Woman transforms her kitchen for just £200 using ingenious products

  • Charlotte provides a step by step guide to get the look

Most of us think transforming a kitchen involves spending hundreds on new cabinets, tiles and worktops. But one DIY-savvy mum has given us all a masterclass in renovating your kitchen on a serious budget.

Charlotte Greedy, from Pontyclun, Wales, a mum of two, totally changed the look of her kitchen and spent just £200 on the process. 

Charlotte, who posts photos of her home renovations on her Instagram at @missgreedyshome, used innovative products like stick on tiles, worktop paint and new cupboard handles to transform the look of her kitchen. 

Charlotte, who is 26 and is a stay-at-home mum, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: “I came up with the idea when I desperately wanted a new kitchen but just couldn’t afford to buy a brand new one.

"I then had the idea of painting it all to mimic a new kitchen. I bought stick on tiles from a company called Tic Tac Tiles on Amazon to cover my existing tiles and bought Good Home North pole paint from B&Q and painted my worktops!  

"They were a horrible shiny black before and now they're a matte white colour. I then painted my cupboards using Good Home Durable Delware Satin Multi-Surface paint. I used a mini gloss roller from Poundstretcher to apply both the worktop and cupboard paint, and only used a little brush for the hard to get to parts!

"I changed all my cupboard handles, again purchased from B&Q, and I changed my own plug sockets from white to chrome. I bought my flooring off eBay and used a pen knife and spray glue to fit it, and changed my light fitting to a brighter light. It cost around £200 to completely change the kitchen.”

Unsurprisingly, Charlotte is over the moon with her kitchen transformation, saying: "I am absolutely in love with the transformation and it's made my kitchen look brand new! Once the kitchen was complete I felt like I could be proud of my kitchen, something I never was. Whenever I go in there now I absolutely love it instead of loathing to go and make dinner!"

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “If you’re tired of the look of your kitchen, take a leaf out of Charlotte’s book and use clever products like stick on tiles and worktop paint to totally transform its appearance on a serious budget. I can’t believe what a difference £200 makes!"
