Makeover Magic

Sometimes a brand new kitchen isn’t actually what you need – a makeover will give you the same outcome but for far less.

On that basis, what are 5 ways a kitchen makeover can save you money, time and space? Well, firstly, you will be far less stressed, out of pocket and inconvenienced, but let’s look more closely at some of the practical and easy steps you can take to achieve this wonderful kitchen makeover.

  1. Keep the layout you have
    If you know your kitchen well and find that it’s actually a very workable space, why rewrite history? Instead, keep the layout you have and determine the makeover you want in that space. It’s good to mull over ideas and recognise that sometimes even some small changes – to cabinets, appliances, benchtops and flooring can make a big difference.
  2. Give your cabinets a facelift
    New cabinets can make a huge difference to your kitchen makeover and they can really help transform the style and efficiency of your kitchen. If you’ve got toasters, coffee machines, dishwasher rack and saucepans spilling onto your bench space, bigger more user-friendly cabinets could be an absolute lifesaver.
  1. A new colour scheme
    So many home decorating hacks talk about the transformative powers of a fresh lick of paint, and we are in complete agreement! You have a wealth of choices available to you from two-tone to monochrome to pastel to traditional white. It is hard to go wrong with painting your cabinets and walls.
  2. New appliances
    A lot of the time, it’s not so much a brand new kitchen we want, but we realise we need to update our whitegoods and kitchen appliances. Whether it’s a cooktop, rangehood, oven or dishwasher, it’s good to get expert advice on what’s best for your kitchen.
  3. Revisit your finishes
    If your kitchen doors, benchtops and splashbacks look like they’ve seen better days, it can be more economical to focus on upgrading them than completely remodelling your kitchen. And don’t forget that there are ergonomical appliances available which can really change the way your kitchen works, such as cabinetry that uses the space efficiently. Last but not least, when was the last time you gave your kitchen draw and cabinet handles a makeover? You’d be amazed at what a difference this can make. In the blink of an eye, you can give your kitchen a stunning makeover without breaking the bank. Happy days.
