WHY buy more when you can recycle for less?
Holidays mean DIY for many of us, with cooking being the focus of many.
The cost of a new kitchen can cost an average of £ 8,000, but there are budget tips to reduce that price.
From covering your fridge to painting your cabinets, here’s how to improve it Bank holiday weekend.
CLEAN THESE CABINETS: Updating cabinets with a lick of paint is the fastest way to create a glamorous new look.
Bold colors such as teal and navy are popular right now. First of all, you need to clean to get rid of any fat. You can buy a commercial all-purpose degreaser for around £ 12, but a bucket of lukewarm water and diluted dishwashing liquid will also do the trick and it costs just 50p from Asda.
SAVE: £ 11.50
BRUSH : Then give those cabinets a lick of paint. Wilko has an affordable range – get the quick-drying cabinet furniture paint for £ 10 for 750ml. It’s much cheaper than Dulux, £ 19 at B&Q.
Use masking tape to cover the handles for a more professional finish.
SAVE: £ 9
REFRIGERATOR SAVINGS: A new fridge or freezer can cost hundreds, but you can give your old one a makeover with vinyl wrap.
There are some great affordable ones on Amazon and you can watch YouTube videos to see how to apply them.
I’m also passionate about vinylrevolution.co.uk where you can get a selection of block colors, starting at £ 24.99, depending on the size.
FANCY FLOORS: If you’re not one of the lucky ones who pull out their linoleum to find the perfect parquet, don’t worry – you can get a wood effect parquet in no time with the pale gray herringbone vinyl at Tapi Bernini style) for 13, £ 99 per square meter.
To save even more, use vinyl tile stickers to create a chic look for less.
Studio.co.uk is offering 11 packs of monochrome tiles in a pretty pattern for just £ 5.99 per pack.

Ice cream, anyone?
Aldi sells an ice cream maker for £ 29.99 as one of the store’s special purchases – and it’s super easy to use, promising easy-to-make soft serve ice cream in just 15 to 25 minutes.
The machine is available online only and produces about a liter of ice, which means there will be enough to handle the whole family.
I LOVE a Strawberry Fab popsicle, £ 2.20 for a six pack at Morrisons. But Gianni’s Ice Blitz, 89p for six at Aldi, is a pretty savvy trade.
SAVE: £ 1.31
