Upgrade Your Kitchen Without Breaking the Bank

Let’s face it, your kitchen sees a lot of action. Cooking, prepping and wiping all take a toll on surfaces and walls. So if your over-worked kitchen is in need of a little TLC, but you’re concerned about the expense, here are 4 areas to focus on in order to upgrade your kitchen quickly, easily and on a budget.

Walls and Ceilings

There’s no better way to imbue your kitchen with a clean and fresh atmosphere than by giving the walls and ceilings a coat of bright, white paint. This will make your kitchen feel bigger and also allow light in. If pure white is a bit too much for your tastes, try an off-white, grey or beige for a similar effect.


Did you know that most cabinetry can be upgraded with just a quick splash of paint? This simple task can totally transform your kitchen, making it feel fresh and new. If you decide on this option, make sure to start off with an undercoat before applying the topcoat.

In terms of colour, darker shades are trending at the moment, but your choice should be dictated by the needs of the kitchen as a whole.

If you’re not sure that your cabinetry can be painted, please give us at Pelham Painters a call and we’ll be happy to advise.

Kitchen Counters

If your kitchen counter is worse for wear, you might be bracing yourself to shell out a lot of cash for a full replacement. Keep that wallet closed, though, because you can liven up your countertop with a simple and affordable epoxy paint. These are available in a range of colours and provide a clean, shiny upgrade to old, beat-up counters.

Paint-Free Upgrades

Here at Pelham Painters, we believe wholeheartedly in the value of paint. However, when it comes to upgrading your kitchen, sometimes a simple de-clutter and style overhaul can work wonders. You can bring in some plants, buy a new crockery set and replace your old toaster. And if you pack away items that don’t get used very often, you’ll free-up counter space and give the kitchen some breathing room.
