    5 Easy DIY kitchen projects for Easter

    Published on 8 May 2014, Thursday, 1:04 AM

    With the lure of long weekends within reach, it might be time to consider how you can use this time to accomplish certain projects in your home - and why not start in the kitchen?

    After all, much time is spent in this room, preparing food or just aimlessly looking into the fridge to see if anything new has appeared. This means there are plenty of opportunities for DIYers! Here are some of the top ways to use your Easter weekend to transform your kitchen.

    Splash of paint

    After eating all those Easter Eggs and hot cross buns, why not pop on a pair of overalls and prep your kitchen for a lick of paint?

    Painting is a great way to update the area and can provide a breath of fresh air. You don't even need to stick to the walls, either. Why not consider painting inside of glass-front cabinets? The splash of colour will be seen through the glass and can make your kitchen really pop.

    Your ceiling could be another spot to paint that is often overlooked, just make sure you are careful when you climb the ladder! Instead of traditional white, add a splash of pale blue or pink to really revitalise the area.

    Cabinet refinishing

    It is easy to breathe new life into your kitchen simply by refinishing some of the existing materials in the room.

    There are plenty of kits available, or you could take matters into your own hands by removing the cabinet doors, sanding them down and giving them a fresh coat of finish.

    Tile back splash

    There's nothing like adding a little bit of colour to your kitchen and the perfect way to accomplish this could simply be through adding a back splash in behind your sink.

    Choose from a range of beautifully coloured tiles that will be able to provide your kitchen with a little bit of an x factor.

    Add more storage space

    While you could think about constructing an additional cupboard to provide your kitchen with extra space for a growing family, there are a few other ways to add more storage to this room.

    For example, adding a tension rod can provide more vertical space in an existing cupboard and adhesive hooks are brilliant on cabinet doors.

    Replace taps and cabinet knobs

    Even small changes can make a difference to your kitchen decor, so putting in new taps and knobs is a great way to make your kitchen feel like a new room.

    Plus, replacing your taps could help you to become more environmentally friendly as there are plenty of water-saving faucets on the market these days.
