Easy Ways to Freshen Up Your Kitchen

It’s getting to that time of year where I want to decorate or update our home in some way – although we always seem to be decorating and updating. One room that is in need of a little TLC is our kitchen. This is the next room on my list after having a massive clear out of toys, clothes and all the other stuff in the boy’s rooms.

If you’re planning to update your kitchen but on a budget, there are a few things you can do that won’t break the bank but will make your kitchen look fabulous.

A lick of paint

Whether you decide to paint your whole kitchen one colour or just paint one single wall, fresh paint will make your kitchen look cleaner, brighter and all brand new. If you have a small kitchen or its a room that doesn’t get much light when it comes to choosing paint you should consider something that will brighten the room up, make it feel warmer instead of making it look dark and smaller.

A splashback

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how you could incorporate decorative glass within your home. One of the things I mentioned was about how you could add a glass splashback to your kitchen. A glass splashback would be a great addition to any kitchen in need of a makeover. It can be made to your own unique design and will protect your walls from food staining and water damage.

A change of accessories

Simply changing your small kitchen appliances such as your kettle and toaster may just give your kitchen that much-needed update. You could also add matching canisters, tea towels, utensils, cutlery, plates and more. There is so much choice out there your kitchen can be just as unique as you are.

A change of handles and switches

If you fancy adding a little twist to your kitchen you could replace your cupboard handles and door handles. This would freshen up your cupboards and cheaply too. You could also change the plug sockets and switches within your kitchen too. Another thing you could add to your kitchen is LED downlights to the underneath of your cupboards.

Are you planning on updating your kitchen soon? If so, I’d love to hear more in the comments below.
