How to Give Your Kitchen a Vibrant Facelift

It’s no secret a kitchen renovation can be an expensive and time-consuming project. If your kitchen needs an uplift but you don’t have the time or money to make any drastic changes, there are plenty of ways to do it up – without making a dent in your credit card.

Freshen up your kitchen design using these quick fixes and affordable ideas.

Create a New Colour Scheme

The kitchen is the workhorse room of the house, and this can leave it open to more wear and tear. A fresh coat of paint is a super cost-effective way to inject new life into a space without going through a full renovation.

Opt for a modern new colour scheme in the kitchen to imbue freshness and cleanliness. Choose cool coastal tones of greys and blues for brightness or go for contemporary white and use a vibrant hue as the feature colour (e.g. add brightly coloured curtains, stools, accessories or paint the cabinets a bold colour).


Use Contrasting Textures

To achieve the same impact as a kitchen renovation without undergoing one, try incorporating contrasting textures in the star elements of your space. This might mean pairing mirrored splashbacks with highly polished, chunky Calacatta oro marble worktops, or installing cupboards with textured bronze inlays and matte cupboard fronts with sandblasted timber for layered urban glam.

Rich texture contrast adds instant modernity and looks ultrachic. Just be sure to team up kitchen textures that still pair well together.



Install Pendant Lights

A kitchen uplift can be as easy as swapping in new lighting. Pendant lighting is a designer choice for ambient lighting that also doubles as stylish task lighting. Placed over an island or suitable countertop, these hanging fixtures enhance the room in luxe style without interfering with space.

Highly versatile, pendant lights come in all shapes and styles. Whether you prefer sleek, modern bulbs or vintage-inspired design, there’s something to suit every home.
