HOW TO DESIGN
A BUDGET KITCHEN
Budgeting can be a bit of a challenge, but once you break each component of your kitchen down, it really is a piece of cake. A budget is required for any kitchen, big or small, so the Exeter Kitchen Store has put together some ideas of how you can scrimp and save.
Check out our guide on how you can save or where you could alternatively splash some extra cash depending on your design priorities. Of course, this list isn’t the be all and end all, so make sure you check in with the team to discuss your own, unique situation!
Colours make a huge difference to how kitchens look – especially when it comes to smaller kitchens! To help you get some ideas together, we have some suggestions of colour palettes that work effectively in compact kitchens.
When it comes to small kitchens, we’re a firm believer in keeping designs bright and airy, so we’ve listed some tips on how to use white, grey and light colours to your advantage. Of course, we view this as a general rule, so feel free to use these ideas as a basis for your kitchen design and alter them to work within your home.
