The kitchen is one of the most social rooms in the home. Some may say it’s the central hub, as families congregate to eat their meals and we couldn’t agree more!
We also know that kitchens are one of the most expensive rooms to be updated, which means many kitchen spaces end up becoming stale and outdated as people simply can’t afford to refurbish their entire room.
But what if we told you that you didn’t need to buy an entirely new kitchen to keep your home looking modern? Here are our top 4 tips on how to make your kitchen look refreshed without having to spend a fortune!
Replace Cupboard Doors
Rather than buying an entire new unit unnecessarily, why not give your cupboards a facelift by simply adding new doors.
If you don’t want to buy new doors, you can always give your existing ones a lick of paint, or even just change the handles. It’s quite interesting how different a room can look when all that has been changed is the doors on your cupboards.
Upgrade the Flooring
Flooring can quickly become worn and faded, especially as it will experience heavy footfall with being in one of the most used rooms in the home.
Rather than having to spend money every couple of years to replace your flooring, why not invest in a durable, natural stone floor? This type of flooring is incredibly durable and ages much better than the old linoleum that you had down before.
Add a Splashback
Adding a splashback on the wall where it will meet your counter top or cooker is an attractive way to protect you wall from the inevitable splashes of food that occur when cooking.
Not only will they be a lot easier to clean when splashes do occur, it will create a beautiful eye-catching element to your kitchen.
Replace Your Worktop
Just like with cupboards, people seem to believe that in order to get a new worktop, they need to buy a whole new counter. Whether the worktop they currently own has become worn or scratched or simply just look dated, there are other options available.
As leading providers of granite worktops in Cheshire, we’re here to dispel this notion right now. Buying a whole new counter just for a worktop is going to cost you a lot, and we know that many people are trying to keep the cost of any refurbishment they do to a minimum.
So why not keep those trust old counters in place and just invest in a new worktop instead? New worktops can be shaped and measured to fit your existing counters!
We hope that our ideas have inspired you to tackle an out of date kitchen in your home. Refurbishments don’t have to cost a lot and you’d be surprised how much a small change can affect the atmosphere in an entire room.
