How can I renovate my kitchen cheaply?
Whether it’s investing in more affordable kitchen furniture or decor, or using leftover trims to add some finishing details to the space to help you cut back on costs, there are a number of ways you can renovate your kitchen on a budget without breaking the bank. Whether it’s a big or small renovation, save money and find a range of inspiration with our cheap kitchen ideas.
Kitchen splashback ideas on a budget
A great way to add small details to your kitchen that still make a statement, kitchen splashbacks are not only practical but also provide the perfect solution for uplifting your interior. Available in a variety of styles and appearances, our high quality kitchen splashbacks can help bring some extra character to your kitchen. Whether you’re looking to add these behind your sink as a practical solution to protect your walls from grease and food splatters, or you’re taking a more decorative approach by covering more space behind counters, there are many ways to use these to elevate your space.
Helping you save on extra costs by avoiding hiring professional help, splashbacks are the perfect do-it-yourself project and can be installed within a day. Just use our handy PVC wall panel installation guide which details all the tools you’ll require, and takes you through the process step-by-step. Once fitted, they are simple to maintain and can be wiped clean after cooking.
If you’re looking to add a chic and contemporary style to your kitchen, the Vox Motivo light wood panels provide the perfect solution. Not only do these eye-catching panels feature a high quality 3D design, but these are also 100% waterproof and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth when they start to get dirty.
Budget kitchen floor ideas
If you’re looking to change your kitchen floor, your first thought might be to use a more common material such as vinyl. However, we would instead recommend using SPC flooring over vinyl. Generally, this is because SPC flooring is more affordable, and also has the ability to resist higher temperatures compared to vinyl. This ultimately means you won’t have to worry about fitting this type of flooring around your radiator pipes. The flooring is also 100% waterproof, meaning it’s perfect for installing in kitchens or bathrooms, and only has a very slim chance of expanding after installation, unlike other flooring types where the risk can be higher, so it’s likely that SPC will stay perfectly fitted for longer.
Made with a contemporary and natural feel, the Leven Oak Herringbone SPC flooring makes an ideal addition to any kitchen. Whether you have a busy household, or own pets, the flooring features antibacterial properties to help keep the space clean, while the herringbone pattern adds a luxurious feel.
How can I make my old kitchen look new?
If you’re looking to breathe new life into your old kitchen, but want to complete this renovation on a budget, there are many cheap but effective kitchen ideas that can be carried out in a quick and easy way. If you’re looking to make a more significant update to your kitchen, you might find that you can modernise your interior with a statement feature wall using our high quality and affordable collection of PVC wall panels.
Providing a suitable solution for helping to completely transform an older kitchen, PVC panels are also highly practical. If you’ve been cooking for a while, or running the hot tap, our versatile panels are made with moisture resistant and waterproof features, making them perfect for using in a kitchen environment.
The Vox Motivo modern piedra panels are easy to keep clean and install, requiring almost no maintenance and a wipe-clean style. With a simple and versatile design, these modern wash-effect panels can be installed horizontally or vertically. Requiring little to no maintenance, the cladding can be easily wiped clean with no grouting required.
Modernising your kitchen also doesn’t have to require big style changes, and could be as simple as making a change to a small accessory. If you’re looking for a smaller, budget-friendly kitchen refresh, we recommend switching out the finishing touches in your space, such as cabinet handles and taps. This can help you create certain focal points within the space to achieve a statement interior, without having to spend too much on materials.
