Your kitchen is the heart of your home, so make sure it has a pulse!
Kitchen fashions are always changing but selling isn’t the time to fork out for a refit. Getting a new kitchen plan can be a good idea. But there are lots of other ways to give your kitchen a facelift that won’t cost the earth.
Try painting tired and worn units or replacing just the doors. Even fitting new handles can give an old-fashioned unit a new lease of life. Hide the rubbish bin, clean the work surfaces and then dress them with a few well-chosen items – a bowl of fresh fruit, a bottle of extra virigin olive oil and a nice bottle of vino to finish it off.
We all like to entertain from time to time which is why (even if your idea of a perfect meal is a pizza in front of the telly) every home needs a proper dining area. In smaller homes a table in the corner of the kitchen will do just fine. You can add a folding screen to section it off and then give it a relaxing feel with soft lighting.
In larger homes the dining table tend to become a dumping ground for children’s homework, the computer and unpaid bills. Keep it clear and if you must put something on it, make it a vase of beautiful fresh flowers.
Every place needs a dining space!
