Your kitchen is the heart of the home. If you are looking to create a beautiful place for all of the family to gather and spend their time this Christmas – the kitchen is a great place to start your renovations. Now and again your kitchen will need some tlc, and it is important to take the time to revamp this much used space to ensure it doesn’t end up looking old and drab.
Here are some of the different things you can do this winter to make your kitchen look renewed, fresh, and warm.
Invest in amazing crock pots
The first thing you can do when vamping up the kitchen for winter is consider your cooking. There are some amazing crock pots and casserole dishes available out there such as ones shaped like pumpkins or the classic orange Le Creuset sets. To make your kitchen look amazing as well as add some practical features, consider investing in a few of these dishes and keep them for your winter hosting season.
Relay your floor
The floor of your kitchen will face a heavy footfall throughout the year, and this will make it wear down a lot quicker than some of the other rooms of your house. If you want to refresh your kitchen this winter one easy job to do is buy a roll of tough vinyl flooring in any shade and design you want and relay your floor within a day. The change this will make to the look of your room is amazing and it will provide a refreshing twist to the room without you spending the earth. If you did want to splash out, you could even consider installing some under floor heating if you use this room often for hosting gatherings.
Get new chrome taps
Chrome taps are the best, and they will instantly make your kitchen look fresh and new at a low cost. If you have old taps and an old sink and drainer, consider making the switch this month to some wonderful shiny chrome that will make your kitchen look classy and new.
Find a stunning countertop
Your countertop is one of the most important practical and aesthetic features of the kitchen. To refresh your kitchen consider replacing your old countertops in favour of something more modern and new. You can also think about reusing granite countertops for different uses around your house. Once you have installed some new countertops your whole kitchen will look fresh and new and this will be the most amazing change you can make.
Finish cupboards with matte colour
The countertops are one of the most important visual features of your kitchen, second only to your kitchen cupboards. Whether you have wooden kitchen cupboards or plastic ones – you can change the look and feel of the entire room simply by changing the colour of your cupboards. If wooden, consider buying some deep blue or teal matte paint and covering the cupboards in this. You’ll end up with a modern, stunning design that is timeless and will make your kitchen more cosy. If plastic, you can find kitchen cupboard decals in a whole range of different designs and shades to suit your needs and tastes.
Try rose gold doorknobs
If you are sick and tired of your boring silver door handles and knobs, the simple change you can make here is to go for a rose gold or copper colour. Rose gold is a modern and fashionable colour and it is one that will immediately make your kitchen look more modern and new. This paired with deep navy blue cupboards will give a stunning effect and one that is bound to wow anyone who comes to your house this year.
Spotlights are a type of lighting that are ideal for the kitchen and the bathroom. If you currently have a pendant light or a flush fitting on the ceiling, it is time to get rid and update your design for something more modern and sleek. The great thing about spotlights is that they are not only brighter, but they are usually more energy efficient than other light fittings therefore you’ll get the added benefit of being able to save some money!
Keep it warm
Adding some warming final touches to your kitchen is key for it to look amazing this winter. From red and orange tea towels to some cushions for your dining chairs, there are a few different things you can do to vamp up your kitchen and make it look warm and welcoming for the winter season.
