6 DIY ways to spruce up a kitchen

09-Aug-2021

Home cooking is back in a very big way thanks to isolation. These simple projects will help you transform a tired kitchen into a home cook’s haven.
Coronavirus is changing the way we prepare and consume food. Instead of eating out or on the run, we’re cooking at home more – which means we’re spending extra time in the kitchen.

If the additional hours in front of the stove have highlighted that your kitchen is looking a bit sad, you’re certainly not alone. Try these easy DIY ways to spruce up your kitchen and inspire you to give new recipes a whirl.

Apply a fresh coat of paint
If your kitchen feels outdated and you’re ready for a completely new look, paint is your answer. There are fabulous DIY products that allow you to easily repaint cabinets, splashback tiles and even a laminate benchtop.

Fit new cabinet door handles
Swapping dated or uninspiring cabinet door handles for a modern, eye-catching design is an effective and affordable way to spruce up your kitchen instantly – especially if you’ve gone to the trouble of painting the cabinets.

You could try matte black for a contemporary update that goes with many interior styles.

Give your grout some TLC
Clean grout makes a huge difference to the overall fresh look and feel of your kitchen. If you have a tiled splashback and can’t get the grout as clean as you’d like, replace it with an epoxy grout that’s easy to clean or simply use a grout pen to refresh the colour.

Replace your sink tap
If you’re up for a slightly more advanced DIY project, consider replacing your sink tap.

An old or basic hardware-grade tap can date a kitchen and, given the amount of use they get, having something that both looks and feels great makes preparing meals and cleaning up a little less of a chore.

Fit open shelves
If you’re struggling for storage space in your kitchen, open shelving is a great solution. It’s cheaper and easier to install than extra cabinets, and it helps to make your space look brighter and more open.

Experiment with installing some open shelves to add decor, art, recipe books, plants and personal touches.

Hang some artwork
Is there a spot in your kitchen that could use some personality? Hanging art or prints can help to create a modern, up-to-date vibe. Leaning a piece of art on a bench or open shelf – as long as it’s away from flames or wet areas – or hanging a favourite piece on a bare wall can help add some colour and texture.
