Many people don’t have the budget for a full kitchen make over from floor to ceiling but that doesn’t mean that they don’t fancy a bit of a change. Here are a few simple and stylish ideas which can help to give your kitchen a fresh new look.
1 – Paint your kitchen cabinets. This can make an enormous difference and give your kitchen a completely new look using nothing more than a can of paint. The kitchen cabinets are the most visual thing in the room after all. These days you can get paints which are specially designed for use in the kitchen so be sure to use them. These are available in a variety of colors and are resistant to most stains and household products.
2 – Change the handles and knobs. Even if you don’t fancy painting your kitchen cabinets you can give it a new look by simply changing the handles or knobs. There are lots of different styles and types of handle or knob which can be colorful, original or classic.
3 – Change your chairs. If your kitchen is large enough for a table and chairs then you can give it a new look by simply changing the chairs. These have an important role in the décor of a room. Choose something modern and colorful or traditional in keeping with the new look you want to achieve.
4 – Chance your faucets. It’s surprising how a new faucet can change the appearance of the kitchen sink and therefore the kitchen. Choose something bold and daring (if you dare) with a bold red or black color or something more original in keeping with the rest of the room.
5 – Paint your walls. You don’t even have to paint the whole wall in a kitchen to change the appearance; just the visible part above the counter tops can make a big difference. Remember to use special paints which are washable and suitable for tiles (if necessary) for a long lasting finish.
6 – Attach some wall coverings. There are some fabulous self adhesive wall coverings available these days which are really affordable and easy to use. They are particularly useful just above the counter tops (for those who don’t want to paint them) and are available in a variety of colors as well as metallic effects, quotes, landscapes and images.
7 – Have fun with lighting. LED rope lights beneath the kitchen wall cupboards can add an interesting amount of light in even the darkest corners of the kitchen. How about an led light strip too – they provide plenty of light in the busiest room of the house yet are very economical and energy efficient.
8 – Throw in a mat. What could be quicker and easier to give your kitchen a lift than the addition of a colorful floor mat? You could put one close to the kitchen sink or, if you have a kitchen table you could put it beneath there. Not only will it look stylish but it will also add a certain amount of comfort.
9 – Call time on your old clock. A nice, large industrial style clock can quickly add a whole new dimension to a bare kitchen wall. Perhaps you’d prefer something bold and colorful, it’s up to you.
10 – Don’t forget the trash can. Every kitchen has one but instead of being only one of the most functional pieces in the kitchen it could also add an element of fun. Don’t hide it away, pick a vibrant color and leave it exposed.
