Have you moved into a new home and can’t stand the kitchen cupboards? Have you been in your house for years and decided that it’s time for a makeover? When it comes to kitchen cupboards I’m a bit picky – can’t stand those all-brown classic kitchen cupboards and, honestly, I’m not a fan of the modern all-white handless kitchen cupboards. Both of these styles are dull to me, there’s not much personality or colour, and for me, a home without personality isn’t homely. Might as well be just a show home, you know?
Anyway, rant over. Today, we’re speaking about kitchen cupboards and how to refresh them. I’m all for colourful kitchen cupboards that make your kitchen that bit more special. After all, we tend to spend a lot of time in our kitchens, so it’s essential to make it feel and look its best. I love spending time in my kitchen – whether I’m making a quick healthy breakfast or a full-on Sunday lunch, some of my favourite memories are made in the kitchen.
