3 Ways To Change Your Kitchen Cabinets

Posted on: 26 September 2017

If you want to perk your kitchen up, there are a few ways that you can do it. One of the easiest ways to do it is to do something with your cabinets. That's because your cabinets are pretty much the most visible part of your kitchen. Doing some work on them will make sure that your kitchen looks updated. There are a number of kitchen cabinetry solutions that you can use, depending on what your budget is. 

Changing Your Handles and Pulls

If you have a small budget and you want to make some changes, then you may consider doing little things like changing out your handles and drawer pulls. It may not make a large change, but even something small can make you feel like you have done something new for your kitchen. 

Paint/Stain Your Cabinets

Another option is to change the color of your cabinets. You will have to make sure that you have plenty of time to do this, as well as all of the right equipment. You are going to need to have some sandpaper so that you can sand off any loose flakes of varnish or paint. You may also need to use stripper on the cabinets, depending on what you have already on there.

If you are going to do a lot of sanding or stripping, you will probably want to take as much of the cabinets outside as possible to do the work. If you can't do it outside, then maybe you can do the work in a garage. It's just going to be messy and there are going to be fumes that you probably don't want to have in your house. You will also probably want to have a dust mask or respirator as well, depending on what kind of fumes you are going to be dealing with. 

Get All New Cabinets

Of course, if you can afford it, getting all new cabinets is a great way to update your cabinet. You can choose to go with a whole new style, wood, color, what have you. If you are going to get new cabinets, you have options. One is that you can go to a home improvement store and buy some cabinets that will work in your kitchen and get them installed. Another option is that you can hire a carpenter or cabinet maker to come in and make some custom cabinets for your kitchen.
