3 Ways To Breathe New Life Into Your Kitchen Design

If you want to update your kitchen without going to the expense of completely renovating the entire room and installing a brand new kitchen, there are several courses of action you can take. This post will concentrate on three options: replacing your kitchen unit doors, replacing your kitchen worktop or adding new kitchen canisters. Obviously, these suggestions vary in the amount of effort and money required to bring them to fruition, but hopefully they will give you some inspiration. These are merely starting points and you will be able to come up with other ways of improving your own kitchen.

Let’s look at the three ideas in more detail:

Kitchen unit doors are used frequently and, as a result, can often look tired and past their best relatively quickly. Rather than replace the entire kitchen unit, a better option might be to replace only the unit doors. You might use this as an opportunity to inject some colour into your kitchen design (the doors don’t have to be the same colour as the unit carcasses), or it might allow you to add some contemporary door handles. Either way, new kitchen unit doors will make a big difference to the appearance of the room.

If your kitchen unit doors are still in good shape, you might be able to enhance your kitchen design by simply replacing the door handles. This is a good way of making kitchen units seem more contemporary that they really are.

Although it is more costly that the first suggestion and it might lead to greater disruption, replacing your kitchen worktops can have a massive impact to both the appearance and functionality of your kitchen. Laminate worktops, for example, can look shabby after a few years. Replacing them with a different type of worktop can add a completely different feel to the room. If your kitchen suffers from a lack of natural light, try adding a light worktop to reflect back into the room what light you have.

The kitchen worktop represents a massive amount of your kitchen’s surface area. It is one of the most prominent elements of a kitchen and therefore any improvements you can make will be very noticeable. There are kitchen worktops to suit all budgets and tastes. Just make sure you choose one that fits in well with the style of your kitchen.

This is probably the cheapest and simplest of the three suggestions, but it can still have a major impact on your kitchen’s visual appeal. Adding some brightly coloured or patterned kitchen canisters or utensil jars to your kitchen can really give it a lift. When choosing them, try to pick out a colour that already appears in your kitchen design or one that complements it. The kitchen canisters can be displayed on your kitchen worktop or on open shelving. Small touches like this can really pull the kitchen design together. This is particularly true in modern kitchen designs with white walls and kitchen units. Small splashes of colour from well-chosen kitchen items can bring the room to life.

Hopefully these ideas have got you thinking about the various ways in which you could enhance the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen. You don’t have to spend a fortune to make massive improvements.
