The Kitchen Facelift

Investing in a completely new kitchen can be extremely expensive – but in reality, there are plenty of quick and easy things you can do to give your kitchen a new lease of life.

 

  • Start with the small repairs: fix any of the cabinets, and replace broken hinges, stays and catches. Little changes, like replacing the handles with something new will make a huge amount of difference at an extremely low cost.

  • A lick of paint: If you want to give your kitchen a completely new look without breaking the bank, then painting your existing cabinets is the way to go – all you need is some paint, and a spare afternoon!

  • New cabinet doors: If you want to give your kitchen a completely new look without breaking the bank, then painting your existing cabinets is the way to go – all you need is some paint, and a spare afternoon!

  • The Next Challenge: experienced DIY’ers might also want to consider replacing their kitchen worktops, or even building a DIY kitchen island.


    Redecorating

    If you’re on a tight budget and want maximum ‘bang for your buck’ there’s no better way to go than redecorating. Repainting or changing the wallpaper is a great way to update your décor, revitalise your home and can completely transform the look and feel of any room. The best part about redecorating is that it doesn’t take a lot of time – you can comfortably do all but the largest rooms (including a couple of coats of paint) in a single weekend.

     

    As Every Door Closes, a New One Opens

    You only get one chance to make a first impression, and the same is true of your home.

    Outside: The front door is the first thing most people notice about any property, and if it’s looking a little old, tired or dated, then replacing it with something new will make a huge difference to the exterior of your home.

    Inside: Inside the house, choosing the right doors is just as important. Glazed doors can be used to maximise light, whilst painted wooden doors can help to complement the interior décor of your home.

     

    Accessorize

    Small jobs and finishing touches will make a huge difference to the overall look and feel of your home. Weekend DIY and woodworking, like a new homemade piece of furniture, a window box, or a new toy chest will all help to breathe new life into your property.

    The possibilities are pretty much endless – take a look though the DIY, How To and Guides section of our blog for inspiration.
