Brighten up the kitchen
If your kitchen is in need of a little facelift but you can’t afford to replace all your units, there are plenty of other ways you can brighten up this important room in the house. The first thing to look at is your windows and the window ledge above the sink. This is usually an area that gathers a load of clutter and junk from washing up scrubbers to random nuts and bolts in jam jars and the occasional potted plant that could do with a bit of love!
So, step one of your kitchen facelift is to clear this area of all unnecessary clutter and give it a good scrub down. You’ll be amazed how much more light comes in through the window and how much less scruffy the sink area will look. By all means keep your potted plants; just don’t forget to feed them.
Step Two. Take a look at the windows themselves and give them a thorough clean with window cleaner so that they get their old sparkle back. Then why not think about getting some shutters to frame your lovely clean windows and de-cluttered window sills. Choosing from all sorts of different styles from the Hillarys shutters range, you can really have some fun choosing your new shutters. With various designs of hardwood and craftwood shutters, you can decide on whatever will match the rest of your kitchen.

The next thing to do is think about changing the colours of the walls. This is an easy and an affordable part of the kitchen face lift; and if you’ve lived with plain white or buttermilk for a long time, a bright colour can totally transform the kitchen. Don’t forget that the kitchen is one of the rooms in the house where condensation builds up very quickly, due to the heat and steam of cooking, so keep an eye out for special kitchen paint. This will help to prevent mould growing on the walls and ceilings if your home is prone to damp and will keep your paint job looking as good as new for as long as possible.
And there you have it – two easy ways to transform your kitchen without breaking the bank!
