FOR THE EYES
SPLASH SOME COLOUR
QUICK, CHEAP OR SIMPLE IDEAS TO SPRUCE UP YOUR KITCHEN
REVAMP DOORS AND UNITS
Overhaul your kitchen on a budget by updating the
units. New cupboard fronts revive a tired room; try
sleek and shiny for a modern vibe, or source secondhand distressed doors to imitate a country cottage.
If you have wooden cabinets, give them a new lick
of paint - pastel and neutral shades open up small
spaces, brights contrast with a contemporary kitchen,
and rich greys make a luxury statement.
For a smaller project, choose eye-catching hardware, such as quartz stone or porcelain designs, to
replace old door handles.

Walls are a blank canvas. Try bold
colours to stand out against
functional units - the brightness
will give the room an instant lift.
Crown has jumped on the trend
with its Breatheasy Kitchen paint
collection - try this warm red
Toffee Apple on a feature wall,
contrasted with grey Spice Jar.
Pops of colour can be splashed
in unexpected places, too, such
as the inside of display
cabinets, or add a sunny
hue to walls behind
