Redesigning your kitchen on a budget

Redesigning your kitchen on a budget

With the average person in the UK spending over 219 hours per year in the kitchen, it’s not surprising that people get bored of looking at the same view.

 

If you’re looking to give this room a new lease of life, you’ll be pleased to know that it isn’t necessary to spend a fortune to have the desired effect. 

 

Whether you’ve lived in your home for decades or just a few months, here are some tips and tricks for revitalising your kitchen without breaking the bank.

 

New lighting 

Whether it be brighter lightbulbs or a new shade, mixing up the lighting in your kitchen can give it more personality and character. Pendants and chandelier designs can add a touch of class without the hefty price tag.

Colours

The lighter the colours, the larger the space feels. Colours like cream and pale grey also reflect light which means they are perfect for hiding any wear and tear.

Cabinet doors

If your cabinets need a bit more TLC than a lick of paint can give, you could look into refurbishing them! If this isn’t up your street, the implementation of open shelving systems is very ‘in’ at the moment. 

 

De-clutter

Clutter in the kitchen can really bring a space down; have you considered putting appliances such as kettles and toasters away unless you’re using them? This helps to create an illusion of space and gives you more space for cooking and baking!
