There is no denying the energy spring brings; as days get longer, skies get clearer, weather gets warmer, and the world gets colourful, we have an urge to refresh our living spaces and reenergise our lifestyles.
As the heart of the home, the kitchen often sets the beat of a home; a dull, dark kitchen can bring the energy down, whereas a bright, light, clean cared-for kitchen certainly has the opposite effect. Spring is the perfect time to ensure your kitchen falls into the latter category.
Colour is synonymous with the season of spring; our gardens and green spaces start to look more alive as colourful blossoms explode on vibrant green canvases, and sunshine spotlights our world. Introduce bright spring colours such as yellows, oranges, reds, pinks, purples and blues to our kitchen in a balanced sophisticated way; not too gaudy and overdone. A few floral tea towels, bright crockery, a painted feature wall or some new colourful accessories.
Natural light automatically makes a kitchen a happier place. Make sure your windows are clean and open them to keep the air in your kitchen fresh and sweet smelling. If you have fabric curtains give them a good clean and hang them in such a way, that when open they do not steal any of the sunlight. Window blinds and shutters are practical, easy-to-clean options that give you complete privacy, ventilation and light control. If your kitchen window/s do not provide enough natural light, invest in some artificial lighting. There are so many great options on the market today, so need for harsh boring fluorescent tubes!
Out with the old and in with the new; choose your most tired kitchen feature and replace or renovate to keep it up to date and looking good. Floors to counter-tops, fitted cabinets to furniture, this project need not cost a lot of money; identify your budget and then decide what your priority is. Small changes like new cabinet handles or a fresh lick of paint on the walls. Medium re-dos like replacing splash-back tiles or revitalising kitchen cabinets by replacing doors with new ones. Large scale renovations such as new flooring or full kitchen makeover. Superior has a wide range of cabinet door finishes from fresh whites to warm neutrals, wood grain to modern high-gloss colour.
Spring is the perfect time to indulge in both the pretty and the practical. Perhaps a piece of art or a beautiful vase with fresh cut flowers or some new funky colourful appliances will set the tone.
