Replace your kitchen lighting with a stylish new pendant light.  Make your pendant light the focal point of your kitchen.  Glass pendant lights are perfect for a smaller kitchen.

Down lights are also a good option and can be very effective.  Installing strip lighting under overhead cupboards can also add instant glamour to your kitchen.

Changing over your cabinetry hardware is a simple and easy way to give your kitchen a fresh updated look, especially if painting or replacing your cupboard doors are not in the budget.

There is a large range of kitchen hardware available at Bunnings, Early Settler and Schots.

New window coverings can update your kitchen space, you might want to replace the old ones with a simple blind in a neutral colour.   You would be surprised how many window furnishings change colour or deteriorate over time.

A roman blind in a soft shade with a pattern will add an elegant update to your kitchen.

Having a rug in your kitchen under your feet can also make it a more comfortable place to stand when working at your bench or sink.  Add some colour and texture with a rug or go for a soft neutral tone like a Sisal or Jute rug.

Look for something durable like an outdoor rug that can be easily cleaned.  Don’t forget to use a non slip rug underlay underneath for safety to hold your rug in place on your kitchen floor.

Update your kitchen wares with a new diner set, mugs, tea towels and cutting board.  We use these items everyday and creating a whole new look will not only lift your kitchen but create a space that you will love to be in.

Add open shelving or replace overhead cupboard doors with a glass door.  You can have some fun creating a beautiful display in your kitchen.

Cluttered drawers can be frustrating, clear out the clutter to make your kitchen more efficient and functional by using a drawer organiser.

Replace your kitchen utensils with new ones.  Ikea have a budget friendly range, if you are looking for something more glamorous for your kitchen, check out the range at Provincial Home Living.
