Quirky Ways To Update Your Kitchen

Quirky Ways To Update Your Kitchen

When it comes to redecorating your home the kitchen can often be a room that can add increasing value to your property. However, it can also be the hub of your home where you spend a lot of time. But, often a full kitchen remodel can be quite costly, and if this is something that just isn’t in your budget right now, you may think there isn’t anything else that you can do. But actually, small changes can add a quirky touch to your kitchen, and I thought I would share with you what some of them are.

Painting the kitchen doors

One of the first things you can do is consider painting the kitchen doors. This can add an instant refresh to your kitchen without needing to replace anything. Depending on what you go for, it can change the whole look. A lighter kitchen cupboard door could make your kitchen appear brighter and airy. You could even choose to do different colours on the top and bottom ones to add a different look or a quirky touch. It is one of the easiest and most budget-friendly ways of updating your kitchen.

Changing your accessories

If your kitchen is a neutral colour scheme then changing the accessories you have on display could make it feel like there are some new touches. People tend to add colour to their kitchen through their kettle and toaster models, the cups they may have on display or even the work surface chopping or protective boards. Changing these to something different could inspire you to add other features.

Adding feature walls

Another thing to think about would be adding a feature wall to your kitchen. It could be as simple as painting the main wall a different colour that could match the accessories you have on display or a colour in your kitchen that you want to showcase. Other things to think about would be adding pictures to the wall as a photo gallery feature.

Be different with lighting

Maybe you like the idea of creating more light in your kitchen or adding. A modern touch. You might want to change the main light fitting in your kitchen to add a new dynamic or even things like under cupboard led lighting to give it a real modern finish. There is so much you can do with lighting and even changing the colour of the bulb can add a warm glow or a cool finish to the kitchen, which again can transform other colours in your kitchen such as the cupboards. 

Change one big aspect

Finally, if you do have some budget for your kitchen just not enough to replace it entirely then think about changing one big feature of the room. You could add tiles to the walls or a new splash back. You could replace the flooring to give it a different look. Maybe even just changing the cupboard doors in the kitchen to a new style or adding a new table and dining element.

I hope that this has provided you with some inspiration to make some quirky changes to your kitchen.
