Improve your kitchen & sell your house

January 20th 2015 by .
kitchen door

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and prospective buyers make a beeline for this room when they
view a property. It’s thought that kitchen renovation brings the greatest ROI for those looking to sell a
property. Follow these tips to maximise your kitchen’s appeal and improve your chance of a sale.

Why not enter our competition and share your favourite tip for improving your kitchen?
Just submit your tip in the comments section below, and you could win a fantastic Magimix
Nespresso Coffee machine!

Layer your lighting

Don’t forget how integral lighting is to your kitchen’s overall look; think creatively about where to put it. For example, incorporating lighting below an island unit will make it appear to float. Stylish hanging lights can easily become the new focal point of the room. Avoid overhead fluorescent lights!

lighting

kitchen appliances

Update your appliances

Not only do new appliances work much better than their predecessor, but they look fantastic. That brand new oven, or the trendy fridge-freezer, it is sure to help complete the kitchen.

Back to top

Update the plumbing fixtures

New taps can instantly make your kitchen look newer and finished. For kitchen sinks choose plumbing fixture collections that offer matching faucet, control, and sink sprayer. Brushed nickel, antique copper and brass fixtures are relatively inexpensive to replace.

kitchen cabinet

Update your cabinets

Replacing an entire kitchen can be extremely expensive, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to bring your kitchen back to life. Replacing your cabinets is cheap, easy and effective. Even just a lick of paint and a good clean can brighten up any kitchen.

Back to top

Add some rustic elements

Even if you have a modern kitchen, incorporating some rustic elements instantly adds character. Whether you choose to hang copper pots from a ceiling rack or display food prettily in jars, it will add a touch of personality to the kitchen which is important to prospective buyers.

kitchenware

Show off your kitchenware

First impressions can make or break a sale. Leaving an eye-catching gadget out during a viewing will convince potential buyers of both you and your property’s worth. Dazzle them with a fancy coffee machine or set of gleaming chef’s knives prominently displayed in the kitchen.

Back to top

Windows

Keep windows clean and clear, but not naked, as bare windows make a place feel impersonal and run down. Roman shades add a touch of elegance to any room, particularly the kitchen, although they should always be fully open. You should ensure they match with your colour scheme!

wall Display

Create a wall display

Any open kitchen wall space provides the opportunity to bring in attractive personal elements, such as photographs and artwork. This can help prospective buyers imagine how they would put their own personal stamp on the room. Wine racks and hanging utensils can also create interesting displays.

Back to top

Create a favourable aroma

It may seem like a cliché, but the smell of baking bread and brewing coffee are tried and tested techniques that provide a welcoming feel to a home. Make sure all rubbish, recycling and pet-related items are removed before showing your home. If you have a waste disposal system, run a lemon through it to eradicate any bad odours.

Back to top

favourable aroma

sink area

Don’t neglect the sink area

Whether you had new taps put in or not, the sink area must look attractive. Set fancy hand soap and lotion on a tray and get rid of old sponges and cloths. Clean taps until they shine.

Back to top

Accessorise the stove

A pretty pot or kettle on the stovetop is a welcoming touch. Just be sure the one you choose is in perfect condition — no scratched-up, battered old pans!

tea towels

Add new tea towels

Brand-new tea towels should be a must on any kitchen staging shopping list. They are obvious and cost-effective way to add a splash of colour and pattern, especially to white kitchens that can come across as bland.

Back to top

Display fresh fruit or flowers

Attractive-looking fresh fruit displayed in a fruit bowl or cake plate instantly helps to make a kitchen look pretty. Alternatively, bring in fresh flowers or plants. These are quick, easy and inexpensive ways to get your kitchen looking finished.

Back to top

Cookbooks

Display your cookbooks

Cookbooks are accessories that make a kitchen look appealing and useful, although each book should have a nice looking cover and be in good shape. If you don’t have a shelf, a small stack of cookbooks on the counter will work, too.

Back to top

Buy a woodburner

An open fire is cosy, but remote-controlled gas, electric, wood or multi-fuelled fires are easier to maintain. A fire that lights up without you having to get off the sofa or a good woodburner give the impression the house is fresh and contemporary. Whichever you go for, a burning fire will do wonders for almost any kitchen helping to provide both light and warmth.

Why White Kitchen Doors Will Always Be Popular

January 13th 2015 by .

No matter the shade or the finish, white kitchen doors will always be popular – and for good reason. White looks great in any kitchen regardless of its age, size or location. Whether you are having a complete kitchen makeover, or just replacing your kitchen doors, white brings timeless and sophisticated style to any room.

White kitchen doors provide effortless kitchen style. Shown here: Ringmer in High Gloss White.

Timeless Beauty

One of the most common worries when renovating kitchens is that in a year’s time it will look outdated. Unlike many kitchen fads, avocado and harvest gold to name a couple, white really has stood the test of time. Its clean, simple look is unmatched by any other colour and it gives you limitless design options for the rest of the kitchen. White has been popular for centuries and will no doubt be fashionable for many more to come.

Versatility

White looks stunning in so many styles and finishes and can be personalised even further with a range of edging options and handles. The traditional Shaker style of the Washington door offers timeless style and is complemented beautifully by dark handles. Alternatively, the handleless Ringmer is a modern twist on a classic door. All these doors come in a range of shades from sharp high gloss to crisp Silk white in the Trends range to the sleek, highly reflective look of the ultramodern Visions Ultragloss White. No matter the style you choose, white is so effortlessly stylish that it will look great in any kitchen.

Clean and Light

White kitchen doors and cabinets can give a room a dazzling radiance. White units will pick up what light there is available and reflect it, bouncing it of the walls, ceiling and floor to make your kitchen lighter, brighter and generally more attractive. Much like a white car, white kitchens look brilliant when spotless, providing a clean, natural look. However, they do need to be kept clean in order to maintain the stunning crispness for which white is known.

Blank Canvas

One of white’s greatest assets is that it creates a blank canvas from which you can let your design ambitions run wild.  A simple yet cleverly done kitchen in white can make a perfect backdrop for any accent colour you wish to include. By choosing coloured appliances, painting the wall your favourite colour, draping the room in brightly coloured accessories or even pairing it with a black worktop, you can add life to any white kitchen to create your perfect room. And you can be happy in knowing whatever colours you add, white is so versatile that it is sure to look great.

Regardless of why you have chosen white, you will know that you have chosen wisely. Replacement kitchen doors in white are always a good choice. You will get added reflection and light, a stylish, effortless look, a clean and hygienic kitchen and a versatile and easy colour to live with. If you are having trouble deciding on the colour for you – why not try no colour at all?

Colours shown on this website can vary from one door range to another (even if the name of the colour is the same) and may not be accurately displayed on your computer screen.
You can order free colour swatches so that you can see exactly what your chosen colour looks like before ordering.
