Low cost and little hassle for a new gorgeous kitchen. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

The kitchen is the heart of the home, so it’s natural we want it to be a welcoming place. If the appliances are in good working order, the cabinets are in good shape and there is no need for structural changes, you can refresh the look of your kitchen in a few simple ways.

Small improvements like buying a new worktop, changing the window treatments and painting the cabinets can transform your kitchen into a lovely place to cook and entertain.

  • Change the look of your cabinets

Paint your cabinets in hunter green or barn red using a 4” brush that gives texture and the appearance of real wood. If you’d rather not paint, a dark teak or cherry stain will also have a great effect. You can improve the look by changing the hardware on your cabinets and drawers with new, beautifully designed ones.

  • Change the worktop to granite

The worktop is a central part of your kitchen. Although it is considered a luxury product, a granite worktop will make your investment well worthwhile. Stone worktops are not only beautiful, but are also ideal for food preparation.

  • Ad style with window treatments

When it comes to dressing your windows, you have an amazing choice of styles, textures and colours. No matter what your preference – the elegant Venetian or the classic roller type – a new blind can add style to your kitchen with very little effort.
By carefully selecting colours, materials and by doing the work yourself, you can pull off an amazing kitchen makeover for far less money than you might imagine. An average refit will only take a couple of days and cause little discomfort to you and your family.

You will see that updating your kitchen instead of buying a new one will not only save you time and money, but will also give you the chance to practice your DIY skills. Just stay within your budget, put your creativity to work and have fun.
