  • Decide whether you would like to update your current kitchen or start totally afresh.
  • Look at what you already have, what you like and don’t like and make a list
  • How much storage do you need? What cupboards and utensils would be helpful to be close to hand?
  • What elements do you want to be close to together, such as the fridge and cooker?
  • Do you use your kitchen for dinner parties or do you have kids to accommodate?
  • Are you planning on staying at this property for many more years? Many buyers want to put their own stamp on a place and won’t want to change a new kitchen.

Cheap kitchen improvements

If your budget is tight and you can’t afford an entirely new kitchen, here are some simple changes you can make that will transform your current kitchen, without costing too much.

Kitchen Paint Ideas


Giving your walls or kitchen doors a lick of paint is much cheaper than replacing the whole kitchen, and a great way to add life and colour to a dark and dated kitchen. Ensure you buy the right kitchen paint. We are experienced painters and decorators in Exeter. Check out our paint idea guide or call us on 01392 925045 if you would like to book your free quote.

Create a feature wall in your kitchen

A feature wall in a kitchen is an ideal way to add character and make a BIG statement. Can you simply use colourful or patterned wallpaper, tiles, or a unique splashback to create a focal point.

Update your kitchen worktops and doors

Updating your kitchen doors and worktops is a brilliant way to bring life into your kitchen for little cost. There should be places in your local area where local kitchen manufacturers and specialist companies can supply new kitchen unit doors, drawer fronts, and worktops, enabling you to refresh your kitchen at a fraction of the price of an entirely new one.

Kitchen Lighting Ideas


Planning some new lighting can change the feel of your kitchen, you can add spotlights for a modern touch while a pendant lights to bring a country style to your kitchen. Here at complete project management (CPM) we have qualified electricians that can help you plan what it possible before you buy your new lighting.

Install a new kitchen floor

Kitchen floorings are important to be practical with after all the kitchen is the busiest room. It is a good idea to match in the floor colour palette with the kitchen cupboards. Modern porcelain tiles are the most hard wearing, as they are stain and scratch resistant whereas vinyl flooring is generally the cheapest. Starting at around £10 per square metre but doesn’t last very well as it can tear and then natural materials such as stone and wood being more expensive – anything from £20 to £100 as starting prices.
