Well, 2020 has not started in the way we thought we would, has it? Bush fires, global pandemics, protests – it has been a very odd and a very traumatic few months for lots of people. We cannot control what is going on in the rest of the world, as much as we would like to, but we do have control over our own homes. In this post, we will look at some of the things you can do to bring your kitchen into 2020 and at least get something going to plan this year.
The kitchen is one place that we spend a lot of time, whether preparing nutritious meals for our families, chatting to each other over a cup of coffee and a slice of cake, helping with homework, and eating meals at the table. It makes sense to ensure it is a place that is both practical and attractive, something that fulfills it’s many purposes while being a pleasant space to spend time in.
If your appliances are getting a little old and tired, it might be time to think about replacing them. Fridges, freezers, cookers, dishwashers, microwaves and all of the other appliances that you rely on in your everyday life have an important role and get a lot of use, so it is important that they work effectively and that they do the job that they are designed for. if you do get rid of your old appliances, make sure you do so responsibly – find a reputable fridge recycling business.
A lick of paint
A fresh cost of paint and a change of colour on the walls can make a massive difference to the kitchen. Painting is a great alternative, but you can get some beautiful dream kitchens like the ones in these houses at Cite Midtown. OK, stop dreaming! If you have tiles, you can buy paint that is specially designed for those to make them look up to date – just do not forget to clean up the grout work and silicone seals.
New cupboard doors
Replacing all of your cupboards can be expensive and time-consuming, but you can quickly and cheaply remove the cupboard doors. If this is still out of your budget, refresh your existing ones by sanding them down and giving them a lick of paint or varnish. Just make sure that any paint or varnish you use is appropriate for use in a kitchen setting.
A new countertop will quickly refresh and get your kitchen bang up to date. Stones such as granite and marble are some of today’s most popular countertop materials. However, they can also be costly, which has led many to look for synthetic substitutes. There are also many classy wooden countertops for those who want a lighter material. Avoid cheap plastics that give you a feeling of tackiness.
Install new lights
Good lighting in the kitchen is essential. After all, how can you prepare that incredible three-course meal if you’ve got poor lighting? Unfortunately, it is always space where light is a little overlooked, so the best way to get it up to date and make it a modern space to spend your time in is installing new ones, such as led lights. It’s a relatively inexpensive and straightforward way to give the room a new lease on life as well as a functional one.
