With lighter nights, bird song in the morning and a definite pink tinge on bare trees, spring is definitely well on her way. And just as autumn heralds the coming of winter and wrapping up, spring is about fresh starts and new beginnings – and what better way to welcome spring than by giving the heart of the home an injection of new life.
We’ve got some simple tips to give your kitchen a refresh – just in time for the Easter weekend!
Inject Some Colour
Injecting colour into your kitchen can transform your space. Whether you go for a touch-up of your current colour palette or you go bold and create a feature wall, you’ll instantly feel reinvigorated by the change.
Fresh neutrals are perfect for spring, just make sure to choose colours with a warm undertone. And if you’re feeling bold? Why not inject a pop of colour like a cobalt blue or neon orange.
Add Wall Art
Gallery walls are a great way to refresh a space and will help give your home an identity. To create a gallery wall in your kitchen first pick the space you want your wall art to be displayed and choose images that have a similar colour palette or theme.
Ideally your art should be different sizes and mix up whether they’re landscape or portrait. Before hanging up your art, you’ll want to practice different layouts on the floor to make sure you get it right.
And remember, this isn’t about perfection, but rather a statement of your style.
There’s a reason why modern kitchens are in vogue. Thanks to their sleek lines and clever (and often customizable) storage solutions they provide the perfect antidote to modern day living. No matter the size of your kitchen and age of your property, modern kitchens just work.
And with summer just around the corner (finger’s crossed!), you’ll need a BBQ preparation space, not to mention somewhere to entertain friends and family.
Switch up your Soft Furnishings
The fastest way you can refresh your kitchen is by swapping out the kitchen curtains or window fixtures for something lighter and brighter. Linens in soft pastels, gingham materials, and kitsch ditsy florals all work well for summer months and can instantly brighten the space.
And of course, if you have a kitchen/diner, then carry the colours and fabric through into other soft furnishing such as cushions, tablecloths, and even napkins.
Bringing the outside in is the ideal way to welcome spring into your home – and make it smell incredible! If you have a deep-set windowsill, a herb garden makes the perfect addition to often wasted space, and will provide you with plenty of fresh ingredients – perfect for those summer salads.
