The kitchen is the very heart and soul of the house and it is where we go to create and enjoy stunning recipes for our family for a quiet night in or even a dinner party.
Your kitchen might be looking a little dull and boring after a year of being stuck in the same four walls – and this is why this year we want to share some of the simple ways you can brighten up and improve the space.
Here are some super simple and low cost ways to improve and vamp up your kitchen this year.
Add some decorative art
The first thing you might want to consider when decorating your kitchen this year is a few pieces of artwork. From a painting of your favourite animal to a photograph of a sunset; there are lots of choices for artwork and you might just find something amazing to brighten up your kitchen. Artwork can make a massive difference to your kitchen and it will also provide a nice talking point for people who come to visit.
Invest in new doors
If you want to change your kitchen design quite drastically without spending the earth – new kitchen doors are an ideal choice. New kitchen doors will change the whole look and feel of your kitchen without the need to completely replace your fittings. For a serious quick job this weekend, you can drastically change the design of your kitchen and wow your family and your guests.
Display fresh flowers
If you are looking for a super simple way to brighten up your kitchen today – flowers are a beautiful choice. Flowers will not only bring some colour and texture to the room but if you choose flowers such as lilies, you have the added bonus of a fresh floral scent through the whole home every day. Flowers or even houseplants make a huge difference to any room and they bring warmth and vibrancy.
Upgrade your doorknobs
For those of you who want to have a simple weekend project – upgrading the doorknobs on your kitchen cupboards can be a brilliant idea. You can buy a pack of copper or rose gold doorknobs or handles on Amazon and they can make your drab old kitchen cupboards look more modern and sleek.
If you don’t want to spend the money or the time to get rid of your kitchen doors and replace them – one easy answer is door decals. Door decals come in many different patterns such as wood, marble, and matte colour and will make your kitchen look amazing and fresh. A navy with rose gold door knobs can be a stunning feature of offset white walls and a bright grey floor.
Consider a feature wall
One way to quickly make a change to your kitchen this year is to make a feature wall and paint it a bright or dark colour. If your kitchen is mainly white – a bright and bold colour choice can really help lift the space and breathe some life into it for the summer. Popular choices for the kitchen are yellow, green, navy, pink, and pale blue. Consider looking online for some inspiration and have fun choosing a beautiful colour for your wall.
