The kitchen is the heart of the home, whether it’s a cosy room with a sink and a couple of cupboards for you to prepare your family’s meals, or a grand room where everyone spends most of their time conversing, working, experimenting, or just taking 5 minutes to read a book!
Regardless of the dynamic of your kitchen, it should always be a fun place to be and a reflection of your personality, inspiring you to create a new culinary masterpieces. Unfortunately, it can often be very expensive to completely overhaul your kitchen and it might see you cooking on a camping stove for a week or two while the work goes on!
There are, however, many ways of sprucing up your kitchen to bring it into the 21st century that won’t break the bank or take weeks to complete! A new set of doors and drawer fronts can make a huge difference to the appearance of your kitchen with very little outlay, whilst giving you a huge choice of different styles and colours!
Worktops can take a real beating over the years and, along with cupboard doors, they are one of the most common culprits for making kitchens look tired and outdated. By replacing that old scratched beech effect or speckled beige worktop with a nice new sparkling white or black granite effect number you can create a fresh and premium feeling kitchen in a matter of hours!
Whilst worktops and cupboard doors are a great way of updating the style of your kitchen, it’s important not to forget the little touches. Replacing that old aluminium sink with a lovely reclaimed Belfast sink and installing a funky new set of taps will leave you smiling every time you wash up, whilst a swanky new oven and hob will certainly re-inject the fun and pizazz into cooking your family meals every day! Similarly, new tiles and a fresh lick of paint will not only lift the ‘vibe’ in your kitchen, but improve the amount of natural light as well, making your ‘hub’ feel that little bit bigger and brighter!
However you decide to spruce up your kitchen, there are a range of professionals who can advise you on what’s available within your budget and they will and even carry out the work for you!
