How to spruce up your kitchen

We can often want or need to make changes to certain rooms in the house.  But we all know having total transformations or make overs comes at a cost!  More recently, I’ve made some small changes around our home and I’ve really noticed a difference in the feel and layout of certain rooms. Below I’ve come up with tips on ways in which to give your kitchen a spruce without breaking the bank!

  1. These are super ideas on how to make the dull kitchen more exciting. I tend to get new gadgets which have bright colour in to spruce up my kitchen

  2. Matt O’Connor says:

    Some great idea so there to improve the kitchen on 😊👍

  3. Linda Hobbis says:

    We’re completely swamped by paperwork in our kitchen so a noticeboard is a great idea but we could do with some filing trays as well.

  4. Some great ideas, I really want to repaint one of the walls to brighten up our kitchen

  5. A lick of paint and some art work can make all the difference. I was never a fan of our old kitchen but we repainted the kitchen from yellow to grey and it definitely made an improvement!

    Oh I love this rustic decoration so much! They are full of life just like the colours.

    These ideas make a change sound so simple and easy to achieve.

    Great ideas! I really want to update our kitchen. We have horrible tiled floor and it never looks clean no matter how much we clean it.

    I’m thinking of painting a wall with chalkboard paint so the kids can scribble on it whilst we cook and wash dishes.

  9. I love to add the personal touches and accessories. Things that can be easily changed when I fancy a change and don’t cost a fortune!

  10. Jenni says:

    I really feel like my kitchen needs a makeover. I really love the noticeboard, I get so fed up with things stuck to the fridge!

  11. Our whole house needs a makeover! We are working on the children’s rooms as the moment but we do also need to look at our kitchen too

    I love those ideas! Thanks for sharing.

With three beautiful kids, it can be hard to vacation if everyone doesn’t have enough space. A timeshare offers more space and private bedrooms, but can be very difficult to sell. Fortunately, you can get out of rci timeshare with the help of a timeshare cancellation company.
