you’re ready to enjoy your new kitchen. Don’t forget to use InstaTrim along the ceiling and baseboards for a  sharp, clean edge. InstaTrim is paintable and is also available in multiple colors to match or complement almost any paint color.
