Quick Kitchen Makeover Before Christmas

Perhaps you’ve suddenly decided to host Christmas this year. Or, you’ve been planning to spruce up your kitchen, but like the rest of us, Christmas had crept up on you and now there’s no time for a full overhaul. Replacing an entire kitchen is no quick and or cheap option - so if you’re planning a full re-design, it looks like you’ll be waiting till next year. However, if you feeling like your kitchen just needs a bit of a refresh for the festive season you’re in luck! Use this post for some inspiration for how you can give your kitchen a makeover on a budget before the big day arrives!

Prioritise what needs updating

When it comes to kitchen makeovers, it’s all about working with what you’ve got. Whether you’re limited on time, budget or both - it’s about assessing the current state of your kitchen and thinking about which elements you can keep or update first. For example, instead of changing your tiles, worktops and cupboard doors - is there a colour you could paint the doors to better tie these aspects together? Or could you cover your kitchen worktop with laminate for a refresh? By deciding what parts of your kitchen you can work with, what can wait and what really needs some work - you can save yourself time and money.

Quick fixes

With just under a month until the big day, where you can carry out quick fixes and leave the bigger jobs such as changing worktops or cupboard doors until you have more time available. Some of the quick fixes you could carry out are:

  • Laminate worktops - Rather than installing a completely new worktop, why not simply cover yours with laminate? This kitchen makeover hack is loved by many, due to it’s fast, versatile and cost-effective nature.
  • Changing hardware - Final touches really are everything. By changing cupboard handles, taps and hooks you can really spruce up your space, and bring a new lease of life to your current kitchen.
  • Feature wall - Introducing a feature wall is still one of the quickest and cheapest ways you can update your space, without having to do something major to the room.
  • Lighting - How about introducing some colour changing LED lighting into your kitchen? You can transform the ambience of your kitchen and give it a completely new feel. Not to mention how much you can save on those energy bills!

Festive touches

Introducing festive accessories not only adds Christmas charm to your space, but it can help to distract from elements you’re not so happy with, and plan on changing later down the line. Why not introduce some Christmas charm in some of the following ways?

  • Dress up the window with a festive display.
  • Put out some festive towels and tablecloths.
  • Put wreaths and garlands out - the perfect Christmas accessory in any room!
  • Update your table centre with some festive accessories; holly, cinnamon sticks and pinecones are always a firm favourite.
  • Light some candles, you’re kitchen might not look how you want it to, but at least it smells amazing!
  • You could even put a small Christmas tree in there if you’ve got the room.
