Summer seems like a long time ago now – the clocks go back this weekend, and the weather is fairly dreary. Our ‘My Summer Kitchen’ Pinterest competition ended a few weeks ago, and because the standard of entries was so high, it’s taken us a little while to decide on a winner. But we did finally manage …

A minimalist look in the kitchen is great: fresh, timeless and easy to keep clean – but the heart of your home should be cosy too. The place where you cook, eat, chat over a cup of tea, and unwind with a glass of wine needs to be comfortable and inviting. Effortless cool is …
The kids have all left home, or maybe you’ve just sent the youngest off to university. You’ve got the house to yourself once more – which means it’s time to do all those little things you’ve been putting off. Like giving your kitchen a bit of a refresh. It doesn’t have to be expensive though, or involve weeks of hard graft – simply replacing the kitchen doors and drawer-fronts will give the room a new lease of life, and you can do it in a matter of hours. Now that sticky fingerprints on the door-fronts and small hands getting into cupboards when they shouldn't are distant memories, you can create a kitchen that's just for you. Maybe it's time for a bold, eye-catching colour like red or metallic blue, or maybe you want a monochrome palette that's elegant and timeless. Whatever you're looking for, we can help you bring your dream kitchen home.
The new home-owners
You’ve finally got the keys to your new home and you can’t wait to make it truly yours. You might be wondering where to even start – how about the kitchen? From that first cup of tea in the morning right through to your evening meal, you’ll be spending a lot of time in the kitchen, so it needs to suit you and your lifestyle perfectly. If the existing kitchen feels a little tired and dated, or if you simply don’t love it, replacing the kitchen doors is an easy and affordable way to give the whole room a new look. White gloss-finish doors will instantly brighten up the space - ideal if the room is small or doesn't get much natural light. If the kitchen is your natural habitat and you love to host, a bold colour like red will give you a warm, vibrant space for entertaining. If timeless style is more your thing, Shaker doors in a light woodgrain will last you for years to come.
Whether you’ve got a single property or a substantial portfolio, you've got plenty to think about already, so making some quick updates to the look of the house or flat shouldn't be stressful or time-consuming. The kitchen is probably the most important room in a property – when prospective tenants look round, the kitchen is often where they'll first picture themselves. Making coffee and toast in the mornings, rustling up dinner after work, hosting friends at weekends. If you've got a kitchen that needs some TLC before new tenants move in, replacing the cabinet doors is an easy, cost-effective way to transform the whole room. And there's no need to pay a kitchen fitter to install the doors, as we've got a range of materials that will guide you through the process – from measuring units to adjusting hinges.
Looking to sell your house
It’s time to move on. Perhaps your family is growing and you need more space for the kids. Maybe you're swapping city lights for country lanes, or even vice versa. Before you get the estate agent round, get your kitchen looking ship-shape. It's called the heart of the home for a reason; it's where all the action happens. Your prospective buyers will be picturing themselves there – cooking, eating and entertaining – so give them the perfect canvas. Replacing the kitchen doors and drawer-fronts is a low-cost, low-stress way to give the whole room an instant lift. Brighten a small kitchen with gloss-finish doors in a light colour, or choose a finish in ivory, cream or a pale woodgrain – neutrals like this are highly versatile and will help potential buyers envisage themselves living in the property.
5 reasons why replacement kitchen doors beat a new fitted kitchen
With a fitted kitchen costing many thousands of pounds its easy to see why so many people are choosing to replace just their cupboard doors.
It can take weeks, even months to fit a complete new kitchen, whereas you can quickly replace your kitchen doors in just a day or so.
Fitting replacement kitchen doors is a simple and straightforward DIY project which can be attempted by anyone with a reasonable level of experience.
Replacing your kitchen cupboard doors has almost none of the mess and disruption associated with fitting a complete kitchen.
Nobody likes creating unnecessary waste, and ripping out a perfectly good kitchen just to change the style or colour of the doors is not only wasteful, but it's expensive too.
