4 tips for upcycling your kitchen
The most sustainable choice you can make is to keep your kitchen and upcycle it! We have gathered 4 tips for ways you can give your home a kitchen renewal with a fresh new look to make it last a few more years.
1. Change the details
Explore the details of your kitchen to see what small changes you can make towards your kitchen renewal. Changing handles from brass to cast iron or maybe switching out the colour of the moulding between the drawers can make a big difference, Then add accessories to underline the new style or colour you have added.
