From a fresh coat of paint to a flashy new mixer, when it comes to decorating, it’s all in the details. Here are our latest ideas for ways to update your kitchen, with the help of AMA Rewards partners that can help you do it for less.
TRY COLOURFUL APPLIANCES FROM STOKES
Opting for colourful appliances and hoods is a great way to assert your style. But if tangerine feels like too much for a central appliance, there are plenty of bold options on smaller ones over at Stokes. Think a tomato red toaster or a milkshake maker in retro mint.

GO FOR CONTRASTING SHADES BY DULUX
Nothing brightens up a dull space like a fresh coat of paint. And a quick trip to your nearest Dulux paint shop will get you inspired. Who doesn’t love a white kitchen? For a dramatic contrast, think about navy for your millwork. This combination works beautifully with wood, brass and marble accents. AMA members save 25% and earn 3% in reward dollars on all regular-price Dulux paints.
ADD FRESH FLOWERS FROM TELEFLORA
Fresh flowers or vivid greens add instant colour and cheer to a kitchen, especially as we enter the winter months. Expecting guests? Teleflora will personally deliver a bloom-packed arrangement to your door. And for something with a longer life span, consider an elegant orchid or a hearty succulent for the kitchen island or window sill. AMA members save 20% and earn 5% in reward dollars with Teleflora.

MAKE THE MOST OF WALLS, SHELVES AND LIGHTING FROM BOUCLAIR
Open shelving for dinner and glassware is a trend that’s here to stay. Copper pots and vintage cookbooks make for lovely display items, and provide a traditional contrast to your modern plates. Bouclair carries an eclectic range of small decor options, such as glass, ceramic and wood vases, that will also add instant texture and colour to your home.
Even the drabbest of decors can be transformed with good lighting. A beautiful ceiling lamp doubles as a source of light and artful centre point. Bouclair has dozens of dramatic options, including vintage inspired sputnik options.
Whether you opt for a wall chock-full of pictures or one bold statement, art is a wonderful way to bring whimsy, humour and character to a kitchen. Bouclair offers options that range from abstract, to wildlife or nature. AMA members save 5% in-store and online at Bouclair.
Finally, know that that adding some flair to your kitchen doesn’t need to cost a lot, especially when you shop with AMA Rewards partners.
