Lifestyle | 5 Ways to Revive Your Tired Kitchen

Credit: Houzz
Since moving into the flat I’ve noticed our kitchen looks tired and dull. The time has come to give it a little update and revive it back to its bright, welcoming state and get rid of the lime green colour scheme that the previous owners went for. As we plan to rearrange the rooms in our flat, and eventually turn the kitchen into a bedroom, there is no point in heavily re-decorating or getting a new kitchen. So here are some great tips on how to refresh your kitchen on a budget.

Introduce Fresh Lighting 

The lighting in the kitchen is really important, as you often find that kitchens are designed to be bright and fresh making the room feel clean and open. Lighting has an amazing way of making a room feel a certain way, and by replacing old bulbs or lighting fixtures with brand new, bright features, you’ll instantly notice a change in the feel of the room. You could even look at introducing some softer lighting in the form of a lamp or sidelight, or add battery powered lights under the cabinets for softer lighting in the evening.

Update appliances 

Trading in tired looking kettles and toasters to update the style of your kitchen is a quick way to refresh the whole area, giving it a brand-new look. Kitchen trends change regularly so simply switching from a steel finish to a copper can transform a kitchen from has-been to be-seen.

Replace the Units 

Sometimes smaller changes aren’t quite good enough for giving your kitchen the updated look you’re going for, and it may be time to bite the bullet and replace the main body of your kitchen altogether. This doesn’t always have to be expensive, there are plenty of cheap fitted kitchens available on the market that enable you to choose the right style for your home. The great thing about this option is that you can always opt to paint your cabinets yourself, which in turn will enable you to save even more.

Create a Dining Space 

Kitchens are becoming much more of a social area within the house, with many people now using them for dining and relaxing, rather than just the traditional cooking. By introducing a dining space to your kitchen, you are able to lift the atmosphere and create an area that can be used for much more than it originally was. This new area will lift the atmosphere really nicely.

Add a lick of paint

Over time the colour of a room can begin to lose its appeal. It doesn’t matter what colour you choose, you’ll almost always find that you become bored of the colour and feel like you need something new. It’s amazing just how much the changing of a colour can transform a room, especially within the kitchen and it’s always a really beneficial step to take.

Can you think of another way to freshen up my new kitchen? All ideas are really appreciated.
