Renovating your kitchen is a very big commitment and can take a long time, so if you’re looking for a quicker fix, then you’re in the right place! We’re here with 5 ways to transform your kitchen without a full renovation, and these changes can make a really big difference to the look of your kitchen. Get ready to fall in love with your kitchen again!
Paint Your Kitchen Cupboards
The first major change you can make to your kitchen that is also very affordable is to paint your kitchen cupboards. With just a tin of paint, brushes and some sand paper, you can completely change the look of your kitchen.
Take all of your cabinets off and lay them out on the floor on newspaper. Use this opportunity to repair any damages with filler. Sand down the side that you will be painting and then wipe everything down to remove any dust. From here, make sure that you invest in a paint that has built in primer, then take a paintbrush and carefully paint your cupboards. Keep the layers nice and thin so that they dry quickly and you get a more even finish. Allow them all to fully dry (probably overnight) and then do the second coat. You may need to do a few more coats as well depending on the colour your cabinets originally were and the colour you are trying to get them to.
This will take a few days to finish but the transformation can be incredible!
Get Some Colourful Appliances
Next up, you can get yourself some colourful appliances for the kitchen. If you toaster, kettle and microwave are looking a bit worse for wear, swap them out for colourful options and watch your kitchen come to life. You can then add a few more finishing touches to really tie these new appliances into the room, like a matching utensil holder and some candles.
Go for something really bright, tone things down with pastels or even go for a bold pattern! There are so many options out there for you to choose from, so you certainly will be spoilt for choice!
Invest In Custom Blinds
Our next tip is for you to invest in custom blinds. The window dressings in a room can make such a huge difference to the overall look, so if you have old blinds or sad looking curtains, the whole room will suffer as a result. Swap them out for some new beautiful blinds and the whole room will look different.
Working with a small, family run business like a company for blinds Ruislip based will mean they will give you expert advice and also help you find the right product at the right price. Once you’ve replaced your blinds, you won’t believe that you kept your old ones for so long!
Change Up Your Lighting
Our final tip is to change up your lighting! If you have really old or drab light bulbs and light fixtures, your kitchen is very likely to feel dark and dingy, especially in the evening. So, swap out your old lightbulbs for bright energy saving alternatives and then swap your old light shades for some spangly new ones. If you have a breakfast bar, get some long hanging lights to attach to the ceiling for a beautiful touch. This would also look great if you have a dining table in your kitchen to make it a focal point! Prepare for your kitchen to shine when you change up your lighting.
There are so many things you can do to transform your kitchen, with some options not costing much at all!
