tip #1: smart appliances can make your kitchen both functional and stylish. Technology-integrated kitchens are the biggest trend of 2018. They allow you to control settings and receive notifications from your mobile device, save and conserve money and energy, and communicate with one another, while looking stylish all at the same time. Case in point: the LG 36" 29.6 Cu. Ft. InstaView French Door Refrigerator ($3,999.99), which sends an alert to your smartphone via the LG SmartThinQ app if you accidentally leave the door open.

tip #2: add pops of colour using countertop appliances. Adding splashes of colour with appliances can create eye-catching focal points and make kitchens more exciting. For those who have smaller kitchens and limited storage space, it’s a great way to turn countertop items into usable works of art. KitchenAid’s 2-Speed Immersion Blender ($79.99), for one, is sleek, stylish and comes in a rainbow-worthy range of fashionable hues (we’re personally partial to Ice Blue).

tip #3: use paint to modernize your cabinets. If your cabinets are old and outdated, one of the easiest and most cost-effective solutions is to paint them. For a modern look, try this year’s trending colours—variations of greys, blues and greens. Be sure to keep your large and small appliances in mind when selecting colours, and make sure they match or complement one another.

tip #4: replace old upper cabinets with open shelving. If your cabinets are tired, tear down a handful of upper cabinets and replace them with open shelving. This will allow you to show off your gorgeous dishware, stylish small appliances or add seasonal décor for quick new looks. For an extra pop of colour, add wallpaper to the wall behind the shelves so it becomes a focal point in your kitchen.

tip #5: refresh your kitchen look with bold décor. Look for things like accessories, dishware, wall art and appliances to revamp your kitchen. By adding accent pieces that have contrasting colours or geometric shapes, you can add a huge visual impact at a relatively low price point.

tip #6: make cleaning up stylish, too. If you’re hard-pressed to find anything fashionable about cleaning up (we certainly are), invest in kitchen appliances that make that job as easy and fuss-free as possible. The Vitamix Ascent 2300 1.89L 1500-Watt Stand Blender ($599.99) has a self-cleaning container, while the LG 30" 6.3 Cu. Ft. Self-Clean True Convection Freestanding Induction Range ($3,499.99) does just what its name says it does!

cheeky bonus tip: Can’t replace all of your old appliances at once? Start with a wine fridge, like the French door-inspired Silhouette 5.14 Cu. Ft. Beverage Centre ($999.99 at Best Buy), which boasts two independently controlled temperature zones for wine and beverage store, plus "Cool Blue" LED track lighting that lets you showcase the contents without adding heat.
