The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a home, and the design of your cabinetry can really set the mood of the space. If you’ve lived in your home for many years, and your taste in design has changed, consider replacing or updating the cabinets to meet your new vision for your kitchen. Here are 3 things you should know about making changes to your kitchen cabinetry:
1. Remember that simply repainting your cabinets is an option. If the cabinets are a dark cherry, consider painting them white to give the room a larger feel. If the cabinets are a light oak, painting them black or gray will give the space a more trendy look. Repainting cabinets is a much less ambitious project than a full replacement, and will be easier on your budget. If you like the style of your cabinets but just don’t care for the color anymore, painting them is a great option.
2. If you decide that you want a different cabinet style, or want to add glass doors or other interesting visual effects, another option is to keep the overall cabinet structure and just replace the doors. You can update the hinges so they disappear when the doors are closed, and you can also add the soft-close option if you prefer those conveniences.
3. If a total kitchen cabinet replacement is necessary because you’re doing a full scale remodel, remember that a big project takes proper planning and budgeting. It’s crucial that you hire a professional for the job to ensure you get a lasting and satisfying result. Talking to your local Mr. Handyman representative about your cabinet replacement needs is the best way to kickstart your investment in new kitchen cabinetry.
