Kitchen Renovation: Simple Tips for a Refresh

July 25 2018

The kitchen is the thriving hub of your home and giving it a refresh goes a long way. However, kitchen renovations can be a strain on your wallet if you’re not careful. Follow our tips below to see how simple and easy transforming your kitchen can be.

The power of wallpaper

Kitchen wallpaper may not be the most customary idea, but why settle for conventional when you can have something amazing? Light coloured wallpaper, like our Abstract Linear Wallpaper, on the main wall of the room will create an eye popping feature.   

Highlight the little things

It’s easy to get caught up in the big picture of a DIY project. Don’t overlook the little details in your revamp either, they can have a bigger impact than you might think. Changing up your light switches and powerpoint covers, tap fixtures and cupboard handles will modernise the room in ways you never thought possible.

Open shelves

Open wall shelves can create a great sense of spaciousness and actively encourage you to reduce clutter. A simple plank and bracket style shelf will free you up from claustrophobic wall-to-wall cabinet displays.

Splash out on a splashback

A tiled splashback is a popular choice, but why do what everyone else is doing? A botanical print wallpaper splashback, like our Tropic Strelitzia Wallpaper, adds a new dimension of texture and interest to an area of the kitchen you normally wouldn’t look twice at. Our simple peel and stick wallpaper means you can cover the kitchen splashback easily. We recommend covering it with a glass panel to protect it from water damage. 

Light it up

Pendant lighting over your kitchen island is not only a contemporary looking fixture but a practical update to your standard kitchen fare. Pendant lighting creates pools of light that highlight one focus area, perfect to place above a kitchen island or bench that is going to hold all of your focus.    



By now your mind is racing with ways you can spice up your kitchen. Let the fun take over and look at our most popular wallpaper prints to get inspired and start renovating.
