However, we know not everyone needs or wants a new kitchen (hello to all our previous customers!), and the good news is there are lots of quick, simple and inexpensive ways to update your kitchen for spring. Here are some tips and ideas to help you give your kitchen a fresh new look and feel for the season.
Clean and declutter
The first step to freshening up your kitchen for spring is to give it a deep clean and declutter. Get rid of anything that is old, broken, or no longer needed. Organise your cabinets and drawers, and wipe down all surfaces, including countertops, appliances, and the inside of your fridge and oven. Just watch the light shine on all your sparkly-clean surfaces!
Add some greenery
Plants and flowers can instantly add life and colour to your kitchen. Consider adding potted herbs, such as basil or parsley, to your windowsill or countertop. Not only do they look great, but they’re also functional and can be used in your cooking. You can also add a vase of fresh flowers to your kitchen table or island for a pop of colour and fragrance. If real plants aren’t your friends, fret not as there are some great artificial alternative available that will last with zero maintenance.
Swap out your textiles
Another easy way to freshen up your kitchen is to change up your textiles for spring. Replace your heavy winter tablecloth with a lighter, brighter one. Change your dish towels and oven gloves to ones with spring colours and patterns. This simple change can make a big difference in the overall feel of your kitchen.
Add some new accessories
Small accessories can make a big impact in your kitchen. Consider adding some new colourful crockery or a statement piece like a decorative tray or vase. You can also add some new artwork to your walls or change your cabinet hardware for a new look.
Incorporate seasonal produce
Spring is a great time to start incorporating more seasonal produce into your cooking. Think fresh asparagus, peas, strawberries, and rhubarb. Not only will it give your dishes a fresh, new taste, but it will also add colour and vibrancy to your kitchen. Fruit bowls or vegetable trugs on display are a great way of adding colour and texture to your room, especially in traditional, country style kitchens.
Paint your cabinets or walls
If you’re looking to make a more significant change in your kitchen, but don’t want to go the whole hog with a new one, consider painting your cabinets or walls. A fresh coat of paint can instantly brighten up the space and give it a new look and feel. Consider painting your cabinets a light colour, such as white or cream, to make the space feel brighter and more open. This is a fantastic way to give your kitchen a facelift on a tiny budget.
Replace your lighting
Lighting can make a big difference in the overall feel of your kitchen. Consider replacing your old, outdated light fixtures with new, modern ones. You can also add some under-cabinet lighting to highlight your countertops and add some ambiance to the space.
Organise your food cupboards
Cluttered and disorganised food cupboards can make your kitchen feel chaotic and overwhelming. This is often especially the case after Easter when there is lots of extra chocolate and sweet treats hanging about. Take some time to organise your cupboards, throwing away any expired or unused items. Use clear containers and labels to keep everything organised and easily accessible – these are great for taking to refillable eco shops and stations if you are environmentally-minded.
Add some new seating
If you have a kitchen island or bar area, consider adding new or updating existing seating. This is a great way to give your kitchen a new look and feel without making any major changes. Consider adding some colourful bar stools or chairs to add some personality and style to your space.
Update your appliances
If your appliances are outdated or not working efficiently, consider upgrading them. Not only will this give your kitchen a fresh, new look, but it will also save you money on your energy bills in the long run. Newer appliances rank much higher on the energy-efficiency scale, which is good for your pocket and the environment.
To summarise, whatever your budget there are many ways to freshen up your kitchen for spring. From adding greenery and new accessories to painting your cabinets, updating your appliances, or even replacing the whole thing, there are many options to choose from. Whatever changes you make, remember that the goal is to create a bright, airy, and inviting space that you’ll enjoy spending time in.
