4 ways to revamp your kitchen for summer

After a year spent mostly at home, many people are ready to revamp their kitchens this summer. After spending months staring at the same four walls, it is natural to want a fresh look for post-lockdown entertaining and family gatherings. If you are eager to give your tired kitchen an overhaul for the summer, how can you make your kitchen look fresh and new?

Use bold block colours

One of the best ways to give your tired kitchen decor a whole new look for the summer months is a repaint or re-tile. Try using bright and audacious blocks of colour. Reds, blues and greens are all bright, sunny colours that are appealing to the eye and on-trend for summer. These bold colour statements can a stylish dimension to kitchens and really bring the room up to date.

Opt for concealed appliances

Hiding away big and bulky white goods and appliances behind stylish cupboard doors will give your kitchen a more streamlined and modern appearance. It allows for a more discreet and minimalist aesthetic. Try adding some high tech gadgets to the room too, to really bring it up to date. Of course, for that truly modern look, ensure they are concealed gadgets!

Add relaxed seating to your kitchen

If you have a spacious kitchen, try adding a sofa to the room. As the kitchen increasingly becomes the focal point of the home for many families and home-based gatherings resume once again, this will be a welcome addition for all the family, allowing them to unwind inside on hot summer days.

Try stylish splashbacks

Adding a stylish splashback to your kitchen will give it a clean, modern and stylish appearance that is perfect for summer. Kitchen splashback panels are available in a wide range of colours, including chic blue, lavender, apple green and panther black.

Solid perspex colours are not your only option, as you can also find many varied and beautiful designs and prints as well as glittery creations to add a touch of class to your kitchen. Whatever your kitchen decor, there is a perfect new splashback that is ideally suited to your personal tastes. With splashbacks available in a range of materials including natural crystal, Perspex™ and glass, a splashback can help you give your kitchen the revamp it requires.

Which material is right for me?

3mm Natural Crystal Finish

3mm Uncoated (natural crystal 3mm) - A thinner 3mm thick alternative to our 5mm thick panels. These are much more flexible than our 5mm panels, making them perfect for slight curves or situations where ultra-light applications are needed. These do not have scratch, mould and chemical resistant properties.

5mm Natural Crystal Finish

5mm Uncoated (natural crystal) - As the 3mm Natural Crystal but 5mm thick.

6mm Toughened Glass

Highly scratch resistant, toughened glass. Our glass is low-Iron…meaning that it is as crystal clear as possible. This stops the green tint that you see on most glass, meaning the colour will be unaltered and seen as it was intended. Tough and heavyweight items. Bespoke, unique, classy look. Our glass is heat resistant so can be used behind direct heat sources. You can have any colour or design…just as all of our acrylics.
