Check out our top tips on how to freshen up your kitchen whilst on a budget

Are you on a budget?

Today, we constantly want our house to look up to date and modern, but often that requires renovating, which also involves spending money. Does your kitchen look tired and need freshening up, but you’re still counting on winning the lottery for your chance to finally change the kitchen? Here at Gardiner Haskins, we have creative ideas and product inspiration to help show you that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the ideal kitchen. With key planning and choosing the correct products, you’ll be on your way to turning over your kitchen just in time for Summer. 


Outdated Cupboards?

Are your cupboards looking a little ancient and broken down but aren’t ready to break the bank? If tearing them all out isn’t the best option for you, why not think about changing the colour to help give a more modernised finish? Giving your cabinetry a fresh coat of paint would help to save money and time. This effortless task is also easy enough for all members of the family, and perfect for a fast but durable turnaround with minimal hassle.


Top Tip- Avoid colours which are too extreme if you’ve already got lots of activity happening as it will make the kitchen look busier. Creating personalized finishes will help to give your kitchen a more unique look and feel.

Worn Away Utensils?

Another way of freshening up your kitchen is by updating your kitchen tools. Have your cooking utensils come to the end of their life? Are your pots and pans layered with scratches and burnt marks? A great way of brightening up your kitchen is by updating your current cookware collection. Small changes such as restoring your chopping boards and cutlery will help to renew your kitchen, giving it a rejuvenated finish.

Broken Kitchen Handles?

Have you got that one kitchen handle which has been on its last legs for years but can’t afford to purchase a whole new kitchen? Gardiner Haskins offers a diverse span of different kitchen handles which you can purchase separately without needing to buy a whole set or switch up the whole kitchen. Such a small change can help to create the perfect look.

Ancient and Tired Fabrics?

Are your seat cushions looking a little worse for wear? Have all of your tea towels now got the same burnt holes in each corner? A small but simple way to illuminate your kitchen would be by switching up your current fabrics to help give your kitchen a fresh but subtle update that won’t cost the earth.


Make a Statement with Lighting

Create a new shed of light on a budget by choosing to merge dramatic lighting such as ceiling lights. Styles such as oversized metal pendants are a great way to help make a statement and introduce a new feel and look to your home. Adding new lighting over kitchen tables such as island tables will help to create an illusion of a focal point and will provide perfect mood lighting. 

Top Tip- Hanging lights in threes will help to give the maximum impact.
