Looking to breathe new life into your kitchen? We’re here to help! If you’re keeping to a tight budget, why don’t we look at some of the subtle, smaller differences we can make to brighten it up?
The first step would be to throw out any clutter on the worktops. This will help make your kitchen look bigger and will give you a clean slate to start your project! There are also plenty of small purchases you can make that will have a big impact. Start by replacing your kettle, toaster and storage jars with stylish, bright new ones.
Make a Statement In The Kitchen
Staying on the quirky, bold theme. Think about replacing the old broken clock you’ve had on the kitchen wall since you moved in? Buy a modern clock to stand out on your wall. These are cheap, yet effective changes you can make to your kitchen. However, if you’re looking to completely revamp, we’re thinking paint, door handles and furniture. Whilst paint isn’t exactly cheap, it won’t break the bank either. So rather than completely replacing units, why don’t you simply paint them a new colour? You’ll be surprised by how different it can look in a new colour.
Small Purchases, Big Differences
Changing your kitchen taps can make a huge difference. We’d recommend thinking about adding new features like rugs and lights to make it more homely. Change your bar stools for ones in a bright colour. How about a notice board to put on the wall or the fridge? Speaking of the fridge, why don’t you play around with a few accessories, like letter magnets. They’re great if you have kids, or even leaving messages for your partner. These small accessories help to make your kitchen your own.
Brighten the Room
What else can you do? Well one thing you could do is plant your own flowers, this has potential to turn into a hobby if you enjoy it. It’ll encourage you to spend more time in the kitchen, which will also make you want to take more care and pride in the appearance of your kitchen sides. Oh, and it’ll brighten the room up too! Or try growing herbs not only are they easy to maintain, you will also gain a fresh supply of ingredients! If that’s not your thing, and you don’t get time to water flowers, you could think about getting an artificial plant. Or if plants in general just aren’t your thing, but want to brighten the kitchen up, you could buy a colourful curtain or blind. Find something with a quirky design, so it’ll stand out the second you enter the room.
