The kitchen is one of the central rooms of a home. It is the privileged place where families gather to share a meal. Also, to (re) give life to this space and reclaim it for yourself, you want to embark on kitchen renovation, but without changing your furniture. Find out how to achieve it easily with these simple tips!
Change the color of your cupboard doors
To feel like you’re cooking in a new kitchen, start by repainting your closet doors. Opt for white to gain in brightness and volume. If it is the warm aspect that your room lacks, preferably choose a more daring color. Lighter, more subdued hues give kitchens a country chic style.
Before applying your new favorite color, sand the wood if necessary, or apply an undercoat suitable for the materials you are working on.
Open your cupboards
Revamping your kitchen does not necessarily mean adding to it. You can change the kitchen by removing the doors of some cupboards. Does your kitchen cabinet contain lots of storage in which you keep your dishes? Remove the doors and keep things open. Why not paint the inside of your cupboards and add a touch of originality to your room? You can also replace your doors with curtains, which will look a little retro!
Highlight your work plan
There is a part of the kitchen that you don’t always think of highlighting. This is the space behind your sink, and the space under high kitchen furniture. In these places, you can glue or fix a splashback. This inexpensive little makeover allows you to spice up a kitchen without having to do a lot of work. You will find many models from manufacturers: checkered, imitation slate, natural wood, striped. It is also a good way to hide wall coverings that have aged badly.
Repaint or change furniture handles
Handles also add to the personality of your kitchen. So when they tire you, do not hesitate to change them or give them a little facelift by repainting them. For wooden furniture, you will find the necessary accessories in flea markets, on the internet or in stores. A simple and fun way to customize your interior at a lower cost! If you want to “lighten” your cupboard doors, remove the handles and fill the holes with wood filler. To open the door, you just need to grab the bottom or the side. This contemporary style will appeal to all lovers of sleek design!
Paint a wall in a bright color
This advice is intended especially for people who want a modern kitchen. For a new breath to revive the interior decoration, it suffices to repaint one of the walls of the room in a very bright color. Red is on the rise. It energizes a slightly old-fashioned kitchen with a lick of paint. The effect is guaranteed, especially in a white kitchen. As for light wood kitchens, they will go perfectly with turquoise blue or lime green. If your appliances or furniture are the same color, or similar shades, it is good practice to use this shade on your wall. You can also add walls or change the walls too.

Expand space with shelves
Maybe what you lack in your kitchen is just space. To give your old kitchen a new look and visually gain a few square inches, opt for wall shelves. These decorative elements can be fixed above worktops, under the facades of furniture hung high up or near sinks. Place the objects and utensils that you use regularly and that clutter your table: recipe books, mugs. The shelves in oak or solid wood will give a rustic note to your room. If you are looking for more of a modern style, choose light shelves.
