You can choose to have a new worksheet installed, but this is often an expensive solution. What you can also do is keep your existing worktop and give it a new color. For example, you can paint your worktop. Is this not possible? Choose a special foil with which you can pimp your existing worktop. This is a relatively affordable solution and fairly easy to do yourself. The advantage is that you can choose from many different designs. So there is definitely something that suit your wishes.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets

Besides the fact that you can also cover your kitchen cabinets with foil, painting in this case is often just a little bit easier. Before you start painting it is important to be aware of the material you are going to paint. Paint often sticks better if you first make the cabinets free of grease and sand them. In some cases primer also works better than other types of paint, but this all depends on the material of your kitchen. If in doubt, always consult a paint specialist.

Replace a Few Components

Sometimes the trick is to replace only 1 or 2 parts, which often results in a completely different kitchen. For example, by replacing only the handles of your kitchen, you will find that your kitchen immediately has a different look. Another possibility to give your kitchen a completely different look is to replace a kitchen cabinet with a glass door. You’ll see that your kitchen changes completely. The possibilities are endless!

Replace the Faucet

A faucet is very decisive for the look of a kitchen. Depending on the faucet you choose, this installation does not have to be expensive at all. In fact, a new faucet is quite easy to install yourself. Just make sure that you always turn off the main tap when doing this!  

Use Accessories

Don’t feel like changing a lot of things in your kitchen, but still want to give it a completely different look? Then choose individual accessories, such as a new salt and pepper grinder, new cookware, glasses, oven gloves, a plant and so on. You can make it as fancy as you want!
