5 Ways To Transform Your Kitchen

5 Ways To Transform Your Kitchen


AD – This is a collaborative post

We are in the middle of planning a few alterations in our kitchen. Although I love the countryside/farmhouse theme that we currently have, we could do with some new unit fronts to brighten the place up. Our existing ones are tired and need to be replaced. As a family of four, we will be trying our best to do the revamp on a budget and here are a few ways we will be updating the kitchen space.


Updating Fronts

A really easy way to update the kitchen is to replace your existing fronts on the units. This is something we have planned for the near future and I know it will make a huge difference to the overall look of the room. You can get some really inexpensive replacements to achieve the look you desire. I think we will be looking at a shaker style to keep in with the country/farmhouse style that we have now.
There is also the option of replacing the entire kitchen cabinets if you want to start over, LionsHome have some package deals where you can buy several together.


New Fixtures and Fittings

As time goes by and lots of wear and tear from daily use, taps and sinks can start to look really dull. If not cared for properly, they can become worn and damaged from limescale. The chrome coating can start to look dowdy and wear off leaving fixtures that no longer shine. There are some really good deals on taps and sinks and so many different options to choose from such as mixer taps, fountain, lever controlled, twist controlled and so on.
Sinks also come in so many choices such as sinks with drainers, some without, stainless steel or enamel. The list is endless.

Update your wall tiles

Tiles are a great way to make a statement. If you have smaller tiles like us, you could replace them with a larger style tile to create a feature wall. Perhaps use something super glossy such as metro style tiles or for a rustic look you could use textured tiles that give a wood effect. Another look that I am fond of is a mix match of tiles using different colours that compliment each other.


Add a splash of colour

A super quick and simple way to give your kitchen an uplift is to introduce some colour. That doesn’t necessarily mean having to paint a wall in the boldest colour out there. Instead, you could buy some colourful appliances or add some pretty accessories to brighten things up a little. You can get bins, storage jars and more in all sorts of shades.
I am going to give my existing pine table and chairs a makeover and paint the legs white. Perhaps you could do the same with your chairs or stools?

Buy some new Kitchen textiles

Another fab way of giving your kitchen a new look is to buy some new kitchen textiles. I love having a little change of theme and often buy some new oven gloves and tea towels. There are many places that often have kitchen accessories that match up to the tea towels so you can have a whole new theme going on.

    Our kitchen is on our to-do list this year – it’s almost 20 years old & we know there’s at least 2 layers of tiles in it 😱 It’s going to be a big job… #MMBC

    Lovely ideas. For me, looking past the kitchen exterior and investing in some good quality new pots, pans, cutlery, etc. made me enjoy my kitchen a lot more. I got rid of a lot of the old contents and it is great to see how much more room I now have in my cupboards. Also, a fresh display of flowers really adds a homely feel to a kitchen in my opinion.

    I’d love to reface my cabinets too but it’s not in my budget right now. I just buy new kitchen towels and pot holders occasionally to brighten the room. Looking forward to seeing your updates! #MMBC

    These are all really great tips, thank you. I’ve recently moved and everything is brown or every dark. Including the units which makes the room look rather dull. So I think I’ll definitely be updating the doors/draws.
