If you believe that the kitchen is the most important room in the house, you’re probably always looking for new ways to improve yours. On average, kitchens need to be renovated every 10-15 years, which can be quite expensive in terms of both money and time. If you’re not ready to make such a big commitment, why not try adding some luxurious improvements? It doesn’t have to be a costly task, either!
The next time you’re in your kitchen, take a good look around and determine which parts could do with refining. To help you, we’ve put together 5 ways you can add luxury to your kitchen – without the hefty price tag.
1) Marble counter tops
This decadent feature is a really simple yet effective way to add some luxury to your kitchen, and it shouldn’t take too long to implement this specific improvement. A vast selection of marble countertops can be accessed online and scheduled for delivery, and then all you have to do is remove your existing countertops and replace with your chosen marble beauties!
If you’re not too handy or familiar with DIY, we do recommend hiring professional help to ensure the swap goes as smoothly as possible. The last thing you want to do is make a huge mistake that’ll set you back financially and in terms of time.
2) Stainless steel appliances
A luxury kitchen calls for stainless steel appliances, especially once you’ve had your marble countertops installed. Find a toaster, microwave, and kettle in this kind of material and your kitchen will look like something straight out of an interior design magazine. You can find these appliances in your local homeware shop, so you don’t have to worry about spending too much money.
3) Quirky dining table and chairs
In this decade, quirky and luxurious go hand in hand! Instead of completely renovating your entire kitchen, we suggest adding a piece of new furniture – like dining table and chairs – to create a talking point. This simple change has so much power and doesn’t have to cost much! Anything with metal furniture legs is a sure winner in our eyes.
4) Impressive light feature
If the kitchen really is your favourite room in the house, why would you want to keep it in darkness? Invest in an impressive light feature to highlight all of your favourite parts and make a luxurious statement that doesn’t break the bank. There are some fantastic options to suit a vast array of tastes and budgets, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Adding plants to your kitchen is a refreshing way to inject some opulence into the space, and the benefits of plants exceed how they look. House plants improve concentration and productivity (by up to 15%), reduce stress levels, and boost your mood, so, there’s even more reason to purchase and place plants decoratively in your kitchen.
English Ivy, Aloe Vera, and the Spider Plant are all fantastic options that we’d recommend, but really any plant will be great!
