Are you at that point where you want to see a change in your home? If you’re itching to give your home an update, it doesn’t mean you have to knock everything down and do a full on home remodel! No, there are many ways you can renovate your home by taking it one room at a time. So today, I’m talking about your kitchen. Specifically, I’m sharing a few ideas you can use to renovate your kitchen and make it more beautiful while keeping it practical at the same time.
Fold Out Table
One of my favourite kitchen renovation ideas is taking your kitchen furniture and turning it into something even better. You can do this with a fold out table that doubles as a cabinet (such as my kitchen bake station DIY project) or shelves. When not in use, the table folds up against the wall into the cabinet, and it folds down when you need it. This helps save space, create more storage space, and make your kitchen far more practical. These tables are often referred to as wall mounted folding tables or desks, so keep an eye out for this term when you’re shopping.
Renovate Your Sink Area
No doubt you will spend a lot of time at your kitchen sink so you’ll want it to function well and look great too. Renovate it by upgrading your kitchen sink with something modern and stain resistant. You can even get your hands on instant boiling water taps to update the practicality too – think of all the time you’ll save putting the kettle on! Ideally, you want a sink that’s very large, which makes washing up a lot easier for everyone. Not only that, but large sinks can also draw the eye and make the kitchen look a lot more modern too.
Generally speaking, your kitchen tends to heat itself up during the day. If you cook, then the oven acts as a radiator and fills the room with warmth. However, this doesn’t happen in the morning when you go down for breakfast and are greeted with a chilly kitchen. Especially if your kitchen has tiled flooring, which can make your feet feel super-cold. So, you could renovate your kitchen with underfloor heating and some new flooring. This can make it feel far cosier, which will be a huge benefit when the autumn arrives and the temperature drops. You don’t have to have it on full blast either, you can just have a little bit of warmth underfoot to make the room more comfortable.
Storage is everything in your kitchen as there’s a;ways so much kitchen equipment to put away. Consequently, you’ll need to make sure that convenient storage space is at the heart of any kitchen renovation project you do. Install plenty of drawers – both horizontal and vertical – to ensure you can store everything away neatly. Inside the cabinets, you could have different sections to keep things in order. The more storage you have, the better your kitchen will look; you’ll have less clutter in and around the worktops, which helps keep your kitchen cleaner and more visually appealing!
I hope these kitchen renovation ideas will help you to get more out of your kitchen. Even a small change can help to make the room more beautiful AND more practical too!
