Busy has become a way of life. Between work, household chores and time with family and friends, we often don’t have time to complete our entire wish list of home improvements. Luckily, there are several simple kitchen and bath updates that you can conquer in minimal time – while delivering maximum style and functional impact. In fact, here are a few projects that can be completed in about an hour (or less!) to help you get the results you desire, while still leaving time to tackle everything else on your plate.
Style and Storage Makeover
Want to quickly enhance the look and functionality of your bathroom? Accessories, such as towel bars and hooks, can be a quick and cost-effective solution for decluttering your space. Today’s accessories combine stylish flair with useful function, like those in the Flara bathroom collection from Moen. With just a few simple swaps, you can easily refresh your bathroom’s décor without breaking the bank.
Improve the function and feel of your kitchen prep space by replacing your existing faucet with a fixture that combines efficiency with beautiful design. The Surie pulldown kitchen faucet artfully mixes traditional design details with clean, contemporary lines for a current take on a classic design. The faucet also features Moen’s Power Boost technology, which fills containers faster* and provides 50 percent more spray power* for quicker clean-up with the push of a button.

Kitchen Hardware Update
Does your kitchen cabinet hardware look dingy or dated? This simple project can make a dramatic difference in your home’s appearance. Look for new cupboard knobs and drawer pulls that are designed to match your existing faucets and fixtures in both style and finish. Whether you prefer traditional or something with a more modern look, such as the faucets and hardware in Moen’s Align Spring Kitchen Sink Faucet in Matte Black, there are many options available to extend your sense of design down to the details. With just a few twists of a screwdriver, you’ll have a new look in no time.
But don’t stop with knobs and pulls – much like the bath, towel rings and hooks are the perfect solution for managing dish towels that are often carelessly strewn by kitchen appliances and on countertops. Establish a special spot for this kitchen necessity by mounting hooks, towel rings or towel bars on the side of an upper cabinet, the end of the island or in another kitchen work space. Voila, you’ve found the perfect home for your dish towels!
