Given the impending lockdown, we’re sure you might be hesitant to spend hundreds or thousands of pounds on designing a brand-new kitchen. However, if you’re still thinking of a makeover, then there are many artful ways to revamp your kitchen without burning a hole in your pocket!
With that in mind, the designers at Saturn Interiors have put together a list of ideas to help you give your kitchen that much needed style lift.
Let’s take a look!
Upgrade Your Lighting
Standard lighting in most homes is quite uniform. Why not mix it up a bit instead and go for pendants and chandeliers?
These lights are not only ideal to change the mood of your room but also a great way to revamp your kitchen and make it look tasteful and sophisticated.
If you’re not sure which type of lighting would be perfect for your kitchen, then contact our kitchen installers for a second opinion, today!
Go for a Lighter Hue
A lighter shade on your cabinets and kitchen walls can immediately brighten up the entire room and make it look both spacious and expensive. What’s more, a lighter colour palette can easily reflect sun rays and conceal those dings, dents and scratches on your cabinets.
While hanging an artwork is an excellent way to elevate the feel of any room in your home, it can do the same for your kitchen too.
Don’t stop yourself from going for something big and bold – it’ll help you create an illusion of a spacious room. Artwork is a great choice for tenants too, as you don’t have the freedom to completely change the look of your kitchen.
Paint the Existing Kitchen Appliances Stainless Steel
Adding stainless steel appliances is also one of the best ways to revamp your kitchen.
However, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have them – simply paint your existing appliances using a paint-on stainless steel finish and there you have it! Just make sure you’re purchasing the right paint based on your appliance and its usage, as this liquid is available in different types.
Hide Your Smaller Appliances
Nothing can bring down your kitchen more than clutter.
That said, it’s best to keep the worktop of your kitchen clean by hiding smaller appliances like blenders, coffee pots and toasters. Since these are small and compact, it’s easy for you to take them out whenever required while maintaining a neat and tidy look throughout.
Clear the Door of Your Fridge
Don’t get us wrong – we too love adding photos of our families, friends and pets on the fridge. However, when the door is plastered with magnets, to-do lists, pictures and takeaway menus it looks cluttered and chaotic.
If you’re someone who isn’t a big fan of a clean fridge door, then you could add a few of your favourite pieces but in a streamlined way.
Store or toss away the rest of it!
Add Potted Plants
To add a hint of freshness in the space, why not place natural elements like potted plants or flowers in your kitchen? That way, you can give your kitchen area an authentic and organic feel.
If you want, you could place herbs at your kitchen’s windowsill. That way, you can add fresh flavours and spices in your meals.
