How to easily give your kitchen a modern makeover

Creating the kitchen of your dreams can be easier than you think!

As we spend more and more time at home, it’s becoming far more important that we create a space that is both inspiring and rejuvenating.  Updating your kitchen cabinetry can be a fantastic way to give your kitchen an entirely new look and feel and with the help of kaboodle, you can create a great-value kitchen that is built to cook, teach, celebrate and stand the test of everyday life.

The new range from kaboodle kitchen is a curated collection of tonal schemes including timber-look woodgrains, muted greens, greys and shades of blue.  Get the designer look, without the designer price tag by using kaboodle’s customisable options to maximise the full potential of your space.  It’s so much easier to now create a custom-looking kitchen at the fraction of the cost, without compromising on style.

Timber has been making a comeback into kitchens over the last few years, and can create a statement in your kitchen without having to go too far out of your creative comfort zone.  Light and dark timber tones can add an element of textural warmth to your kitchen, adding character your space and sensory appeal.   With the new premium melamine timber-look woodgrains added to the kaboodle kitchen range, there’s no shortage of options to add a new element into your kitchen.

Inspired by nature, the new colour palette of muted greens and earthy grey hues bring a freshness to your kitchen, and are a great way to take a step up from using as an accent colour but to make more of a statement in your home. Olive Grove is a beautifully bold but natural colour option, while cardomom and kaleo are great options to help create a more soft, neutral palette to your kitchen.

If you’re after a more striking statement, the new shades of blue and grey from kaboodle will bring a fresh, contemporary feel to your home interior.  These shades create a striking statement but keep your kitchens looking fresh – danish blue provides a pop of colour that can be added as an accent to your kitchen space (and pairs beautifully with whites and timbers), or if you are looking to bring a touch of sophistication to your kitchen, poppy seed is the charcoal hue for you.

Not all whites are the same! Kaboodle’s latest range of white colours boast a neutral charm that can easily be paired with more vibrant colours and textures.  Feta whip is a classic matte white-tone shade – and with anti-fingerprint technology, this provides a perfect solution for a modern, minimalist kitchen.  If you’re looking for a cool-tone white, white pepper is the perfect shade to work alongside not only other neutral shades but also dark greys and blacks.


Wild garlic is the perfect mix between grey and white, and can easily create either a classic or contemporary look when you pair it with timber, marble or stone textures.  And the sour cream shade is beautifully light and bright, working perfectly to bring more lightness into your home and complement any colour scheme.

Kaboodle’s top tips when planning your kitchen design:

  •  Consider choosing laminate benchtops as a cost-effective alternative to expensive materials such as stone and concrete.
  •  Maximise your working area by choosing a kitchen layout that complements your space.  If you have enough room, consider adding an island benchtop or a generous working bench area to act as a centralised meeting point for your family.
  •  Be sure to include clear access to the three main touchpoints of your kitchen – the fridge, oven and pantry
  • Think about how the kitchen style with work with the rest of your home decor.   An easy way to achieve a designer look is to integrate a cohesive theme throughout your home. This can be as simple as using the same door profile or handles for cabinetry in your kitchen, laundry, bathroom and living space. It’s also a good idea to consider the era of your home and match accordingly.
