Want a surefire but inexpensive way to update your kitchen this year? Consider these options that pack a design punch.
Change the cabinet doors
An easy and cost-effective way to refresh the kitchen is to change the cabinetry doors. Whether you want to go for a completely new look, create a feature in your home or touch up the space with accent doors you can create a personalised and unique look that reflects your style, with minimal effort. We love the Ytterbyn colourful cabinet doors from Ikea
Update the whitegoods
No, we’re not talking about the fridge, oven or dishwasher, consider replacing the much more inexpensive kettle, mixer or toaster in accent colours or even with woodgrain or cork. Result? An immediate lift! We love the Morphy Richards Cork Kettle $159, from Harvey Norman.
One of the secrets to a better looking kitchen is organisation. You can keep your benchtops clear and ensure that clutter stays at bay by making the insides of your kitchen work harder. Well-labelled organised drawers and pantries will keep everything in place. We love these Tiny Me Pantry Labels from $20.
Update the tapware
Consider replacing your taps and bring in matte black, copper, brushed nickel or rose gold taps which will instantly add a modern look. Try this Squared Kitchen Mixer, Matte Black, $314.10 from Schots Home Emporium.
Accessorise the natural way
Little changes can make a big impact. Consider buying accessories in on-trend natural or natural-look textures and tones such as marble or wood.
