Little Kitchen Makeovers

Little Kitchen Makeovers

When looking to re-inject some style into your kitchen and give it a shiny new makeover, the first piece of advice you could most usefully use first is to have an image in your head of how you want the kitchen to look at the end of the transformation; inspiration can often be taken from looking at images of designer kitchens and picking out things you would like your own kitchen to have. Then, it’s just a case of matching up costs and finding out how to make this kitchen dream come true!

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. Whether you decide on light colours or dark colours for your walls, make sure that they enhance your kitchen as different colour shades can powerfully create an illusion of a bigger or smaller kitchen.

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!

As well as doing this, you can give your kitchen units and doors a quick facelift without having to rip out your whole kitchen and spend a lot more money than you need to! Replacement kitchen cupboard doors make it easy to change the appearance of your kitchen units quickly and cheaply. There are hundreds of materials and styles to choose from, for instance, you could make your kitchen seem much more open plan if you fitted your units with glass-fronted cupboard doors. If you are feeling even more adventurous with your kitchen units, you could even opt in to change their handles. There are lots of modern contemporary options but there are still the traditional looking ones, such as big brass handles available too.

A lot can also be said for the amount of light your kitchen has, whether it be natural or electric, it can hugely improve the way your kitchen looks. There are lots of cool lighting ideas which interior designers have been using such as hidden lighting along the cabinets or big intricate lights to hang above the kitchen island making it even more of a focal centre piece. Lighting combined with mirrors is also a very tactical way of making your kitchen appear larger and more spacious; mirrors can also be lovely features in any room as they help to reflect the light.
