Upgrading your kitchen doesn’t need to be exorbitant and costly. There may in fact be some simple makeover tips and tricks that will not only make your kitchen look like new again, but they will also not break the bank. In this Ideabook, we provide you with inexpensive, practical and useful kitchen revamp ideas that are chic and stylish. From replacing old light fittings for a trendy alternative, to improving the layout of your cooking space. Now let's get your kitchen into ship shape again.

1. Paint the Cabinets

A great way to make your kitchen look as new is to consider painting the old fixtures or cabinets with a fantastic upgraded colour. However, bear in mind that your cabinets will need some primer to prep them for painting, especially if they have a veneer coating. So while this example is bright and eye-catching in yellow, you may want to go with a neutral tone for subtle sophistication instead.

2. A Coat of Paint

If your cabinets are still in a usable condition, then how about adding a coat of fresh paint to your walls? This will instantly spruce up the space making it seem lighter and brighter. Consider a neutral shade, possibly white and watch the space transform from sad to sensational.

3. An Updated Sink Rail

A great way to add style to your home is by replacing your tired and worn out sink rails for fixtures that are more modern and trendy. Keep track of your utensils, linen, towels and other kitchen essentials, while making your kitchen look good too. Go with contemporary and simple rails that will blend into your kitchen without being overwhelming.

4. Brighter Lighter

Another great upgrade solution for your kitchen is the lighting, this is especially useful to tenants that do not own their home and therefore cannot make any drastic changes. It’s amazing what a difference ample lighting can make to a home. These fantastic pendant lights are an expert choice by interior designers and creates the perfect ambiance for a comfortable dining experience.

5. Vintage Tableware

You can even add some creative appeal to your kitchen by visiting a thrift store and keeping your eye out for bargains in vintage tableware, or how about saving some more by going through your grandmothers’ attic for some family heirloom pieces.

6. Glass Storage Jars
