When we talk about house renovations, we usually mention kitchen renovations because it is one of the spaces that requires the most renovation.
As a general rule, it is the place (along with the bathroom) that most needs to take advantage of space. But the truth is that, as much as we want to reform the kitchen, there are many factors that pull us back.
Among the main reasons are the economic investment that must be made, the time that must be dedicated, the inconvenience of being full of debris everywhere and the discomfort of not being able to cook in our own home for a while.
But today we want to tell you that there are easy, fast and economical ways to make a kitchen renovation without having to do construction work and change our routines.
HOW TO RENOVATE A KITCHEN WITHOUT BUILDING WORK AND IN AN ECONOMICAL WAY
1. Paint as a great ally
Blessed colors and blessed the paint that allows us to make a kitchen reform without works quickly and respecting the style that we want at that time.
A good option is to paint the furniture on the outside and move away from the typical wood color. To do this, we simply have to check that it can be painted on top of the furniture material and choose what color we want to decorate it with. We can even use two tones to differentiate the top and the bottom so that it is not so monotonous.
Another alternative is to paint the kitchen tiles. In many cases, we have very old styles or very bright tile colors that do not fit our personality. Therefore, far from removing them and putting another material, it is much better to buy a paint for tiles and paint over them. In a few hours we will have a totally renovated space.
2. Stylish faucets
Reforming a kitchen without building work is as simple as simply changing the faucets. And it is that doing so helps a lot to change the aesthetics of the kitchen. This small detail allows us to make a leap of style and get that renovation that we are looking for.
But how to choose the faucet that best suits our kitchen?
There are as many types of faucets as there are tastes: with one or two handles, hinged, fixed, extendable and even in different materials and colors.
The combination of black faucets combined with wood countertops or neutral colors is an increasingly popular trend in kitchen renovations.
3. Modern lamps
Far gone are the typical kitchen lights with tube lighting where little space is left for decoration. Now, the trend is to give lamps the same importance as any other element. Pendant lamps are a good ally for the part of the kitchen where the dining table is located or for the countertop area.
Depending on the material and the combination we make with the rest of the furniture, we can have a rustic style kitchen (with wood tones as protagonist), industrial (with high ceilings and a mix of materials such as iron, concrete and brick) and even minimalist (with neutral colors and few decorative elements). Whatever the style we want for our kitchen, having hanging lamps is undoubtedly synonymous with personality and modernity.
4. Materials on top of the surface
If we want a total renovation of our kitchen that goes beyond changing only some elements, a good option is to use materials that do not need to remove the ones we already have. Sounds good, doesn't it? This allows us to give a radical change to the space without having to invest in a very expensive work in terms of time and money.
One of the materials that allows us to do all this is the microcement. Using microcement in kitchens, specifically in the front, is a perfect option to achieve a new and original style.
In just a few hours we can have a totally different space away from the typical tiled kitchens and closer and closer to kitchens with style, design and elegance.
5. Decoration in every corner
Sometimes we forget that the kitchen is an important place in the house like any other. In the same way that we take care of the decoration in the living room or bedroom, we should do it in the kitchen. Combining the furniture with the kitchenware or with different decorative elements is a good idea. A very common trend is to mix antagonistic styles: rustic and modern go very well together in a kitchen.
Another option that brings a lot of vitality is to put plants on top of the countertop or near the window.
It is very easy to reform a kitchen without works and economically. With all these tricks that we have given you, you no longer have an excuse to renovate yourself that space in which we spend so much time and that needs so much attention.
