The kitchen is the heart of every home and it is the place where we make our favourite meals, host dinner with family and friends, and enjoy those date nights on a Saturday. If you are looking at your kitchen this month and hoping to make a few changes, we have some great ideas for you to try this week.
Here are some of the things you can do to your kitchen if you are on a budget and want to quickly refresh the space.
Refresh the walls
The first and one of the most impactful things you can do to your kitchen this year is refresh the walls with a new coat of paint. You can choose to keep it simple with white throughout or choose a feature wall behind your cooker that will create a stunning scene for all who visit. Depending on the layout of your kitchen, take a look at magazines and Pinterest to find what colours would suit your kitchen and paint your walls this week.
Invest in new taps
New Kitchen taps can be the best way to quickly refresh your space without spending too much money this week. New taps such as chrome taps can be the ideal way for you to bring life back to the room as well as make it look more luxurious and expensive. A chrome mixer tap is a modern choice and you can even go one step further with a boiling water tap which will make you the perfect brew!
Get a new bin
Is your bin a dull plastic blob in the corner of the room? Get rid of it. The bin isn’t the most exciting thing to upgrade in your kitchen, however switching to a motion sensor metal bin can really improve the overall look of your home. Consider even coordinating the colour of your bin with the walls of the room or the appliances you have on the countertops.
Lay a vinyl floor
If you don’t have a huge budget but your floor needs updating in the kitchen, vinyl will be your saving grace and can truly impact the home in a positive way. Vinyl rolls or tiles are cheap to buy but come in a whole range of styles such as tile, marble, wood and more. Pick out a vinyl floor you like and you can even fit this yourself without having to hire anyone to help you.
Recover your cupboards
Kitchen cupboards are perhaps the biggest design element of a kitchen and if you want to spruce up your kitchen this week you should focus on making improvements to these cupboards. If you have plastic cupboards you can easily find decals online that will transform your cupboards in no time and make them look fresh and modern. If you have wooden cupboards, you can buy some kitchen paint for them and this will help you to spruce up the cupboards and make them look brand new in no time.
Changing your kitchen for the better doesn’t need to be a huge task and there are many ways to make it cheaper. Try these ideas this month.
