30 Jun How To Uplift Your Kitchen This Summer!
As they say, the kitchen is the heart of the home and as we hit the summer months, many of us will be spending a lot more time in our kitchen dining areas, hosting friends and family and making the most of the lighter evenings and loosening of COVID-19 restrictions.
With this being said, the summer is the perfect time to give your kitchen a bit of an uplift, be it a full-on kitchen renovation or adding a few new accessories. Here’s your guide to how you don’t have to break the bank to get your kitchen summer-ready.
Uplifting Your Kitchen
Add A Pop Of Colour Using Accessories
Giving your kitchen a summer makeover need not be a complicated or timely process. Bring the sun inside by simply adding a few splashes of sunshine to spruce up your space. Blinds, vases, tablecloths, and cushions are all great examples of how you can add colour to your kitchen if you’re opting for a more subtle approach.
Time For A Paint Job
If you plan on painting your kitchen walls, try and go for light colours. They reflect light, hiding any scratches or dents that you haven’t quite got round to sorting yet. Or how about trying out marble wallpaper, keeping in line with one of the biggest kitchen trends for the summer.
Utilise Local Designers
If your summer kitchen uplift is looking like a slightly larger renovation project, Barras Home Improvements can help! Based in Coventry, the team is made up of electricians, plasterers, kitchen and bathroom installers, tilers, and decorators, with over thirty years of experience in the industry. They can help you to give you the new kitchen you’ve always dreamed of by choosing your materials for the perfect kitchen installation.
Change The Lighting
Lighting can completely change the feel of a room, which can take your kitchen from a cosy, winter hideaway to the central hosting hub of your home in the summer. For a more elaborate look, why not try out a dazzling chandelier, or for a more trendy, chic look try a new style of pendant light.
Artwork can be fantastic for adding a modern touch to a room. A bold, graphic print will give the illusion of a larger room and is a sure way to impress your guests! One top tip is to be mindful of placement, as you want to avoid hanging any pieces in ‘spray zones’, which are any areas that will get caught by the stove or sink.
Put Away Your Small Appliances
Clear away that clutter from your countertops! To give your kitchen that sleek appearance for the summer, put away any appliances that don’t need to be out. Find a new home for toasters, coffee pots, pans, and your kitchen will instantly look more stylish.
