Quick updates for your kitchen

Quick updates for your kitchen

Your kitchen is the most valuable room in the house, according to Home Owners Alliance (hoa.org.uk), and as such, it’s worth investing in.

Followers of our blog will already know that April is home improvement month, so today we’re taking a closer look at how you can make some quick updates to your kitchen, and add considerable value to your home in the process.


1. Give your kitchen cabinets a revamp

Re-facing your kitchen cabinets is just as effective as installing new ones, and will save you some money too.


Freshome.com advises the crucial nature of investing in cabinetry that is able to perform consistently over time and resist wear for nearly 20 years. You can keep your kitchen looking fresh with white painted cabinets. Add a pop of bright colour to the walls for a modern feel.


2. Splurge on counter tops

While upgrading your kitchen counter tops may be expensive, high end counter tops can add serious value to your kitchen, which in turn, adds serious value to your home. And just think how much use you’ll get out of those counter tops – we reckon it’s worth splurging.


This oak kitchen seen on channel4.com has been elegantly finished off with granite counter tops, which will last for years and still look great. It also helps to add an exciting twist to a modern country kitchen look.


3. Buy a new oven

If you don’t have enough money to install a totally new kitchen, investing in a new oven can sometimes work just as well. Your eye will be immediately drawn to the shiny new appliance.


( If you want to retain a traditional feel in your kitchen, you may wish to consider buying a range cooker. We love this one seen on housetohome.co.uk – the bright red will add a pop of eye-catching colour and brighten up the room.)
