How to Give Your Kitchen an Affordable Makeover: From Kitchen Blinds to Fresh Paint and Light Fittings

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home. From a functional point of view, having a practical and beautiful kitchen can make life in the house more pleasant.

Improving the design of your kitchen doesn’t mean that you have to knock down a wall to make an open-plan space or anything else that drastic. You can make a huge difference with something as simple as changing some kitchen blinds!

To give you a clearer idea of how to give your kitchen an affordable makeover, we’ve created a guide that provides some simple ideas. From changing the kitchen blinds to much more, we’ve created a comprehensive list.

Kitchen Blinds and Other Ways To Give Your Kitchen an Affordable Makeover

Giving any room in your home a makeover doesn’t always have to be expensive. You can make a huge difference with only slight modifications to your home. Affordable makeovers can give the most bang for your buck. Maybe you’re planning to sell your home and don’t want to spend too much on a new extension or full-scale renovation. These ideas should give you plenty to think about.

Switch Up Your Kitchen Curtains and Ready Made Blinds

One simple, quick and effective way of changing the design and style of your kitchen with just a little investment is to change the type and style of kitchen blinds. By introducing brand new window dressings to the windows in your kitchen, you can inject a burst of colour or choose shades that work well in connection with other bits of style elsewhere in the room.

As well as the aesthetic benefits, a new pair of window blinds are affordable and simple to install. When purchasing new roller blinds or kitchen curtains, the supplier may offer a free installation service. Window blinds can completely refresh the interior design style in the room.

Add New Light Fittings

Bringing in new light fittings into a room can greatly improve the aesthetic appeal of the room. By carefully choosing stylish fittings, you can create a much more impressive room. Consider installing new lamps, shades for the main lights or completely refresh the light design.

If you have one incandescent bulb in your kitchen, consider swapping it out for a network of LEDs instead. Not only do they look great and are easier to control, but LEDs are also much more energy efficient. LEDs will last up to 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs and convert much more of the energy they consume into light. So, changing your lights to LEDs will also see you make savings on your energy bills!

A New Lick of Paint on The Walls and Cabinets

Whether the colour of your walls is out of style or you simply want to change things up a bit, repainting the walls of your kitchen can make a world of difference. Particularly if you are looking to sell your home in the near future and want to add a little value, consider light shades. Light walls can help sunlight bounce around the room, making the home brighter, feel more welcoming and seem larger.

As well as the walls, you can repaint your cabinet doors and cupboards to create a new feel in the room. Simply changing the colour of the cabinets can make a room feel completely new and it hardly costs anything at all!

Get Creative With Wall Decorations

Adding some more personality to the kitchen is an excellent way to give it a makeover without spending huge sums of money. You could hang up new pieces of artwork, commission a local artist to paint a small mural on a feature wall or choose decorative wall cladding.

Creating a feature wall with either a mural or decorative wall cladding makes a huge statement in your kitchen. Decorative wall cladding is an easy- to- install option for wall decoration. With adhesive, the classing is stuck to the wall. From there, it’s simple to clean and easy to take back down if you decide to make another change.

Consider Improving Your Storage Options

In the kitchen, storage is king. The more storage you have, the more practical a kitchen area is. As well as improving practicality and functionality, plenty of storage space is also a great benefit for those looking to buy a new home. This means that you might see an increase in the value of your home or an increase in interest in the property.

Change The Little Details

You can make a difference in your kitchen with some of the finer details as well as the more wholesale changes like repainting the walls. Simply changing the taps, door handles and bits of decorative trim can add the finishing touches to kitchen design. By changing these small details, you can be far more subtle with your renovation. As part of a comprehensive design change, you shouldn’t also forget the small things that can make a big difference.

Inject Some Greenery

Plants always make a home feel much more homely. In the kitchen, you can place some indoor herbs to give the room an aromatic smell as well as providing you with fresh herbs for cooking! Introducing greenery into your kitchen also improves the air quality in a room and can lead to reduced stress levels – important when you’re making Christmas dinner!

Add New Appliances

Outside of the actual design of your kitchen, purchasing new appliances and gadgets for your kitchen can also make your home more practical and refresh the style of your home. For example, installing a new Smeg fridge will always inject more style into the kitchen. Having all of the appliances match up could help inform the rest of your design choices. If your current appliances are sticking out like a sore thumb, you can integrate them into the fabric of the room with fitted fridge freezers, ovens and other kitchen appliances.
