A FRESH COAT OF PAINT

Your cabinets and drawers are a focal point in the kitchen so are usually the first thing people want to update. But often, your cabinetry is in good shape, and it’s just the exterior which looks a little worse for wear.  An easy way to fix this is with a fresh coat of paint. Stick to neutral tones to keep the space looking light, bright and clean. Another way to update your cabinetry is to replace the handles and knobs. While this is just a small change, it can make a significant impact!

GO BOLD WITH THE SPLASHBACK

While a splashback’s primary purpose is to protect the walls from mess, it can also dramatically change the feel and style of your kitchen. There are endless options when choosing a new splashback and you’d be surprised at how affordable and easy it can be to change. Your splashback is where you can have a little fun and be bold so make sure you do your research and get some inspiration for what you want.

 

CLEAR THE CLUTTER

You’d be amazed at how a little organisation can change the feel of your kitchen. Before you start any kitchen reno, it’s a good idea to do a clean out of your drawers and cupboards. Once it’s time to put everything back into place try and keep the items you use every day to the front. It might be a good idea to invest in some storage solutions such as cutlery & utensil trays for your drawers and racks for the pantry.

LESS IS MORE WHEN ACCESSORISING

When adding accessories in the kitchen, keep in mind that less is more. The kitchen is a functional space and a place you do not want to clutter. Adding a touch of greenery and stacking some cooking books in the corner can be enough to make the space more inviting without overdoing it. Small clusters of appliances are also a nice way to draw the eye to spot you’d like to highlight.
