Clever Ideas For Making Your Kitchen Look More Expensive

While we’re in lockdown, there has never been a better time to perfect the interior of your home. With so many of us having more time on our hands, there’s no excuses for getting in touch with our creative side in order to give our house the makeover we’ve been daydreaming about for years.

The kitchen is the heart of the home- and if you’re thinking of selling, it’s also the room that has the biggest effect on your property’s overall value. Whether you have a brand new top-of-the range kitchen, or a more rustic style, there are always ways that you can make it look more expensive. Here are 5 clever ideas that won’t break the bank!

Use Storage Jars
There’s nothing worse than seeing granite worktops that are cluttered with the overflow from your pantry, but there’s an easy way to get around this. Glass storage jars are not only effortlessly chic, but they’re a great way to keep your pantry products organised. They also won’t look like an eyesore sitting out on your workstations.

Why not fill each different jar with non-perishables like pasta, rice and cereal, and add a personalised label for each one?

Get A Coffee Machine
Small appliances are always a good way to make your kitchen look more expensive. You can get a really swanky looking coffee machine that not only will stand out in your kitchen, but the scent of freshly brewed coffee is always really inviting too. Opt for a machine that co-ordinates with your kitchen to make it really fit in well. 

Think About Your Lighting
Lighting can either have the ability to make a room look really cheap, or incredibly upmarket. Copper lampshades can be a great modern addition to a kitchen, or why not consider some under-cupboard lighting to really make your kitchen shine?

There’s something effortlessly attractive, classy and modern about under-cupboard lighting- and while your kitchen will look expensive, this type of lighting is relatively cheap to install. As a bonus, these lights can also provide you better visibility for tasks such as cooking and chopping vegetables.

Any-Lamp offer a range of LED G9 bulbs which are perfect for use under your cupboards. Since these bulbs are LED, you save on energy costs but retain the desired light quality, meaning you don’t have to worry about how much you’re spending. To check out the different types of G9 bulbs on offer, take a look at Any-Lamp.co.uk.

Update Cupboard Handles
Another simple yet effective way to make your kitchen look more expensive is by updating your cupboard handles. Believe it or not, the type of handles on your cupboard can really date your kitchen. Handles in stainless steel or copper will give your kitchen the modern touch you’re looking for.

Add Some Flowers 
Fresh flowers have the ability to make any room look more expensive, but they look especially beautiful sitting on your kitchen counter. Not only that, but your kitchen will smell amazing, and will soon be the envy of all your dinner party guests.

Refresh Your Appliances
If your appliances are looking a little tired, then it may be time to get some new ones. Most shops offer the most common appliances (such as kettles and toasters) in matching sets, which can instantly make your kitchen seem more modern and expensive.

Stick to blacks, coppers and silvers- and if your kitchen is pretty neutral, who not got for a pop of colour like red?
