Kitchen Improvements: What Can We Do Ourselves?

Do you have look around your house and just get the urge to head for B&Q for a tub of paint, or fancy a change of tiles in the bathroom? There’s nothing worse than living in a home that’s looking a little bit drab and stagnant and breathing life into a room can really raise the spirits too. They don’t even need to be massive changes that cost a fortune either – adding a couple of shelves to a wall in your living room so that kid’s DVDs don’t clutter up the carpet or giving the hallway a fresh lick of paint are easy jobs that most people would be happy to get stuck into and will make your home seem fresh and revitalised. 

When it comes to the kitchen, there are plenty of improvements that we can do ourselves. As the heart of many homes, a kitchen should ooze light and airy vibes and after a while, the build-up of grease and grime will take away from this ideal. While major kitchen improvements such as replacing a boiler can cost a fortune, smaller jobs can be tackled with ease. Of course, make sure that your boiler is well looked after because the bill you could face if it died can be crippling. . With boiler care from British Gas, you can pay a monthly premium to benefit from the added peace of mind that boiler insurance provides, while many of the policies that British Gas offer also include an annual service our boiler will continue to work to its full capacity and your kitchen upgrades can be easy and affordable for longer. 

Other updates to the kitchen that could make it look like a completely different room, without forking out thousands for new units, include:
  • Adding a lick of paint to the cupboard doors so that they look like new, but they aren’t. Crafty.
  • You don’t even have to go this far – giving them a good clean and replacing the handles can do the world of good!
  • Replacing tiles around the splash back or adding tile transfers sporadically for a splash of colour.
  • Repainting the walls to brighten the room and adding a blind to the winter which compliments the new look.
Make your kitchen a delight to spend time in with budget-friendly renovations that will completely change the feeling of the room.

  1. Great post on kitchen improvement. There so many things and tasks which we can do without help of professionals like decorating, storing and cleaning etc.
