Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms of your home. It’s not just the place where food is prepared. In most cases, it is also the spot where the family meet, passing each other as they go about their day. That’s the reason it is still generally referred to as the heart of the home.

However, no matter how central it is to the home, your kitchen can still start to look tired and dated. While a complete kitchen renovation is likely to set you back thousands, you can upgrade the style of your kitchen with the following three techniques. 

1. Add A Rug

Carpets and rugs are not usually popular options in kitchens where food is spilt and there is an abundance of moisture. However, if you choose a dedicated rug from the range offered by Missamara Rugs NZ, you’ll find it is perfectly adapted for kitchen life.

It can improve your grip, add warmth, and resist stains and spills. It will also protect your floor and it becomes a focal point, detracting from the condition of your old flooring. 

Best of all, rugs are available in a huge array of colours and textures, simply choose your favourite and enjoy.

2. Replace or Paint Cupboards

One of the simplest ways to transform the look and the style of any kitchen is to change the doors on your cupboards. After all, even if you renovate it’s the doors that most people see, the cupboard units are effectively invisible! 

Changing the doors is easy and a significantly cheaper DIY project than replacing everything. You can choose from a wide variety of colours and styles.

However, if none of these appeal then you can paint your existing cupboard doors. This is a slightly more time-consuming approach as every door will need to be sanded before it can be painted. This ensures the new paint will stick to the door. If you don’t sand or prep the door first the new paint will quickly peel off, leaving you with a very messy space.  

While you’re doing the doors it’s a good idea to change the countertops. 

3. Change Hardware

There are plenty of big objects in the kitchen but the pieces that make a fundamental difference is actually the hardware. That’s the door handles on your cupboards and the entry door, the light fitting, and even the organizers on the wall. 

Changing these can transform the style and look of your kitchen. There are hundreds of different designs, colours and styles to choose from. All you have to do is select the ones you like and swap your existing hardware over. 

The process is simple and effective, it’s also extremely cheap. 

Final Thoughts

Any one of the above will change the style of the kitchen, you can even repaint the walls to make it look different. But, if you really want to change the style and make it feel like a new kitchen, you’ll do all three things listed above. It will leave a positive and lasting impression.
