June is the month where we celebrate dads, and what do dads like most to do? That’s right, DIY! So, we will focus on DIY projects that dad can do in the kitchen. Why not grab the family and make an occasion of it?

Paint Your Kitchen Cupboards

One great and simple way to breathe life back into a kitchen is by painting the cupboard doors. Doing this yourself is one of the most cost-effective, clever DIYs that will completely transform your kitchen in a matter of days. Make sure that you clean and prime the surface before you start painting. It is also vital that you take your time and make sure that you choose the correct type of paint for the job.

Install New Handles

Your cupboards are now looking great with the brand-new paint job. The following DIY step in giving your kitchen a facelift is to replace your cupboard and drawer handles. The style of handle you choose can really change the look and feel of your kitchen. You can select a T-bar handle if you want a modern look. However, if you like to stick to classics, then the cupped handle is just for you.

Change Your Kitchen Taps

Changing the taps in your kitchen can give it a whole new look and feel. Firstly, you should decide if you want taps or mixers. Once you have decided on that, then you can choose the colour and style you want. Here, your options are almost endless. Changing the taps is relatively simple, and you can have it done in a couple of hours.

Improve Your Kitchen Storage

It doesn’t take much before a kitchen can start to look cluttered. An easy way to avoid this is to increase your storage. There are a few different ways you can achieve this. Why not look at installing a peg board like what you use in the garage to store your tools? You can use this to hang pots, pans, and cooking utensils. You could also hang rails in the kitchen for extra storage. Another great idea is to create extra storage with pallets on your wall. You are only limited by your imagination.

Mount Baskets on the Wall

You can keep your kitchen surfaces clutter-free by hanging wire baskets on the wall from their bases. They can be used to display cookbooks, spice jars, and condiments or to keep utensils handy. If you feel creative, you can turn this into a beautiful statement wall.

Create Bespoke Herb Holders

If you or your loved one enjoys cooking, then you won’t go wrong with creating your own bespoke herb holders. The concept of these herb holders is to have direct access to fresh herbs whenever needed. The design of these is entirely up to you and your space constraints. For example, you could build a nice rack to go on your counter to hold the pots of herbs. Or, you could also create a vertical herb garden to go against an open wall.

Create Your Own Chalkboard

It can be easy to forget items when shopping if we do not have a list. A practical solution is to create a chalkboard on which to write a shopping list. All that is required for this is an empty wall or even the inside of a cupboard door and some chalkboard paint. Ensure that the surface is cleaned and primed, and then just paint away. You could even create another chalkboard for your children to doodle on.
