Easy design ideas to spruce up your kitchen

These handy budget kitchen tips can help you to save hundreds – or even thousands – on your next kitchen renovation!

If you’re currently on the hunt for budget kitchen ideas, you’re in the right place.  Your kitchen may be looking a little tired, but there’s no need to worry about spending thousands on a fresh new look.  All it takes is time, creativity and a little effort on your part.

Paint your kitchen cabinets

One of the easiest ways to update any kitchen is to give your cupboards a makeover.  If the framework is still in good shape, you can easily just replace the doors.  Or why not give your kitchen cupboards a facelift with a fresh coat of paint?  Paint is often the easiest (and cheapest) way to transform a kitchen.  Look for a rich, but calming paint shade to aid relaxation.  A deep, verdant blue is one of the most popular paint trends this year.

If you prefer a brighter space, opting for a cream background will easily help to create a fresh feel.  Paints from B&Q and Wilko are a great, budget friendly option of you’re interested in painting your kitchen.

Invest in new worktops

Changing and replacing existing worktops in your kitchen can dramatically change the overall look and feel of your kitchen.  Laminate is the most cost-effective choice, however, if you are working with a bigger budget you can look into other materials.  Granite, concrete and marble are all popular choices.

Update the kitchen floor

If a kitchen floor that has seen better days is letting your design scheme down, then change it.  These days you don’t need to go through the hassle of taking up an old floor as you can simply lay a new floor on top of the old.

Make room for additional storage

It’s amazing how quickly we accumulate ‘stuff’ over the years.  Take the time to sort out your kitchen cupboards, then organise them so that you can easily access everything you use on a daily basis.  Tidying cluttered worktops can instantly improve the overall look and feel of your kitchen space.  Alternatively, why not add some extra shelf space or install hanging rails to maximise the space available.

Add a feature wall (or two!)

Using wallpaper in your kitchen is a great way to bring vibrancy and colour to an old kitchen.   You can either choose to cover the entire wall or create a fun feature wall.  Either way, this will easily update your kitchen and give it a fresh, modern look.
