Is your kitchen outdated and in need of a makeover? There is no need to rip out the kitchen entirely and install a brand new one. With a few simple measures and without any building work, you can achieve a surprising and superlative result. We have listed a number of tips for you to get started right away.

A new colour creates a new atmosphere

A new coat of paint can make a world of difference and gives your kitchen an instant make-over. A kitchen is an active space where you do the cooking, washing up, have breakfast and eat snacks. All this calls for vivid colours. Fresh red, green or blue: it is all possible. These colours are best used as an accent, and combining them with a neutral colour (a white hue is and remains popular).

Naturally, a lot depends on your personal taste and your interior style. You would use different colours in a rural or traditional kitchen than for a contemporary or designer kitchen.

Refurbishing the kitchen: new cabinet doors and panels

Renovating a kitchen does not need to be a lengthy, drawn-out, expensive process. Do your kitchen cabinets need replacing? You may only need to replace the doors and panels. Choose a material, a finish and a colour that harmonize with the style of your kitchen and suit your personal taste.

Tip: New kitchen cabinets require new furniture fittings. Furniture handles can be found in a variety of materials, styles, colours and designs.

The details make all the difference

The details make all the difference, even in the kitchen. With some simple changes, you can take the look of your kitchen to the next level, with:

  • New kitchen accessories such as a towel holder, a knife block or shelves
  • The right functional and designer lighting
  • Green plants
