Update Your Kitchen with Cupboard Handles

Updating your tired kitchen does not need to be an expensive and time consuming project. With a few simple steps, there is a much simpler and cost effective way to give your kitchen space the upgrade it needs without calling in the experts. For our tips on how to upgrade your kitchen, scroll down!


Give your kitchen the upgrade it deserves by conducting a clear out, applying a fresh lick of paint, fitting new cupboard handles, and organising your kitchen cupboard contents so that it brings you peace!


Clear Out


Start by clearing out each drawer in the kitchen. It’s the heart of the home, the hub of the household, and every kitchen has that one random drawer that gets filled with random bits and bobs over time. From single-use straws and grocery receipts to the little hand wipe packets that you get with your takeaway (which reminds you how much you have spent on takeaways!), this drawer needs a sort out! Go through each cupboard and dispose of any clutter, plus broken mugs and expired food items.




Give your kitchen an instant upgrade with a brand new paint job! For a luxurious aesthetic, consider painting your cupboards and drawers in a dark grey. This trendy shade is a must-have for many fashion-forward, modern homes. Dark, daring kitchen cupboards create quite the statement and contrast when styled with bright white walls and countertops.


Once you have chosen your desired paint colour, you will need to remove all the knobs and handles then apply masking tape to your cupboard hinges. Place dust sheets on the floor to protect it from accidental paint drips. Wash your cupboard doors with a mixture of warm soapy water and dry it with a cloth. Once they are completely dry, you may need to sand down the existing cupboard surface, although this step is not required for surfaces with a high gloss finish. Apply your primer and begin painting with a synthetic paint brush. Apply two coats of coloured paint to ensure a long-lasting finish.




Replace your existing hardware with new stylish cupboard handles or kitchen cupboard knobs. Our selection of cupboard handles offers a huge and attractive choice of finishes, sizes and shapes including D-Shaped, T-Bar, Curved and designer kitchen cupboard door handles.

If you are new to the DIY scene, just remember - righty-tighty and lefty-loosey!



Once your kitchen cabinets have been painted and embellished with new hardware, you can start putting your cutlery, mugs, and dinnerware back into storage. Storage space is like valuable real estate and with such little storage space offered by most properties, it’s important to make the most of it! Take advantage of plastic takeaway containers by placing them inside your drawers for storing your bits and bobs.


Store pans on their side in between dividers and add custom labels to your refillable spice jars and dry food containers. Make use of drawer dividers to organise your kitchen tools and cutlery. Clear acrylic risers can be used in cupboards as a custom shelving solution for your plates, bowls, and tableware so that it’s easy to move dishes in and out of the cupboard.
