8 Top Tips
to Make Your Kitchen
Look More Luxurious

As well as being the heart of the home and one of the most well-used rooms in the house, your kitchen can also be one of the most difficult rooms to decorate. Whether you’re looking for a quick fix to update your current units, or a few tricks to make sure that your new design lasts the test of time, check out our handy tips for eight easy ways to make your kitchen look more luxurious, and transform it from drab to fab.

Upgrade Your
Appliances

While white appliances fade and discolour easily, modern stainless steel has a timeless appeal. If you’re renovating your whole kitchen, you could even integrate all of your appliances and have them built into your new units so you’ll never have to worry about matching them to your kitchen again.

Update Your
Light Fixtures

Whether it’s swapping spotlights for a statement chandelier, or adding under-unit lighting for a warm, homely glow, an unexpected or quirky lighting choice can instantly upgrade your kitchen aesthetic. Plus, if you add in a pendant fitting you can easily change and update the fixture as your decor evolves.

Make a
Design Choice

Choosing a design aesthetic that is currently ‘en vogue’ is a surefire way to make your kitchen look like it’s stepped off the pages of a magazine. However, instead of going all-out, pick a few bits such as fixtures or accessories to showcase your look – that way you can update them regularly to stay on trend without having to redo your whole kitchen every few years.

Remove
Clutter

Clutter is the number one problem in kitchen design. To avoid this, make sure you plan in ample unit space, or add a separate dresser or pantry unit to keep all of your smaller appliances hidden but close to hand. Some units even have secret worktop space and plug sockets for toasters, kettles or coffee machines.

Spring For
Tiles

Adding a tile splashback is one of the simplest ways to make your kitchen look more expensive. Aside from being durable, beautiful and easy to clean and maintain, kitchen mosaic tiles are available in a variety of styles, sizes and finishes – including mosaic brick tiles, metal mosaic tiles and glass mosaic tiles. In fact, if you’re keeping your units and worktops fairly plain, you could use mosaic tiles to add interest to the room without overpowering it.

Colour Palette

We all know that lighter, brighter colours can help to make a space look larger and airier, but did you know that they are also less likely to date and make it easier to hide dents? There’s a reason that most interior designers plump for paler shades in their own kitchens.

Update Your
Fixtures

If you want to update your kitchen without blowing the bank, upgrading your hardware is the easiest way to do it. By swapping out your old handles for sleek new ones you can give your units a facelift and make your whole kitchen look newer and more luxurious for a fraction of the cost of a remodel. You may even be able to upgrade your sink fixtures to match.

Add
Accessories

Don’t go over the top (remember the ‘no clutter’ rule), but a stylish set of glass jars, some beautifully framed artwork or a vase of fresh flowers will give your kitchen that extra edge. Little touches like this will give a welcome pop of colour in a pale kitchen and can also be updated quickly and easily to ensure that your kitchen is in-keeping with seasonal decor or new trends.
