Easy Solutions For A New Kitchen

One thing I have talked about before, and keep going on about to my poor husband is my kitchen. I just do not like it anymore.  There is nothing wrong with it and I love the space we have to work and the cupboard space.  It is fairly old now but the high gloss cupboard doors still look like new.

Ideally, I would love a total kitchen make over and have an Island with the hob and work space in the middle.  I have already been told why I can not have the sink in the Island.  But as we have just totally remodelled our bathroom and bedroom, this project will have to be put on hold for a while.

How Can You Update A Kitchen

Replace Worktops

One way you can update a kitchen and transform it by working with what you have is by replacing your kitchen worktops.  This really would make a huge difference to your kitchen and give it a new lease of life.

There are so many options to choose from including

  • Laminate
  • Solid Wood
  • Quartz

For me I would love a Granite worktop, and have looked at these before. I love the colours and they look amazing.  As granite worktops are more expensive this is definitely going to have to wait until my kitchen is transformed as it is more expensive so would want to get the most use from it.

Another way you can update your kitchen, is by painting the kitchen doors.  This will give them a whole new lease of life and is a quick way to update your kitchen.  You can also change the fittings and give your cupboards and drawers new handles.


A very quick way of transforming your kitchen is by changing those items we have on show such as

  • Kettle
  • Microwave
  • Food Mixer
  • Jars

You can colour co-ordinate them to your current theme.

Do you have any tips on updating your kitchen?

    We need to replace everything. Our drainage is awful as the pipes are at right angles and full of silt

    An easy cheaper option is definitely painting, it looks brand new with a lick of paint.
