Is your kitchen looking a little sad? Over time, even the cleanest of kitchens fade and start looking a little dull. Here are some simple, yet effective ways of sprucing up your kitchen.
If you’ve got traditional wooden kitchen cupboards that have lost their shine, maybe have a few scuff marks and dents from wear and tear, consider buffing them up with a slightly damp cloth and polish. This should bring the shine back slightly. Then coat the doors in a clear varnish, as this will ensure that your cupboards look bright and full of life like they used to. One bonus of varnish, is that it’s easy to wipe clean if any spillages occur.
Having your spices and utensils on display in your kitchen is a brilliant addition to make it seem more lived in. Unfortunately, your shelves can begin to look dull and dusty over time. Why not remove them from the wall and give them a lick of paint that ties in with your kitchen colors? Doing this will make an incredible difference to how your kitchen looks.
Has your kitchen sink lost it’s shine? This may be due to scratches that have formed over time. Kitchen sinks are very inexpensive to buy, and fairly easy to fit too, especially if you’ve got a helping hand. Don’t forget your welding masks though! Fitting a new stainless steel sink will brighten up your kitchen no end.
