Updated kitchen

How do I update my kitchen?


Lighting can be one of the easiest ways to update your kitchen. Choosing between ambient, task, and accent lighting will bring out different parts of your kitchen. In a modern kitchen, LED strip lighting can be a good low-key way to brighten up the room. Alternatively, choosing some statement lights can bring attention to the centre of the room.


Unfortunately, appliances become outdated quite quickly so if you designed your kitchen years ago it could be time to give them an update. Admittedly, appliances tend to have one job which they will do no matter the aesthetics, but that does not mean they won't have cool new features to consider.  You could also invest in some smart kitchen appliances to bring your kitchen into the modern age. In modern times, you can talk to your toaster, if you want to. 


A great way to update your kitchen that doesn't break the bank is by changing the hardware. Kitchen hardware relates to all the small things in your kitchen like the doorknobs, cabinet handles. By making a few changes to the hardware in your kitchen, you can really change the aesthetic. Plus, it is perhaps the most affordable thing you can do to give your kitchen a fresh look.


Kitchen accessories range from cutlery and pans to bowls and plates. Basically, everything in your kitchen is not bolted down. This is probably one of the cheapest and easiest things you can change to update your kitchen. If you prefer a minimalist look brass kitchen accessories can look great against darker neutral colours like black and grey; or why you could add in a bit of colour and go for more colourful kitchen accessories to bring your kitchen to life.


Cabinets can look tired after years of use. A really easy way to give them a new lease of life is to remove all the cabinet doors and bring them back to life with a lick of paint. This is a tried-and-tested way of updating your kitchen’s look. Alternatively, you could swap them out with new cabinets if you want to update your kitchen’s look.
