Revamp Your Kitchen Without Blowing The Budget


Kitchen Renovation

Putting our own personal stamp on our home is important for our creative mind, happiness, and even mental health. As we grow, learn and change, our style and preferences also evolve. During self-growth, we often desire to switch up our lifestyles and try new things – one of the first being home decor.

As the home hub, the average person spends around 400 hours in the kitchen each year. This time is spent cooking, baking, connecting with family and friends, and in morning reflection. It’s essential that this area reflects our lifestyle and personality and is beneficial to our mood. Revamping your kitchen sounds like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to blow the budget! We’ll discuss the top hacks for redecorating and reorganizing your cookhouse without breaking the bank.

Change Your Sink Accessories

It sounds small, but changing your kitchen sink accessories can make a major change in the look of the room! There are so many styles of taps to choose from, each adding a distinctive character to your kitchen, from sleek and modern stainless steel to traditional copper or matte black contemporary.

Match your soap dispenser, plug and drain, and dish rack, and you’ll have a whole new look while barely lifting a finger!

Add Some New Lighting

The style of lighting in the home can make a huge difference to the overall look and feel. Renew your kitchen with an updated style of lighting to create a whole new ambiance to enjoy your early morning coffee.

From ceiling spotlights to bare industrial hanging bulbs or oversized shades, there are so many options to choose from. Use your lighting as a statement piece by positioning them above your table or kitchen island. If you want to try something completely new, but rewiring is out of your budget, try investing in some rechargeable LEDs to get the look without the price!

Replace Your Kitchen Worktops

You don’t have to replace the entirety of the kitchen fittings to get the most out of your kitchen makeover. Replacing your kitchen worktops can do the job!

The cost of replacing kitchen worktops is fully dependent on your materials of choice. Kitchen worktops can cost between £200-£1,200 to replace, with laminate on the lower end of the pricing spectrum and granite on the higher end.

Change The Handles And Fittings

You may not have it in the budget to renew your entire kitchen cabinetry; however, you don’t need to! Switching your cabinet handles and fittings can add an entirely new feel to a kitchen without the extra fuss. As small as they are, they can make a huge difference to an overall look – as the old saying goes: ‘It’s all in the details”.

IKEA, ASDA, and The Range often host a huge selection of home decor, including cabinet fixtures, to give your kitchen a revamp for a fraction of the price.

Add A Fresh Lick Of Paint

Although painting can often be a faff, you don’t have to paint an entire room to get the effects you’re looking for. Simply adding a splash of paint to one feature wall, the kitchen cabinets, the island, or furniture can make a huge difference.

Choose a focal point you’d want to draw the eye too, add color to it and then finish with matching decor and appliances. Remember, research into a color has shown it has an effect on mood, so be sure to choose a color to represent how you want to feel while utilizing the room.

Add Some Greenery

It sounds simple, but adding plants to a room can really bring it alive – without burning a hole in your pockets.

Invest in some low-maintenance houseplants, such as a snake or spider plant, Pothos, or a coffee plant, to elevate the look without the added fuss.

Switch Up Your Furniture Or Appliances

Got a seating area in your kitchen? Try investing in a new table or chairs to elevate the atmosphere. Choose chairs to match the focal color of the room to add a fun, artsy feel, or stick to neutrals and wooden textures to bring it back to basics.

If you don’t have a seating area, why not update your appliances? Switching up your toast, kettle, and a microwave can be an easy way to bring a new style to your scullery, from sleek stainless steel to rustic, vintage creams or duck egg blue, or even something bright and fun.
