Want to inject a little style into the heart of your home? Here’s how you can update your kitchen on the cheap
How to revamp your kitchen when you’re on a budget
Whether your kitchen hasn’t had a lick of paint in what feels like forever, or you’re not financially ready to put your home through a full-scale renovation, up the style ante with these fast and fabulous ideas for transforming this space on a budget.
Add pops of colour
As a common area, the colours of your kitchen should be inviting. When choosing a hue for the walls, go for one that complements the existing colour scheme of your home as a whole. If you have a tired display cabinet, think about painting its back wall with colour for an instant and inexpensive revamp.
Also, think about investing in a bold splashback to brighten and invigorate a boring kitchen – without the hefty bill.
Update your table decor
Still want more? Incorporate further colour into your kitchen by updating your table decor. Matching plates, table runners and seat cushions add decorative charm and help guests to feel comfortable. Finish off with a bouquet of colourful blooms.
Make more space
Clearing clutter and implementing space-saving designs is an effective and inexpensive way to decorate your kitchen.
Place dividers in your drawers to separate sections and categorise your items, making them easier to find and think about screwing hooks into the inside of your cabinet drawers to frequently used small items, such as bottle openers and can openers.
Also, if you install slide-out shelves in your kitchen cabinets, this trick increases the usable space in your kitchen cabinets so you’ll be able to keep them organised.
