Modernising the kitchen on a budget

If your kitchen is in need of a bit of an update, you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to give it a fresh new look. Putting in a little effort and using some creativity and inspiration from Instagram or pin interest posts you can create a kitchen that you will love that isn’t going to break the bank.

Painting or replacing the cupboards                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Painting the kitchen cupboards and adding new door handles is an easy and effective way to create a new look in the kitchen. Choosing from the latest colours available will allow for a contemporary vibrant look. You could even go one step further and replace both the doors and handles of the cabinets

Changing your lighting                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Using light fittings as a bold fixture can completely transform any kitchen to provide a modern space to cook in.

Declutter and improve on kitchen storage                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

A kitchen without enough storage to keep everything organised can become a real problem as the products clutter work tops and make the room look a mess which will distract from the design of the kitchen. Try to keep everyday items stored away in cupboards and only keep eye catching pieces on the worktops as statement pieces.

Liven up the kitchen with accessories                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Use eye catching pieces to brighten the kitchen in an instant. Display favourite items on open shelves and organise worktops so they only display favorite items.


Other ideas could include freshening up the sink, changing the worktops or the flooring updating splash backs and wall colours and adding vibrant artworks and blinds.
