5 Fun Ways to Upgrade Your Kitchen

by Guest on Dec 1, 2016

Is your kitchen starting to look a bit old and tired? The kitchen is a work area and can quickly go from that lived-in look to a worn-out look if you are not careful. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it is one of the first things people notice when they visit your home so it is important to spruce it up from time to time.

You also do not want to look at the same boring kitchen, day after day. Make some changes now and then, shake things up and breathe some new life into your kitchen. You do not have to gut it and completely remodel everything. It is time to upgrade your kitchen.

Fortunately, there are a number of fun ways to do that, without breaking the bank. Here are my top 5 fun ways to upgrade your kitchen.

Play with Textures

Be bold and creative, mix things up a little. You do not need to stick to just one or two finishes and surfaces. Use steel, wood, ceramic, stone, granite and a range of fabrics to liven things up.

Go for strong contrasts to make a statement. Experiment with colours and shades. You can even mix and match old and new, there really are no rules.

Add memorable details such as art pieces, a wall mural or decals. A splash back is a fun place to create a dramatic impact.

Don’t forget lighting for a bit of ambiance and effect.

Treat Yourself to New Appliances

Most of your appliances are on display so make them count. Appliances can make or break the appearance of a kitchen. There is such a great selection and variety of styles available these days that you can really have fun with them.

I treated myself to a few new appliances recently and it really made my day. They look great and are functional at the same time.

Go for Fresh, Clean White

Nothing says clean and new like white, especially in a kitchen.  Dramatic white tiles, white countertops and appliances create a striking effect and make the room look much larger and more open. You can add the occasional splash of colour here and there for contrast but the overriding theme must be white. Some of my favourite kitchens are pure white.

Be Bold with Colour

Ok, I know I just said go for white but if that is not your thing, go to the opposite extreme. Mix up all the colours you can find and have a bright, busy and appealing kitchen. Go for a few main impact colours but don’t be timid with really going all out and incorporating many different colours. The end result can be really interesting and appealing. Be brave.

Use Open Shelving

Open shelving will create the illusion of space if cleverly used. Try to avoid too much clutter and keep it neat at all times. Use beautiful pieces and collect new ones along the way to display in your open shelves. Make it a functional feature.

Many people hate the idea of open shelving and yes, it is a bit more dusting, but don’t dismiss it out of hand. There are some beautiful kitchens that feature open shelving. Browse a few photographs online to get a few ideas.

Well I trust that gave you a little bit of inspiration. Look around, look at magazines or browse online. There are so many great ideas and different ways you can upgrade your kitchen. Add your own style and personal touches. Don’t be afraid of change. Be confident and imaginative and the results will be worth it.
