Open the door to a new look
Most people will believe that they need to replace their entire kitchen to give it a new look.
But what if there was a way that avoids it being a disruptive and long winded process?
It might be said that the kitchen is the most important room in the house.
For many of us, it is the most used as well as where we spend most of our time, whether we’re preparing nutritious meals for our families, preparing to entertain large and small crowds, or just sitting at the kitchen table sipping coffee with an old friend.
Regardless of whether your kitchen is large or small, it seems always that this room tends to be the gathering place when people visit the home.
It’s been said that kitchen upgrades can significantly increase the value of a home.
But you may not have the cash to invest in a brand new fitted kitchen, you may want to just try some of these tips to transform the heart of your home.
You won’t have to empty all your cupboards and we won’t be pulling out old kitchen units creating unnecessary upheaval.
No living with clutter for weeks on end.
No need to trawl through takeaway menus every night.
Your new kitchen will be up and running before you know it.
A fresh coat of white high gloss paint will lighten, brighten and open up your room.
If you’re a colour person add some bold colour to your cabinets and make a statement.
If you want a more masculine look try staining your cabinets a darker, richer colour.
All you have to do is replace old kitchen unit doors with made-tomeasure new ones and incorporating new kitchen worktops, a sink, or an oven and hob if you like, you will save at least half the money spent on a comparable new kitchen. A little fresh paint can work wonders. Kitchen walls get dirty and grimy easily and this can make a kitchen seem older and dingier, even if you wipe down your walls regularly. Try adding some colour to your walls. Colour can greatly transform your space. If your kitchen is white why not consider going green, grey or blue? You could consider replacing your worktops. This can be pricey but there are many affordable options out there. There’s really no way to quickly wake up tired countertops.
Some people may advise you to paint but this is one area where a small investment will pay out well in the long run.
Look into alternative materials such as wood, cork, concrete, even laminates.
Another way to add colour to your kitchen is to add a few plants.
Plants evoke a sense of calm and health. Plant some herbs and keep them in pretty pots so that your plants are functional as well.
So this summer why not try and jazz up your kitchen with a few cheaper options and bring some new life into your home.
