As a dominant design feature throughout a kitchen, there's no denying that changing the countertops can instantly make an old kitchen look new and feel more luxurious. Physically replacing worktops with new material will, of course, cost you more, because countertops are sold as standard sizes so quite often you end up paying for more than you need. So what's the budget alternative? Vinyl.
And before you shudder at the mention know that vinyl wraps have come a long way and can now be used with amazing effects for inexpensive kitchen renovations. Check out some of the 5.4 million#kitchenvinylwrap TikTok posts as examples of how popular it's become in recent years.
“Vinyl is an easy, cost-effective way to update worktops; but you can also use it on drawers, cupboards, and tiles,” says Mike. “You can purchase vinyl from any DIY retailer or home store in a range of patterns and colors from mosaics, marble, and terrazzo. It’s a great way to try a new design you may be considering for a renovation later down the line."
"All you need to apply the vinyl is something to smooth the sheet down with, such as a smoothing tool, and some silicone to seal your edges. It’s a full kitchen makeover you could do in less than a week!”
