The kitchen. The place where culinary magic happens; where cultures entwine and where, on the odd occasion, your kid’s attempt at making dinner turns into shambolic mess fest the likes of which can take hours to rectify.

It is both the most glorious and frustrating room in the home, where things can go deliciously right and disastrously wrong in an instant. For these reasons, the space should be absolutely stunning.

There are many ways this can be done, including the installation of the utterly stylish black kitchen mixer, but don’t overlook these other incredible ways to beautify this most important room:

1. Put away the little things & declutter the space

This is a room that should be as stress-free as possible right? And one of the ultimate things that creates stress in the home (apart from electricity bills, right?) is clutter.

It can be in any room in the house, but it’s absolutely woeful in the home cookery, and therefore all the little things, you know, the stuff you don’t use every day, should be put away.

Of course, you need your kettle and toaster handy every morning, but other appliances that you don’t use on the reg but keep on the bench should be put away until they are vitally required.

2. Give it a contemporary coat of paint

If you want to provide the space with a more minimalist, elegant look, then don’t shy away from giving it a brand new coat of paint! If your old space is suffering from a daggy old sky blue or a depressingly kitchy red look, why not invigorate the space with something more contemporary?

Think beiges, high-gloss, grey and matte finishes, all of which give the space a new, bold and luxurious feel.

3. Install new fittings

You may not notice it in an instant but outdated fittings always make a space look old and tired. Whether it’s your cabinetry, draws, handles or sinks, it might just be time that you invested a new vibe into the space by installing some new fittings.

You can experiment a lot with how you want the fittings to match the space’s aesthetic, with the likes of the black kitchen mixer blending beautifully with lighter shaded benchtops and bright paint jobs.

4. Grab some new appliances

If you’ve had your toaster for more than five years then congratulations – you’re one of the select few that didn’t see the thing go zap after just a few month’s usage!

But this isn’t to say that said toaster and other appliances aren’t past their peak both functionally and aesthetically. If you’re really looking to breathe new life into this pivotal space, maybe it’s time to enlist some stunning new appliances that will not only make life easier but will give the space a stunning new aesthetic!

5. Get a little marble in there

You know it, and we certainly know it, too: marble is a dream for luxurious kitchens. This stylish, ultra-classic stone has a timeless aesthetic that will never run out of fashion, even when you decide it’s time for the big reno!

It’s safe to say that when this time comes, the marble benchtop will be the only remaining fixture – they are just so beautiful and give any space a gorgeous, ultra-chic aesthetic.

So, these are the ultimate ways you can invigorate your space, which ones do you think will work for you?
