Spring is the season for renewal, which means it’s the perfect time to make changes to uplift your surroundings. If you are looking to refresh your kitchen, you’ve got no shortage of choices there – there are so many great ways to do it, from minor touches like adding fruitbowls and similar decorations to bigger changes like switching out your laminate kitchen worktops. Here are some great ideas that can help your kitchen blossom.

1) A fresh coat of paint or changing your splashbacks

A kitchen sustains a lot of wear and tear, and with spills, splashes, and grease, sometimes wiping the walls doesn’t cut it. A new colour on your walls can really refresh the room, as colours can quickly change the feel of a space. It’s not a big change, but it can make a big difference, and it’s a relatively small task to do.
Meanwhile, splashbacks are functional to protect your walls, but they can also be a great decorative feature too. Opt for brightly coloured and modern glossy tiles or even glass splashbacks, or for a timeless and traditional look with more naturalistic tiles. Adding a tiled feature to your walls will always look great, and it’s a great DIY job you can crack on with if you have the confidence.

2) Replacing tired crockery or handles and knobs

Having chipped plates, bowls and mugs might be something you have gotten used to, but now is the perfect time to treat yourself to some new tableware. There are so many stunning tableware designs out there, and with a bit of hunting you’ll definitely be able to find the set that’s right for you. You might even want to match it to your laminate kitchen worktops! (Although we’ll come onto those in more detail in just a moment.)
Small changes like replacing the hardware on your drawers and cabinets can really change the space. If you don’t want to replace them entirely, try adding a coat of spray paint to change the colour and give them a new zest of life.

3) Replacing your appliances

This is quite a big change, but one that could be long overdue. If your fridge-freezer (for example) is old and tired, upgrading to a newer and more energy-efficient model is a smart decision. Upgrading your appliances will not only give you shiny, clean models with smarter features, but it could save you plenty on energy bills too.

4) Changing your laminate kitchen worktop

The kitchen worktop is a huge feature in your kitchen, and replacing it will instantly refresh your kitchen. There are almost endless style options to choose from, with laminate kitchen worktops that can be matched to minimalist, contemporary or traditional styles (and that’s just a sample!). When you combine this by refreshing cabinets and drawers with new handles and even a coat of paint, you will get the appearance of a completely renovated kitchen.
