Renovate Your Kitchen And Transform Your Bedroom

May 2, 2008
Renovate Your Kitchen

They may be a dirty kitchen or old kitchen but plain white units and tiles sometimes need brightening up, so try our easy makeovers for kitchen stuff. Quick and fun to do, there're the perfect ways to make a new fashionable kitchen

Renew The Kitchen Handlers

1.First remove the old handles on the units with a screwdriver and check to see if the new designs will fit the existing holes. You may want to clean your kitchen first before remove it. If not, plug them with wood filler and drill new ones. The new handler should be sliver or stainless, prevent it from stain and easy to clean

2.Position the new handles and tighten using a screwdriver if necessary. Make sure it fit perfectly you do not want an accident especially in kitchen.

Pain a Blind

1. Buy a basic roller blind kit, measure your window frame and cut the blind to size, following the manufacturer's instructions. Then spread it out on a flat surface, ready to decorate.

2. If you're feeling adventurous you could try fabric paints, but we've used marker pens, which are less messy and easier to control. You can use them to draw freehand patterns or to stencil or trace designs onto the fabric. We created a simple pattern for our blind by marking a row of small dashes along the bottom of the fabric in three different colours.

'Change' Your Tiles

1. Cover up existing patterns as we've done here by coating the tiles which specialist tile primer or you may do it by yourself if you are capable. When they're dry, clean thoroughly with a liquid detergent you can find it at superstore or homemart . Now chose position for the new transfer designs.

2. Soak the transfer in warm water for about 20 seconds. Wipe tiles with a damp cloth and then slide the transfer off the backing paper into place.

3. Carefully smooth out any wrinkles on the surface of the transfer, then dab dry with a clean cloth.

Transform Your Bedroom

New bed linen, matching curtains and a few cleverly co-ordinated accessories are all you need to turn your bedroom into a beautiful autumn-gold retreat

Mount a Mirror

1. Remove plain cupboard doors or wood plank from their hinges and measure where the mirrors need to be positioned.

2. Screw or glue the mirrors in place. (If you've used glue, leave it to dry according to the manufacturer's instructions.)

3. Cut chosen trim into appropriate lengths and paint it to match the colour scheme - we used bronze. Leave to dry thoroughly, then fit around the mirrors using an all-purpose or hot-glue gun.

Decorate a Tray

1. Take an MDF tray kit and undercoat the sections with white rmultion or primer.

2. Use tape to mask off stripes or your own pattern and apply your chosen colour we opted for burnished gold and frosted silver. We also decorated the edges of the tray with gold paint.

3. When the paint is completely dry, peel off the masking tape. Now assemble the tray, following the kit instructions.

Change The Curtains

1. For instant style, choose ready-made curtains that come with co-ordinating bedlinen. Pull the curtain tape strings through to gather the curtains into folds and fit curtain hooks.

2. Hang the curtains knotting the tape strings to secure them.

3. Fit the bedlinen in place to complete the look.
