Have you been longing to revamp your lacklustre kitchen? Well, look no further. We all know that the kitchen is the heart of the home and therefore, it should be well kept. Upgrading your kitchen doesn’t need to be an expensive or tedious task. In this article, you will be presented with simple, yet effective ways to upgrade your old kitchen without breaking the bank (or your back)!
Selecting Good Quality Washable Paint
Your walls are the foundation of your entire house. Determining which colour to paint the walls ultimately comes down to preference and personal taste, however, using premium quality paint is essential. You will want to use paint that that is robust and washable. The kitchen is a high-moisture area and with all the grease and food that gets splattered on to the walls day-to-day, you should be able to clean them without worrying about the colour fading. Vinyl silk paints are a good option as they are durable and resistant to moisture.
Replace Old Handles and Knobs
You may think that your cabinets and cupboards need to be completely removed and replaced, but sometimes it is the handles that need updating. They may be broken, fading in colour or perhaps they no longer look modern. Handles and knobs are widely accessible and relatively easy to install. This is an easy way to create the illusion of having brand new cabinets and you’ll be surprised by how a small change can make a huge difference!
You may not have noticed how overtime the tiles behind your sink, stove or countertops have become worn-out as they have been exposed to water and high temperatures. The good news is that there are so many options to fix this. Repainting your tiles with tile paint is an inexpensive and simple option. Alternatively, if you want a whole new look, you can use self-adhesive backsplash tiles. These have become a popular option, especially among renters, as you can choose from trending styles such as faux brick, glass and marble and can change them at any time.
Similar to the backsplash tiles, you can purchase self-adhesive countertop film. There a huge number of options from marble, wood and granite, so there is always an option for you. Best of all, if you get bored of a particular style, its simple to remove. However, if you are feeling creative and have some extra time on your hands, you can also paint over your old countertops to resemble the style of your choice.
An Eye-Catching Centrepiece
A centrepiece on your kitchen island or dining table is a great way to elevate the room. It could be as simple as a candle display or even a floral arrangement. A centrepiece that matches the aesthetic of the room pulls the whole room together. You can be as minimalistic or flamboyant as you want, as long as it is eye-catching and most of all, makes you feel proud of your kitchen.
