Our 3rd tip is how to transform your kitchen using coloured acrylic and needs some planning and measuring but we think you’ll agree a coloured acrylic makeover is is fairly easy and gives a premium look for very little outlay (prices start around £85 to cover a square metre).

Whether your kitchen is sunny or dark, you can use coloured acrylic to transform it.  Gleaming white acrylic can bounce light around, glossy grey acrylic can complement existing shades and shiny red acrylic can add a pop of life. Coloured acrylic can pack in personality while matching with existing units, work tops and flooring colour schemes. If your existing scheme is neutral you can definately use more lively coloured acrylic on your walls.  And, the more limited your wall space,   the bolder you might want to be with your choice of coloured acrylic.

For the biggest transformation choose a colour which is very different to what you have had before.  If you aren’t sure, you could always start with one wall which could serve as a focal wall.   And to further smarten your new look,  replace some of your kitchen accessories in a matching colour.  Our coloured acrylic splashbacks are so inexpensive we hope you’ll have some funds left to do that.
