The kitchen is the heart of the home, as they say, and if this is true for you, chances are it is one of the most frequently used rooms in the house.
In recent years, kitchen renovations have become increasingly popular, with more and more homeowners opting for completely overhauling their kitchens for a fresh new look. However, that isn’t the only way to give your kitchen a new lease of life. There are many smaller changes you can make to rejuvenate your kitchen.
Replace your ceiling lighting. This is a simple and effective way to give your kitchen a new look without significant work. If your kitchen flooring looks a little dated, it might be time to think about replacing it. If you have laminate flooring, it will be relatively easy to replace. You will need to remove the old laminate and lay down the new one. If you have tiles, Vinyl Flooring or other floorings, there may be some preparation required for the new flooring to be laid down, but this will still take less time than redoing your entire kitchen.
Painting your cabinets
Painting your cabinets is easy to give the whole room a facelift. If you’re not happy with the colour or style of your cabinets, there are many colours and styles of paints available for you to choose from. You can choose to have them professionally sprayed, paint them yourself using specialist cabinet paint, or cover them in a fabulous material that is easily applied and removed.
Recover counter tops
If you want to update your kitchen without undergoing a complete renovation, one of the easiest ways to do this is by recovering your countertops. You can either purchase new countertops or recover them with stain-resistant laminate. If you’re looking for an even cheaper option, there are also plenty of DIY tutorials that show you how to recover your old countertops with new moulding and paint.
Update your lighting
One of the simplest and most effective ways to refresh your kitchen is updating your lighting. Replace your ceiling lighting with a statement light fitting, or even add under cupboard lighting using LED light strips or even install spotlights for added light and wow!
Change door handles
Door handles are arguably the most essential part of your kitchen. They are the first thing you see when you enter, and they are one of the things that make an impression on guests.
Changing door handles for both room doors and cabinet doors can instantly transform the look and feel of your kitchen.
It doesn’t matter which style of handle you choose; as long as it complements what is already there, it will improve your home. For example, if you have a modern kitchen theme heavy on whites or greys, opting for silver door handles can give it a vintage or shabby chic look. On the other hand, if you have a traditional or country-style theme in your kitchen, choosing gold door handles will complement this design perfectly.
