If you have cream walls you can use a bold colour to decorate the cabinets with or just paint some of the cabinets in the kitchen. Alternatively, you could keep the cabinets a cream colour and have one wall painted a different colour. The choice is completely yours as you experiment with different colours to find the best one for your kitchen.It’s important that you prime your cabinets before you paint them.

By just replacing the fronts, this can make a difference to the whole feel of the kitchen, plus you don’t have to replace the whole kitchen, helping you to stay within your budget. The carcass of the kitchen can stay the same as you simply add new fronts in the colour of your choice, without having to spend hours painting!Change Your Kitchen StorageBy making a few changes in your kitchen can alter the appearance of the room and refresh it. Changing the kitchen storage is an easy way to achieve this, as you sort through your kitchen cupboards to organise all the utensils. You can transform old bed slats and upcycle them to hang utensils on that you regularly use. Simply add some hooks for hanging utensils and other kitchen accessories, including tee-towels. If you don’t have any bed slats that you no longer need, you can use leftover pieces of plywood and cut them into small pieces.Create A Feature WallThere are a number of ways you can create a feature wall in your kitchen, and one of the most recent ideas is to make it a chalkboard.
