How To Reinvent Your Kitchen On A Budget

So you’d love to update your kitchen but you just don’t have the funds? It’s a common problem. And one that we can definitely help with. Read on to discover 5 affordable ways you can breathe new life into the heart of your home.


1. Paint cupboard fronts

If you’re really serious about a complete new look for your kitchen, but you just can’t stretch to brand new units, this really is your only option. If you have the time and the patience and you’re committed to doing it properly, it’s certainly something you can do yourself. If not it might be a good idea to look into a local business who will paint them for you. Ideally find somewhere that will professionally spray them as that will ensure the best quality finish.

2. Replace knobs

This is a quick and easy way to instantly update any kitchen space. The options are never ending, so you may find yourself spoilt for choice. We are currently loving gold and brass finishes. You might even consider going all out and replacing your tap too to match?

3. Re-tile

How about changing the tiles on your cooker splashback to a more modern style? A simple white metro tile with black grout is really on trend and makes a slick, striking statement.

4. Refresh your accessories

Sometimes all you need is a bit of an accessory revamp. Honestly the amount of joy a new chopping board or two can bring!

Consider a statement vase for your kitchen window sill and fill it with fresh flowers, or pop a few framed prints up on the wall. Scented candles make a real difference to the ambience of your kitchen too and a new hand wash and lotion adds a touch of luxury.
