Renovating a whole kitchen space can easily be an expensive and time-consuming process, which is why many people end up neglecting or postponing their kitchen remodel. That can make it end up looking tired and shabby.

Create A Display
Adding some shelves to your kitchen wall is a great way to give the space a design feature and plenty of character. You can find affordable shelving in a variety of places, or, even better, you can create your own. All you need is a saw, some sandpaper, and some shelf brackets, and voila; a shiny new row of shelves to pop your wares on top of. Displaying cookbooks, glassware, dinnerware, and those lovely hammered copper mugs you received for Christmas, in your kitchen, will bring it to life with your own personality and cherished memories. Try decanting foods into mason jars and putting your first aid kit into an enamel tin. Being creative with your storage containers and how you display them will ensure that your kitchen looks like something you’d find on Pinterest. And, best of all, it won’t cost you a fortune to get the desired look you want.

Think About Details
By simply updating specific areas of your kitchen environment and not gutting the whole place and starting from scratch, you can save quite a bit of money. You’ll also be able to create a personalized interior space, that will look great. Your sink and taps are key places that can look dated and a bit grim, so updating them will lift your kitchen counter space immediately. You may not need to spend money on overpriced basins and faucets in order for your kitchen to look chic either. Check out reclamation yards for some vintage steals, or have a look online to grab a bargain, then rope in some help to fit your upgraded sink and taps (unless you’re a qualified plumber, you’re best hiring a professional.) Light fittings and shades can also be a focal point to the room, especially when they light up preparation and dining spaces in your kitchen.

Roll Up Your Sleeves
If the thought of re-tiling a kitchen fills you will dread, or if it’s simply not a feasible option for you, there are a few things you can do to achieve an updated interior space. A fresh coat of paint on the walls will go a long way and can lighten and brighten the environment. Think about using clean neutral, or white, hues, which will open up space and breathe new life into a tired wall. A light backdrop will also allow you to add accessories and artwork of any color or design, making it a versatile choice for your kitchen.
