There’s no denying that the coronavirus pandemic has forced us to spend more time in our kitchens than we used to; and with more time spent in the kitchen, we must have noticed areas that need renovation. 

Before corona virus, how long did 

At the same time, the pandemic has left many of us anxious about the future. Questions like, “will we still be employed this time next year?” “Will the economy take a turn for the worse?” and other finance-related worries have crossed our minds at one point or the other during this period. So, while we acknowledge the need to change our kitchens, we also have a tight rein on our expenses.

And that’s why, in this article, we have come up with some fab ideas for inexpensive kitchen refurbs. It’s great if you’ve attempted some of these ideas in the lockdown, but there’s always more you can do in your kitchen, as you are about to find out.


Changing your cabinet doors

Yes, even better than giving your existing cabinet doors a quick paint job, changing them completely can really alter the look of your kitchen in a fab way. It’s not difficult to do – you retain the shell of your existing units and simply fit on a ‘new look.’ A kitchen refurb could, for instance:

  • involve changing the cabinets to reflect a country kitchen design with some fabulous new shaker doors.
  •  Involve the use of different colours for the cabinets. Opt for a subtle colour, like a light shade for some cabinets and a dark shade for others.

Affixing different handles to cabinets and drawers

Yes, a change as small as this really can alter the look of your kitchen. It’s just a case of unscrewing the existing handles and adding a new one of your choice. Once finished, it will feel like you have a whole new set of cabinet doors – and at very minimal expense.

Kitchen refurb: tap into a new sink

Yes, the clue is in the heading. Change the faucets and you’ll alter the look of your sink. It will feel different, too. if you opt for a mixer instead of two separate taps. Or even treat yourself to a boiling water tap so as to save you putting on the kettle as much. Just make sure your faucet reflects the design of your kitchen i.e. a bronze or other metal tap for a country kitchen and a matt black version for a contemporary appeal.

Let in some LED

LED strip lighting looks fantastic around the base of a kitchen island or underneath wall cabinets so that it shines on the worktops. As well as being functional, this can also act as ambient lighting when sitting at the kitchen island relaxing with your other half or a friend over a glass of wine in the evening. LED lighting is so advanced these days it can be controlled via remote control and colour changing is more or less de rigueur.
