You must have seen pictures of perfect kitchen layouts in magazines or Pinterest and had the sinking feeling that yours is nowhere close to how those looks. Truth is the kitchen is the one place in the house that easily gets shabby and is prone to wear and tear.
Unlike the rest of our living space, we may not always give our kitchens sufficient attention and that should not be the case. We spend a lot of time there and it is a must for it to be a pleasant experience. Therefore, here are easy ways to remodel your kitchen to improve how it looks and feels.
Bring in the tiles
Modern day kitchens are equipped with wall tiles to lessen the stress of dirty walls and also to ensure an appealing look for your kitchen. The walls near your cutting station and food preparation are prone to stains and marks due to the daily usage.
The first thing to do when remodelling is to install wall tiles or any other surface that enables cleaning. This lessens the stress and hassle of cleaning. Using coloured or patterned tiles adds a different dimension to your kitchen by making it look aesthetic and modern.
Paint is your friend
Faded or drab kitchen cabinets and cupboards can do with a touch of painting. Bring to life your existing furnishings by painting or polishing them depending on the surface and material. Add bright colours to walls and ceilings and re paint kitchen cupboards. Use colours that match the rest of the layout of your house so that it looks neat and sleek.
Reinstalling bench tops
Whether it is the kitchen island or the bench tops around the kitchen, they too need to look pristine and neat. opt for different materials such as wood, stainless steel or stone.

The ease of use and heat repelling materials work great for someone that enjoys being in the kitchen.
You know that non-stick pan from 2015 that isn’t really non-stick anymore? Yes, that needs to go. It is not enough just revamping your kitchen if you are going to use the same existing equipment and utensils. Go through your cupboards and drawers and get rid of everything you cannot use.
By doing this you are getting rid of years’ worth of clutter and you may also find things you forgot you had. Once the clutter is out of the way you can invest in new utensils that are necessary and can be used for a long period of time.
Do not forget flooring
We focus so much on the walls, tiles and counters we forget about the flooring. A messy, stained floor is a huge turn off so this is equally important when remodelling. You can opt for tiles that are easy to clean or wooden boarded floors. It is best to use a material that matches the rest of the house.
