Most of us perform a spring clean to clear out the cobwebs, but how many of us make the most of our winter downtime and upgrade our kitchens? Why not get ahead of next year, and update your kitchen now, so you’re ready for this winter’s entertainment? For those short on time or trying to adhere to a budget, this festive upgrade doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul or remodel. You can make small, easy changes and add personal touches to breathe new life into your kitchen, ready for the holidays.

A lick of paint

A fresh coat of paint can always help rejuvenate a space, but this doesn't have to be arduous. You have a multitude of options when it comes to colours, you could give the whole room a new colour or just a fresh coat of the current colour - this is a really simple way to revitalise your kitchen, covering marks, scuffs, fades and spills, making it feel like new again. Alternatively, if you want a quicker way of adding colour to your kitchen, you could opt for a singular accent wall, whether that be in the form of a block colour of paint, patterned wallpaper, a green wall full of indoor plants, or a dedicated area for all your photos and artwork. There are so many options to choose from to really liven up your culinary space.

Colours like wonderful whites and brilliant blues can give your kitchen a clean, fresh, wintery touch, whilst gorgeous greens and beautiful browns can ensure a warmer more natural finish, providing a gentle base in which to complement your winter kitchen decor. Refreshing your kitchen with colour can make the room feel bigger and more inviting, ensuring everyone will want to spend Christmas at your house this year.

A solid surface 

No kitchen is complete without a solid foundation at its centre. Your surfaces are where you prep your food and cook hot meals. They’re where you help your children with their homework and spend time catching up with friends and family over a coffee. So, when you’re considering updating your kitchen this winter, why not take stock of your worktops? Are you happy with the way they look? Are they serving your kitchen as well as they could? Are they chip, scratch, stain, and heat resistant? If not, it might be time to upgrade. 

A high-quality, durable worktop from Caesarstone will ensure you have a sound base that will last for many Christmases to come. With our wide range of porcelain and quartz surfaces, available in a variety of different styles and colours, there’s no doubt you’ll find one that suits your kitchen. 5141 Frosty Carrina is a stunning quartz surface from our Supernatural Collection. Its graceful powdery-grey veining that permeates through the ivory-white base gives you that wintery feel, all year round. And thanks to our lifetime warranty, you’ll receive the certainty that your surface will remain safe, durable, and timelessly beautiful.

A touch of winter 

You cannot have a winter update without a few festive touches to complete your space, ready for entertaining. The use of natural materials such as wood and foliage is ideal for a more rustic winter decor that can also be used throughout the year or interchanged with seasonal alternatives.  

Cinnamon-scented candles, tall twigs tucked into vases and bowls of pinecones can bring an elegant, Christmassy presence to your kitchen. Whilst sprigs of holly sprinkled around the kitchen can introduce dashes of the classic green and red. The light of the candles blended with the red holly berries and the brown hues of the wooden pieces can bring a welcome warmth to whiter palettes. Little extras like these, together with a solid surface and a lick of paint, can hugely upgrade your kitchen with minimum effort and spending, just in time for the festive season with the family.
