Whether you’re a master chef in the making or an apprentice, the kitchen is used regularly. And with the cooler months here, you might be spending more time than ever in there. This week our Hubbies give you some handy kitchen renovation ideas to turn it into a focal point of your home.
Paint cabinets: An effective way to change the whole look of your kitchen is changing its colour. Painting gives your tired old kitchen a modern makeover and depending on the texture of paint you chose, you can give the illusion of a more expensive wood.
Cabinet knobs and handles: While cabinet handles can seem irrelevant in comparison to larger items in the kitchen, you’ll be surprised at the difference changing them can make. Depending on the look you’re going for, you can simply replace old handles with new ones or choose larger handles with more elaborate details to make a statement.
Tiling: Re-tiling the kitchen can make even the oldest of kitchens look new again. If you don’t feel confident enough to redo the entire kitchen, why not just re-tile the area around the cook top. Contemporary looks include a feature tile or feature design in the middle of this area.
Blinds: Cooking leaves the kitchen home to a myriad of odours and curtains will eventually absorb these. Swapping curtains to blinds might be an easier-to-clean and more practical option.
Shelves: Kitchen cabinets are heavy and make a small kitchen look smaller. Replacing cabinets with shelves will ensure you’ll be able to find all your kitchen appliances easier, minimise counter clutter and give the illusion of a kitchen with more space.
