The kitchens is often called the heart of the home, so you’ll want a space that’s not only functional and safe, but that feels fresh. Trends and seasons are constantly changing; re-decorating every time a new colour trends pops up or a little wear and tear sets in would require a huge investment of both time and money – so here are 5 tips on how to instantly revamp your kitchen with a minimum of effort.
Cupboard and drawers take up the majority of space in most kitchens, an easy way to freshen them up is by simply switching their handles. It’s a brilliant and remarkably simple way to add pops of colour and tie the rooms design together, incorporating styles and colours to match the surrounding décor. If you decide it’s time to have a whole new kitchen (lucky you) then the fittings are all down to you from the word go, we’re happy to incorporate any personal elements into your design.
Worktops in a kitchen are the area that face the most direct contact. Over time they’ll start to look a little battered and lifeless, or just not to your style anymore. As worktops are one of the most visible surfaces in the kitchen, renewing them completely change the feel of the room, often making it look like you’ve had a completely new kitchen installed. You might just want to upgrade from laminate to wood or stone or completely swap it out for something new. Alresford Interiors have access to thousands of worktops in countless styles, so you’ll be able to find the perfect one for you.
Windows are a key focal point to any room, bringing in light and flooding the room with life. The eyes are instantly drawn to sources of light, so make sure it’s a pleasant sight. Have those curtains seen better days? Is that vase outdated? Why not freshen up the window edge with some updated pieces and switch out old blind or curtains for clean, new ones.
What goes on behind the cupboard doors may not seem like an issue, but the functionality of a kitchen is just as important as the look. Adding some nifty storage systems to your kitchen can make the use of a kitchen feel more luxurious. You can add these mechanisms to a new kitchen of course, most of our clients incorporate them into the design, but as well you may be able to adapt them to your existing kitchen as most conform to a universal size and scale.
The final tip is an obvious way to spice up any room, add a splash of paint! Even if it’s a similar, or even the same colour, it can just make the room feel and look fresh, getting rid of dulled colours, smudges and marks. It’s also one of the easiest and cheapest ways to update a kitchen or any room. For more advice, see our blog on Kitchen colours that will never go out of style.
