Kitchen Week: Is It Time To Refresh My Kitchen?

Is it time to refresh my kitchen banner

Are you feeling bored or tired of your kitchen? You aren’t alone. Many homeowners find after several years that their kitchen is no longer pleasing. 

Stick around and we’ll give you tons of great kitchen painting ideas, whatever your taste or style is. Even if you don’t think your kitchen needs it, you might change your mind by the time you’re done reading. 

Here are some signs that it is time to refresh your most visible room.

5 Signs It’s Time To Rethink Kitchen Painting

Sign 1: You Haven’t Repainted in More Than 5 Years

After several years, you will notice that your walls are not as vibrant as they used to be. Life takes its toll on your paint and you may notice:

  •     •Food stains
  •     •Grease marks/stains
  •     •Strong food odours
  •     •Handprints and scuff marks
  •     •Heat-affected areas
  • Paint peeling/cracking

Sign 2: Your Kitchen Painting Is All One Colour

Today, interior design has taken on a new trend. Rather than just painting kitchen cupboards white, colour, particularly a splash of bright colour, has worked its way into kitchen painting ideas.

Ideally, having a second, neutral colour can highlight the best parts of the room and help hide some flaws.

For a unique style that is all you, try mixing some textures and patterns like stripes. Click here for our guide on painting stripes!

Sign 3: You Don’t Feel Happy In Your Kitchen

It’s your home, you should enjoy it! If you are finding yourself unhappy, or just feeling blah about your kitchen decorating, try painting. A fresh coat of paint helps to reinvigorate your space, even if the colour isn’t all that different.

Sign 4: You Feel Embarrassed To Invite People Over For Dinner

You should never feel embarrassed about your home. Stains of dinners past and old, peeling, or chipping paint have no place in your most visible room. Painting kitchen cabinets alone can make a stunning difference. Interior decorating trends are moving more towards open-concept kitchens and dining rooms while making a fresh, clean, and beautiful kitchen even more important for making a good impression on your guests.

If your new appliances don’t match the old paint, a paint update can make your kitchen look brand new.

Sign 5: Your Kitchen Doesn’t Fit Your Life

You are classy and elegant, but your kitchen is too colourful. No matter how much you used to love it, it just doesn’t suit you anymore. You’ve grown up.

Now is the time for your kitchen to grow up too and look more sophisticated to match your life.

Refreshing your kitchen can bring the fun back into the most visible room in your house. Your home should reflect you, and your own kitchen decorating ideas. A new paint colour, or adding a new element like stripes, can give your home a fresh look that speaks to you.

Now, are you ready to turn your kitchen into a space that reflects who you are, without breaking the bank?

Here are some tips:
  • Tip #1: Paint the cabinets

Painting kitchen cabinets is one of the easiest ways to change the look of your kitchen. But you may wonder: How do I make my cabinet more modern? The answer is simple: Just add some colour!

Try vibrant hues like red, yellow and blue to make your kitchen pop. If you are worried about making such a drastic change, start with one cabinet as an accent piece. If you want something more subtle, try painting the interior of your cabinets in a light grey or white. Or if you want to bring out the wood grain of your kitchen cabinets, paint them with an ebony black.

  • Tip #2: Paint the wall white

You can never go wrong with a crisp white kitchen. It’s a classic look that never goes out of style. But what if you already have a kitchen that is too white? How to break up an all-white kitchen without making it look too busy?

Add some contrast with a bold, colourful backsplash or countertop. A classic black-and-white checkerboard pattern is also a great way to add interest without overwhelming the room. And if you want to add some colour but still keep things simple, try painting your cabinets in a light wood stain.

  • Tip #3: Replace hardware

New handles on your drawers and doors will create a brand-new look in no time flat! Hardware is one of the easiest ways to update your kitchen. If you’re looking for a simple change, swap out drawer pulls for something new. Or get adventurous and use an accent colour on your cabinets and drawers; it will make them pop!

  • Tip #4: Add new lighting

Lighting can make all the difference in a room by giving it dimension and depth. Try installing overhead pendants or track lighting over your island. Or a table so that you can direct light where you need it most. Swap out old ceiling fixtures with recessed cans that allow you to add more lighting while still keeping things low profile. And if you have overhead fluorescent lights, consider converting them to LED bulbs. They’re more energy efficient and will last longer than fluorescent bulbs.
