As the basis for your kitchen you are best to start by looking at the walls of your current kitchen, deciding on whether that colour is the one you want to work with. There are many different paints and wallpapers available to choose from, even having one tiled wall would be a lovely addition to the room.

The next focus to concentrate on is the kitchen floor; sometimes a dirty kitchen floor just needs a bit of a deep clean to get it up to standard again! However most of the time, kitchen floors have been worn out and it is time to replace them, nevertheless this doesn’t have to be ultra-expensive either! For example, greener flooring materials such as cork are a great alternative as they are cheap and easy to install whilst still having a great marbled finish to them and being extremely comfy underfoot!

Replacement kitchen cupboard doors make it easy to change the appearance of your kitchen units quickly and cheaply.
