Concept and how we did it
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!
This kitchen had great wooden work tops and neutral cupboards – so here are a few tips on how to save money when giving your kitchen a makeover.
1. Change the door handles
We purchased some brass handles from John Lewis to replace the outdated wooden ones.
2. A new lick of paint
We continued the same colour into the kitchen, (Farrow & Ball Shaded White).
3. Added new appliances
We went all out with a new kettle and toaster from Rangemaster. We purchased all cream appliances to match our scheme. We also got a nordic dish rack from Swan and a microwave from Russell Hobbs. The kitchen was brought to life with an Alexa to bop around to whilst cooking and a Nespresso machine.
4. A new blind
We used a company called Blinds By Post whop offered a quick an efficient made to measure service. It was delivered within days and was easy to install.
5. Finishing touches
Adding plants and fresh flowers to a kitchen always brings a little life to a room. We also made a little seating area with a French Wicker Bench from Where Saints Go – for people to sit and socialise in the kitchen area. We added some lovely wire baskets from Olive and Olive Interiors ready to fill with fresh fruit and veg! The little touches make the biggest difference.
6. Under counter lighting
We upgraded the kitchen lighting really easily by adding some strip lights from Wiz. No electrician required here simply plug them in and stick them on. You can also control the settings of colours with your phone.
