Updating Your Kitchen On A Budget

Updating your kitchen on a budget? We have done the same and have some helpful tips to get you started. Following our kitchen, bathroom and toilet refit I decided to change the colour scheme to purple, of course! I was worried when we started as I didn’t really think updating your kitchen on a tight budget was possible. Luckily there are some fab deals around!

Updating Your Kitchen On A Budget

Updating Your Kitchen On A Budget

You may remember I managed to get a purple microwave, toaster and kettle all for a reduced price as I waited for a deal. I snapped them up as soon as the price dropped and was really pleased with myself. These items can really help you work out the rest of your kitchen too. They don’t have to be overly expensive to look nice or do the job either. I picked up all 3 appliances for just £60!



There are some great microwave deals out there as well as kettles, toasters and more. Once you have your small appliances and main colour scheme you can easily find items to match if you shop around. I chose mostly purples for my kitchen with powdered lilac walls and deep purple appliances to match. With the black worktops and light wooden drawers & cupboards, it keeps our kitchen looking and feeling clean and fresh!

Updating your kitchen on a budget is more than possible with so many great deals around. I managed to find a lovely dishwasher for less than £200 in silver which goes really well with the colour scheme we went with. I would never have been able to decide what colour for our main appliances if I hadn’t found the purple microwave first!

Our appliances were all mixed colours until we began updating our kitchen. We replaced our washing machine that broke with a lovely silver one too and already had a silver fridge freezer. We are looking at eventually replacing our oven with a silver one too and will be on the hunt for deals for that too!

Living Room Makeover For The New Year

A living room makeover is our focus for the new year to make our living room a little cosier. Over the last 4 years since we moved in there has been several changes made to our living room but I am still not happy. We had a refit of our toilet, bathroom and kitchen a year or so ago. That side of the flat looks much better but now need we need to update the other half of the flat too.

Living Room Makeover – Choosing A Sofa

The first thing I want to replace as part of our living room makeover is our sofa. We bought a cheap temporary replacement last year but we need something sturdier and a lot comfier! I love sitting in the corner as I feel much more supported so it has to be a corner sofa. My back makes me sit at strange angles so I need a sofa that has thicker cushions than what we currently have too.

Corner Sofa’s

Fishpools have some fantastic fabric corner sofa’s which I have been looking through. They have so many options available perfect for any living room makeover! I prefer fabric to leather as it is warmer in the cold months and you don’t stick in the summer! I want a sofa that is big and comfortable for us all to snuggle up on and watch films but I also want something that looks smart. Fishpools have some lovely sofa’s to choose from so I have been checking out their corner sofas.

Living Room Makeover - Fishpools Hollywood Corner

I love this Hollywood Corner sofa, it looks stylish whilst still being a comfortable sofa. There are several options for this sofa and additional products such as foot stools. We have the corner on the right when buying a new sofa because of how our living room sits. The cushions are foam-filled with a fibre topper for maximum comfort which sounds perfect for me! I would definitely get the pillow back option for comfort too.

Décor Ideas

If I had a sofa like that I think the rest of the décor would fall into place much better. I still need to decide on paints but think this would look lovely with deep purple and cream walls. I think I will carry on moving over to black wooded furniture too, it does get dusty quick but it looks much nicer!

What do you think of the Hollywood Corner Sofa? Are you having a living room makeover for the new year?

Ordering Blackout Blind

Our Order

The girls chose an exact fit Vitra Kitty Blackout Blind to go with their very pink bedroom. Their blind recently broke and we’ve had to use a peg to keep it up during the day! As promised we were kept updated throughout the entire order process. I received an email to let me know the order had been confirmed, dispatched from the factory and when the blind was due to arrive. It’s really reassuring to know exactly when your order will arrive.

Installing The Blind

The Vitra Kitty Blackout Blind arrived rather quickly, much to the girls delight! They have needed a new blind for a little while now and were so pleased they would still have a lovely pink one to match their overly pink bedroom. It arrived well packaged with the brackets needed. It was fairly simple to put up (once we charged the drill!) and it looks lovely in the girls bedroom.

Vitra Kitty blackout blind

The Vitra kitty blackout blind goes nicely with the other pinks in the girls room. As we were able to order to measure and have the overlap we needed it actually blocks out the light even during the day. Our last one let far too much light in, the main reason Izzy rarely naps! I’m hopeful that she will actually manage to sleep in the day now when she does need it. The fact the blind works so smoothly is a relief too, I couldn’t open or close the previous blind myself. Now I can open and close it with ease making the odd occasion I put the girls to bed alone slightly less of a challenge. Win all round!

With guides to help you along the way and free samples to help you pick the prefect blind, MakeMyBlinds make ordering blinds a stress-free process.
