Whether you're renovating your kitchen to prepare your home for sale, or are simply looking for a summer project, follow these tips to help get your piece of Hawthorne real estate looking better than ever.
Update the paint
As with other areas of the house, a simple coat of paint can work wonders in making a room seem more bright and fresh.
A semigloss paint is ideal for kitchens as it is more resistant to humidity than other types of paint, and can withstand stains, chipping and scuffing more easily.
You could consider adding a pop of colour as a feature wall, or completely redoing your existing paint in a fresh, modern tone.
If you're constantly running out of jotter pads, why not paint a portion of your kitchen in chalkboard paint? You could keep it confined to a small area or spread it across a wall to make writing supermarket lists easier than ever.
You could even use your new blackboard to write recipes and menus on, or let your kids run wild with pictures and notes. The best thing about this is when you get sick of a design or have done everything on your list, you can simply wash the chalk off and start again.
