If you're thinking of revamping your kitchen on a budget, don't think you're completely hampered with what you can get done. We have a few tips that could leave your room looking suitably jazzed up!
1. If you are unable to afford to replace your kitchen units, the cheapest and most effective way of creating a whole new look is to repaint, which can be done on both wood and laminate surfaces. Once you stand back and admire your handiwork, you'll probably be tempted to change the handles and worktops too.
2. Think outside the box! For instance you never know what you can find at charity shops, car boot sales and vintage fairs. It could lead to anything from a collection of bottles in the same colour, a vintage tea set that could inspire your entire colour scheme, or even some extra storage in the form of a wall-mounted fruit crate.
3. New vinyl flooring provides another great option. The latest high definition printing technology can make vinyl replicate materials like wood, stone or cork if you'd like a natural look. Or alternatively, you could always opt for one of the many funky, graphic and geometric prints which are available. However, bear in mind that you'll need a smooth and even floor to lay vinyl - and it can be prone to tearing if heavy appliances are dragged over it.
4. Sometimes, something as simple as a splash of colour and pattern on the walls can perk up an otherwise plain and boring kitchen. If you're going for a wallpapered feature wall, why not use off-cuts inside open shelving to tie in the look?
