If your kitchen is looking a little tired and worse for wear, but you don’t have the funds to replace everything, there are a few more affordable fixes you can do to give this room a new lease of life.
The Irish Times recently offered some simple tips to help you update your kitchen and make it look like a new room, without having to replace all the cupboards and appliances (unless you want to).
One of the suggestions is to replace your tiles. But the newspaper notes that you don’t just have to retile the walls, as there is a growing trend towards using tiles on your work surface too.
“There’s a trend now towards matching the splashback to the countertop, and this is a fresh and not very invasive way of injecting colour into an existing kitchen,” the news provider stated.
Looking at the kitchen tiles you can buy in Middlesex could therefore be a good place to begin with your revamp.
Another trend highlighted by the newspaper is the return of the breakfast bar. If you have the space in your kitchen this can be a great way to provide seating without needing to have a separate table, so it’s the ideal solution for smaller to mid-sized kitchens.
Meanwhile, Domain recently reported on some top kitchen trends as identified by Houzz. This includes the rise of island installations for those who have space, and a move towards larger, more open kitchens in our homes. Pendant lighting and wood will feature heavily in many kitchen revamps this year, the site added.
