How-to update your kitchen just in time for Christmas

Is Your Kitchen Ready For This Festive Season?

We’re officially in autumn and with Christmas rapidly approaching you might be starting to organise events, looking for the perfect gifts, and thinking about simple ways to update your kitchen!

If you’re at a bit of a loss on how to update your kitchen, you’re in luck because we’ve got some quick, easy and cost-effective solutions to suit your budget!

New Sink and taps

Probably one of the easiest ways you can update your kitchen is to swap out your existing tap. Replacing the tap is one of those nice practical changes you can make to your kitchen because it’s likely you’ll use it all the time.

Taps have come a long way in the last few years you get ones that dispense filtered water or even boiled water so you can ditch your kettle!

You may also want to consider going with a brushed metal look to make your kitchen look more industrial and modern, or you could go completely the other direction with a more traditional style tap.

Change your barstools

This might seem pretty simple because it is! If you’re looking for an easy way to change the appearance of your kitchen you could swap out the barstools on your kitchen island.

Switching out your barstools can help better reflect the overall design aesthetic of your kitchen. For example, if your kitchen is more modern you might opt for something with no back or a low back. Or if you’re a frequent entertainer and guests may need to sit in the barstools for any length of time, you may want to make sure the new barstools have a cushion or back support to make them more comfortable!

And if you don’t have a kitchen island, you could always look at changing your dining chairs to fit your kitchen style.

Invest in storage

Next on our list of how to update your kitchen could be as simple as rethinking the storage solutions in your existing space.

Could you move things around and make it better? Or do you need something more permanent like a peninsular or kitchen island to help?

Sometimes adding a kitchen island seems like a good idea but space might be too small.

Update your worktop

Last but not least, if you’re looking to change the appearance of your kitchen quickly and efficiently it may be worth considering updating your worktop.

Even switching from a dark material to a light material can make the world of difference and give your kitchen a completely new look! Or if you’ve previously had a wooden type worktop you could try a stone effect.
