Oh we love a kitchen makeover! And we know that you all do too, so we just had to share this gorgeous kitchen transformation we saw on Instagram. Tilly of @tillyattwentysix has totally changed her dated, basic, oh let's just say it, boring inherited kitchen into a colourful masterpiece. Would you believe this is exactly the same kitchen?!

Make sure you head over to Tilly's account too to check out her gorgeous, inspiring home and check out the highlights called 'Kitchen' to follow her kitchen revamp journey.

Hmm... it's not awful, but it doesn't have much style to it does it? But the bones of the kitchen are totally fine, so what would you spend loads of money on a new kitchen. There is so much you can do to an old kitchen, as Tilly has proved...

Same kitchen, whole different vibe! We love how colourful it now is, all done with just paint too. Tilly started by painting the current kitchen cupboards doors (we have a guide to painting kitchen cabinets if you need it) and replacing all the hardware with gorgeous gold ones. Then she replaced the tiles with these lovely pink metro ones, they look so fab with the dark green – again tiling a kitchen splashback it totally something you can do your self.

Wallpaper in a kitchen can also make a massive difference too and add loads of colour and interest. Actually, even if you are renting you can upgrade your kitchen with wallpaper, yes they make peel and stick, removable wallpaper now – just check out all the options on Wayfair. We have a whole gallery of kitchen wallpaper ideas in our gallery so be sure to head over there for more inspiration. 

How cool do the bright pink chairs look against the darker wallpaper? And the pinks in the wallpaper work so well with the pinks in the tiles that are on the other side of the kitchen. Feeling like you can tackle your kitchen makeover too? Us too! Thanks for the inspo Tilly.
