Updating and upgrading your kitchen whilst simultaneously adding a touch of ‘pizazz’ into your current kitchen does not to have to cost the earth, and instead there is a variety of subtle changes that you can make in order to turn your kitchen into the modern utopia you strive for.
Continue reading for some stylish yet practical tips for updating and upgrading your kitchen.
Add A Splash Of Color
Constant use of the oven, the hob, the microwave, and the kettle (amongst other appliances) can dull the wallpaper and paint, and therefore reduce the overall aesthetic of a kitchen.
Inject a splash of color, either by painting a bright and bold aqua or turquoise feature wall; or, for an even larger impact, update your kitchen cabinets and install colored door panels. Carry this new color scheme through to the appliances themselves, or for a more cost-effective option, choose the color of your feature wall carefully so that it both contrasts and complements beautifully with your existing appliance design.
Add Trendy Cabinet Handles
One of the most affordable—yet undeniably simple—ways to improve your kitchen design is to upgrade every single one of your kitchen cabinets’ handles.
There is a truly limitless selection of drawer and cabinet handles, and bolder colors and more striking handles are better for a truly modern kitchen aesthetic. If you are particularly adept at painting yourself, you could even consider updating the overall color of your cabinets and drawers, ensuring of course that you use specific paints that are designed for the job.
Add Small Statement Appliances
Even though bespoke worktops and cabinets are certainly one of the main ways to entirely transform the deign aesthetic of your kitchen, this can be an incredibly expensive way to modernize the space.
Instead, therefore, invest in one or two key appliances that are usually stored on the top of the kitchen worktop to contribute to the modern aesthetic you are striving towards. Unique, individual, incredibly modern and stylish online stores, such as those found by looking up cooksboutique.com, stock a fascinating array of every single appliance you could fathom—all in modern and trendy designs.
Use Funky Storage Options
There is a wide array of small changes you can make to the design aesthetic and storage options available in your kitchen to ensure a more modern and updated general appearance, some of which will be at a very low cost.
Use one of your kitchen drawers to store your spices and therefore give you more tabletop room. A more expensive (yet still entirely cost-effective) way to save space and organize your kitchen is to invest in some vertical storage drawers that retract when the doors are closed. You can choose to store your cleaning supplies here, or even pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. Alternatively, floating shelves will also serve this purpose wonderfully.
Updating and upgrading your kitchen and some specific elements within it could even help to increase the overall value of your property.
