Design Your Dream Kitchen on a Budget


We’ve been in our house just over 4 years now. For anyone who has ever bought a house or even rented one that you were allowed to do up, you know the struggle of wanting to do everything straight away just simply not having the funds to do it.

That’s why it’s taken me so long to get a kitchen I really love. But this still had to be a labour of love. We were unable to afford a brand new kitchen. I think that would have cost around £6k to do. So I took to Pinterest. Got lots of inspiration and set about planning how I could get a kitchen I loved with some improvements and what we already had.

I’ve still got to update my blind for something in white. I would also like a new dining situation, maybe a white table and pink chairs. The problem here is that I don’t have a massive space but I’d like it to seat 4 people. I’m also going to add some art to the wall you can’t see here, anything to bring more colour and intrigue into the space.

I thought I’d share these pictures of how the kitchen looked before. The picture at the very bottom is what the kitchen looked like when we moved in. The picture directly below is what we managed to get it to, which involved getting rid of the dreaded artex.

Some of these items were kindly sent to me and will be marked with a *
