A Christmas Kitchen on a Budget – Everything You Need To Know

The jingle of bells is tinkling closer… soon everything will be covered in red and gold glitter, twinkling lights will illuminate the night, and the scent of cinnamon and mulled wine will waft from every kitchen. It’s a season of joy, food and new beginnings – so why should your kitchen be left out? A refresh doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, creating a shiny new look on a budget is a lot easier than you may think, all it takes is a little time, patience and plenty of creativity.

Paint makes perfection

One of the easiest and most effective ways to give your kitchen a fabulous new look is to switch up the colour of your cupboards and cabinets. Maybe you’ll go for a bold, bright look, or go for something more traditional. Choosing a new colour can be great fun, and you’ll be surprised how much it can transform the whole room. 

Vinyl those countertops

Using vinyl to cover old or dull countertops has become very common among renters, but there’s no reason homeowners can’t take advantage of it! Vinyl is a simple and affordable way to transform a kitchen and give it some more personality. Nowadays, there are so many designs available from wood and stone effect to funky colours and patterns, so you can customise your kitchen to best suit you. 

Don’t forget the finishing touches

It’s the finishing touches that really make a room, and there are so many ways to add them to your kitchen. Decorative items are a lovely way to bring character to the room and make the space feel more “lived-in”. Whether you go for a few statement pieces or fill your shelves with trinkets and knick-knacks will depend on the overall look you’re trying to create. Since it’s the festive season, don’t forget to add some Christmas-themed decor too! 

Adding some new knobs and handles is also a fantastic way to get the perfect finishing touch and create a more polished kitchen. There are so many styles to choose from, each creating a different look and feel to the room. The Romeo Martini, Calgary and Paris collections, for example, create a more traditional feel, whereas the Layon, Art Deco and Athena collections give off a more modern look.
